FLO FENTON’S INTOUCH YOGA BYRON BAY

Byron Bay Mini Yoga Retreat

AUGUST 17-18 2024

Overview

Come back to yourself, with deeply immersive yoga practice led by yoga master and yoga therapist Flo Fenton. Take this time to pause, reset your nervous system, reground your senses, and replenish your energy. Only when our own cup is full can we truly be of service to all those we love in life!

Within a stones throw of the healing vibrations and soothing sounds of beautiful Tallow Beach, Suffolk Park Hall is a quaint, timber floored community hall built by the community, for the community. It is where Flo teaches her regular classes, so all equipment is provided.

Accommodation is not included within the cost of the workshop. If you are coming from afar, make a weekend of it by staying in one of Suffolk Park’s beautiful beach side hotel’s or guest houses. Make sure you choose somewhere within a walk of Suffolk Park Community Hall unless bringing your car. Feel free to ask for advice on accommodation!

This is a boutique experience with a maximum number of 13 attendees. The intention is for it to be like a mini retreat-full of rest and replenishment but also the refreshment of connection to others on the same path, a serene environment, and delicious food!

For those staying Saturday night, a group dining experience will be arranged in Byron Bay!

Lunch provided Sunday at the beautiful Suffolk Park Hall.

This workshop would be useful for all practitioners and teachers alike to enhance both personal practice and teaching skills.

This workshop allows Yoga Australia members to accrue 5 CPD points per day.

Awakening the Pranamaya Kosha

According to the vedas, we are composed of more than just a physical body. There are five distinct layers from gross to subtle. One of these is the Pranamaya Kosha, the subtle or energy body. Made up of the Pancha Vayau (5 energies) the chakras (energy centres) and nadis (energy channels) this layer of our being can be cleansed and awakened through use of curated ancient tantric practices including asana, meditations, visualisations, mantra and specific breathing techniques.

When the energy channels are open, the vayus balanced and the chakras aligned, we have not only good health and clear perception, but we literally evolve our consciousness and begin to inhabit buddhi, the higher mind.

On this weekend, we will learn techniques to help get us in touch with and awaken  our subtle selves.
