Choose Your Path - Personal Growth Program

Event Header Image

Break the monotony of unproductive patterns affecting your life. Redefine personal values and purpose that align with your most authentic self. During this weekend you’ll grow as an individual as well as have fun with others along the way.

Kat Danio, certified yoga therapist and experienced yoga teacher, will be your guide to support you on your journey to a self-awakened, inspired life. Gain new perspective and knowledge through workshops and discussion, experiential work, and reflective activities such as journaling, nature walks, and yoga sessions, as well as restorative-meditative and active practices.

In this program you will:

  • Delve into conscious and unconscious motivations that drive your responses to everyday events
  • Learn introspection and mindfulness techniques to relieve daily stresses
  • Be empowered to release what is not enhancing
    your life and develop naturally into being the
    primary creative force within all aspects of your
    life.

Students of all levels are welcome – including beginners and yoga teachers. 

For yoga teachers (YA): 18 CE credits, cost $40.00 during registration.

Are you seeking more adventure? Cycle of Transformation event provides a path for everyone. If the Personal Growth Program isn’t the direction you seek then register for the Mountain Bike Adventure. The Mountain Bike Adventure is a blend of skill building sessions and then taking what you’ve learned to the trails. Come alone or, even better, invite friends!

Hurry…space is limited! The first 15 registrants will receive a FREE gift tote filled with goodies valued at over $50.

A warning about using GPS!

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.
