Boundaries and Space: a Forrest Yoga retreat with Sandra Robinson and Claire Mace
Thursday 1st to Sunday 4th August 2019 at Trigonos, Nantlle, Gwynedd, LL54 6BW
What are your boundaries? What is you, what is not you? Do you perceive these boundaries as self-imposed limitations, as psychological constructs, or something else? And how can exploring your boundaries help you to create more space in your life?
In this retreat you will work with how you experience your own boundaries: where they are, how you set them and what happens when they get crossed. You will also explore the crucial relationship between boundaries and your power to say “yes” or “no”.
One of the gifts of boundary setting is in enabling you to experience more space. In some systems of thought, space is seen as one of the five elements, along with fire, water, earth and wind. How do you relate to the helpful and unhelpful aspects of space in your life? Do you fill every gap in your schedule with busy-ness and scheduled activity? Do you like to have a lot of space around you?
In this four day, three-night retreat you will work with Forrest Yoga practices and process work to explore your relationship to boundaries and space. There will be the option to join in with guided walks around the area, to book a massage, or listen to storytelling in the library before bedtime.
You will stay at Trigonos Retreat centre in the Nantlle valley in Snowdonia, amid a stunning landscape of mountains and lakes. The vegetarian food is high quality and delicious, with many of the vegetables grown on site, and the rooms are clean and comfortable.
You can check in from 3pm on the Thursday, and we’ll start with a Forrest Yoga session at 5pm. The retreat will end after lunch on the Sunday at around 2pm. If you are coming by public transport, the nearest train station is Bangor.
All options include dinners on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and lunches on Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Options with a room also include breakfast.
