Spring Awakening Retreat

STUDLAND, DORSET

Transform and Rebalance 

with SUE CHOPPING

Join Sue in beautiful Studland, Dorset, when nature is stirring and we begin to emerge and unfurl from the cocoon of the winter months. Expect wonderfully nurturing Yoga, walks along Studland beach, supper in front of the fire at the ‘Bankes Arms’ and local organic food.

balance

We will celebrate and create opportunities for positive change at this point when we are poised between opposite forces of light and dark, receptive and active, unconscious and conscious and inner and outer. These forces can be united within us so that we are whole and balanced individuals. We will cultivate this dynamic of opposites to transform and manifest actions that come from the heart. Staying in accommodation with log fires, enjoy walks along Studland beach, supper in front of the fire at the ‘Bankes Arms’ and the local organic food at the 'Pig-on-the-beach' hotel. These hotels have many options for accommodation but please book early to secure your room.
