As the earth begins her slow tilt back towards the sun, we invite you to rest into the quietude of winter before unfurling body and intentions gently into the light.

Join Sonsie & Lana on this retreat at Space Studio. Be guided through soothing and energising practices – traditional and current, woven together with practical concepts and approaches that support and sustain our wellbeing, energy and ease.

Matariki is a traditional time of new beginnings. What is calling you to begin? What is too important to ignore? Come and seed and water aspirations for creating a new seeds... a new beginning.

There will be opportunities for gentle inquiry and also to journey into silence too; to attune to the deep reservoir of your inner landscape and intuition. This retreat will offer the precious gifts of presence, enquiry, inspiration and rejuvenation.

Sonsie Elliott:
I teach an alignment-based vinyasa flow. For me, ‘flow’ is a state of mind. Yoga flow is about full immersion in each movement and breath. I encourage students to embody the rhythm of their breath and to observe without judgment of, or resistance to, the natural flow of awareness.

My teaching style uses breath and alignment to enable students to explore how they are in this moment, to express their own truth and to experience constant change or impermanence. Yoga Nidra and Mantra are other deep practices that I love to share.

My main teachers and inspiration are Jason Crandell and Vipassana meditation.
E-RYT 500

Lana Bright:
For over 25 years I have been leading and guiding individuals and groups to support them to meet life’s opportunities and challenges. My calling is to, ‘discover & experience happiness & fulfilment in everyday life’. My abiding question, 'how can I be here more fully, more lightly?'
