Yoga Retreat for Women of Color Lighten Up and Let Go

When we choose to live fully, love deeply, and honor ourselves, we are taking steps to lighten up and let go. It all begins with a change in consciousness about who we are, what is happening in our lives, and what we truly want. We start by understanding, honoring, respecting, and loving ourselves right now.

This program includes yoga practice, meditation, learning to breathe and release tension, and an exploration in the art of relaxation, all with the support of a community of women. We’ll dance, speak, share, listen to each other, and play as we practice yogic methods for taking life less seriously, and discover how yoga philosophy can help us look at life straight on.

Magical things can happen when you learn to lighten up and let go.
