About the event

“Humans, in their ignorance, identify themselves with the material sheaths that encompass their true selves. Transcending these, they become one with true bliss.” - Upanishads, Taittiriya

There are so many elements of this modern life that can pull us away from the essence of who we are. Societal pressures tell us we need to keep moving, be productive, be sociable, be available for others… Yet how often do you stop and think about what you need to thrive?

We can be so focussed on what we feel we’re supposed to be, that we can become disconnected from our true selves - our inner essence.

In our day retreat we will guide you beyond the thinking mind to help you connect to the core of who you are. We’ll connect to the deepest layers of our being by tapping into the intelligence of our bodies, liberating our voices and unpacking subconscious processes through guided meditation, journaling & sound healing.

Through these beautifully facilitated practices you will be reminded of the beauty that is at your core and see a glimpse of your own unique essence. You’ll leave you feeling grounded, reconnected and empowered to express your authentic self in all areas of life.

Are you ready to connect to your inner essence? Join us for this day of mindfully curated practices to be guided back towards your truest expression.

The Venue

The Yoga Barn is a cosy cottage retreat located in the heart of Pollock Park in the Southside of Glasgow. We’ll gather around the wood burning stove during breaks and you’ll have the opportunity to get outside in nature during lunch if you feel called.

The Yoga Barn is easily accessible by public transport links and there is parking on site.
