HEAL - cacao, shin yoga and healing sound journey

  • SOUL CENTRE 18 Huia Road Auckland, Auckland, 0604 New Zealand (map)

HEAL is a deep dive into Winter Solstice - a healing and rejuvenating retreat with the medicine of the heart - cacao + plant medicine, healing and restorative shin yoga with Wilhemeena Monroe and sound journey with award-winning oboeist Russel Walder.

Unwind, slow down, go inward.

Finishing with a deep and rejuvenating relaxation, and a warm cup of chai and delicious organic snacks from Willa's kitchen.



Drawing on the developmental style of Shin Somatics, Skinner Releasing principles, Body Mind Centering, Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy and somatic practice Shin Yoga focuses on opening and lengthening the body and quietening the mind. Based on the founding principle of Yoga – to create balance - we begin with balancing the nervous system and endocrine system, using asanas and pranayama inspired for healing and inner reflection.

Help manage stress, learn to wind down and create a space to just BE in your body. This is a transformative practice.

Suitable for those new to yoga, or for long-time yogis needing a more embodied gentle practice. Fabulous for those recovering from illness or injury, those in the later stages of the life cycle, pregnancy or post-natal mums or those in relax mode. Shin Yoga moves gently through the postures with a focus on healing, restoration and revitalisation.

Shin Yoga moves towards deep and profound relaxation in body, mind and spirit.
