Take Care of Yourself Retreat

Friday, February 26 – Sunday, February 28, 2016

 

Are you always taking care of others and giving your energy away?

Let this weekend be about reclaiming YOU time.

We will find affirmative mantras, learn powerful mudras, and move with intention and grace during your stay. This will be sure to be a deeply relaxing and nourishing weekend.

Join Leslie from Yoga Grove and Courtney from Om at Home Yoga, as they take full care of you on this retreat, teaching various self-care practices and offering a variety of meditation and yoga classes and workshops. Their signature Restorative Yoga and Thai Massage class is not to be missed: highly extolled by past participants, this class is kept small and offered at various times, so that everyone can get the most individual attention and time for massage.

Our all-inclusive price includes all meals, accommodation, classes and workshops.

No prior yoga experience is necessary, and all activities are optional, should you decide that sleeping in is your yoga for the morning.

Take this opportunity not only to take supreme care of yourself for a change, but to learn ways to continue to care for and prioritize your own well-being when you return home from Sugar Ridge.
