with Bill Miller
January 22-24, 2021 (Friday through Sunday)
Fee: $150, plus meals and lodging
Finding physical and emotional balance in life can sometimes be a challenge. This retreat will focus on finding balance, both physical and emotional, using yoga, breath practices, meditation and physical exercises, so that a sense of contentment and well-being can be more fully realized.
This retreat is open to those who have never practiced yoga as well as experienced yoga practitioners. Consistent with the Viniyoga lineage, postures (poses) will be adapted to fit the needs of each participant. Breath techniques will be practiced to experience their role in creating balance in body and mind. Seated meditation, either in a chair or on a cushion, will follow certain yoga practices. Strength and balance exercises will be more fully enjoyed with the use of a chair or other props.
Past participants have included those who want to learn how to safely stretch or build strength and experience the role of breath techniques in fostering greater energy or relaxation. Others have enjoyed experiencing simple exercises that enhance balance and strength. This retreat, although simple in its approach to well-being, may take participants deeper into their own spirituality. The yoga postures, breath work and even the exercises are designed to foster mindfulness, self-discovery and spirituality as conditioning gives way slowly to our innate goodness.
