We hope that amidst of the storm that we are in, our at Home Retreat will give you a little bit of the nourishing and uplifting energy that we stand for as Equal.
Let's get started.
Your Equal Team.
Programme Day 1: Tap in to your inner strength.
Airplane Flow with Henry
Time to play! We will kick off with a powerful practice. Henry sets out to challenge your balance as we move through funky variations of down dog, akward airplane, strong transitions from fallen triangle to two limb plank and lots of energizing twists. If you have a block keep it by your mat, or as alternative use a book.
Class length: 60 minutes. Click here to start.
Meditate with New BFF
The power to tap in to your intuition and inner strength is too often overlooked. To be present for them means to feel peaceful and free. This meditation will give you the tools to let go of tension and external thoughts and dive deeper in your practice. Afterwards, we recommend to keep the calm vibes with you and let the first day of your retreat sink in with a warm cup of tea.
Meditation length: 20 minutes. Click here to start.
