Our focus for the weekend?  

THE PLEASURE OF POSSIBILITY

How many hours have you wasted obsessing about what you can’t do or should do or what will never change?

 

This mindset stems from old belief patterns that have been with us for a lifetime.   What if you could reverse these thoughts and open up to the pleasure of possibility?  It is time to DREAM BIG!

 

Join us for this deep dive yoga retreat to reset your mindset and make relaxation and grounding your new default. 

 

Get away from it all and book a deluxe or shared room or choose the “commuter option” and join us for yoga and dining only!
