A weekend of Flow – Balancing your yin and your yang Yoga and Meditation weekend with Jo Monaghan

Retreat Overview 

The focus of the weekend is balance: exploring wellbeing practices that allow you to disconnect from your busy life and feel grounded, nurtured and centred.

It’s a weekend for you to explore your yin and your yang, your strength and your softness through meditation and yoga. We all need both yin and yang in our lives and our practice to find balance and achieve harmony.

Each day you will have the option to take part in a guided meditation, Vinyasa Flow yoga practice and an evening yoga session.

An alignment workshop will help you understand where strength and softness can be used to get the most out of your yoga practice.

Everything is optional and all you need to do is decide the flow of the days that will help you relax, recharge and reconnect.

You can also book a massage directly with Mana Retreat Centre with one of their therapists (additional charges apply). They get booked up fast so please contact them early!

I look forward to welcoming you.

The Teaching Team

Finding FlowJo Monaghan Having spent decades in the corporate world, I understand how stress impacts us and the benefits of yoga, meditation, and mindfulness to create a balanced life. I believe that Yoga is all about connection, to oneself, and to others. Yoga, for me, has always uplifted me and enabled me to thrive and become more in flow with life, able to meet its challenges with greater ease. I am a 500Hr RYT certified yoga teacher, having trained with Blissologist founder Eoin Finn in Bali and Canada from 2017-2019. The style I teach is Vinyasa Flow, which connects breath with movement to calm the nervous system, create body awareness, and improve energy flow. Founded by yogi, surfer and Blissologist Eoin Finn in 1999, Blissology is a yoga system that explores strategies for bringing more joy, awe, love, and bliss into our lives by connecting to ourselves, our community and Nature.
