About The Event

Event Details

Are you interested in learning the basics of yoga practice? Have you been curious about how to start a meditation practice? Have you simply lost touch with these practices that brought you peace and clarity? If so this event is for you.  Over the course of the weekend, we will explore all of this and more while we settle into a rhythm with nature by sleeping under the stars and rising with the sun.  Dress for comfort and mobility as we will explore different styles of yoga and meditation. 

Feel free to bring a journal for reflection and comfortable hiking shoes if you wish to explore the trails.
