Specifics for the weekend:
After checking in to Mayacamas around 4pm on Friday we will delve into a calming welcome practice to begin retreating. This will be followed by our first delicious healthy meal, with veggies plucked from the organic garden. All dietary restrictions will be honored.
Saturday will begin with meditation and pranayama (breath work) followed by a continental breakfast and then an active yoga practice. After lunch there will be ample time to hang out in the gorgeous jacuzzi, swim in the salt-water pool, take a hike, canoe on the lake, play horseshoe, croquet, read or nap! For those of you who wish to do an intense physical practice, there will be an early afternoon intermediate/advanced class. Late afternoon we will come together for a soothing restorative class followed by dinner and a campfire.
On Sunday after practice the retreat will culminate with a 12pm brunch. Everything is optional, and you will be encouraged to do what you need to restore and refresh yourself.
