About this trip

Come and join us for an expansive yoga weekend in a beautiful retreat setting. If it feels time to tend to your body, heart, and soul in a deep and rejuvenating way, this will be the perfect atmosphere to dive in, stretch out, unravel, and replenish.

In this retreat, we’re focusing on awakening the shakti to have the earth energy and creative energy of source come up through the body. We’ll be opening the pelvis and the belly center to remove obstacles that keep it from flowing. Opening to the presence of being that descends from the crown. We’ll work with the dance between the two of them. 

Our tendency is to be more in contact with one than the other — silence or creativity and activity. This is the dance between shakti and shiva. If you tend to feel off-balance — withdrawing or putting out a lot of energy, the soul becomes dull or overactive. This retreat will help you learn more about this in yourself and rebalance yourself. To find balance in ourselves is to help find balance in the larger world. It starts with ourselves.

This retreat will be a nourishing personal exploration and celebration of you exactly as you are. Our time together will emphasize learning to embrace yourself fully by including all of your parts so you can move into a felt sense of your own uniqueness and wholeness.

- yoga
- meditation
- chanting
- inquiry

You’ll come home from the weekend more intimately connected with yourself and with others. You’ll also have new tools to help you continue to support your aliveness beyond the retreat.

Excited to see you there!
