Breath, Sound & Soma - A Weekend of Reconnection & Self-Care


Join Mei Lai Swan for a 3-day immersion into the restorative and transformative power of your own breath, sound and soma.

Together we will explore restorative somatic yoga and movement practices, breath and voice work, yoga nidra, contemplation, and simple rituals for self-care and reconnection.

This is an opportunity to nurture and honour your own natural rhythms. To find time for exploration and expression. And to reconnect to your own sense of inner belonging, well-being and self-care.

Who is this weekend for?

Suitable for all levels of experience and ability, this weekend immersion is for anyone wishing to slow down, reconnect and nourish their own sense of well-being through embodied and mindful practices. Offered with an invitational approach, participants are encouraged to engage in the practices in a way that feels as safe and nourishing as possible for each individual and the collective.

Yoga teachers are able to receive CEU with Yoga Alliance (US).

About Mei Lai Swan
Dedicated to the path of yoga, meditation and community for the past 20 years, Mei Lai Swan’s approach to yoga is inclusive, invitational and inquiry-based.

Her great interest is in making the richness and depth of the yoga teachings and practices accessible, relevant and empowering for each individual. There is no dogma, no ‘perfect pose’ to achieve, nothing to strive for. Instead, there is an invitation to explore and celebrate the mystery of life, in the unique form of your own body-mind and expression, in a way that feels right for you.
