About the Event

An exciting weekend for anyone wanting to include some cleansing / fasting practices into their self-care .

We will explore this topic from a Yoga lens, drawing on philosphy and guidance from the ancient texts.

This retreat is aimed at being helpful and supportive for everday people. It is not advocating extremes.

There will be appropriate and specific Yoga practices, Meditations, Chants and Yantras to assist with the process of cleansing.

There will be options with food and fasting. The intention IS NOT a full fasting weekend (that may come later).

Some people may want to try intermittent fasting or delayed eating for a period of time. Others may go for liquds only, and others will eat normally and perhaps fast from coffee or cell ph. usage.

All meals will be plant-based, light and nutritious.

There will be time to decide what level of fasting you hope to do.

There is a sauna at this peacful location to support the process over the weekend.

We will come together for a 7pm circle on the Friday night to meet and set our intentions.

There will be a varied programme offered with ample options and plenty of free time also.

As the date approaches I will clarify exactly what sessions will be offered, but the core pracices of Yoga, Meditation, Chanting and Yantra will be the backbone of the weekend.

Accommodation is in clean, warm, shared bunk rooms.

Berwick is a 35-40 min drive south of Dunedin, making an easy start for 7pm Friday. We finish at 12 pm Sunday so you can get home in plenty of time to catch up with family and do "weekend" stuff.

Kate will offer support, guidance and the possibility of individual sessions after the retreat.
