Gather together for an unforgettable and deeply nourishing yoga retreat. This retreat will be a wonderful way to step away from the world and immerse yourself in the practice of yoga and mindfulness before the busy holiday 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. Additionally, on Saturday morning we get to practice in a sacred Tibetan meditation hall. 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.
Accommodations are beautiful lux cabins. Two yogis share a cabin where you each have your own private bedroom and you share a spacious living room and bathroom. 5 vegetarian meals will be served during our weekend together. All ages, bodies, and skill levels welcome. Yes, you can come if you’ve never done yoga before! This practice is slow, gentle and sweet.
