The morning Yoga Flow and Meditation class is centred on movements coordinated with the breath. Agata will remind you to bring your awareness back to the breath which will allow you to go deeper into the experience of being one with the body energy and mind. This class focuses on rejuvenation and gentle warming, starting the fire within the body that transforms. As cyclical moon creatures, we will work on getting rid of the old, and making space to bring the new.

The evening Restorative Yoga  revolves around resting yoga poses and deep relaxation.

Additionally, guided meditations are a lovely way to let go and be guided by Agata’s  soothing voice to enter a deep relaxing state of awareness.

Participants will attend 2 (2hr long each) Nutrition and Healthy Cooking classes where they will be involved in food preparation, cooking and tasting.

Recipes will feature feel-good foods for women and discover the secret of balanced meals including healthy fats, carbs and snacks.

Participants will receive a handout with all the recipes.

The aim is to spark creativity and motivation to make healthy choices and cook delicious meals long after the retreat.
