Yin Yoga & Cacao Ceremony with Lucy & Sarah

  • Wellness Sanctuary 32A Main Street Napier, Hawke's Bay, 4110 New Zealand (map)

Yin Yoga and Cacao Ceremony- a combination for deep bliss: Join Sarah Beale and Lucy Brooking for this beautiful heart opening experience. 

We will share cacao in a ceremony, allowing the magic of the plant to reach the depths of our hearts, and from there begin to melt into Yin yoga postures to connect to ourselves and to know our inner essence.

Designed to target the connective tissue, ligaments and joints, Yin yoga is relaxing and grounding. We use a lot of yoga props to support the postures and each posture is generally held for about 2 to 5 minutes (sometimes longer) to allow the muscles to fully relax and the stimulation to be felt in the deeper tissues of the body. As it is very meditative and peaceful, this enables you to connect to your breath and travel deeper inward. 

Lucy on Cacao:

Cacao is like magic in a cup, and when drunk with intention and mindfulness, in Ceremony, can activate the heart, ignite joy, offer depth and calmness, and provoke gratitude. So be ware... lots of amazing things happen when Cacao is involved!

Cacao Ceremony is a practice that is available to all, and welcome to all. As long as you like chocolate, you’ll like Cacao Ceremony 😊

Why Cacao?

You’re probably familiar with Cacao as being something that you put into you smoothie... this is all I knew Cacao to be, for many years, until I experienced Cacao Ceremony, and I have never looked at Cacao the same way.

Cacao has now become and integral part of my life, as well as being the yummies hot drink, it has also enabled me to deepen my meditation and yoga practices.

We are fortunate enough to have Cacao from Peru, where it has been used for thousands of years in Ceremony by the Inca.

When we have Cacao Ceremony we are embracing the more mystical or energetic qualities of Cacao (also called ‘food of the gods’) but we also recieve the health benefits of Cacao (being a superfood & high in magnesium and iron).

Let your curiosity guide, and join us for this journey!
