Yin & Yang: It’s All About Balance

Yang & Yin energies

This retreat has a focus on mindfulness and movement practices to create and support a space of wellness from the inside out. Enjoy this time just for you as you experience opportunities for both movement and stillness creating a blended balance of Yang & Yin energies in body, mind and spirit.

Just being immersed in the Sugar Ridge environment is a naturally peaceful experience. This retreat is your time to relax, unwind and reconnect as you become mindful of all that surrounds you, and all that is within you. Listen to the birds and the breeze. Feel your heartbeat, the rise and fall of your breath. Just as important as stillness is mindful movement. This getaway will include opportunities to intentionally move energy through active yoga classes and mindful exercise or hiking. You can even have someone else support balancing your energy by booking a Reiki treatment!

Finding Balance

This retreat is a reminder that finding balance is rooted in rituals and practices that support us in meeting ourselves where we are at, and creating shifts to promote change from there… no expectations, no judgments.

– Cleanse and nourish your body with yummy organic vegan meals, while you nourish your soul.
– Come into physical balance with movement classes that will flex your muscles, as well as your mind and spirit.
– Create your resilient emotional balance with mindfulness-based meditation.
– Enjoy the beauty around you with time hiking the forest.
– Meet new friends and become your own best friend!

This is YOUR time

Throughout this retreat, you are invited to explore various forms of mindfulness meditations including sitting, walking and eating, as well as mindful movement through yoga and gentle exercise. No experience with yoga or meditation is necessary! This retreat is perfect if you’re curious about it but not sure where to start. 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 can ever give yourself, and honour your true needs.

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.
