Life is about change and the last 14+ months have changed all of us! From the devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic with so many lives lost, unemployment, to the new ways we had to learn to adjust in our everyday lives. Not to mention the social unrest that happened around the world. How we move through change is so important. How we care and nurture, not only our friends and family but equally important is how we care for ourselves. Having good self-care practices, daily routines that lift us up and make us stronger from the inside, out. Plus, knowing ways that can reduce our stress and calm our monkey mind.
Were you able to nourish and nurture yourself over the past 14 months? It was hard, right? Many of us experienced isolation, having to adjust to working at home, perhaps homeschooling our children, not seeing our elderly parents. So much change! As we get back to a new normal, as we get vaccinated so we can go out and visit people, not have to wear a mask, we also need to get back to our self-care routines. Practices that will improve your health, strengthen your immunity, improve your sleep, and allow you to move through life with more ease.
The three disciplines, Yoga, Ayurveda, and the Alexander Technique provide a time-tested answer to all of the challenges we are facing today.
The Retreat consists of:
Daily breath-centered yoga classes
Private Alexander Technique lesson
Daily small group classes in postural re-education
