We practice breath awareness (Anapanasati) as a meditation practice, but retreat participants are welcome to practice in their own personal style that suits them. Simple, grounded guidance and spiritual teachings are offered to support this meditation practice and also the practice of Life.
For yoga, generally your morning practice is dynamic and envigorating, varying between Hatha and Vinyasa with other elements mixed in. Your afternoon practice is generally a gentle slow flow, restorative, or yin style designed to be meditative and balance the morning class. Beginner yogis as well as experienced practitioners are welcome! Our teaching style integrates all students in multi-level classes. Teachers will offer options for those with injuries and limitations, and also for those who want to build fire while taking their practice to the next level.
Here is an in depth view into our yoga vision.
*It is important to note that we will spend more time on yoga than on meditation, and that we are not a replacement for a dedicated silent meditation retreat. Beginner meditators are warmly welcomed here, however please be advised that meditation success is not guaranteed in 6 short days!
