Halcyon Hot Springs Resort
The New Year is a time for reflection, resolutions, and turning over a new leaf. At Namaste Yoga & Wellness Centre we want to encourage meditation in all its forms, which is why we are delighted to be offering our Meditation Retreat again at Halcyon Hot Springs Resort
This retreat is the perfect blend of meditation, time for self, incredible food, and ancient healing waters. For meditation newbies, this retreat is a great way to learn new techniques and develop a foundation of practice to take home. While seasoned practitioners can go deeper and strengthen their practice reaching higher levels of samadhi and awakening, retreat also brings participants closer to their sangha, their community, giving a group feels to an otherwise solitary activity.
Explore the brilliant things that happen in a calm mind. Learn the ancient yogic wisdom of meditation to find greater inner peace, joy, and happiness in your life.

Yoga & the 7 Chakra’s Retreat
November 1-3, 2019
The seven chakras explained
Practicing yoga enhance not only your physical body and wellness but also purifies your energetic body. It does so by unblocking energy pathways so that life-force can flow freely affecting our health and wellbeing.
The chakra system is a seven levelled philosophical model of the universe. It is a center that receives, assimilates and expresses life force energy. The word chakra translates as “wheel or disk” and refers to a spinning sphere. There are seven main chakras stacked in a column of energy that spans from the base of the spine to the top of the heard. This chakra system is a bridge between polarities, heaven/earth, inner/outer, above/ below, matter/consciousness. Chakra one is our center of stability and basic needs, located near the base of the spine, element-earth, colour-red. Chakra two is our center of creativity and sexuality, located in the pelvic area, element-water, colour-orange. Chakra three is our center of power, located in the navel area, element-fire, colour-yellow. Chakra four it the center of love it is situated in the heart area, element-air, colour-green. Chakra five is our center of expression, located in the throat area, element-ether, colour-blue. The last two chakras connect us beyond this earthly realm, chakra six is our center of intuition, located at the eyebrow center point (third eye), light-element, colour-indigo. Chakra seven is the center of our spiritual connection it is situated at the crown of the head, cosmic energy-element, colour-violet/white. For optimum health and to harness the power of the chakras this retreat will explore the use of yoga postures, chakra meditations, essential oils, crystals, affirmations, and colour vibration. Ideal for beginners to well-seasoned practitioners.
