Nurture Afternoon Retreat

31 July @ 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm


Nurture is an afternoon retreat where you escape the real world and create to rest, heal and connect. The transformative practices of Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra, the powerful combination of the 2 will leave you rested and inspired. Life moves at extraordinary speed, this is your opportunity to pause, and really listen to your body, heart and soul speaking. The focus on this workshop is on techniques for expanding our energy, prana using visualisation, meditation and pranayama breathwork. The afternoon tea is a light nourishing intermission allowing space for connecting with like minded others or more time for contemplation.

Restorative Yoga is a practice of rest, where we use props to support ease in the body. Designed for rest and recovery this practice is accessible to all. No previous experience required. Finishing with Yoga Nidra, a transformative guided meditation practice of approximately 40 min. Shared in the tradition of the Integrative Amrit Method of Yoga Nidra. With a focus on deep intuitive listening and healing. Limited to 12 people for intimacy and privacy. 

Here is what previous attendees shared of their experience:

Veronica is a certified ERYT-500Hr Yoga teacher and Registered Level 3 Yoga NZ teacher. Certified in the I Integrative Amrit Method of Yoga Nidra, where the focus is on profound energetic shifts. “This interest in the relationship between body and spirit started at Flinders University in 1997 with study in Psychology and Philosophy. First attuned to Reiki energy healing in 1999, subsequent studies in Ayurveda in 2000, and 3 Vipassana Retreats in my mid 20’s deepened this fascination with mysticism, energy, meditation, psychology and yogic philosophy. Over the years I have studied with many incredible teachers and my teaching is now the embodiment of my life’s passion and interest. I have a background outside of yoga as a trainer and educator in the Travel and Tourism Industry. For the last 4.5 years as owner of Grassroots Yoga & Health my mission is to bring people together, through regular practice and inspiring events, to grow and evolve across all the layers of their being. We lift each other up by sharing our journey.
