Slowing Down: A Yoga, Self-Care, and Loving-Kindness Retreat
Heather Lindemann and Cole Schlam
December 4–6, 2020
Note: This program is being rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please see updates about SMC’s response to the pandemic here.
Embrace a slower pace and notice how it offers a deeper connection to mind, body, and spirit. Join Cole Schlam and Heather Lindemann for a contemplative weekend yoga retreat where we will connect with maitri (loving-kindness) and embrace the art of “doing less.” We will enjoy multiple daily yoga classes (slow flow, yin, and restorative), journaling, hiking, and other self-care practices. At the heart of this retreat will be the space to slow down and practice loving-kindness towards oneself.
A student, teacher and seeker of yoga for almost two decades, Heather Lindemann, 500 E-RYT, is a skilled yoga teacher specifically in the modalities of restorative yoga, gentle yoga, vinyasa flow (all levels) and Yoga Nidra. Heather received her restorative yoga training with Judith Hansen Lasater and is a member of the Yoga, Body Image Coalition. She has also participated in intensives with Sally Kempton who she considers her primary meditation teacher.
Cole walks side-by-side all of us on this crazy, heart-filled journey and shares the tools she has learned along the way. An E-RYT 500, Cole studies and teaches many forms of yoga including flow, yin, and slow flow. Great influences on her teaching and practice include her main teacher, Janet Stone, the writings of Pema Chödrön and researcher-storyteller Brené Brown, trauma-informed yoga teachers such as Hala Khouri, and functional alignment and yin teacher, Bernie Clark.
