a Fall Retreat

October 23 - 25, 2020

Celebrate life. Connect with nature and your inner strength. This weekend explores yoga through the lens of Tantra and the post-classical time period. Movement, pranayama, mantra, and meditation will be the bedrock for this explorative weekend.

Open to all levels.

The Experience

Upon arrival, you will be greeted and shown to your selected room. Friday night begins with a welcome ceremony and your first group yoga class. A nourishing vegetarian dinner is served afterwards. Saturday morning begins with a tantric mediation and a manta ritual followed by silent breakfast. There will be free time to explore the nature trails, read in the sunroom, or just be still and silent in your cozy room. Saturday afternoon dives deep into tantric practice again, in the homestead's barn. The yoga itself is wild and fun and is designed to liberate and ignite the true Self. There will be time to integrate what we have learned and to share it within the group.This weekend will be like nothing you have experienced before. There is more planned, but you will just have to show up to discover what that is.
