This retreat combines Kum Nye-Tibetan Yoga with outdoor nature study for us to have a direct experience of how we each resonate with the five elements of nature.
Kum Nye Yoga comes from a fusion of Tibetan, Chinese and Ayurvedic medical systems. These yoga practices directly active Qi - energy flow in the meridians which nourish the internal organs of the body. Each day we explore the relationship between the elements of nature and the functions of the body mind and spirit. You will take home a series of practices which can help free-flow and harmonise each organ system enhancing overall functions of well-being. “The internal organs systems are the means by which the Five elements are made real in the body” JR Worlsey

Nourishing Our Roots is an exploration of our Yin essence - our feminine power which expresses through our inner life and energy. The Yoga focus of this retreat will include active morning yoga which takes the energy form the organs out to the extremities, balanced by afternoon restorative practices which bring energy back to the core, which can help rejuvenate and refresh the organ systems.
Generally people do not have sufficient language for expressing what we feel and sense inside, even though our instinctual wisdom is all the time attempting to guide us in our lives. On this retreat we look at how the roots of our being are formed and shaped throughout our lives by a combination of inherited influences and daily choices.You will be shown how to recognise your root energy as an invisible hidden power, a Yin energy which is something to tap into and awaken through conscious intent. Like the subtle pull of the moon, Yin energy is receptive, magnetic and potent by its quality of being. In contrast, Yang, like the sun is an active, doing, outgoing masculine energy.
Listen to your Heart ... Follow your Heart ... Open your Heart
But how to do that when my head is so busy ?!
Touching all levels this 7 day teacher training retreat is perfect for leaders, healers, Yoga teachers, parents and others in helping professions. It offers practical instruction on how to teach the head to serve the Heart with body centred Yoga practices for aligning the head and Heart’s circulatory flows. Instinctively most people recognise that an Aligned head and Heart is power in balance. Interestingly science now also evidences how the electro-magnetic (energy) field of the Heart is 60 X stronger than the brain. * Reference: Heart Math Institute
Drawing on a lifetime study of Chinese medicine, Yogic philosophies and the Four Fold Way - Cameron helps people recognise the language of the Heart and ways to engage our common points of unity to create genuine, connection to ourselves and others. The theoretical teachings are balanced with Tibetan Yoga practices which activate the free-flow functions of the internal organs to help reset the body’s natural harmonising functions. To restore and fill our reservoirs of energy we use Yoga Nidra to refresh the deep levels of our energy systems.
