A retreat gives us time away from our daily routine to immerse in a whole practice of yoga, one that fulfills our innate desire to connect within and deepen a felt-sense of breath, alignment and possibility. We will explore a range of postures with a focus on centering down, to give postures a lightness and felt-sense of emerging awareness. Each morning begins with pranayama and meditation, followed by an “adagio” paced flow practice. Afternoons are for seated poses with a focus on alignment and integrated bodywork, finishing in a restorative session. After a delicious dinner we will gather to ‘wax’ philosophical and journal if desired.

You may like to make this a ‘tech’ free weekend by giving our contact info to your family should they need you. Most food allergies may be accommodated, within reason (it will not be a gluten free facility but there are gluten free foods). Students from our advanced study program will attend this retreat – all students with 3 or more years of experience welcome.
