Beyond the Postures: A Spiritual Yoga Retreat

With David Seybert and Miriam Rodgers

January 19 - 21, 2018

 

Yoga is more than physical postures – it’s a complete system of spiritual practice.

Yoga means “union” – first of body and mind, and ultimately, of your limited self with limitless freedom and joy.

In this retreat, you will:

  • explore the deeper dimensions of familiar yoga postures (asanas)
  • incorporate pranayama (breath/energy control) into your yoga practice
  • feel the energetic flow and spiritual attitude of each asana
  • experience a deeper practice of meditation

 

Next retreats in series – “Awakening the Chakras”, followed by “Raising your Energy
