Stillness & Abundance in the Great Outdoors

November 9 - 12, 2023

Stillness & Abundance in the Great Outdoors

Luxuriate in the great outdoors in this winter reset.

The intention for this retreat is embracing the Stillness and Abundance of the Great Outdoors. As we prepare for winter, taking time to balance our doshas as we enter a Kapha season, it is important to nurture our internal systems. Kapha season presents a time to slow down, take a deep breath and appreciate the natural world withdrawing and becoming dormant. There is a stillness in the air; this silence invites us to allow a subtle invitation to redirect our own energies. The calm and peaceful environment in which we will be sharing space is the perfect antidote to the fast-paced mobility of the fall.

During this retreat we will explore methods to cultivate a light heart and a sharp sense of purpose to counter the cold weather approaching. We will invite warmth into our mind, body and relationships while creating frequent opportunities for fun and laughter. This time of the year is an excellent opportunity to engage in meaningful relationships and to socialize while creating time for necessary quiet time and reflection.

Our accommodations were specially designed by award-winning architecture firm GWWO to align with our bodies' natural rhythms, helping us to readjust our circadian rhythms. Aside from our regular offerings of Vinyasa and Yin classes, our sessions will feature Yoga Nidra classes tailored to our intention of finding stillness and comfort in our body. These formal sessions will be enhanced by the beauty of our surroundings. Being in nature will allow us to truly disconnect from the stresses of daily city and suburban life, allowing us to reset our psyches and relax our bodies and minds. Partaking in activities such as forest bathing, stargazing and fire gazing will allow us to truly unwind.
