Tuesday’s Grateful List

Today I am grateful that I had a three day yoga retreat over the weekend. 
My friend Kylie and I signed up to the three day weekend with My Yoga Retreat at Gymea Eco Retreat and Spa

“Why Retreat?”

By “retreating” from everyday life, from your usual habits and patterns and from other people’s expectations of you & delving deep into your yoga & meditation practice you will truly spend time for yourself and in doing so, get to know yourself better and replenish your tank, so that you can be there for those around you… more present, more compassionate and more content.

Today I am grateful for the yoga. We did yoga all weekend. The morning started with sun salutations facing Mt Warning ( Wollumbin). It was a very special way to start the day. 

Today I am grateful for the amazing vegetarian food we ate all weekend. Even the deserts were vegetarian .

Today I am grateful for the meditation we did.

Today I am grateful that I turned off my phone and did not take my iPad or computer for the weekend so I had a digital detox as well.

Today I am grateful for the hours of silence after dinner up until after breakfast each day.

Today I am grateful for the connection to nature that we made. 

Today I am grateful for the interesting people that shared the weekend. They were all there to enjoy the benefits of a beautiful place and do yoga. 

Today I am grateful for the two ladies who ran the retreat – Kara and Merryl.

Today I am grateful for the photographer who took the beautiful photographs over the weekend. His name is Bevan Rijkaart from Lightcapturer Photo Services. He is based at Burleigh and his photographs are beautiful. 

Today I am grateful that I was able to go away on this retreat and I knew David was home looking after our family beautifully. 

Until next time

    So pleased your retreat went well. Once our renovations are complete I will be doing the same at the Buddhist Centre in Pocklington.

    Unplugging sounds heavenly! We all need a little detox here and there.
