Yoga & Hike – The Essential Summer Retreat

The Essential Summer Retreat

Quiet your mind, open your heart, relax your body!

Join Jenny for an inspiring weekend of Yoga, meditation, outdoor fun and personal transformation.

This weekend is fun, relaxing, rejuvenating and a welcoming of summer!

Relax with the combination of gentle Yoga, and hiking.  Time in nature soothes your soul!  Exploring forest trails and soak up the fresh air and vitality of the peaceful surroundings.  Enjoy bonfires, forest walks, new friends and create sacred memories.

Enjoy the ambiance, new friends and depart at your leisure

Learn basic meditation techniques to calm your body, mind and spirit to help restore physical and emotional well being.  Who doesn’t need more of that?  Within the first two minutes of meditating, even for the very first time, your whole being shifts into a more healing, restful state.

Anyone can attend this retreat! No experience in yoga, meditation or canoeing is necessary. In fact, this is the perfect retreat if you are looking to explore new ways of being in the world or simply want a restful weekend away.  Make this weekend what you need – everything is optional!

Those with more advanced experience can benefit by taking their practice deeper.

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.
