Mindfulness, Yoga & Meditation: Cultivating Peace Within – Spring

Reconnect with yourself during this Spring retreat!

This week has a focus on mindfulness practices aimed at permanent stress reduction. Enjoy this time just for you! Learn to let go of stress as you feel more centered and able to deal with whatever life presents.

Just being immersed in the Sugar Ridge environment is a naturally peaceful experience. This getaway is your time to relax, unwind, and reconnect body, mind and spirit as you become mindful of all that surrounds you and is within you. Listen to the sounds of nature, the breeze. Feel your heartbeat, the rise and fall of your breath.

This retreat will teach you key tools to better cope with the stresses of daily life and more fully experience life in the present, rather than getting caught up in worries about the future.  Explore all aspects of yourself: what you eat, how you eat, how you feed your mind, and how you feel in your body.

Throughout the retreat you are invited to explore various forms of mindfulness meditations including sitting, walking and eating, as well as mindful movement through yoga and hiking.

No experience with yoga or meditation is necessary!

This retreat is perfect if you’re curious about it but not sure how to start or what to expect. It is a perfect choice for you even if you have physical limitations to movement, little or no meditation or yoga experience. Beginners will discover how to sit comfortably, and experienced practitioners can deepen their practice. No need to sit on the floor if that’s not for you – chairs are always available, as well as guidance on modified poses.

Everything during your retreat is completely optional. This is YOUR time. If you need to sleep in then skip the early morning yoga session. Allow this time to be the kindest gift you could ever give yourself and honour your needs.

What to Expect this Week

  • Cleanse and nourish your body with yummy organic vegan meals, while you also nourish your soul.
  • Come into physical balance with Yoga classes that will flex your muscles, as well as your mind and spirit.
  • Create your resilient emotional balance with mindfulness-based meditation.

Meet Your Facilitator

Jenny Jackson

Jenny Jackson has been immersed in Movement Education for more than 20 years. Jenny is a seeker of inner well-being, and she consciously aligns herself living with an open mind, an open heart and embodies joy & vitality which is reflected in her welcoming & inclusive style of instruction. She teaches with a strong anatomical influence while still deeply honouring the classical roots of yoga. Jenny believes that feeling vital and in harmony with others & within our own selves is the primary goal (in life and in our bodies), and practice should reflect this.
