WHIDBEY | WINTER BALANCING RETREAT

GREENBANK, WHIDBEY ISLAND
THE YOGA LODGE

JANUARY 11 - 13, 2019

Embody the dark, cool, reflective traits of winter through the practice of Yin + Vinyasa Yoga. Longer nights and colder days are meant to slow us down and allow deeper inner work, but holiday travel, nutrition, and schedules aren’t always conducive to the healing nature of the season. Since water is Winter’s dominant element, we’ll stimulate meridians associated with the kidneys and urinary bladder to support the body’s ability cleanse and move fluidly through life’s waves.

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.

Unplug and reconnect through movement, Ayurvedic foods, sauna sweats, and time in nature. No matter what your experience is with Yoga, Jennifer will tailor the offerings to support and challenge everyone.
