Something quite remarkable changes on such a subtle level when we Stop and we Listen … that is, listen to our body and our heart, so our mind can take a backseat for a while!
Sunshine Yoga & Health’s ‘Time Out’ Day is all about stopping, listening, slowing down and connecting with oneself. The Time Out Day is an opportunity to switch off your busy mind for a day, turn off your mobile phone for a day, totally emerge yourself in to the moment and experience peace, quiet and harmony ... for just one day! The effects of 'just one day' are amazing and extremely beneficial to one's entire being.
Come and join us for a day of varied yoga practices: yoga routines, deep relaxation, meditation, guided imagery, qi gong, plus flowing release movements specially designed for softening tightness and pain. Sunshine Yoga's unique style increases flexibility and strength through slow and focussed postures and deep diaphragmatic breathing.

Thank you for an absolutely blissful Time Out Day yesterday. I haven't felt so relaxed, in tune with my body and inner self in years. The nourishing lunch was simply amazing. Namaste. JL
I thoroughly enjoyed my first Time Out Day. I certainly got a lot out of it. After a hectic few months it was just what I needed. Thank you for being such a wonderful teacher and a fabulous person! DS
What a wonderful gift you gave us on Sunday Lyn. It was all great. Thank you. LT
Thank you so much for organising the "Time Out" Day on Sunday. I came away feeling so revived and relaxed. I always enjoy the day. JT
I am very grateful to you for organising such a well-run and varied program. The food was most delicious too. I look forward to the next one. AG
Thank you so much for a wonderful day. I absolutely enjoyed every minute. There were some very 'special bits' that touched and resonated deeply for me. The food was great, spending time with you was fantastic and at the end of the day and even still now, I actually feel taller!!! HH
Thank you for such a wonderful day. I went home feeling happy and renewed. Lunch was lovely and I have already tried out your bread recipe - delicious. Will see you at the next one. PN
Thank you for a lovely day. It is good to take time out to stretch. My friend Cathy who also attended told me she literally 'floated out of the Time Out Day'. DH
