Cultivate Greater Ease in Body and Mind

Do you feel like you need to realign and refresh your body and nervous system so that you can feel grounded and stable, with a vibrant sense of wellbeing?

This whole system reset is for you. Using techniques informed by physical therapy, yoga movement and meditation, Laura Terry and Whitney Wilkerson will guide you through a multi-disciplinary approach to create awareness and ease in the body.

Over the course of the weekend you will:

  • Restore, soothe, strengthen and energize the body in movement classes, including yin yoga, restorative yoga, embodied movement and somatic exploration
  • Learn physical therapy techniques to reduce muscular tension
  • Develop resilience and steadiness through relaxation practices including mindfulness and Yoga Nidra

You will take home new knowledge of a set of practices and strategies to find balance in body and mind every day.

Open to all. This workshop may be of particular benefit to caregivers in need of R&R.

CEU credits can be offered to Yoga Alliance certified teachers.

We do not recommend using your GPS for driving directions, as many roads are incorrectly marked in the navigation system and inputting our address will take you on a wild ride. Instead, we recommend using Google maps (above). Many prefer to travel the Blue Ridge Parkway route only May through October since the road closes often in winter.
