Yoga is a practice of awareness: body, breath and mind – the vehicles through which one finds harmony and connection with spirit. This retreat is paced to offer a gentle, meditative practice that allows you the opportunity to sink deeper into the asanas and gain a thorough awareness of your body’s needs.

A Typical Retreat Day 

Asana Practice 7:30-9:00 am – Our daily practice of breathing, physical postures and relaxation begins in the yoga space each morning.  The level of the class is gentle to intermediate; it will be adjusted to the abilities of the participants with the aim of the morning  being to deepen your practice.

Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation): to be arranged around other excursions

Relaxation Free Time 12 noon – 4:30 pm – Finding relaxation in our every day lives is often challenging.  Four hours of “me time”  is scheduled during the retreat with time for spa treatments, swimming or time just to be. This is your chance to harmonize with the natural environment and take time for your own exploration and rejuvenation.

Moving Inward 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm – Our afternoon practice will be a combination of meditation, chanting and restorative yoga.  We will explore techniques to combat stress and anxiety, so you feel empowered to incorporate these tools as needed into your day. This week long retreat provides an opportunity to move more deeply into your own awareness and growth.

Thanks so much Gabrielle, for the beautiful retreats you create. You seem so at ease in what could be a stressful position and I wonder how you do it. Maybe it’s part of your practice. Whatever, it works really well with you at the helm. You create a beautiful space for us to come to and be in and share in. You’re an exceptionally beautiful person to be around. That’s why it works so well. ~ Kristen
