Description

Imagine if complete wellness were your way of life! That is entirely possible — and mind-body movement pioneer Ellen Barrett will show you how.

This inspiring weekend includes yoga, breathwork, dance and meditation. It offers an ideal balance of invigoration and restoration, making it perfect for all levels of fitness and for both men and women.

It’s all about feeling good.

Through mind-body workouts, yoga, guided meditation, lecture and relaxation you will learn how to:

  • Exercise for total wellness, not just physical health
  • Make relaxation and hard work coexist comfortably
  • Use your breath to eradicate anxiety and manage stress
  • Empower and uplift yourself with affirmations
  • Easily incorporate meditation into your life

You will take home the skills and inspiration to improve your wellbeing — along with a 10 page packet with all of the key details from the retreat.

 

Items to bring: water bottle and flip flops/slip on sandals.

 

CE credits may be available from Kripalu for social workers.

 

Open to all. No yoga or meditation experience necessary.
