Ignite your passion for being alive here and now. Get ready to embrace all of you courageously and authentically. Let go of old patterns that keep you stuck and embrace a new paradigm that aligns with your highest self. Let go of the striving without forward movement. Invite in a deeper connection to nature, yourself and those in your life.

Join us for 3 magical days of connection and practices that help you fully embody your most vibrant, authentic self. Learn how easy it is to fully live without doing more. We will practice techniques to help us elicit sustainable change such as: yoga, breathing, writing, meditation, nature, wellness, healthy food, play and self-inquiry. We will also explore profound strategies on how to re-pattern old habits so that we can live and act more often from our highest self. Come join us! Your heart and soul will thank you for months to come.

Beginner to advanced yoga practitioners welcome.
