In the deepest days of winter, this joyous retreat gifts space to rest, nourish and revitalise.

Join us for three easeful practices each day from the comfort of your home. This nourishing weekend will include active yoga, long restorative practices and iRest® Yoga Nidra.

Restorative Yoga is a safe, nurturing and truly joyful practice. Karla and Neal are highly skilled and passionate about this approach and welcome you to this retreat, a place where you may return home to a body and mind that is at ease and fully vibrant.

A welcome message from Karla and Neal

For this Be At Home Restorative Yoga Retreat, all that is required is:

  • To create an intention, space and time for yourself at home for your retreat and practice. Let this be a warm, clear, nurturing space.
  • Some tools for your practice:
    • A Yoga mat if you have one - this is optional, however - both Neal and Karla have spent years practicing without mats.
    • Some blankets, pillows, Yoga bolsters, a small towel and more (see the props photo below). Please know though that it is not necessary to have all of these items - a few blankets, pillows and towels will be more than enough to participate and to rest well.
