Festive Yoga & Floristry Day Retreat
Time & Location
About the Event
The Christmas period can be a busy and often stressful time for a lot of us. Even during these manic periods, we must not underestimate the power of slowing down to appreciate the beauty and joy that surrounds us.
Take a break from the festive rush on this special day retreat. Yogi Claire and Ash Tree Floral designs have joined creative forces to bring you a relaxing and fun afternoon of yoga, mindfulness, floristry and festive treats in a stunning location.
Yoga and floristry may seem like a unusual combination, yet the cathartic effects of creativity and nature have been paralleled with the calming and mindful effects of yoga. Research consistently links indoor plants and flowers with mental well-being. Flowers emanate vital energy and their fragrance is known to encourage a more positive psychological state. Combine this with yoga, meditation and self-care (not to mention chocolate) and allow the pressures of Christmas to melt away.
