Refill Your Well: A Self Care Retreat for Yoga Teachers

 

Yoga teachers: Are you feeling stale in your teaching and overwhelmed by your To Do list? This Self Care Retreat is the medicine you need.

 

In order to be a skillful, successful and happy teacher you need time and space. You need time to rest and practice. You need energetic space to deepen your connections with other teachers.

 

This very special retreat just for yoga teachers combines all of this into a few beautiful days in the mountains.

 

Each day will include sunrise meditation (optional!), one active asana practice and one restorative practice as well as roundtable discussions led by senior teacher Francesca Cervero.

 

Topics covered in roundtable discussions will include:

The Support Challenge Matrix: A Structure for Private Lessons 

The Yoga of Discernment: What It Is and How To Teach It

Francesca Cervero

Francesca Cervero (she/her) has been a full-time yoga teacher since 2005. Her teaching is inspired by her foundational training with Cyndi Lee at OM Yoga Center, the years she spent as a dancer and the subsequent years she spent in physical therapy.

Wellness with Nature

Resting on 150 acres, River Mountain is bordered by Sweet Root Creek, Warrior Ridge and Tussey Mountain. River Mountain's stunning spaces are designed for reflection, mindfulness, and good vibrations on your self-care journey. Creekside yoga platforms, a restored barn turned wellness space, and the calm of nature make this the ideal destination for peace and wellness.

Located just a few hours from D.C., Baltimore, and Pittsburgh, in the mountains of Pennsylvania, River Mountain is remote yet easy to access.

History

Warrior Path

Running parallel to River Mountain's eastern ridge is Warriors Path, the great Iroquois Indian highway from Six Nations country, New York, to the Catawba country in the Carolinas. The historic path along Sweet Root Creek was one of the longest and most heavily traveled land routes in eastern North America, connecting Indigenous peoples over hundreds of miles.

The Underground Railroad

Black Valley was an active route along the Underground Railroad. Local histories principally credit four, free black residents with leading the aid network in this area: Rev. John Fidler, Elias Rouse, Joseph Crawley, and James Graham. Just to the south of the River Mountain property are 13 unmarked graves of enslaved people who died traveling the route to freedom.
