Escape to nature with us!
July 23rd - 25th / Geyserville, CA
This is a retreat focused on Mamma’s (and we will have child care available for any little ones).
Mamma, my guess is you are long overdue to treating yourself to a vacation get-a-way focused on YOU. We encourage you to unplug, unwind, and allow your mind, body, and spirit to be soothed and cared for in nature!
There are goats and peacocks and parrots and amazing animals at this zoological reserve. Perfect for the kiddos!
Daddys are welcome too!
You will be guided through daily yoga & somatic movement classes to improve your flexibility, strength, and alignment.
You will learn practices to shift emotional and energy blockages and release negative beliefs and social conditioning and reconnect to the wisdom of your heart.
Through meditation, grounding and centering yourself in a nature setting, you will have the opportunity to reconnect to the truth of who you are.
What is Feldenkrais?
The Feldenkrais method®, emphasizes the connection between the mind, body, and spirit. You will be guided through gentle movement sequences which have an extraordinary effect on adapting the nervous system towards its optimal state. The method is great for easing body aches and pains and helping us to regain clarity, focus, and direction.
As a result of the yoga and Feldenkrais you may:
-Free your body from stiffness, aches, and pain.
-Improve your skeletal alignment, flexibility & physical mobility.
-Decreased anxiety, stress, and sleep issues.
-Improve strength and agility.
-Improve your intuition.
Be prepared to experience a subtle yet amazing shift inside in this environment of ease and pleasure.
