Anxiety and hypervigilance can be constant companions and derail our well-being. When we align the mind with the slower rhythms of the body and unwind, we can reconnect with our innate calm, embodied presence.

This retreat will offer Dharma teachings on understanding anxiety and cultivating self compassion. We will connect to the body through somatic movement, yoga postures, and breath work. Our practice will offer techniques to ground the nervous system and create a container of safety and support to allow us to meet all that arises. The yoga sessions will be both dynamic and nourishing for ease and resilience.

Although mats are available, you may also bring your own personal yoga mat. Please feel free to bring a yoga block and strap if you have them, as well as a journal for note taking.
