Be empowered to become who you truly are. Rediscover that inner light of love and joy.

Move past the stressors of daily life and immerse yourself in the beautiful practice of yoga. Get ready to be inspired as you learn new ways to use and develop your practices of yoga to connect to your heart center. Experience how yoga and meditation can accompany you on your journey to a life of laughter and wholeness. Feeling love in your heart center and taking some time to smile and laugh has exceptional health benefits – increase in blood flow and oxygen to all the major organs; enhanced endorphin levels which creates feelings of well-being and reduces pain; stimulates a healthy immune system; and reduces stress!

You will learn a range of yoga practices including asana (physical practices), pranayama (breathing practices), meditation, and yoga nidra to guide you back to your true nature and reconnect with your inner light. Explore yoga philosophy and begin to understand how this relates to your yoga practice beyond the mat and into your daily life to bring about peace of mind and joy in your heart.

Yoga teachers, Terry and Heather, combine their years of experience of study, practice, and teaching to bring you simple and direct approaches to learn how to maintain a life of wellness and happiness! The Yoga for Life! retreat is a chance to take a break from your busy life and become firmly grounded and centered.

Items to bring: Please bring extra yoga blankets and bolsters if you can. There is no required reading.

Open to all levels of yoga practitioners. Yoga instructors can apply these hours to their RYT CEUs.
