A CONSCIOUS MOVEMENT RETREAT WITH CHARMAINE HORSBURGH

YOGA AND BOWSPRING TEACHER



Opportunity to spend a serene weekend in the beautiful surroundings of Temenos

Retreat Centre combined with an introduction to one of the most innovative and

rewarding, heart-opening movement practices of the 21st century.


FEEL AT HOME IN YOUR BODY


One of the first things I noticed when I began with the Bowspring alignment back

in 2013 was the undeniable sense of increased confidence it gave me, and being a

yoga teacher, it made perfect sense to want to share this sense of inner freedom and

expansion with others. Now the link between posture and self-confidence is well

known, especially to practitioners of the Bowspring since we consciously work to

counteract those defaults which keep the body in a closed state.


‘There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less

then the one you are capable of living.’

- Nelson Mandela


Whether you are an experienced yogi or an absolute beginner, I relish the

opportunity to introduce you to this outstanding postural alignment system that has

revolutionized my own practice and many others around the world. Wherever you

may fit on the movement spectrum, I invite you to bring your Beginners Mind so

that we may grow together.


This confidence building practice takes into account that the body is not a linear

regimented affair; instead, it is curvy, dynamic, light and springy. This is the

Bowspring alignment.


It is yoga in the true sense – the word yoga comes from the Sanskrit root Yuj – to

yoke, commonly referred to as union; a united synthesis of body, mind and spirit.

This is yoga and this is the effect a Bowspring practice offers.


We begin our retreat at 6 pm on the Friday evening for a short introduction,

followed by dinner in Tebaldi's Restaurant at 6.30 pm.


On Saturday morning we begin with a centering meditation practice, followed by

breakfast in Tebaldi's Restaurant; after which we will begin to explore the basic

principles and movements of this postural alignment system.
