Yoga-Alliance CEUs available for yoga teachers.
Join us for a weekend to embrace the transition from winter to spring—a time of new beginnings, rebirth, and renewal. You’ll explore the subtle energetic body using the Yoga-Mojo Method—mindful movement with intention and awareness of breath while seeking a balance of effort and ease—and be introduced to seven of the chakras, energy centers within the body.
Loretta Jo’s vinyasa practice includes dynamic asana sprinkled with yoga mythology, mantras, and mudras. Each practice session begins with meditation and breathwork and a story (or two), followed by an all-levels vinyasa class. Then, rest in Savasana to the sounds of the crystal singing bowls.
Spend this spring retreat relaxing amongst nature, breathing in the pure, cool air and exploring your inner self with yoga practices and meditations, nourishing with great food, and journeying through the chakras—all while immersed in a like-minded community.
Don’t miss this opportunity to deepen and renew your yoga and meditation practice, while caring for your body and mind with loving care.
This weekend retreat is open to all yoga students and teachers; accredited for Yoga Alliance CEU and YACEP workshops.
Loretta Jo has included time in the program schedule to allow for a spa treatment (additional cost) at Shankara, our award-winning Ayurveda spa. To insure availability, please pre-schedule your treatment by calling 800-392-6870, or schedule a free phone consultation here.
Loretta Jo Schlatzer, E-RYT 500, YACEP, RYS 200, is dedicated to teaching and connecting through yoga, and helping students and teachers use the practice of yoga as a means for personal and professional transformation. …
