Saturday 24 February 2018 & Sunday 25 February, 2018
Full Retreat Rate $245
In February 2018 Celia Roberts continues to bring a wonderful alignment of research based Yoga Therapy for pain. This weekend in particular Celia focuses on head, neck, and shoulder pain. Joined by Samantha Lindsay-German, this weekend offers a multitude of body, mind, and spiritual therapy. Postures, poses, breathing, and relaxation techniques for upper body pain and misalignment will focus on an awareness of the body – Research has shown that “these movements are ‘intricate’ and highlight the body - mind nature of yoga that emphasizes awareness, concentration, and bidirectional communication between the mental, nervous, skeletal, and muscular system” (source).
This weekend is not to be missed and will further enhance home practice and provide remedies for head, neck, and shoulder related symptoms such as migraines or frequent headaches.
Celia will guide you through specific Asana’s that have been proven to cultivate holistic well-being. Techniques of internal and external rotations, mobilization for shoulder joints, triggers of relaxation, as well as resistance work will be explored.
Be enticed by an educational morning that surrounds a personal focus based in specific Ayurvedic and emotional body work. We will explore pain in combination with body alignment and protection for reduced head, neck, jaw, temples, eye and shoulder pain.
Samantha Lindsay-German hosts this wonderful afternoon where active meditations open and allow Pranic flow. If you struggle with a foggy mind, stress, external or internal tension, fatigue, or you are simply seeking a meditation that has a strong focus on allowing the body to move to its free will in order to support energetic and pranic flow. This is a fun and joyful exploration of the body and ways to shake or dance away internal stressors and tensions.

Yoga Therapy for Head, Neck, Shoulders, including the power of inversions
Day Rate $148 (includes afternoon session)
Single Session Rate $80
Celia will continue this captivating weekend by teaching you first hand the benefits of inversions and postural alignment. Inversions not only facilitate complete body strengthening, so to, inversions enhance the strength of “cardiovascular, lymph, endocrine, and digestive systems—in addition to enhancing prana, or life force”. Further, alignment is central to hormonal well being. We will explore how our posture practised with alignment determines our physiological balance. We will look at how postures can create a sense of confidence and leadership as well as relaxation through our physiology. We will also explore how freeing this area of the body effects neuroplastic changes in the brain, and further emotional regulation, concentration and intelligence.
Inversions and postural alignments Asana’s are powerful mechanisms toward holistic well-being, and if you have ever wondered how to begin cultivating these practices for yourself, this retreat is a must! Even if you have never attempted an inversion, be sure to come along and learn with the best.
