April 27-29, 2018 ~ Lanesboro, Minnesota
Spend an enchanting weekend engaging wholeheartedly with Yoga + Nature + Full Moon Ceremony
April is a sacred time to connect to our desires as we shift into our growing season. Our perceptions physically, spiritually and mentally are more dynamic during this time of the moon cycle.
Lanesboro, Minnesota in the spring is the perfect place to explore spirituality and your inner world through the lens of yoga. The earthy bucolic landscape is abundant for healing and presence.
All levels are welcome and beginners mind is encouraged.
The retreat begins at 1pm Friday so you will want to plan accordingly and make sure that you have plenty of space to settle in. Take a few days off. You deserve it! You’ll want to mentally prepare for the weekend and rushing is not encouraged. Be present for this weekend.
Claim your self-care!
Here is our full weekend schedule:
Friday 1:00-4:00 pm
Unplug. Three hours of space where we’ll practice yoga that soothes tensions, meditations that help us soften and relax our agendas, and come into receptivity for mental and physical replenishment. We’ll explore the tenants of impermanence and how they can help us feel less anxiety, more ease and relaxation from day to day as we connect to our innate buddha nature.
Friday 6:00 pm Group Dinner
Saturday 9:00-11:00 am
Yoga/Meditation. Hips & Hearts. This session will align and open our hips to create more internal/external space. The hips and heart are emotional centers in our body. In Yoga we can find pathways to healing the whole body, through proper form and alignment of the hips. Opening the hips leads to opening our heart. We’ll learn how the Buddhist Heart Sutra is good medicine for these times we live in, and learn a meditation that can be part of our daily loving kindness practice.
