We are excited to be hosting our first live online yoga retreat focusing on harnessing strength and resilience for winter
Why take a live online yoga retreat with MFML?
This year has been tumultuous for most of us as we have changed and shifted the way in which we work, care for our families, travel and socialise. An online yoga retreat with MFML offers a way to re-group and to digest the lessons of lockdown. It is a chance to gather and feel the warmth and power of community. Together, we can find ways to move forward this winter with strength and grace.
What to expect
- A weekend of live world-class yoga, meditation and breath work classes from Lucy McCarthy and Vidya Heisel
- Interactive discussions with Vidya, Lucy and MFML founder, Kat Farrants. Join in with our ‘fireside chats’ as we talk about building resilience, strength and adaptability
- Access to our closed community group with all our teachers and fellow Movers to offer you guidance and support
- Custom-made journal with inspiration, tips and advice and space for you to journal, also with recipes from Vidya
- A warm, human experience to counteract the restrictions of recent months, with time for you to connect with yourself
- A weekend of learning and support to equip you with the tools to move forward with resilience and strength
Friday 6 November – Sunday 8 November
Lucy McCarthy teaches mindful, alignment based Vinyasa flow and will be leading the yoga, meditation and pranayama classes, plus the intention setting opening ceremony and the closing ceremony.
Vidya Heisel, whom we know from our recent philosophy course, has led numerous retreats and teacher trainings at Suryalila Retreat Centre in Spain. She will lead a discussion on resilience.
Kat Farrants is the founder of MFML and she will be binding the retreat family together by hosting the discussions and supporting you all in sharing opinions and experiences.
The Daily Schedule
All sessions will be hosted live on Zoom and are suitable for all abilities; you are welcome to join no matter stage what of your yoga practice you are at. We will be offering suggestions for a range of additional classes which you can practice in your own time through the weekend.
