Embodiment & Reconnection Retreat
December 15-17, 2017
Om Waters Floating Retreat Center, Chiang Mai, Thailand
A retreat centered around embodiment ~ for movers, yogis, non-yogis, bodyworkers, lovers of nature, searchers of serenity and inquisitive humans. An inquiry into the nature of movement and stillness in body and mind.
Inspired by the Feldenkrais Method, somatic movement, mindfulness, yin yoga and craniosacral biodynamics, join Tara Eden and Jade Wood for this retreat to find more clarity in what you feel, how you move and the connection between them.
Our intention is that you will leave feeling refreshed and renewed with helpful tools for easeful movement, improved awareness and the space for self-reflection.
This is a celebration of learning and loving how your body and it’s movements are uniquely yours.
Central to the retreat is the time we will take, both during the classes and in the in-between. This is true quality time to spend with yourself, read, swim, play, sun-bask as well as reflect and reconnect or just be.
Enjoy a rich investigation, fully supported by the teachers and the stunning natural environment, not to mention amazingly delicious, fresh and locally sourced catered food by The Cat House Restaurant!
Jade and Tara have years of combined experience in teaching yoga, bodywork, movement and mindfulness and are so excited to return to this truly outstanding venue, OM WATERS to share this experience with you.
How the retreat looks:
4 days, 3 nights, 3 fresh delicious meals on Sat and Sun, plus dinner Fri and brunch before leaving on Mon (let us know your dietary restrictions!)
Transportation is provided from Chaing Mai to the retreat and accommodation is on the open air floating house boats on the lake!
Friday Dec 15th we will meet in town and travel together & arrive at Om Waters in the afternoon, we will have one movement session followed by dinner and rest. Saturday & Sunday Dec 16th & 17th we will have an uplifting movement session, delicious breakfast and late afternoon yin exploration followed by lovely dinner. Mid-day is your retreat time to relax, swim, read, practice, receive bodywork, hang out with new friends, dialogue with the instructors or just be.
Monday Dec 18th we have a relaxed late morning brunch, last chance to swim or do a little self-guided practice, open up discussions with teachers or group etc. At 11am we take the boat ride back to mainland and then song taw back to Chiang Mai.
The movement sessions will usually be 2+ hours. Everyone is encouraged to go at their own pace, to participate in a way that best suits their needs at that time.
There will also be an opportunity for private Theraputic Massage, Body Assessment Sessions and Biodynamic Craniosacral Sessions with Tara or Jade during the retreat.
We look forward to sharing this special experience with you 🙂
