Allanton Peace Sanctuary in Dumfriesshire, the European Centre for the World Peace Prayer Society, is set in 18 acres of beautiful gardens and grounds. A perfect escape from pre-Christmas hustle to recharge and refresh physically, mentally and spiritually.
The focus of this retreat will be on cultivating Happiness as a state of being, both on and off the yoga mat. Jenny's expert guidance will lead you to peel away the outer protective shell of ego which keeps us bound to a recurrent unhappiness. We learn how to refocus our life goal into the stillness of the soul through asana, pranayama, yogic meditation and chanting.
'Happiness is our inherent soul quality: we have become so attached to physical gratification, we have forgotten our true soul right is happiness.' Jenny Light
