Yoga, Pray and Play

We will explore prayer, poetry and spirituality through yoga and movement.  Body awareness exercises, breathing techniques and gentle yoga postures will be offered daily as well as time at the pool, walking by the river and exploring the grounds.  Rest your mind, relax your body and rejuvenate your soul with yoga and prayer. 

Periods of silence will offer participants an opportunity to reconnect to their heart and deeper yearnings. The yogic lifestyle involves living more mindfully and holistically in every aspect of our lives.  We will inquire into the ways we pray, connect with God and how we can bring God more present in our daily lives.  This retreat welcomes beginners as well as experienced yoga practitioners. Please wear loose comfortable clothing and bring a journal and a mat or beach towel.

Cost:  includes lodging, meals and program. Space is limited.

Yoga and the Art of Relaxation

Come rest, relax, rejuvenate, and have FUN through the exploration of yoga, and experience yoga nidra (the art of deep relaxation).  The heart of yogic teachings lies in the belief that a self-fulfilled person is a healthy person, free from dis-ease caused by stress and improper living habits.  The practice of yoga is designed to lead the person to an ever-increasing knowledge of herself/himself and the needs of her/his body and mind in order to achieve and maintain good physical and mental health and spiritual harmony.  Relaxation is a skill that is vital to life in the 21st Century.  We will utilize periods of silence to discover and listen to that deeper voice inside.  We will also experience the connection of the mind, body, heart and spirit.  This workshop is for the new and curious about yoga to the experienced yogis and yoginis. 

Please wear loose comfortable clothing and bring a journal and a mat or beach towel.

Cost:  includes lodging, meals and program. Space is limited.

Envision, Create and Allow the Life You Dream Of

New group forming open to men and women. Space is limited to 8 but you can reserve your's now! Details below.

Who are you NOW and who are you BECOMING?
What continues to CALL you?
What stops you from STEPPING OUT?

This group is emerging based a number of students, clients, friends, colleagues in transition and wanting support, regular ongoing connection, accountability, possibility beyond their own vision and steps to actualizing our dreams. We will create space and a container to listen and tune into what is emerging NOW and what is wanting to be known to you, asking the questions "who am I becoming," "who is my future self and what is my WORK in the world?" Through generative inquiry, journaling, presence and other techniques, we will explore actions, accountability, self-sabotage, little and big successes, staying focused, creating, and all that
emerges in the circle.
