Serving Morrison, Conifer, and Evergreen Colorado
About once a month we delve deeply into a topic through a workshop. This is a great opportunity to learn more about a particular subject that interests you. The format allows time for questions and thorough practice. Occasionally, visiting Iyengar yoga teachers teach their specialties. Here are a few of the topics we’ve covered in past workshops: chanting, pelvic balancing, inversions, depression and anxiety, restoratives, detox and digestion, and opening the heart to name a few. Workshops are generally on Saturday mornings and are about two hours long. The cost is roughly $20-25.
March 7, 2020 10:00 am – Noon – Neck and Shoulders ($20). Learn specific poses to release tension and stress in the neck and shoulders. These poses can help boost circulation and improve blood flow in the brain. We will practice Resonance Breathing techniques to promote relaxation. Contact Diane to register.
Annual Yoga Retreat
October, 2020 – Date TBD
Once or twice a year, we retreat to Joyful Journey Hot Springs near Salida, Colorado. Here students can get away from their routine responsibilities, relax and immerse themselves in yoga practice in the midst of the beautiful San Juan Mountains. This popular retreat is a refreshing way to enjoy nature and deepen your yoga practice. We stay in heated yurts (though standard hotel rooms are available) and often grill dinner and have a bonfire. As the title suggests we retreat from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives and find the joy of yoga, pranayama, contemplation, and meditation. Of course, there’s plenty of laughter and soaking under the skies in the geothermal pools, plus time for massage or sauna.
The retreat includes an overnight stay in heated yurts, two days of soaking in the hot springs, four yoga classes, breakfast and potluck dinner. Cost is $135 if paid for by September 15. SPACE IS LIMITED. Register with Diane. The senior discount is 20% and a few scholarships are available.
