What an awesome week it's been for this Yoga Owl and my soul is doing so much happy dancing!
Last weekend I spent a couple of days at a Kirtan and Yoga Retreat in Tyalgum Ridge Retreat, Mount Warning, NSW organised by the Australian School of Meditation and Yoga. It was a lovely weekend filled with kirtan meditation, philosophy talks, guided meditations, yummy food, beautiful souls and yoga asana classes with beautiful Mount Warning as a back drop! Pretty awesome way to spend a weekend!
Then on Wednesday, Steve and I drove up to Agnes Water and 1770 for a lovely mid-week break, it took six hours to drive up there, but sharing the driving and having some good chats on the way, we soon got there. We had a great day exploring on Thursday, checking out a couple of beaches, Deepwater National Park and the beautiful Paperbark Forest Boardwalk - it really is such a pretty area. Steve was able to get a couple of drone flights in and also took some fabulous yoga photos for me, which I'll upload to the website soon.
On Friday we listened to what our bodies needed and had a lovely relaxing day around the hotel and pool. It's always good to have a mix of exploring and relaxing I find, I've never been a big fan of coming home from a holiday more tired than I started out! Three nights away seems to be the magic number too, it's long enough that you can fully relax and recharge, but also short enough that we can manage to have quite a few awesome relaxing breaks throughout the year.
Back home yesterday and we got a lovely welcome off our little furbaby Sissi, she's 14 years young and has us both wrapped around her little cat claws, lol. Huge thanks to our lovely neighbour Sue for looking after Sissi xox
This morning, the nourishment of my mind, body and soul continued, with a very soothing three hour Body Bliss Mini Retreat, led by the wonderful Laurina Kersten. I have never known three hours to go by so quickly! I left the workshop feeling so relaxed and chilled out with no aches and pains! I would thoroughly recommend checking out these lovely Body Bliss Mini Retreats if you ever get the chance to, you won't regret it!
Life is all about spending time with people who make your heart sing, as well as finding out what makes your soul happy and doing more of that... I hope that you're able to get your soul happy dancing this week!
