ACTIVITIES & WORKSHOPS

When you stimulate your physical self you have opportunity to move more deeply in your mental, emotional and spiritual self. Whether you are an active mover or just starting to get your body in motion the sessions and activities included in your retreat are mindful and accessible.


Each day of your retreat will be full of different, creative movement opportunitites that will facilitate your exploration in themes of body, mind and spirit connection.

 

Ultimately, this is your retreat. Everything we have planned for you is optional. There will be ample time for personal, quiet, self-reflection. This will be a vital part of connecting and embodying all you find at this retreat. As you choose what to be a part of we encourage you choose with openness; open to challenge yourself into new beliefs about what you are capable of and comfortable with. This is a time to try new things, or refine your current movement practices, with support and guidance.
