Meditation,Yoga and Alexander Technique – 2.5 Day Urban Retreat

Friday September 27th to Sunday September 29th, 2024


Join us for a beautiful 2.5-day retreat this September, where we will combine the Alexander Technique with meditation and yoga. The Alexander Technique promotes ease and efficiency in all our movements and use of self. So, why not apply it to meditation and yoga as well? Imagine meditating while sitting in a posture that causes less back pain or practicing yoga poses while stressing your neck less. Discover how to move with more freedom and ease in this unique, immersive experience.
