Please join us on Sunday, November 19th for a day-long meditation and yoga retreat to re-boot your Self-Love practice and to remember how it feels to slow down, set aside the worldly to-do list, and to rest in self-care.
Our day together will be held in the stillness and splendor of Red Butte Gardens where nature reminds us of the changing seasons and the beauty of simply being present to witness our own transitions + natural rhythms, together, in community. I will guide you through an afternoon of reflection, weaving together meditation and experiential mindfulness practices to support your health and wellness. I am so excited to share with you my own daily practices that have supported me over the years to treat myself with compassion and finding peace and ease in the journey. My beautiful friend, Nikki Breedlove, will guide you in an extended yoga practice that is suitable for all levels of practice. Nikki’s approach to yoga is gentle, wise and through a sequence of breath and asana practices she guides you back to yourself, to the natural rhythm of your life.
