Embracing Autumn: Fall into Yoga and Meditation Retreat

Friday, October 15 – Sunday, October 17, 2021

One of the most wonderful parts of living in Ontario is the transformational experience of seasonal change. Autumn reminds us to shed what no longer serves us, to celebrate the fruits of our labour, and to go within as we prepare for our upcoming time of winter ‘hibernating’. This 3-day, 2-night getaway at Sugar Ridge will offer you an opportunity to step away from the busy-ness of life in order to be truly present in the rich sensory experience of the fall season. Through mindful yoga classes, various styles of meditation, and contemplative discussions, and a Guided Journalling Workshop, you will have the time and space to reflect on the practice of slowing down and being an authentic observer of self. 

This is an ideal retreat for those who are experienced in yoga and meditation, but also appropriate for anyone who is brand new to these practices. Options are always provided, and all sessions are completely optional…you are here to nurture yourself and take care of your own needs.

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.

Expect well-planned, responsible, creative & intuitive instruction within Jenny’s classes and retreats. Trust that your needs will be supported and a sense of inclusion & community will always be a focus. Jenny takes her offerings (but not herself) very seriously, so you can relax and be yourself as she leads with humour and vulnerability.
