Becoming more embodied with Yoga and Meditation (with Vidyadasa & Satyamati)

This retreat is suitable for those new to meditation and Buddhism as practised within the Triratna Buddhist Community.

Please note: This retreat is open to people with a regular practice of yoga.

Deepening our exploration of Yoga and Meditation, including Pranayama, Yoga Nidra and Ritual we will create a rich and full open inquiry into this precious life. We will discover what it means to be truly human, all within the context of Buddhism.

Including inquiries and reflections from Buddhism, Yoga and Embodiment coaching traditions to create helpful qualities in your everyday life.

These will include small group work, and there will be some periods of silence too.

This retreat will be led by two very experienced teachers of Yoga and Meditation who will both lead Yoga and Meditation sessions.

Come along and enjoy practising together, in the magical realm of Rivendell.

Vidyadasa enjoys sharing a blend of yoga,coaching and embodiment practice inspired by exploring Buddhist practice of 30 years.

Satyamati has been teaching Yoga for nearly 50 years. She is a British Wheel of Yoga teacher and Sivananda teacher (India). As a qualified Sports Massage Therapist, safe alignment is crucial to her teaching, the body, moving, holding and opening, using the Bandhas to support the practice, working from the deep energetic core, with all the senses alive and vibrant. Through the practice we connect deeply to the Elements, to Aliveness and the Pranic body. Asana, Pranayama and Yoga Nidra connect within the flow of deep awareness and presence.

Covid-secure requirements

We still have some Covid related requirements that we believe helps to ensure that Rivendell is a safer environment (such as asking each retreatant to take a lateral flow test and letting the office know the result before travelling to Rivendell), and we will only accept bookings on the basis that those who attend our retreats abide by the requirements of our Covid risk assessment.

We want those that come to Rivendell to be confident that we are making their stay here as safe as possible.
