Rejuvenating Yoga Weekend Retreat

Friday, January 3 – Sunday, January 5, 2020

Join Bianca on this yoga retreat to help nourish the body, mind and soul. During this retreat you will explore different styles of yoga, meditations and breath work. This will allow you to open yourself up mentally, emotionally and physically. You will also have free time to explore the nature trails, take naps, read… do what you need. Bianca will also be offering Reiki sessions for a small additional fee during your time here.

Yoga is for all bodies, all ages and all fitness levels.

Hatha Yoga – This well known style of yoga, includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing techniques) to help bring peace to the body, mind and soul. The postures include the known sun salutations as well as seated and standing postures/movements.

Yin Yoga – Slower paced class with asanas (yoga postures) that help get your body into a deeper stretch while focusing on correct alignment as well as how to listen to the body. These postures are held for longer periods of time (approx. 2-4 minutes) and can sometimes be held with props. We do this to get our body the mobility it needs without overdoing it.

Restorative Yoga – A very gentle, soothing and passive style that uses props to hold seated and supine poses. These poses can be held for 5-7 minutes each. The aim is to allow your body to completely relax into each pose while working on the mind and breath.

Reiki – Energy Healing. It is an energetic massage of the central nervous system and is a hands on and off technique. It will help you to reach a deeper level of relaxation while allowing your key energy centers (Chakras) to open, become balanced and grounded.

 

Reiki sessions (with crystal therapy) are an additional $50.00 (1hr)

Book in advance – limited spaces

Meet Your Facilitator

Becoming a yoga teacher seemed impossible to Bianca; she thought she had too many limitations along with her intense stage fright. She worked hard to gain the strength in herself to take and complete the yoga teacher training program of 250 hours.

Bianca’s passion for yoga started with her journey to better her physical health after dealing with many emotional challenges and debilitating illnesses over the years. This allows her to bring compassion and understanding to each and every class. Along the way she discovered that there is so much more to yoga than just the physical aspect. Her classes work on gaining better body awareness, focusing on breath and working towards mind and body relaxation.  She believes that the fundamentals of yoga and meditation are very important in furthering the students’ personal practice.

She strongly believes that yoga allows you to open up through movement and find yourself. She understands that it can be a challenging process and therefore, is determined to create a safe, positive and peaceful environment for every student.

Bianca is also a Certified Reiki Practitioner. She wants to help people have a better understanding how to connect to our essence, our energies and our higher selves. She wants to also help each student bring the knowledge of working with our energies/our chakras into the yoga practice, as that can lead to a better understanding of who we are as individuals, bringing ourselves into our higher consciousness, connecting or reconnecting with nature, and becoming content and happy with anything that comes our way.
