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.

Retreat to Recalibrate: Making Room For New Energy to Expand

Whether for a few hours, a day, or a week, the turn of seasons is an essential time to slow down for some sort of Retreat. Retreat literally means to withdraw or step back. Taking this time helps you break the cycle of habitual living and creates an environment for us to regain perspective on our life - to revive our energy, and reconnect to that which is most important to us. We see, hear and feel more clearly after a retreat. We can retreat any time, really.

For an instant retreat at work, enjoy a slow walk around the block and enjoy the sights, smells, movement of your body, and air moving in and out of your lungs.
