A New Year's Winter Renewal Retreat

A New Year's Winter Renewal Retreat

Come join me to align with nature and savor winter’s gifts as you slow down, let go, and kindle your inner glow. 

In the cold months, the earth stops producing and replenishes its energy reserves. Like the earth, we need to slow down, turn inward, and recharge instead of depleting our energy.

This weekend retreat will guide you through an artful flow of slow vinyasa yoga, restorative yoga, and deep relaxation to help you harmonize with the season. We will emphasize internal observation, slow and dynamic movement, rhythmic breathing, and fully supported rest.

In fact, nature uses a big pause right now - between the expansion of summer and contraction of winter, she provides us with a moment of balance – the Autumn Equinox.

A Program To Integrate Your Practice Into Your Whole Life

The most frequent question my students ask me on the last day of a retreat is,  "How do I continue feeling this way, once I return home and re-enter 'real life'? How do I live this way?"

It is true that practicing yoga on retreat can be an incredible respite and renewing experience; offering us time to slow down and break our cycle of habitual living. A retreat can help us regain perspective on our life. Help us to remember and reconnect to that which is most important to us.
