Winter Calm Retreat

December 9 - 12, 2021

Winter Calm Retreat with Nikki + Kathleen

Winter is a time of shorter days, colder nights, and the busy-ness of the holidays. The Winter Calm retreat is an opportunity to quite literally get into the more natural cycle of the season by immersing ourselves in nature.

This retreat is a chance to slow down, go inward, and reconnect with nature's cycles through yoga practice, hiking, and connection. Join Nikki and Kathleen for four days/three nights of checking in with your own inner world, getting outside to observe and experience nature, and give yourself space to align to your own natural rhythm as we crossover into the winter season.

Meets Your Hosts,
Nikki + Kathleen

Yoga began as an option to running in the snow for Nikki. It has since become a lifeline, a life guide, a stress reliever, an opportunity to create space and a space created to go inward. She completed a 200-hour teacher training certification at Tranquil Space, DC in 2005. Since then she has also completed Baby and Me teacher training, Pilates certification from the Pilates Institute of MD, Laughing Lotus Super Sequencing 25-hour training, Venice Beach, CA in 2015 and Laughing Lotus Bhakti 50-hour training, Rishikesh, India in 2020.

Nikki is a registered yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance and is dedicated to continuing her mind/body education, and is currently pursuing her certificate in Yoga Therapy. Her favorite part of the practice is that it is ever changing.

Yoga began as a way to detox from her weekend choices, and to heal an injury for Kathleen. Yet over the last few years, yoga and meditation have changed the course of Kathleen's life, and probably saved it a few times too. Kathleen is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) 200 hours with Yoga Alliance (January 2018). She has received training through Laughing Lotus Advanced Bhakti Teacher Training 50 hour program in Rishikesh, India (February 2020) and Trauma Recovery Yoga (T.R.Y.) 20 hour program (June 2019).

Kathleen is currently pursuing her 300 hour teacher training certificate through Janet Stone's Yoga School. When she’s not teaching yoga, she hosts regular Moon Meditations, loves to deep dive on astrology, and has a 9-5 as management consultant.
