Silent Retreat

A Tranquil Weekend of Yin / Nidra Restorative Yoga - Breathwork | Hypnotherapy | Elemental Cleansing

Take full advantage of Canada's beautiful warmer seasons, INYE is excited to announce our Silent Retreat on July 29th-31st!

 

Being in silence is not about shutting the world out, but opening yourself to the inner world. When the surroundings are busy and lively, your very essence can remain in stillness, which is the highest state of vibration.

 

Shanine and Eddee will guide you through various potent practices of self reflection and inward seeking, with meditation, elemental cleansing (bhuta shuddhi), and asking questions for self inquiries. Please bring a journal & pen to record your contemplations; avoid digital books/tablets as they often contain apps which could distract.

 

The duration of this retreat is entirely silent, besides the sharing circle at the beginning & end of our time together. It is a time to be with yourself and nature, there is no need to converse or to impress, but to observe your transaction with the elements.

This is THE time to learn deeply about yourself.

Harmony Dawn Retreat Centre

Harmony Dawn was built in 2003 and was custom designed as a green retreat centre, using most of the sustainable energy technologies available. It was voted one of the greenest buildings in Canada. It also incorporates the owners' Feng-shui and Yin-Yang knowledge, 

 

The Yoga Studio: The studio is bermed into the top of the hill, while the front offers sunny, expansive views of rolling hills through their 10-foot, floor-to-ceiling, high-tech windows. You feel as if you are sitting out in a high, open meadow and foxes, turkeys, and deer occasionally walk by. Berming is the technique of totally or partially covering a building in earth to take advantage of the temperature of the earth, 55 F or 13 C., through all seasons. Their studio also has radiant-heated floors, which can adjust to the required room temperature. There is a living “green roof” over the studio.

 

Accommodations: Their central pod houses the living room, bedrooms and washrooms and is also partially bermed. All floors boast large windows; all washrooms have heated floors. There is a wood-burning, glass-windowed masonry fireplace in the living room, which heats all three floors. Please let us know your preference to stay with another practitioner(s), we will do our best to honour the request.

First Floor - Yoga Space / Common Area / Dining Room (outdoor dining also available) / Washroom

Second Floor - 3 Shared Rooms with Bunk Beds (2-4 people per room) / Bathroom

Third Floor - Open Concept Loft (4-6 people, divided with screens & plants)

Sleep Cabin - Single Bed on main floor + Small Loft with single Bed

Group size: ~ 14 participants.

 

Meals: Nicola has had a life-long passion for food and cooking going back to her childhood. She has worked in the food industry, had her own catering company, and found the perfect outlet for her food passion and knowledge as Chef of Harmony Dawn. Her cuisine encompasses international cooking from across the planet and speciality diets, including lacto-vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, macrobiotic and more. She is a passionate advocate for fresh, local and organic food whenever possible. At HD, they grow a selected variety of organic herbs and vegetables and have access to a wider variety within the local organic farming community.

During the retreat, we will be serving delicious fresh vegan meals.

Location

Harmony Dawn Retreat Center is located 2 hours & 30 minutes north east of Hamilton. It is situated on the shores of beautiful Rice Lake in Northumberland County and is easily accessible from the 407 or Hwy 401 east.

EDDEE HUANG

Eddee is the studio director of Inye Yoga. His invitation to all students is to experience and deepen their connections to the physical, energetic, mental, and the subtle bodies through Yoga. Whether it is through Hatha asana, pranayama, meditation, hypnotherapy or reiki, as long as one is willing to step across the open door of awareness, he would provide guidance to aid their journey.

Eddee's main Hatha Yoga principle for deep integrated work is patience. He strives to bring flexibility and mobility back to the spine, to grow tall and move with freedom, and to re-introduce natural alignment back to the body. His practices are conducted gracefully and methodically, and he invites the students to re-discover their physical and mental boundaries while exploring their unique path. Move and discover, that's how we grow and evolve.

 

Eddee is a certified E-RYT200 teacher, certified Reiki Master, and a clinical hypnotherapist. He aims to provide judgement free practices & a sacred space for every practitioners.

SHANINE DENNILL

After being touched by the death of a family member at a young age, Shanine questioned the meaning of life and death. This led her to study healing and spirituality with masterful teachers. Through her studies and life experiences, she intuitively guides her students to access an inner wisdom that propels them to live to their greatest potential.

 

Shanine was introduced to yoga while studying massage therapy in 1999 (in South Africa). It wasn't until she came to Canada in 2001 that she fell deeply in love with it. She completed her first 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2008. She then completed another 200-hour yoga training (with an alignment focus), a Meditation teacher training program, and her 300-hour yoga teacher training. She owned a yoga studio for 10 years and is grateful to continue to share yoga with so many students, especially at Inye Yoga.

 

Shanine is an E-RYT 500 teacher with Yoga Alliance. She also teaches Yoga Nidra and Meditation and is completing her trainings in Reiki and Folk Herbalism. Her yoga practices are heavily influenced by Tantra Yoga (from the Sri Vidya lineage). This includes intelligent sequencing of poses to feel more embodied, focusing on the breath and meditation to stabilize the mind and manage energy to realize the true Self.
