“Thank you for an unforgettable, beautiful weekend. There was such an overwhelming sense of support, love and nurturing and humour all rolled into one, that we could trust entirely the experience of 'rounding' and where it would take us.

ABOUT THE RETREAT

What is 'rounding' and how does it work?

There are three main elements to ‘Rounding’:

  1. Asana (gentle yoga postures)
  2. Pranayama (breathing exercises)
  3. Meditation

During this meditation retreat we introduce you to the concept of 'rounding'. We have bought all the elements of it together in a practical programme created for you in the modern world.

Yoga, breathwork and meditation create a powerful combined force which - supported by classes in ancient knowledge - will take you to a place of deep relaxation where your body can repair and reboot from its very core.

Expect a truly life-changing experience.

Yoga

1. Asana
  • Yoga is a powerful ancient practice. It might have taken 5000 years to make its way to the West, but now it’s here it’s helping huge numbers of people enjoy its physical and spiritual benefits.
  • By combining a special sequence of poses with meditation, we can supercharge it and make its effects even more profound.
  • The sequence is the key, and it only need be done very gently. So whether you’re an ardent yogi, or you’ve never done a downward dog in your life, you can harness the incredible benefits this weekend has to offer.

Breathwork

2. Pranayama
  • Breath is life. It’s the first thing we are born with, and the last thing we do. When we learn to control it, we gain incredible power over our spectrum of emotions.
  • The ancient Indians were masters of breathwork. They developed a myriad of techniques to bring balance and progress to people’s lives. 
  • During the meditation retreat, we will teach you a breathing technique that will enable you to go deeper with your meditation and smooth it out so there is less mindless thought coming into your space.

3. Meditation
  • There's nothing like coming together as a group and honing the craft of meditation under the support and supervision of an experienced teacher.
  • Have particular issues you are trying to deal with? We can draw upon other breathing and meditative techniques to help you move through them more swiftly and easily.
Downtime in Nature

Downtime in nature

  • Did you know, we humans can identify far more shades of green than any other colour? That’s because we are wired to feel calmer, less stressed and more creative when surrounded by nature.
  • Over the course of the meditation retreat, we’ll build in plenty of time to experience our beautiful surroundings and feel their immediate restorative benefits.

Knowledge

  • We take great joy in sharing the ancient knowledge which underpins what we teach at Beeja.
  • We'll delve into the fascinating science behind meditation, and the philosophy around it, to encourage you to look at your life with a brand new perspective.
Downtime in Nature

Integration

  • Once learned, the rounding technique can be taken home and integrated into your daily practice. This will enable you to continue and progress your deep healing and growth. It’s an incredibly valuable tool to help you reset and recharge whenever you wish.

Over the course of the meditation retreat you'll be served the very best organic ingredients, carefully selected and prepared to support and enhance the healing process your mind and body are going through.

“Thank you SO much for this lovely retreat. I did not really have time to think about what to expect and I was just hoping to push my meditation skills. It just went far beyond. Not only the house was incredibly charming and welcoming, the dear fellow meditators a pure joy to be around, but you have equipped us with such a precious knowledge. I feel like I am leaving with gold in my backpack. I cannot thank you enough and will treasure this.”
