All welcome yoga retreat

with Jo Buick and Alice Hobday

Igniting your innate capacity to feel purposeful, connected, loved and whole through traditional and contemporary yogic practices.

Friday 14th – Sunday 30th June 2019
Maladhara Eco Retreat and Farm
Chiang Mai, Thailand

Alice and I are thrilled to be connecting in Chiang Mai to facilitate this 16 day immersion. Over the years, we have spoken to many of our students who want to dive a little deeper into their practice, but aren't necessarily interested in a teacher training course. 

Stoking the Flame is an immersive and intentional retreat experience held deep in the beautiful landscape of Chiang Mai, Thailand. We have designed this retreat as an opportunity to ‘stoke the flame’ of intention and purpose for those who are interested in taking time out to restore and revive. 

Who is this immersion for?
This offering is for everyone. Our retreats are inclusive of all bodies, all genders, all orientations and all levels of experience.

Alice and I have trained over many years to facilitate and hold space for diverse groups of practitioners with unique needs and intentions. We both believe wholeheartedly that yoga is a personal practice that starts from where we are at and are committed to facilitating experiences that are both inclusive and accessible.

For many people, retreat is a time of deep unfolding, self-discovery, break-through and metamorphosis. Stoking the Flame is an opportunity to purposefully and repeatedly reconnect with one’s breath, body and essential nature. To ‘stoke the flame’ is to ignite your innate capacity to feel purposeful, connected, loved and whole, just as you are.

About Thailand in June
Stoking the Flame is held in the monsoon season of June, a time when the ground is soft, the rain is warm, and the air is gentle. In Ayurveda, this is understood as Kaphic season - characterised by great fertility, new beginnings and a sense of connectedness. This is an incredibly potent time for introspection and realignment. For these reasons, our retreat schedule includes spaciousness for private processing, reading, meditating and resting.
