The ultimate goal for the Relax and Renew Retreat is time for connection to yourself and the opportunity to rest and rejuvenate and take that experience back with you into daily life. The day begins with a 60-75 minute Yoga class and meditation. The classes will be focused on the basic movements, pranayama’s, Yoga Nidra and Meditation. We will build our asana practice daily and will be appropriate for beginners to long time practitioners with an emphasis on awareness, honoring where you are and connecting to what Yoga calls your “true nature”, a place of deep rest, rejuvenation and connection to one’s essence.
We will also have an afternoon or early evening non-physical Yoga practice that will vary in terms of content and may include Yoga nidra, meditation, Guided Imagery, Journaling and sound vibration.
