Sharpham House Weekend Retreat

17th to 19th November 2017 | Ashprington, Totnes, Devon.

A Weekend of Self-Enquiry, Self-Healing & simply Being

Join Jo and James to dive deep into a transformative combination of hatha yoga, neurogenic yoga and yoga nidra.

The weekend will help you unfold, release and move forward with ease and lightness, discovering your innate, most peaceful self.

We’ll be practicing:

Hatha Yoga

Soothing, mindful movement and breathing practices to help you calm your mind and connect with the wisdom held within your body.

Often we consider thinking and analysing to be a means to understand ourselves and find ‘solutions’ to our problems, forgetting that our body has its own memory and wisdom, if we take time to inquire and listen.

Neurogenic Yoga

We’ll re-awaken our inner healer, allowing body and mind to release and let go. This deeply restorative practice awakens our innate tremor release response through gentle mindful hatha yoga, restoring and rebalancing us as tensions ripple away.

Neurogenic yoga is accessible to everyone and we’ll be honouring your pace and ability in a nurturing and supportive space.

Yoga Nidra

We’ll ease you into guided yoga nidra practices where you will effortlessly be carried into a meditative state, surfing the stages of sleep and exploring awareness from a clear non-analytical perspective. In this deeply relaxed state your ‘judgements’ will be absent, your preconceptions gone and only the essence of your being will be present, offering insight and often a profound sense of everything being OK just as it is.

About The Teachers

Screen Shot 2017-04-21 at 09.35.46Jo Hamilton is a DSY Teacher and Advanced TRE Trauma Release Practitioner. Following her own healing journey she supports others to release emotional and physical trauma through activation of our natural instinctive tremor mechanism, releasing accumulated deep tension held within our body. Jo studied with Judith Lasater PhD, Dr Bo Forbes Psychologist and Yoga Therapist and Dr David Berceli, an expert in the field of trauma.

Passionate about the healing benefits of yoga nidra, Jo studied iRest yoga nidra with James and Total yoga nidra at yoga Campus. She enjoys blending her toolkit of practices to untie the body and mind from past painful experiences.

James Reeves has almost two decades of yoga experience and teaches regular classes in Oxford and London and on . He runs workshops and retreats worldwide and is the only iRest Yoga Nidra teacher trainer in the UK running training courses throughout the year. His interest in yoga nidra was sparked during his first ever yoga class when the closing relaxation left him feeling a profound sense of interconnectedness and wholeness – an unexpected discovery that led to many years of self enquiry and in depth study with master teachers around the world. Now James shares his knowledge globally, guiding his students into the depths of this life-changing practice, enabling them to discover for themselves that they are already healed, already whole, already healthy and already awakened. Bliss!
