New Year’s Yoga Retreat Align Your Body, Awaken Your Heart

For all levels.

The secret to a fulfilling life lies within your own heart. The new year is an auspicious time to pause, reflect, and find wholeness and renewed enthusiasm.

Learn to align with nature—and access your divine nature—in a retreat that includes

  • Ashaya Yoga® (ashaya means “abode of the heart”), blending precise alignment techniques with heart wisdom for increased wellness
  • Active and restorative poses, creative movement, partner yoga, breathwork, mantra meditation, and chanting
  • Tantra philosophy and the five elements
  • Creative journaling, contemplation, and sacred dialogue to let go of limiting beliefs.

Release the old and usher in the new as you connect with yourself and others in a safe and supportive community.
