A weekend of Flow – Balancing your yin and your yang with Jo Monaghan 2021
September 24, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - September 26, 2021 @ 2:00 pm$200.00 – $580.00
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 relaxing 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 the retreat centre with one of their therapists (additional charges apply). You will be nourished by the wholesome vegetarian cuisine at Mana. For those with special needs they cater for gluten free, dairy free, wheat free and vegan on request. Please respect that the centre is drug, alcohol and meat free. I look forward to welcoming you.

What do others say about this retreat?
From last year’s retreat:
The yoga retreat was epic. Jo is a fantastic yoga instructor and guided me with ease to find my level of ability. No pressure, my pace and a fun retreat. I highly recommend you put Jo + The Flow Co on your bucket list !!
Also from last year’s retreat:
This retreat was just what I needed – it was the perfect length, in the perfect location. Jo’s teaching style is so inclusive and non-confrontational. She brings yoga back to what it should be, which is enjoyable and what is comfortable for you. I would definitely come again!
From Jo’s regular classes:
I am a regular attendee at Jo’s Vinyasa Flow class. I have learnt so much from Jo in these classes. She is warm and encouraging, explains the postures with calm and gives plenty of options for each one. There is no judgement or comparison in Jo’s classes. Recently, Jo has introduced outdoor yoga and it is lovely connecting with nature as part of the practice. Jo’s special Savasana is a highlight and you leave feeling your body relaxed and your mind at ease. I always look forward to the next class! – Sandy, Nelson
The Teaching Team
Jo 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.
