Yoga retreats are a wonderful way to kick start your health journey, deepen your practice, or take some much-needed time out for yourself.
A weekend away in a beautiful location, for you to simply renew your energy and return to your world feeling refreshed, more grounded and ready to go again.
Hi, it's great to meet you! I'm Cheryl Wimperis. The founder of Life On Pointe, and a former professional ballerina now working as a lifestyle and yoga coach in Oadby, Leicester and online. I will be your yoga instructor and meditation guide on this yoga meditation retreat UK.
The modern lifestyle is filled with distractions, long working hours, social pressures and expectations, social media, and electronic gadgets. These distractions pull us away from our centre and our connection to who we are. Many of us get caught up in being a "human doing" rather than being a "human being" and experiencing life through presence and awareness.
We feel uneasy when we are misaligned with our true nature. We become tired, overwhelmed, anxious, unmotivated and even depressed. Finally, these are all signs that we need to find stillness, calm the mind, reconnect with ourselves, and remember who we are.
In times of darkness and confusion, yoga and taking some time out for ourselves help us move into a space of relaxation, self-knowledge, renewal and presence. This helps us feel like ourselves again, more centred, re-energised, self-aware, and happy.
When we are relaxed and fully present, we feel light, inflow, and connected to ourselves. The world is easier to navigate. We felt healthier, happier, and more in control of ourselves.
Join us on this journey!
Our yoga retreats welcome all abilities.
Retreats are a convenient way to kick start your health journey or deepen your knowledge and practice, with leading practitioners available to answer your questions throughout your stay.
Retreats allow us to take this much-needed time out from our busy lifestyles and unplug.
Giving ourselves time and space to tune out the everyday noise so that we can tune into ourselves is the most replenishing gift we can give ourselves.
We learn a lot about ourselves during this quiet observance, reflection, and practice. We learn how to steady the mind and find our true power seated in our peace.
There is no pressure to do anything during these retreats, and the flow reduces any stress or worry. It's about what you and your body need now.
We create a safe and supportive space for you to relax and let go.
You will enjoy delicious plant-based foods and experience the uplifting power of whole foods and tasty recipes.
Suppose you are looking for more support around your diet and creating healthier habits. In that case, you talk directly with a nutritionist and taste different flavours and recipes.
Each day includes a morning yoga class, including breath work and meditation, and an evening restorative yoga practice ending with Yoga Nidra (or deep relaxation) to fully relax the nervous system and allow the mind and body to consume the experiences of your day; improving your emotional, physical, and mental wellbeing.
So again, whether you are a beginner to yoga or seasoned practitioner, these guided practices help you find yourself within, learn more about your practice, and experience feeling good from the inside out.
We invite you to participate in a mindful activity in the middle of each day, depending on where you are and how long you will be there.
Mindful activities are light and fun, and allow us to experience new things and breathe fresh energy into our wellbeing, and enjoy and connect with our surroundings and nature.
Activities include beach or hill walks, swimming, surfing, dance therapy, massage, heart circles, or an outdoor cacao ceremony.
The retreat is an intimate experience that attracts people who love healing, restoring energy, and having a rejuvenation experience in a refreshing environment.
It is always lovely to see new friendships blossom because of retreats and yoga holidays.
If you enjoy short breaks away, and if you feel the need to unwind and fill up your cup, we invite you to join us on a retreat. Relax, let's go, let us guide you along the way, and enjoy a restorative weekend away, so you can return to work refreshed and ready to conquer.
Join us at our next retreat!
