Join us for an inspirational retreat to celebrate Spring at the Mindspace in Aldgate East (114 Whitechapel High St, London E1 7PT)! Nurture your body and mind with a yoga class, a sound healing session and, indulge in delicious organic raw food cooking class. Let's get ready to spring into the new season with renewed vigour and energy.
This retreat welcomes all levels of yoga practice.
We will enjoy a beautiful Yoga class with wonderful Carla Hobart, passionate Yogi and London based teacher. We will then refresh our minds and souls with a soothing Gong Immersion with Eloise Bonel and terminate with a fun raw food cooking class with Lorena Loriato, a brilliant raw food trainer, chef & recipe developer.
3:00 pm: Arrival and welcome tea
3:15 pm: 75 minutes Vinyasa Flow into spring! Come out of hibernation and prepare for Spring in body and mind with this vinyasa flow class. Including twists to tone and awaken and a flowing sequence to refresh and prepare for the shift in seasons. It’s a wonderful time to cleanse and detoxify and a good opportunity to set new intentions for positive change in our lives.
4:30 pm: 60 minutes Sound Healing session to conclude this fantastic vinyasa flow. You will be transported into complete relaxation with the soothing sounds of a gong, which can act as a powerful short cut to deep meditation, relaxation, and mental clarity. Your experience of this session will depend on your own needs and energy of the moment and will be completely unique to you.
5:30 pm: Have fun and learn new techniques on how to prepare a delicious raw food dinner. Our raw food trainer and chef Lorena will teach us how to prepare 2 raw vegan recipes, one savoury and one sweet, which will drive your taste buds nuts. No fire involved, easy, quick, tasty recipes, just as nature intended. And beautiful, of course. because we start eating with our eyes, don't we. The class will be mostly demoed but anyone who is willing to get his/her hands "dirty" is more than welcome and will probably get an extra portion. Oh, and did we mention that raw food is super nutritious and will exponentially enhance the benefits of your yoga class?
Please be informed that we are going to use nuts in both recipes. However, no meat, dairy, poultry, fish, refined sugars and gluten are involved.
