Why retreat? A retreat will mean different things to different people. For some it is a quiet time to reflect on their life and choices. For others it is a spiritual journey to connect with something larger. For others, it is simply a chance to get away. Yoga retreats provide a time for you to leave your life behind to explore something new through daily yoga practice and meditation. Not only do you leave behind family and your daily obligations, but we arrive into a beautiful place dedicated to yoga and healing. We will be far from any city so take the time to enjoy it.
Beginning 2018, Liz will offer three retreat types per year- a more social / community building retreat, a summer adventure / travel retreat and a transformational retreat. Retreats will be offered Spring, Summer and Fall. Be sure to register early to reserve your space!
In order to get the most out of your retreat time, please note the following:
- Plan on not using your phone.
- Keep your computers at home and think about leaving your email behind for a few days. It will still be there when you return.
- Give your life a break. You will be so grateful you did. Some of our moms do Skype every few days to see their children and we completely understand this.
- Allow time for self-care and rest.
