Yoga & Meditation Long Weekend (with Satyamati)

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

Please note: These retreats are for those who already regularly practise yoga and are not suitable for complete beginners. They are also suitable for anyone who would like to explore an introductory retreat, or who has been attending their local Triratna centre and wants to take things deeper.

Deepening our exploration of Yoga and Meditation, including Pranayama, Yoga Nidra and Ritual, we will create a rich, open inquiry into this being human, all within the context of Buddhism.

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

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.

As an Ordained Buddhist Satyamati leads within the framework of the Buddha's teaching, with kindness and encouragement, working in stages, so that all can benefit from whatever part of the practice is available to them.

Covid-secure requirements

We are no longer asking each retreatant to take a lateral flow test before travelling to Rivendell, but we are asking that they bring a test with them in case they fall ill whilst here.

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