If you need a day away from city life, but don’t fancy a trek down to the county, then you must check out Honeywell Yoga Day Retreats. I recently joined Laura Currie, (Nutritionist) and Charlotte Lewis (Yoga instructor) at one of their day retreats in London that was a well-deserved break away from the norm to reset my body and mind.
Within stunning surroundings in an East London rooftop apartment, you are greeted with a sit-down breakfast of Chia Porridge and berries, tea and chats with the other attendees.
An energising yoga session with Charlotte follows that’s focused on a balanced mix of Kundalini and Vinyasa. As a young yogi myself, the class was engaging but not too advanced which helped me feel at ease with my lower back issues and limited Yoga practice. Charlotte is also brilliant at adding in small mantras about learning to love yourself, your surroundings, your situation, and learning to let go of negative feelings. This mantra flows through the rest of the day which isn’t too militant and very much about going with the flow of the group.
A number of conversations developed as Laura talked the group through the importance of good nutrition while we all got to know each other and our backgrounds. A light lunch of salad was then served before we enjoyed a lovely walk along the canal (weather permitting) by Broadway Market. You’ll have another opportunity at this point to chat in more depth with the other attendees and to take in the sights before heading back for the afternoon meditation session.
Finishing at 4pm with some tea and raw chocolate made by Laura herself, you’ll have the opportunity at future events to partake in an organic beauty demonstration.
Leaving with a goodie bag worth over £50 with lots of treats, superfoods, and nutritional supplements you will leave with a new perspective on life and feeling much more relaxed.
