Time for a reset? Refresh and rejuvenate as you reconnect to the peace within through yoga poses, breathing techniques, and meditation in this weekend retreat designed to give you tools to retain harmony in stressful situations. A transformative opportunity to nurture mind, body, and spirit in a serene setting with breathtaking mountain views.

Certified Yoga Therapist Jacqueline Allen-Magers will guide you in reconnecting with nature—Mother Nature and your inner nature. Experience tranquil moments as you unplug and unwind; rediscover the peace within you and explore the peace around you.

The retreat provides the opportunity to simply let go, relax, and reconnect as you:

  • Celebrate the joy of movement through the flow of vinyasa yoga and the transformative power of Viniyoga
  • Enjoy the serenity and heightened consciousness of meditation
  • Experience the calming effects of yogic breathing techniques
  • Cultivate practical spiritual tools for navigating life’s stressors
  • Embrace the peace of the mountains during nature walks
  • Connect with others in a like-minded community

You’ll leave refreshed with a renewed sense of inner peace and practical skills for maintaining that peace in your daily life.

This retreat is appropriate for all levels of yoga experience.
