      Winter Heartwarming Yoga Cacao Nidra

      With Tania Rose Fox
      Yoga Torquay 2pm - 5pm

      A delicious yoga journey…

      As we approach the depths of winter, give yourself a boost with this cosy, heartwarming afternoon yoga workshop! Yoga & cacao make a beautiful, heart-opening combination, and this session brings together all the nourishing power and sweetness of both, culminating in a special Yoga Nidra journey.

      The first part of the workshop will lead you through a range of gently energising, nurturing, heartwarming and restorative heart-oriented yoga practices (including asana, pranayama & guided meditation) before we meet the power of cacao: superfood for the body, medicine for the heart.

      After the physical yoga practices, we'll break for a shot of ceremonial-grade cacao (raw chocolate), mixed with warming spices in the traditional way, before you lie down for an hour of deep relaxation in Yoga Nidra and a guided journey, through the beautiful cacao forest and deep into the cave of the heart. Afterwards, as you return to your earthly body, share some delicious homemade organic raw chocolate. (And yes, Tania will share the recipe with all who come along!) 

      This is a yoga workshop, not a cacao ceremony, but it might serve as a gateway to the full cacao experience for some of you...(See below and also click here for details of upcoming Cacao Ceremonies is both Exeter and Torquay if you are interested.)

      Cacao is noted for its uplifting, heart-opening properties, so this workshop will include plenty to unblock and activate anahata chakra - the heart centre, the seat of love, warmth & compassion!


      £25 earlybird until 18th Nov / £30 full price
      All levels of experience welcome
