About this trip

Gather together for an unforgettable and deeply nourishing yoga retreat. This retreat will be a wonderful way to step away from the busy world and immerse yourself in the practice of yoga and mindfulness during the summer season.  This getaway will be a perfect way to deepen your practice and better understand the foundations and principles that make up the therapeutic yoga discipline, helping you learn how to move with more awareness and safety whether it's in your day to day life or other yoga classes.
Daily practices will be offered along with a little body mechanics and functional anatomy lectures peppered into our time together.  The goal is to have all yogis walk away from the weekend feeling rested, recharged and centered, with a whole new awareness of how one moves throughout their world.  All ages, bodies, and skill levels welcome.

Your Organizer

Jill White Lindsay
Originally starting her career as a high school biology teacher, Jill shifted her presence from the classroom to the yoga studio. After a bout with cancer, Jill realized the yoga she’d been practicing could help with pain management, mood regulation, and overall strength and wellbeing. Yoga became an anchor in her life, and her passion for yoga blossomed as her drive to teach persisted. She received her 200-hour training from the White Lotus foundation in Santa Barbara, studying under Ganga White and Tracy Rich. Jill then expanded her discipline to teach therapeutic yoga. She received her advanced therapeutic yoga training under the mentorship of Harvey Deutch, and still meets with him weekly assisting in his physical therapy clinic in San Francisco. Therapeutic yoga is a process of empowering individuals by helping increase self-awareness and learning how to work within one’s own strengths and limitations. The goals of this practice can include reducing or eliminating symptoms that cause suffering while improving foundation and function. But therapeutic yoga is not just for the ‘mature’ or injured, it is a practice every body can benefit from by going deep in a safe and healing way. Jill’s focus in her classes is to cultivate a healing environment and empower students to become more connected with their bodies and minds from a kind and compassionate perspective.
