It’s happening – and we’d love for you to be a part of it.
There will be 2 yoga classes offered daily (may shift depending upon arrivals, departures, and excursions).
The morning class will always be Vinyasa Flow class. This class will be for all levels, with plenty of room to modify and adjust to make your own. It will be a combination of a warm-up, sun salutations, standing/balancing postures as well as seated and lying down on your back postures.
We will explore different yet very accessible and rewarding breathing exercises and always make space and time for meditation - this place is so perfect for the practice of meditation!
The afternoon class (unless decided otherwise by the group) will generally be geared for restorative and yin postures moving toward meditation and deep relaxation - we will use the lovely and supportive props Soulshine provides to support our morning and afternoon practices!
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BRING A MAT UNLESS YOU PREFER TO.
These classes will be created with the intention and purpose of taking the time necessary to care deeply for our bodies and minds.
We will build strength where needed, add flexibility and mobility in those typical tight areas, work on our balance and stability, improve our breathing and overall energy, and reduce stress and tension while having plenty of moments to contemplate the current state of your life as it is and how maybe you could start making some specific choices that will take you in a more purposeful and self-directed place in your life.
What will each day look like while on this retreat?
Above is an average day not taking into account activities, bodywork, etc that you’ll most likely participate in. Also, remember that this is your time away, you can choose to do it all or none, up to you and it’s all good whatever you do!
