3 Days Autumn Nourish You Weekend Meditation and Yoga Retreat in Spain

Autumn Nourish Retreat

After the hectic holiday season, would you like to press pause and recharge?

Julie invites you on a retreat for you, where the body is allowed, surrender into deep rest encouraged and a rediscovery of your body’s natural wisdom cultivated. Inviting you to reconnect to your inherent clarity, strength, and vitality as you dive into Autumn.

A yoga and meditation practice suitable for all, with or without previous experience of yoga.

This yoga invites you to a deep listening of the body, an awakening of the spine through playful exploration of our body through the asanas, through breathing, meditation and simply arriving into a sense of wholeness. Cultivating freedom, strength, and flexibility of body and mind in movement.

A space to connect with you this autumn. An opportunity to sit and listen with your heart at whatever point you are in your life all within the community of the group.
