This special holiday retreat will introduce mindfulness through yoga techniques and mindfulness meditation. Join together in community to rest into the bounty of the season and enrich your sense of connection with the world.
The yoga asana will be basic, accessible, and focused on the cultivation of mindfulness. Yogic breathing practices will be introduced. Newcomers will have the opportunity to learn about mindfulness, and experienced practitioners will have the opportunity to explore deepening practice. Come prepared to explore the present moment!

Financial assistance is available for all Spirit Rock residential retreats.

Scholarship funding is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Scholarships are budgeted per retreat and because they are in high demand, can run out quickly. We encourage you to register for a retreat as close as possible to the registration opening date (lotteries are an exception).
Also, please remember that the cost above is priced as a sliding scale. Please consider paying at the highest level of the sliding scale that you can afford.
