Urban Day Retreat - Friday February 22nd 2019
Hosted by Kym Statham of WOKE Yoga. Taught by Em Cruickshank and Lisa Theodore of WOKE Yoga. Joined by sonic healer Suzy Flowers.
Our intention for you on this day is to build inspiration as the foundation in which you can create from, setting fresh intentions for the year ahead spoken from the heart and framed in abundance.
Join the Woke team for a magical day, designed to inspire and uplift you. Sergeants Mess sits at the water’s edge in the pristine Chowder Bay of Sydney Harbour.
You will be practicing amongst native bushland with breathtaking, sparkling, inner harbour views. It will feel like a breath of fresh air, even though you’re only 20 mins out of the CBD. All the relaxation with none of the travel time.
We begin with a centering meditation practice to dissolve your morning and provide a clear space for your attention to gently land within. It is from this space that you can begin to draw inspiration towards you - inspiration will be the foundation in which we intend to spend our day together.
Joyful Yang Yoga Immersion
An immersive morning yoga practice to explore the theme of possibility, this accessible 2 hour practice will be playful, will challenge your perception of what is possible for you and will uplift you and revive you. All levels are welcome.
100 Mile Lunch
A bespoke sit down lunch, prepared by Executive Chef Nathan Darling, will nourish you. Nathan is insistent on using only the very finest of local produce, which is reflected in our 100-mile locally sourced lunch. The space and time of this glorious sit down lunch will also give you a chance to connect with those around you - those also in inquiry with you!
Intentional Release and Reset
Our afternoon is spent immersed in inquiry - intentional inspiration.
We will unpack powerful methods to assist you to create intentions that are heart based and deeply felt, rather than the old paradigm of resolution often set from a space of lack and thought. To feel and know is infinitely more powerful than to feel and think.
Relaxing Restorative Yin Yoga
Finally we will set those new intentions into the body through a quiet, relaxing yin practice. This is the place where we continue to feel into the truth and desire of the intentions we have worked on throughout the day.
Creating space for your new intention to land, you will be supported by the deeply transformative vibration of sonic sound. In this practice Suzy Flowers will join Em Cruickshank, curating a sound journey specifically attuned to the vibration of intention through the space of the heart. A powerful way to end the day.
