Yay! Summer is right around the corner...

Yay! Summer is right around the corner...

And as the days get warmer and longer, I start longing for more time to wander... more time to roam.  Of course my work brings me to beautiful locations. And this year I will be in the Berkshires for 2 weeks at Kripalu where I will be leading two retreats (weekend and 5-day formats) as well as presenting in the Narrative Medicine Conference. But I'm also carving out some true down time for myself as well including a long awaited family trip to Italy!

A Program To Integrate Your Practice Into Your Whole Life

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.

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.
