Yoga and Meditation for Well-Being
November 15–17, 2019
In this weekend retreat you are invited to unravel, unwind, unlearn, let go, pause, relax, go underneath, and touch a sense of your own well-being through restorative and gentle yoga, sitting and walking meditation.
Restorative Yoga uses blankets, blocks, and cushions as support so that we can rest thoughtfully in positions – the art of non-doing. The body seems to float as we release habits of excessive distracted thoughts, and the pain associated with worry, stress, and overdoing it. We experience agreement in the body’s underlying rhythms which then support the practice of meditation.
We are able to return to full, vibrant lives, with the ability to call on that which is wholesome, grounded and centered in ourselves, and be available for others
