Rebalance Weekend Retreat

Find balance this weekend!

Be supported with the gentle guidance of  Andrea Leplae, sharing practices from Yoga (Hatha, Restorative, Vinyasa, Ashtanga) teachings, and Pilates, alongside Ayurvedic concepts, offering you tools to shift your balance, at home, at work and in your mindset.

Balance is never a ‘set it and forget it’, right!  With constant change, eventually we learn to move with change, shift our perspective on things, and re-balance what matters, not forgetting the importance of self-care and self-awareness. This Retreat will help you better understand yourself, especially as we explore ‘Ajna’, the 3rd-Eye Chakra, the seat of self-knowing.

‘Blossom Yoga’ is Andrea’s own special formula of ‘undoing’, prior to ‘doing’ anything!  A typical class begins with Hatha, Restorative and Therapeutic poses, slowly building up to short Vinyasa Yoga sequences and more challenging asana.  There is no experience required and all physical abilities are welcome.

The Creation of 'Blossom Yoga'

‘Blossom Yoga’ was originally created by Andrea in her job as a Youth Worker with pregnant Teens. She opened a dedicated facility in this in a much-needing community (2005).  Andrea has watched people unfold and recover, through the Blossom Yoga practice, from low self-esteem, self-harming, anxiety and addiction. It’s a good formula for anyone coping with life’s obstacles, be they emotional, physical or spiritual. You may be surprised at how one weekend away can lead to a transformational experience for you!
