Our bodies are formed with inherent streams and pools of brilliant light and energy. During the dark days and long nights of winter, it can be easy to forget about this innate luminosity. We might find ourselves getting lost in the shadow of our own negative thoughts, habits, and beliefs, or begin to disturb our inner calm with the storms that swirl around us. Through the practice of yoga, we can reclaim this radiance, and lead ourselves out of the winter within—to a greater sense of peace and joy.

In this weekend yoga retreat, we will discover ancient wisdom gleaned by sages over years and lifetimes of practice and experimentation. The sages’ insights tell us we are more than a dense body with a chaotic mind, lacking control over our decisions and life. Experience practices that establish connection, uplift the spirit, and remind us that our inner and abiding radiance is stronger and more resilient than the temporary darkness of winter, at both the personal and collective level.

During this weekend yoga retreat you will experience:
  • Yoga asana to enliven the body, awakening the intelligence and power that lie dormant in every cell and tissue
  • Guided pranayama practices to awaken to and surrender into the streams of energy and light flowing within
  • Reminders from sacred texts of a guiding intelligence that is just a breath away
  • Specific meditation practices that direct awareness to an unlimited reservoir of radiance, clarity, and beauty

These systematic yogic practices can establish us in the fountain of inner grace that nourishes our lives with abiding peace and joy. Join Shari Friedrichsen for a weekend of turning inward, and leave with the knowledge and tools to continue deepening your relationship to a greater sense and appreciation of self.
