Summer Retreat at Harmony Hill

We all come to yoga for different reasons. Some of us seek to rejuvenate our bodies and de-stress, some to quiet our minds and gain perspective, others to restore our spiritual connection and sense of compassion. When I first began practicing yoga I needed all of these things without even knowing I could attain them through the practice, but at the end of a really, really, really good class, they would all be there – patiently waiting for me.

Not only did this ignite a burning yoga addiction, it left me wondering … Why did some classes leave me feeling centered, balanced and calm and others much less so? Which poses lifted me up when I was barely dragging myself around? Which ones pulled me back to the ground when I had taken off like a rocket ship in my mind? How could I alter my approach to a posture, breathing technique or meditation to bring myself back to a state of harmony? And what were the underlying principals that would allow me to apply this practice to all areas of my life, rather then just what I do in the studio and on my mat?

If you are at all curious about what I’ve discovered and how you can tailor your yoga practice and daily activities to live a life in balance, I invite you to join me the first weekend in June for a local retreat on the Hood Canal. We’ll explore the synergy between Yoga and Ayurveda to uncover and sustain our whole self!
