30th December 2016 – 2nd January 2017, New Year Soul Dive with Mischa Varmuza

Four days and three nights of bliss over New Year. An incredible way to finish one year and start a new.

Yoga: meditation: pranayama: ritual: NYE ceremony & banquet: detox-party: country walks: treatments

Join us for an immersive yoga experience as we dive deep into our hearts and practice over a three day retreat in the luxurious and beautiful setting of Oxfordshire’s Poundon House. Guided by our gifted teacher and experienced retreat leader Mischa, we will celebrate the past and present and craft heartfelt intentions as we look ahead to the New Year.

You will experience morning and afternoon yoga practices, nourish your souls and bellies with a delectable NYE banquet, let loose with a detox dance-l party, welcome in the New Year with glorious ceremony and life-affirming rituals, go deeper with meditation, pranayama, refresh with long country-walks and make connections with like-minded, lovely souls.

As well as a lot of time in the shala with Mischa, there will be open fires to bask before, long walks to be taken, hot baths to relax in, massages and treatments to release tension and a creative workshop time to spark our imaginations into life.

There is no better way to wake up to the New Year than full of life, love, energy, yoga and a refreshing walk in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside!

This carefully crafted retreat will nourish your soul and guide you lovingly into 2017 with an open mind and strong heart.

Your yogi – Mischa Varmuza

Mischa’s yoga journey began over a decade ago and slowly began to weave its way through her life; she is continually humbled and inspired by the potential of yoga to transform, expand and heal and is devoted to sharing the practice with others. She holds enormous gratitude to leading vinyasa flow teacher Claire Missingham with whom she completed her initial 200 hours and went on to assist for some time afterwards.

Most recently Mischa finished an additional 300 hour training with her teacher Sianna Sherman who is of enormous influence and inspiration to her. She has now stepped into apprenticeship with Sianna and assists on her workshops and trainings. Mischa has spent over a year in India studying, practicing and visiting sacred sites and it holds a special place in her heart.

Mischa teaches a heartfelt practice with creative sequencing, a deep focus on breath and alignment and a combination of strong steady flow and longer holds to both uplift and tap into the stillness. She draws her understanding from a number of styles and traditions, particularly inspired by the philosophy and practices of the Tantric lineage. Her classes are woven with philosophy, myth and stories and often include music, chanting, meditation and ritual. In a retreat environment the practices offered are incredibly diverse and always expand far beyond the students expectations as Mischa weaves in layers of influences from her personal practices and study to create a unique and beautiful experience.

Mischa’s teaching is passionate and knowledgeable, her intention is to both challenge and restore, holding a space for individuals to open, reflect and absorb. You will be taken on a joyful journey of self inquiry and unfolding. Mischa is committed to her own study and practice as the foundation of her teaching.
