About this trip

Winter Yoga Retreat at IslandWood with Tracy Hodgeman and Terilyn Wyre*

Sankalpa: A Resolution of the Heart 


Tracy and Terilyn* welcome you to join them for their Annual Winter Retreat, a magical weekend of nourishing yoga and deep inner exploration. This retreat will revolve around the setting of inspiring and lasting intentions as we cultivate and refine our understanding of Sankalpa.


Winter is the ideal time of year to take pause, to turn inward and reflect on what seeds of intention we’d like to germinate in the seasons ahead, while also identifying and weeding out whatever blocks new growth. How often do we find ourselves creating New Year’s resolutions only to have our best intentions thwarted by old ingrained patterns of behavior? This weekend will be dedicated to uncovering our true Sankalpa — a resolve that resonates deeply with our inner wisdom and serves our highest potential — and finding realistic and practical ways to manifest Sankalpa in daily life.


Our healing retreat begins with a grounding vinyasa practice on Friday evening at 4:00 pm, and ends with a closing circle and lunch on Sunday. Price of retreat includes all classes, lodging, healthy and delicious meals featuring local, organic and sustainably sourced ingredients, and use of the facilities.


During these three days we will enjoy yoga classes on Friday afternoon and evening, Saturday morning and evening, and Sunday morning (incorporating asana, yoga nidra, mantra, pranayama, and meditation). Morning classes will include more vigorous asana, afternoon and evening classes will be more restorative and introspective. We will support our self-inquiry with daily journaling, an art project, and a fireside ritual of letting go of the old to make way for the new on Saturday, interspersed with quiet times for reflection and relaxation.

About Your Retreat Leaders

Tracy Hodgeman

Tracy has been a full time yoga teacher since 1995, and teaches weekly group classes, privates, workshops, and retreats. She has a keen eye for detail, a compassionate heart, and a deep well of experience and knowledge to draw from which combine to make her a very effective (and surprisingly funny) teacher. She is fascinated by anatomy, physiology, poetry, self-compassion and mindfulness, as well as the power of words. She is humbled by the process of assisting people to find their heart's desire, and adores co-teaching with Terilyn during this blessed annual retreat.

Her authentic love of people creates an inclusive environment for EVERY BODY where each student feels equally welcome and valued.

Terilyn sees yoga as a way to express her spirituality, love, joy and liberation and to gather and hold sacred space.

We root our commitment in the eight limbs of yoga, precepts for living that originated in South Asia and Northern Africa, and honor the lineage of teachers that have informed us as practitioners of yoga in the West. We pledge to practice all eight limbs of yoga within our business and ourselves.

Reviews

The 8 Limbs organizers were wonderful and on point and well the first evening meal went extremely well, I had deep concerns around the way that NCI staff deprioritized our group and in several cases showed implicit disrespect for the administrative lead. There was an absence of NCI leadership and follow up during the weekend that lead to very uneven care for our group and this truly concerned me. The way our group who paid for an upgrade but were treated like second class citizens as compared to other guests who reaped the benefits of the upgrade. The staff needs an infusion of equity training because I believe implicit bias toward our team lead figured into this. Staff needs some work. Period.
