"Our Western society is oriented only in the direction of eliciting the fight-or-flight response.  Unlike the fight-or-flight response, which is repeatedly brought forth as a response to our difficult everyday situations and is elicited without conscious effort, the Relaxation Response can be evoked only if time is set aside and a conscious effort is made." Dr. Herbert Benson

Beneath the surface of everyday life experiences there is profound state of balance.  To reach this state of balance, relaxation is an essential tool. 

During the retreat the daily practices of yoga and Yoga Nidra offered restores a sense of inner harmony, unloads the burdens and distractions of the mind and reconnects us to the more subtle layers of ourselves. 

Yoga Nidra is a conscious practice of relaxation in the pose of shavasana.  The moment you make a conscious decision to relax, the body starts secreting healthy positive hormones and wholesome messages influencing every aspects of your body, mind and the whole personality.

Embracing Change and Transformation

21 - 23 Oct     $350 Book Here
22 - 23 Oct     $250 Book Here

In order to transform negative to positive, the first step, as always, is self-observation.

When we have developed the skill to see some of our patterns of thought that are disruptive to us and our lives and learn to observe them with a more even mind, it becomes a logical step to look for ways to strategically diminish the intensity and impact of this flawed thinking in our lives.

It means being open to changing the way we think.

Being silent is an opportunity to be with yourself, to be still, and to experience enhanced connection with yourself and your surroundings.
