Yoga, wellbeing and Digital Detox retreat in Norfolk, 16th – 18th February
What is a digital detox retreat we hear you ask? It is a wellbeing yoga retreat, but also with the opportunity to release yourself from technology and have a break from it. With the overload of technology that has become a part of our everyday lives, it is difficult to escape from it.
This is a relaxing weekend of wellness, relaxation, time out, space and the opportunity to unplug emotionally from technology. The retreat follows the same structure as our wellness retreats with one difference, you don’t have your phones, we take care of them for you. If you have a family you can call them if you need to, but it is to allow you the space that is necessary to really relax, instead of constantly checking the phone. This is your weekend to give yourself the break you need from the technology that has become a part of our day to day that is now hard to escape from. With the combination of yoga, healthy food, total peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings and re-connecting to nature you will also find yourself again and give your own system the re-boot it needs.
This retreat is like all of our wellness and yoga weekends, they are the opportunity for you to relax and switch off. The only difference is we ask for your phones so that you can really relinquish yourself from its control! If you have a kindle, it’s time to go back to paper books. We have your next of kins number when you book so they can contact our retreat team if there is an issue at home they need to speak to you about. If you have family commitments, children or ill parents then of course you can speak to them! Hopefully, you have chosen this retreat because you want to switch off and your family has given you permission to do just that.
On Saturday afternoon, we offer an informal workshop that will cover one’s relationship with technology and how we can minimise its usage in our day to day lives. Enjoy walking in nature, becoming mindful of your surroundings, the people you are spending the time with, the sounds, the colours. Indulge in a slower pace of life and then reap the benefits.
Giving yourself this space is a gift, so really take time to savor it. These days people seem so attached to their phones to the point where it seems they are ruled by them. This retreat gives you the opportunity to become mindful of your relationship with your phone or computer, to become the observer of this relationship and to challenge it to see if there is another way to manage the time spent on technology, to enhance your health and wellbeing. This digital detox retreat then creates an even greater sense of space in your life, to really relax and shed layers of stress that being connected can create without you even being aware they are there. It’s also just about wellbeing, yoga, good food and time to chill out!.
