4 ELEMENTS RETREAT AGENDA

4 Elements Agenda

10:00 WELCOME DRINKS
Settle into the beautiful surroundings with a welcome drink on arrival. Meet your hosts and fellow
retreat-ers.

10:30-11:30 MORNING YOGA FLOW [Element Fire]
A gentle and warming yoga flow will softly enliven your energy for the retreat day ahead.
The element fire is related to the manipura chakra (solar plexus). This chakra focuses on how we
activate and regulate our inner fire and controls our strength, power and confidence as well as
supporting transformation. Our yoga sequence guides you through postures and flows that will
activate and clear the manipura chakra and the element of fire.

11:30-12:30 KAYAK / SUP [Element Water]
Connect to the element of water as you enjoy time on the lake either kayaking or stand up
paddleboarding. Following a brief introduction to your chosen craft you will have free time to
explore the lake. The element of water is associated with svadhisthana (sacral) chakra and links with
your emotions and creativity. As you float on the water you might like to visualise releasing any
emotions that you would like to let go of, letting them dissolve away into the crystal charged water
of the lake. Get creative with your kayak or SUP playing with turning, speed and body position to
enliven svadisthana and the element of water.

12:30-13:30 LUNCH
You will be provided with a delicious afternoon tea for lunch

13:30-14:30 SUP YOGA [Element Air]
SUP yoga is a unique and fun way to build balance and strength, clear the mind and relax in nature.
We will take a short mindful paddle to a beautiful, sheltered anchoring point before slowly exploring
yoga postures (asana) on our paddleboards.
The element air is related to the chakra anahata (heart). This element and chakra are associated
with love, freedom, openness and intellect. Through gentle heart opening postures we will look to
balance the air element encouraging the ability to give and receive love freely, growing a feeling of
light and openness.

14:30-15:30 GUIDED MEDITATION AND CRYSTAL HEALING [Element Earth]
An introduction to the crystals found here at crystal lake will be followed by calming and focusing
breathwork before you have time to choose the crystals that you would like to work with from our
collection.
Connect to the element of earth as you deeply relax with your chosen crystals and enjoy a full
guided meditation taking you on a journey through a beautiful forest. Septarian crystals found right

here at the crystal lake will provide a grounding and nurturing energy, interacting with muladhara
chakra (root) to balance the earth element bringing about a feeling of security, safety and stability.

15:30-16:00 DRINKS AND CLOSE
Enjoy a refreshing mint tea to gently awaken and uplift your body and mind before drifting home.

Samantha Lister

Samantha Lister

Helping people feel good in their body and mind is my passion. With extensive experience as a qualified holistic and massage therapist alongside being a 200hr Yoga Alliance Yoga Teacher I offer a range of sessions that support wellbeing including yoga, meditation, crystal healing, paddleboarding and SUP yoga.

The Venue

Crystal Lake View Therapies is based at the Ocean Walker Academy, tucked away down a country lane just off the A158 near Lincoln.
The purpose built 7 acre open water swimming lake and well kept lawn sits beautifully against a back drop of surrounding ancient Woodland.
Crystal Lake was designed for swimmers, with 3 main entry/exit points that are astroturfed for easy access.
The maximum depth is 2m, with varying depths from 1.2m - 1.8m throughout most of the lake.
Crystals were found during the lake dig, which we use as part of our Crystal Healing sessions - something quite unique to us! 

There are 5 outdoor changing cubicles along with toilets and an outdoor rinse shower.
A 12 seater Gazebo is situated at the top of the lake with incredible views and perfect for a spot of lunch or a quiet moment.
Crystal Lake water is natural and water quality tested on a regular basis - which is always excellent. We do not add chemicals to Crystal Lake.
