“Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.” — Maya Angelou
Day-Long Yoga and Mindfulness Retreat:
Unplug and Breathe
Sunday, September 16th, 9:30 – 3:30
Sometimes it’s just hard to stop. Stop doing, stop running around, stop checking email and social media, stop the whirl of the busy mind. In this day-long retreat, we will practice how to unplug from your seemingly non-stop life. Breathing has long been used as a method to calm the addled and anxious mind. This retreat will focus on breathing techniques to help you calm and balance your nervous system.
We will enjoy indoor and outdoor yoga postures, pranayama and mindfulness meditation, as well as a mindful hike in the Chabot Regional Park to breathe in the sweet air of Mother Nature. We will also share a delicious al fresco lunch together.
You’ll have a chance to unplug from your digital life and from other things on your mental plate, in order to nurture yourself in the serenity of the here and now. Research shows that simply being present with what you are doing in the moment is great at reducing stress and anxiety. You’ll get a chance to practice the skill of present-moment awareness.
This retreat is open to all of my students and their friends, though a limited number of spaces is available.
Come rest and rejuvenate your mind and body amidst the company of like-minded friends and give yourself the gift of mindfulness.
Cost: Donation-Based (dana). Suggested range $75-$150.
