with Britt Fohrman and Jeremy Levie
July 29-August 3 (Tuesday-Sunday)
Open to people of all levels of experience including expectant parents and those healing from illness or injury.
Come explore what it means to deeply rest in your own body and mind through Restorative Yoga and Zen.
Restorative Yoga gives us an opportunity to balance the effort in our lives with ease and surrender. Through gentle, supported poses, breath awareness and meditation, we will drop into a deep state of physiological relaxation. From this still place, the body is more able to access its natural ability to cleanse, heal, digest, sleep, conceive and build immunities. With the physical body at rest, a sense of mental, emotional and spiritual ease naturally follows. This retreat will also include dharma offerings, seated meditation, leisure time, gentle movement and stretching to complement our theme of cultivating ease, relaxation and surrender in all aspects of our lives.Retreat fee:
