IGNITE YOUR INTENTIONS
IGNITE YOUR INTENTIONS
A one day retreat with Emily Rose Yoga and Ginger Ki Yoga
SATURDAY 4 APRIL 2020 | 8am – 4.30pm
[RESCHEDULED FROM 11 JAN DUE TO BUSHFIRES]
215 Mt Buffalo Retreat, Mt Buffalo Road, Porepunkah
Dare to dream as you join teachers Kylie Bertuch Haynes from Ginger Ki Yoga & Emily Rose from Emily Rose Yoga for an inspirational one day retreat at the stunning 215 Mt Buffalo Retreat’s Yoga studio, surrounded by bushland and breath-taking views.
Take time out to slow down, build awareness, develop your deepest desires and create a positive vision for your 2020 year!
We will explore vinyasa, yin & restorative yoga sequences, meditation practices, silent reflection, essential oils, crystals, journalling and visioning exercises to empower you to manifest positive energy in your life.
A healthy lunch and snacks will be provided with time to walk in the surrounding bush or swim in the onsite pool.
This retreat is specially designed for people of all experience & ability levels.
It is worth attending the retreat for the connections you make with others alone. Not to mention the beautiful day the ladies put together with all things self love. What a beautiful part of the world to do it in too.
The highlight to me was how the pieces pulled together with the oils, intentions, crystals, meditation etc. It was a beautifully put together day, very enriching. Thank you so much for the presents to take away to ensure I continue my practice.
I love that both Emily and Kylie walk their talk on every topic that was covered, each sharing their wisdom. Their generosity and abundance on information from the yoga, journaling, meditation, oils, crystals & recipes. Book me in for next year, this should be at the top of everyones to do list.
My time at the Ignite Your Intentions Retreat was a chance to press pause and have the time and clarity of thought required to look at what is important in life. The yoga classes, the meditations and the guidance shown by Kylie and Emily were wonderful and they were so open with sharing their own practice and extensive knowledge on mindfulness, essential oils, journalling and crystals. Many thanks for providing such a great day with so many beautiful people.
Each moment in life is an opportunity to reflect and to act with intention.
But, we spend most of our time rushing around, caught up in whatever drama is current playing out, going through the motions of life. We struggle to find the space to gather ourselves, to connect to what feels true for us and to create some changes to step out of these habits.
A new year has always symbolically provided a time to create this space to reflect on the past year and to make positive changes for the year ahead.
However, even then we don’t always have the best tools at hand to set our New Year Resolutions. They can be superficial, hard to stick to and so broken by soon after, leading to a greater feeling of failure!
In yoga we have a specific process for setting an intention. In Sanskrit this is called a Sankalpa and you may have heard this term at the start of a yoga class.
A definition of sankalpa is a vow to follow your most heartfelt desires, to be connected to the highest truth and follow your dharma (your life’s purpose). Yoga teaches us that we already posses all we need within us to fulfill our dharma, it is just a case of focussing and channeling our energy in the right direction. With this in mind the sankalpa is very much a resolve to connect to our truth within.
Through yoga practice, meditation techniques and reflective tools, such as journalling, we are able to connect with our values more deeply and create positive intentions and achievable goals that inspire us and give us energy, rather than leaving us feeling more depleted.
Setting intentions the yogic way doesn’t involve saying we will DO more or less of anything. It doesn’t assume that we are missing something in our lives, that if we only tried harder we would be whole!
Setting an intention is about cultivating deep awareness and uncovering what lights you up from the inside, what are your heart’s true values? We affirm that we already have everything we need right now to embody that value and commit to living from that place in our lives.
An intention is a way of setting the course of your ship for this next year (or decade) to come. Our goals & actions then flow on from this deep, heartfelt intention.
This one day retreat has been created by Kylie & I to give you space to build awareness, to get in touch with your wisdom body and your heart, and to offer tools and tips to set your course for the year to come.
This full day of yoga and meditation will not only give you the time for yourself to find some space and balance away from the distractions of every day life. It will include tried and tested tools to create change. doTERRA Essential Oils, a beautiful Practice You journal and HartRoks crystals are included as gifts in this deeply nourishing day.

ABOUT THE TEACHERS
Emily has been a student of many styles of yoga over the past 20 years but particularly loves to teach a strong yet slow flowing vinyasa style, that blends alignment based principles to build strength with a softer mindful, often philosophical side. Emily has over 500 hours of teacher training (including Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, Prenatal and Kids yoga), has been teaching for 5 years, with over 1000 hours of teaching experience, and is registered Level 2 teacher with Yoga Australia.
Emily inspires people to make positive change in the world by helping them to create deeper connections with their own body-mind, each other and the earth. She invites students to utilise the rich variety of techniques that have been passed down by ancient traditions and combine this with modern scientific knowledge about the anatomy of the body and mind. Emily focuses above all on the connection between body, breath and mind and assisting students to ground themselves in their bodies, in the present moment, in order to uncover deeper layers of their being. She teaches both Yang and Yin styles of yoga and is currently undertaking further study in Mindfulness Meditation teaching. She is passionate about bringing the life-changing practices of Buddhist meditation and philosophy, and Earth mindfulness, into as many lives as possible.
Emily loves whole foods, nature, adventures in the mountains, taking action on injustice, teaching and above all connecting people in love and kindness through yoga. You can read more about Emily here.
Kylie has been practicing yoga for 14 years and teaching for 7 years. The style she is most passionate about is vinyasa yoga and enjoys adding some suggestive personal enquiry, intention setting, creative sequencing and perspective changing concepts to her classes. Kylie has trained both overseas and locally and is fascinated and inspired by the broader concepts of what the life changing practice of yoga has to offer, both on and off the mat.
Official trainings have included 500+ Hours of Hatha, Ashtanga and Forrest Yoga influenced Power Vinyasa Yoga with Julia McCabe Yoga, Pre-Natal & Restorative Yoga with Bliss Baby Yoga, and most recently 50 Hour advanced Training with Irene Ais on energy anatomy and the 5 koshas.
Kylie is a Yoga Alliance and Yoga Australia Level 2 (500 Hour RYT) Registered Teacher with over 1000 hours of teaching experience and is passionate about spreading the love of yoga in her local and global communities. You can read more about Kylie here.
