MAY 2022 TAOS SELF-CARE AND RELAXATION WEEKEND RETREAT
Time & Location
About The Event
ABOUT THE RETREAT
We are all looking for ways to cope with stress in nurturing, intuitive, thoughtful ways. In this retreat, we will: discuss ways to reduce stress in our daily lives; practice radical self-care to build up our emotional reserves; and hold space for one another. During this retreat, we will come together to practice relaxing yoga, enjoy guided meditation, share healthy nourishing meals, and take time out to relax, create, and just be. We'll also have a special guest storyteller, Jason, who is a member of the Taos Pueblo.
Registration ranges from $595 to $795, depending on room type and when you register.
During this retreat, we will gather at the beautiful Blue Sky Retreat and Bed & Breakfast at the historic San Geronimo Lodge (adjacent to historic and enchanting downtown Taos, New Mexico) to practice restorative and vinyasa yoga, enjoy guided meditation, share healthy nourishing meals, and take time out to relax, create, and just be. Together, we’ll nourish our bodies with healthy home cooked meals, herbal teas, yoga, and plenty of free time to unwind. And we’ll nourish our minds and spirits with guided meditation, sharing circles, and unplugging from the busy-ness of the world. There will be a nice balance of learning, movement, and quiet time. During your free time, you can take time alone for yourself, avail yourself of Blue Sky’s labyrinth and hot tub.
