Happy Yoga Retreat

A weekend of Play, Love and Laughter

David Naylor and Guru Dudu invite you on a unique journey of:

The 8 Limbs of Happy Yoga

1. Grooveyama – connecting with your natural flow and the groove of life

2. Dodo-Dumi – accessing creativity through our animal instincts

3. Fashananda – fashioning the world we really want from our passions

4. Pyjamahara – the art of Play in our everyday lives

5. Assananda – getting real and have fun letting go of stuff that is not serving us

6. Coochi-coochi – connecting deeper with ourselves and others

7. Dali-mo – celebrating our inner eccentricity

8. Yummi – saying ‘Yes’ to all of life

Your DNA will never be the same again!

For each limb we offer fun and engaging activities that invite you to experience your world from a new perspective. There will be group and paired exercies, Happy Yoga interludes, Creative Art play, a Silent Disco by the sea plus time for solo reflection, hanging out and relaxing by the sea.

The weekend will draw on a range of influences including:

    • Groupwork dialogue
    • Theatre Impro
    • Buddhism
    • Deep Ecology
    • Creative Arts
    • Somatic movement & Dance
    • Yoga

The reteat is a warm and friendly atmosphere peppered with deeper moments of “dropping-in” to what is really important. Plus lots of hearty laughter guaranteed! Please come along if you would like to:

    • learn to switch off the mind and relax into your playful self
    • reconnect with your Joy and Inspiration!
    • meet an awesome bunch of people

About Guru Dudu

Guru Dudu loves any form of unconventional group happiness including his very own Happy Yoga which blends the best of ‘Yoga’ from the East with ‘Disco’ from the West.

He also facilitates Cosmic Speed Dating adventures that take on a whirlwind journey from the Big Bang to the birds and the bees.
