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.
The Main Lodge is full. Registration is now open at the Sierra Hot Springs Globe Hotel located a short drive or 20 min walk (1 mile) from the Main Lodge.
Abby Tucker is a beloved teacher, priestess and mystic, who is known for integrating her two paths — the practices of yoga — asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra, mudra and mythology – with mystical earth-based and gnostic wisdom. Abby’s classes offer dynamic biomechanics—gleaned from nearly 20 years of practice and study– 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 advanced practitioner. 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 they can thrive in practice and life for the long-term.
Abby spent much of her childhood in a mystical field behind her home in Tennessee. It was there that she first learned that all of nature—including our own human nature—had a pulse, a rhythm and a cycle. She became enchanted by yoga at the age of 10, and began exploring Eastern religions and philosophies in high school and college. It was in 1998 that she finally came to the practices of yoga and, finding her entire life transformed by its alchemy, she left her full-time career in public relations and in 1999 turned her life over to yoga, becoming a full-time yoga student for the next four years. She began teaching in 2002, earned her Anusara certification in 2005, and now holds an E-RYT 500 with the Yoga Alliance.
In 2012, Abby heeded the call of the sacred work of the priestess. She formally entered these practices in 2014 and is now an initiated priestess of the mysteries of Avalon through the lineage of Awakening Avalon. The Sovereign Path is the integration of Abby’s yoga studies and her mystical practices.
*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.
