WHIDBEY | SPRING BALANCING RETREAT

GREENBANK, WHIDBEY ISLAND
THE YOGA LODGE

MARCH 8 - 10, 2019

Shift into Spring by opening the hips and stimulating the organs associated with the season. The Liver is our largest internal organ, which regulates blood and the gallbladder processes fats.  By opening these meridians, we embody balance and shed stagnant energy.  Anger is an emotion associated with the Liver and is often stored in the hips.  Releasing excess tension allows us to move forward with freedom. 

Revive and release with inclusive/all levels Vinyasa + Yin Yoga. Vinyasa yoga rides the rhythm of breath, transforming movement into conscious meditation. Yin yoga postures are supported with props and held for 2-5 minutes which allows the remodeling of connective tissue and the opening of meridians. Balancing contraction and release aids sleep, supports autonomic functions, and sends calming waves through the nervous system.

Feel the richness of movement, dine on organic Ayurvedic foods, sauna, spend time in the forest.  No matter what your experience is with Yoga, Jennifer will tailor the offerings to support and challenge everyone on the retreat.
