Practices for Mind-Body Integration

We know stress isn’t good for us. But what if we could see it as an opportunity?

In this immersive workshop, you will learn that stress is an invitation to change. Through conscious living practices and the daily implementation of actionable stress-reduction tools, you will discover how to create mental and emotional stability — and learn to thrive as you become skillful in the art of living your life.

Join us in the serenity of the Blue Ridge Mountains to transform stress and tap into the Inner Mastery which exists within you.

 

Over the course of four days you will:

• Learn to use mindful movement, including Vessel Yoga and walking meditation, to release mental and physical rigidity or chaos and access your authentic free will.

• Deeply relax and enliven your energy with innovative breathing practices and deep guided relaxation; clearing holding patterns in the physical and energetic body to improve health and wellbeing.

• Experience the revealing power of silence – and rewire the brain for Mind-Body-Being integration.

• Engage in group dialogue and other practices which will create space in the heart and mind, and allow you to discover greater satisfaction and purpose in life.

 

You will go home feeling balanced in mind, body, and emotions, and with an embodied understanding of highly effective stress and lifestyle management techniques.

To prepare you for the immersion there is an optional free online program available to all registrants.

Yoga Alliance CEU credit available for yoga teachers.

 

Open to all.

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.
