Workshop Details

Like the whales who gracefully navigate their winter migration down the California coast each year, we must cultivate a fluid mixture of perseverance, clear reckoning, skillful navigation of life's currents, and devotion to arrive at the extraordinary health and spiritual insight that yoga and Ayurveda promise. It is a deeply personal journey that is nourished by a fulfilling and sustainable personal practice. Three essential questions to ask before setting off are: What do I really want in my life? What do I really need? What are the most effective means for tapping into the source of healing and wisdom within myself?
This five-day retreat will explore how to find truly satisfying answers to these questions and encourage a flexible approach to committed practice using the tools of Shadow Yoga and Ayurveda. Shadow Yoga is a Hatha yoga system. A set sequence of Shadow Yoga practices will be taught in a step-by-step progression to promote body memory, refinement, and to facilitate home practice. Ayurvedic classes each day will include education and exercises for developing a personalized lifestyle and diet plan. Ayurveda expert Robert Svoboda will join us for two lectures.

All levels are welcome; yoga experience is recommended.
