Full Day Yoga Retreat Description
Centering and Invocation
We begin the retreats by chanting a Mantra connected to the theme planet to center and open to receive the powerful recalibration of energy that happens during the day.
You will receive a short introduction regarding the subject of the retreat followed by an extended yoga practice. In this morning practice you will go slower and deeper than ordinary yoga classes with time to pause, ask questions, receive more adjustments and access partner work to create a clearer insight into how the body and subtler levels of energies integrate as new dimensions of your Being are revealed. The 1/2 day yoga practice will be shortened quite a bit.
New dimensions of awakening are common as consciousness is awakened through the power of self-inquiry through insight and yogic techniques. This energy rises and is refined into a more expanded energy that is a great healing force for all the systems and energy pathways of your body mind and spirit. These whole day retreats give us a chance to get in touch with our own dharma which means that which flows naturally. The process of Self-realization allowing this process to happen so we can more fully express the innate talents and gifts to help the world.
The Sattvic (Pure) Vegetarian Feast
Nirgunanvathi cooks up the most amazing pure, from the garden vegetarian lunch which is delivered right to Lake Center Yoga. In this way, you never have to leave the energy field of the retreat and the experience you are in the process of creating, to get in your car and drive to a restaurant for a lower vibration meal.
We will look into our individual horoscopes and have some time for questions and answers. We then will watch a discourse from other astrologers related to the subject matter. This a great time for deeper reflection into yourself.
Afternoon Yoga Practice
After the discourse time permitting we will add some yoga asana\’s to prepare us to sit for the final practices and self discovery techniques. add some hip opening, twisting and restorative type poses followed by some specific practices geared toward the subject matter. This is such a great opportunity to learn some simple but very effective techniques to guide us to be more in harmony with our natural energies that on a deeper level connects us the the heavenly bodies and the universal energy. You will get handouts or emails after the retreats to give you guidance on how to have a continued practice of awakening and study.
The final practices will bring the whole day together and take you to a deep space inside that can be brought with you back into ordinary type life. This magical day is followed by a delicious treat. You will float home completely transformed on so many levels!
Benefits of the Yoga Retreat Day
If a full day of yoga seems daunting or long to you, or you are thinking you just need to “rest” on your Sunday off to recharge yourself, don’t worry. It is not a full day of asana yoga practice only, this is a time to do some asana practice but the emphasis is on deeper levels than you can normally go to in normal yoga home practice or classes. These retreats are designed to balance and energize you every step of the way in a way that just relaxing cannot.

You will take away an experience of higher energy and more clarity that will alter and enhance everything in your life. Warning: You may get hooked!
