Yoga & Breema Retreat

April 17-19

From Dave and Alana: "Join us in exploring the beauty of comfortable, unhurried movement, sacred sound and the quiet that comes with the shared practice of these arts. At the heart of this retreat is our love for each other and our dedication to these practices, which we enter into daily as both students and teachers. Learn practical and essentially-satisfying approaches to living more fully in the world."

This retreat includes all of your vegetarian, mostly organic meals, yoga classes including a taste of chanting, Breema partner bodywork and Self-Breema exercises, body-centered meditation and a 20 minute Breema treatment with Dave. (Additional treatments may be added, time-allowing. Please contact us to schedule).
