September 16th - 20th 2022

Vicki Shields 

Purprise Pranayama Retreats
Crimsworth Valley
Hebden Bridge

This five-day retreat takes place in the wild, windswept moors of the Yorkshire countryside, the ideal setting to discover the mysteries of the body and mind. 

Life can be messy and often our minds can feel pulled in so many directions, conflicted and triggered by things that throw us off balance.

 

This is a your opportunity to turn your attention inwards, connect with Nature and channel the Life force energy, to balance all systems of your body. 

This is no ordinary retreat if you're seeking an awakening or a transformation that will help you lead a more grounded, heart-centred life, true to your most authentic self - read on. if you are yoga teacher it is also your opportunity to enrich your teachings.

" I now make an annual Pilgrimage to Hebden to immerse myself in the awe inspiring surroundings of the retreat space that really allows me to drop deeply into the experience." Sarah King

 

Your body will be nourished with the most incredible, high vibe food from the Mindful Kitchen, and you get to stay at Acre Head Farm with the most stunning views of the sun rise and sun sets every day. The woods, and waterfalls are a few minutes walk, the ideal setting for meditations to enhance that vital energy within.

 

Prana is a mysterious energy. It's the immeasurable source of life itself and yoga is an invitation to channel this powerful yet subtle energy. When directed inwards, it can lead us to the true greatness of our being and take us beyond the limited conditioned self.

 

Every morning we'll begin with contemplation, followed by an embodied and somatic approach to Yoga postures to turn your attention inwards & the subtle movement of energy within Then, we’ll take a deep dive into the ancient wisdom of Prana, Nadis, Bandhas and the Chakras. We'll also explore the vibration of sound and Mantra alongside daily Pranayama, to expand your own knowledge and give you the tools to guide others to do the same. 

This Training is certified with a Trainer-Pro status with
Yoga Alliance Professionals

 

What to expect from the retreat: 

  • You'll cultivate a feeling of peaceful spaciousness to help you make decisions from a heart-centred place. 

  • You'll improve your ability to discern your own emotions from others, empowering you to stay true to your own needs and boundaries. 

 

  • You'll learn how to still the mind and create a shift in the autonomic nervous system.

 

  • You'll learn to recognise and potentially work through your physical and emotional holding patterns formed over many years.

 

  • You'll balance the energetic body, by opening your sense fields to become more aware of channels that flow through the body. 

 

  • You'll develop the art of listening to the breath, and over time, prepare to awaken subtle energy at the core of the body called Kundalini. 

 

  • You'll strengthen your understanding of our interconnected world and allow this to shine forth.

  • You'll elevate your own sense of compassion by gaining a conscious understanding of the sacred, infinite body of pure awareness.

 

Who will be teaching you?

It's so rare for Western Yogis to be connected to a living tradition because many of the great Yogic Masters have passed. However, Vicki Shields is taught directly by Yogic Master Sri OP Tiwari who's one of the few remaining Pranayama & Hatha Yoga masters of India.

Vicki is such an authentic teacher that walks her talk and shows up to teach with passion and excitement.  

 

I now make an annual Pilgrimage to Hebden to immerse myself in the awe inspiring surroundings of the retreat space that really allows me to drop deeply into the experience.

 

I have been motivated and inspired by Vicki's teaching & feel the benefits on so many levels of connecting with a daily Yoga & Pranayama Practice, having all my needs met on retreat meant I can really embody & comprehend this practice.

 

The food was the best food I have ever eaten!! Being with a group of wonderful people curious and devoted to exploring this aspect of Yoga has been the highlight of the last few years.
