You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
– Mary oliver
Mark your calendars: This March 3-5, play in the snow, soak in hot springs, and read by the heat of a wood fire stove on this ultimate winter weekend getaway at Sierra Hot Springs with Abby Tucker, a dedicated yoga student, teacher, and lover of life.
We are so excited to invite you to our Winter Yoga Retreat in March. Every year, we fall in love with Sierra Hot Springs and can’t wait to share this magical place with you in the wintertime. Abby will warm us up with daily yoga classes by the wood fire stove and the hot springs will continue to heat our bodies and rejuvenate our souls.
This trip is open to all levels of yoga experience, all ages, families, couples, friends and solo travelers. Most of the food will be vegetarian and we can accommodate gluten free, dairy free and other food requests. Accommodations are rustic but comfortable and provide the perfect home for a yoga retreat in nature.
Abby Tucker is a dedicated yoga student and teacher, who is known for integrating the fullness of yoga practice – asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra, mudra and mythology – into her classes for more than a decade. Abby’s classes offer precision biomechanics within a variety of contexts, including strength and stamina-building; slow empowered flow, or workshop-style depth. Often described as a “teacher’s teacher,” Abby’s classes both nourish and empower students at every level of practice, from raw beginner to experienced teachers. Abby’s chief mission in teaching is to help students unveil their internal wisdom and power and to educate them into the depth of practice so that it is sustainable over time. She often says to her students, “What I’m interested in is teaching you so well that you no longer need me as a teacher.”
*Registration for private single/shared rooms ends 5 pm 2/5/16.*
Sierra Hot Springs is a non-profit retreat and workshop center located at the cusp of enchanted forest and beautiful alpine valley. Here, it is impossible to resist the overwhelming sense of tranquility. The natural spring water is as smooth as silk, and the pools are a true experience. For centuries, Native Americans have regarded this land as a sacred healing place. Now we invite you to discover its incredible powers for yourself.
Accommodations is in both the Main Lodge and Globe Room (a 15/20 min walk from the pools and main lodge). Registration at the Globe Hotel is open since private rooms in the Main Lodge are full. This year, the dorms are all female. The pools are clothing optional, so guests can individually decide what is most comfortable for them. There is wifi in the Main Lodge and Globe Hotel, but we suggest disconnecting as much as possible to soak up the serene surroundings.
