Harmony Dawn Fall Retreat

THEME 2017: YOGA AND THE CHAKRAS

Sept 29th to Oct 1st, 2017

4pm Friday until 2pm Sunday

Harmony Dawn Ecological Centre is a unique, sustainable energy haven that was conceived and constructed to inspire harmony, balance and transformation in both the external and internal environment. Located 25 minutes north of Cobourg on 50 rolling acres of meadows and forests, it is part of the picturesque Trent Waterway System. It offers a beautiful yoga studio that is south facing with floor to ceiling windows. One feels like they are “within” the natural meadow, sometimes seeing deer, foxes or turkeys stroll by.

This delightful weekend will consist of:
Yoga Nidra [Conscious sleeping] on Friday night
Morning and afternoon Yoga classes & Workshop dedicated to Fall Chinese Medicine, focusing on Lung and Large Intenstine, the organs of letting go
Satsanga & Kitan on Saturday night
Free time for nature walks, curling up with a good book, resting
Shaitsu massage, craniosacral, Ayurvedic Head Massage and RMT also offered (extra cost)

Nienke has been practicing Yoga for 2 decades and has been passionately teaching Yoga since 2000. She offers a compassionate yoga style that invites you to create the practice that is appropriate for your body and your energy level in each moment. Her classes provide a sanctuary to wander through the yogic journey uncovering the layers to the true self within, which is always full of peace, contentment and bliss!

Elizabeth McAvoy is in private practice as a Naturopath and promotes the philosophy that we are all self-healing, vitally energetic and vastly intelligent beings with a natural impulse to heal and be whole. Recognizing, trusting and loving the voice of body, mind and energy are foundational attitudes she weaves into the various aspects of her self-practice and work with others.
