Retreat into Autumn


As we begin the descent into the darker half of the year Gavin and Kat offer you an immersive morning of practice to step away from the world and retreat within.

Bringing together our skills we will co-create a quiet morning of mindfulness practices - tea drinking, meditation, breath work, movement and deep listening.

We will welcome you with hibiscus tea (a tonic for the blood, shown to lower blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol and reduce inflammation whilst being a natural mood uplifter), traditionally used in ceremony to connect with the heart chakra and higher spiritual vibrations, and guided meditation helping the body to arrive and locate a sense of peace, calm and presence.

Mindful breathing practice strengthens this connection, invoking the parasympathetic nervous system, reducing stress, and deepening the journey within.

We will then move into a synthesised practice of yin yoga with therapeutic sound. As Kat weaves a gentle sonic tapestry of tuning forks, chimes, Himalayan and quartz crystal singing bowls, Gavin will guide a gentle yin yoga practice inviting you to surrender into the poses. Soothed by the resonating frequencies and completely supported with pillows allows a deep release to take place as the body stretches and eases to find stillness and peace.

As we conclude the gentle movement practice and settle into rest, our Sound journey evolves and expands with planetary tuned gongs, chimes, shruti and percussion escorting you to other realms.

Returning back to the body, there’s time to land as we gather to ground our energy with homemade, nourishing sweet treats and local spring mineral water.

Make time for yourself to Retreat into Autumn this October, emerging feeling restored with a sense of new found equilibrium.
