Celebrate Your Spring: Awaken Balance & Embrace Lightness this Season
March 4, 2019
Inspired by the season, our Spring retreats evoke warmth, balance, inspiration and growth.
After the darkness of winter, the abundance of the water element in Spring can be experienced as heaviness, sadness and lethargy. We have the daily opportunity to notice where we feel this weight and make space for practices that connect us to the lightness and growth also present in spring. As rains soak the Earth and seeds begin to awaken in the soil, these waters offering a sense of new beginnings, inner potential and celebration. Observing how we feel and learning how to show up to our own ever-changing alchemy of balance is an art of presence, deep listening and self-love. Join us on retreat this Spring in cultivate balance and celebrate the sweet invitation for blossoming.
CALIFORNIA SPRING RETREAT // April 12-14, 2019
YOGASCAPES returns to Northern California with Sara Hess and Matt Champoux for a weekend retreat of deep, playful and therapeutic yoga surrounded by redwoods and gardens! Matt explains “being there to receive ‘nature’s medicine’. Just being in nature – walking from our beautiful cabins to the yoga space, to the dining hall, and through the gardens – allows our nervous systems to recalibrate as we breathe into our being is part of a whole web of energetic networks. Ecosystems are how nature orders herself at various echelons. For us, going into nature is like doing a hard reboot on a computer/device that’s acting glitchy: When we get back to our being-ness as part of nature, all of what/who we are functions better.”
