Join me for a Weekend Retreat, this October 27-29, 2017.
(Sliding Scale tuition keeps this retreat more accessible to folks with different income levels.)
Join me for a rejuvenating weekend of yoga, nature connection, and contemplative practices at gorgeous Earthdance Retreat Center in Plainfield, Western Massachusetts.
I've reserved the gorgeous sunlit circular Umbrella Studio for our yoga practices, surrounded by stunning New England woods and hiking paths...Plus there's a wood-fired sauna. Seriously, you don't want to miss this one.
I'm calling this retreat "Practice + Rest", and along with plenty of yoga, you'll explore the practice of resting deeply and reclaiming a sense of spacious relaxation.
Activities include daily yoga and meditation classes, journaling prompts and discussions, delicious organic family-style meals, and an evening bonfire. Plus, there will be plenty of unscheduled time for you to wander the woods, read a book, take a sauna, or stretch, dance, and practice yoga on your own.
accommodation for your stay
Comfortable and simple...
The Gratitude Lodge provides simple and clean dormitory style sleeping space, much like a yoga ashram. Shared bathrooms are just down the hall. The building itself is architecturally beautiful and unique, with 3 stories of lodging options. Limited single or double rooms may be available for an additional fee; please note on your registration if you'd like to learn more.
the retreat schedule
A balance of rest and practice...
Arrival is on Friday around 5pm. You'll have time to get settled and then we'll have an opening circle and yoga practice before our first delicious meal together. There will be two yoga, meditation and journaling practices on Saturday, with plenty of free time as well. Other activities include a bonfire, sauna sessions, and hikes in the woods. Sunday will include yoga practice and a forest meditation, before heading home refreshed in the early afternoon.
meals for the weekend
Earthdance is known for their skillfully yummy organic and vegetarian cooking. From dinner on Friday evening through lunch on Sunday, you'll be treated to delightful tastes, with options for gluten free and vegan eaters. (Please note on your registration if you have allergies or specifically dietary restrictions.)
