When: October 20-22, 2017
Instructor: Rixie Dennison
Where: Sevenoaks Retreat Center
I was struck by a post by Elizabeth Gilbert (see below) recently and read it out loud to the women who attended my Yoga for Healthy Aging retreat this past March. “Be Kind to Your Future Self.” On my way home, the theme our Fall Retreat became clear!! We will focus on how to be kinder to ourselves RIGHT NOW … after all …
“But what about the person you will become in a week? Or a month? Or a year? What about that innocent stranger? What did she ever do that was so wrong? What if you were able to regard your future self as a deserving visitor worthy of affection and sympathy? What if every single day you tried to think of one nice gift you could offer her—something that might make her feel welcome and safe and loved when she finally shows up?”
We will explore essential Yoga practices correlated to increased healthy life span. The practices include static, dynamic, and restorative poses focused on flexibility, agility, balance and strength. There will be creative time, nap time, time to walk on the beautiful property of Sevenoaks Retreat Center.
This retreat is appropriate for anyone who’s looking to take their yoga with them through many years ahead. Beginners are very welcome.
INCLUDES TWO NIGHTS LODGING, 5 FABULOUS MEALS, 5 YOGA CLASSES, MEDITATION, YOGA NIDRA, CHANTING, CREATIVITY, FIRE CIRCLE, PEACEFUL, HEALING ENVIRONMENT, COMMUNITY –TIME FOR REST AND REFLECTION.
Retreat is held on the beautiful property of Sevenoaks Retreat Center – Madison, Virginia — Just 1 ½ hours from Northern Virginia.
