Put away the cell phone and the buzz of the city. This retreat will take you on a journey to deeply soothe your nervous system, align and rejuvenate your physical body and live from your authentic self!

We will have as a theme, "the center pole." So often life throws us off balance. This retreat will help us to align and center and refind our core!

The weekend will consist of movement lessons, yoga, laughter, connection, meditation, movement classes, nature, as well as personal and spiritual growth classes. You’ll also have plenty of free time to relax around the retreat center’s natural settings, spend time journaling, connecting with wonderful like-minded women, or sipping on a cup of tea.

Body

You will be guided through daily yoga & somatic movement classes to improve your flexibility, strength, and alignment.

Mind

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.

Spirit

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.

**Men, Women, and optionally even children welcome (if others are ok with it and we chip in for a babysitter).This weekend will consist of yoga, laughter, connection, meditation, movement classes, Somatic movement classes as well as personal and spiritual growth classes. All classes are optional.

"My experience with our group, was pivotal for me. I am now engaging regularly in yoga, have more clarity of thought,
& I am staying in my truth, not so concerned about what others think. Thank you for what you do ... you are a Gift.”

(Bob Lynch, 2019)

"Since this retreat, I can proactively manage any back, neck or shoulder pain before it becomes chronic.
Shara’s natural and intuitive style pinpoints how to refine your body’s movements and awareness to enable healthier pain free living."

(Dan, Mtn View, Financial Mgr)

"Wow. My right shoulder has never been so relaxed and lowered.
That hand Feldenkrais lesson was amazing. Feldenkrais is amazing."
