...MOVING BEYOND THE ASANA...
Experience yoga through the energising practices of vinyasa, pranayama kriya yoga and gong baths for a whole weekend spent in retreat.
Setting the tone with a magnificent opening ceremony on Friday night, Amanda & Leo will take you on a restorative and meditative journey, preparing your mind and body for a full moon cleanse and a smooth transition into Spring.
Delicious and nutritious food will be served throughout the weekend along with healthy sugar/dairy/gluten free snacks.
Optional alternative treatments such as aromatherapy massage, reflexology, sound therapy, abdominal digestive massage & cranio sacral will be provided in a calm and blissful environment to support both physical and emotional needs during your time with us.
With up to 14 hours of practice during the weekend and the liberty of choice to do as little or as much as you wish to do, you will find yourself immersed in stillness from sunrise till after sunset. The land on which 42 Acres finds its roots is simply spellbinding both on an aesthetic and energetic level, and we are delighted to be hosting there for a weekend.

...MOVING BEYOND THE ASANA... Experience the 8 limbs of Pantajali Yoga through the healing art of Yoga, Gong Baths, and Meditation during this 2-day retreat.
Leo teaches at Indaba in Marylebone, the Life Centre in Notting Hill and Samsara in Wimbledon, London.
When I rose, I was struck how (pleasantly) disoriented I felt, like I was floating on air.
I was truly surprised how quickly I was able to relax. My jaw and lower face had relaxed to such an extent, I was having trouble formulating sentences for the first few minutes!
The effects lasted well into the evening and even the next morning, when I felt an incredible sense of calm and focus.

Review from Blissful Blog:
"Leo is a sound healer and composer with a lot of talent.
The Gong meditation experience was great as it allowed me to take out time for myself, to be mindful also try to switch off my mind and overall be purposeful. I would highly recommend it, everyone needs a bit of switching off and creating time to just stop."
