Nature. Nourish. Practice. Elevate.
Retreats are where the magic happens. Where we can connect to our self and welcome what arises when we remove the day to day demands of life. I invite you to shed the busy and welcome a reset in community for a weekend long retreat in the north woods of Wisconsin. We will harness this time of transition from winter to spring, and utilize tools to vitalize, clear, empower, and inspire. Join me at this idyllic location to dive deep into yogic wisdom and practice. Located in the rural woods of Willard, Wisconsin, we will come together on Thursday evening through Sunday afternoon in this supportive and serene atmosphere to deeply nourish and retune ourselves to innate intelligence and vital energy recharged through practice. Practices will include yoga, meditation, yoga Nidra, a day of silence, writing, and group reflection- as well as ample free time to explore the surroundings and enjoy the quiet, creative atmosphere. Winter’s dark and cold can leave us devoid of energy and aspiration. On this cusp of the shift from winter to spring, let’s harness the moment and engage with renewal.
The retreat features all lodging, meals, and opportunities to practice yoga and meditation daily. Price depends on lodging preference and includes single rooms, and shared modern or rustic hermitages (see description below for details). Winter’s dark and cold can leave us devoid of energy and aspiration, on this cusp of the shift from winter to spring, harness the moment and engage with renewal. $100 deposit reserves your lodging preference.
