Yoga and Wine Retreat with Balance in Mind









Yoga and Wine some say the two don’t mix—we like to think of the two as a perfect pairing.  Wine a four letter word for relax, a four letter word for friendship~ what can happen over a shared glass, a shared class?

A yoga and wine retreat with balance in mind, the balance of the two–not overindulgence but mindfulness–enjoying at the appropriate time–taking it all in to be aware of the beauty, the bond, the communion–yoga.

If you have questions or comments about yoga and wine retreats please let us know–we would love to help you create and schedule your retreat today.

Until then, Cheers and Blessings ~

Sweat Lodge, Soul Collage-Experiences for the Mind, Body and Spirit

I am grateful to have experienced my first sweat lodge, interestingly enough the hours and days after this image kept coming to mind.  It occurred to me that it was an image I had created in Soul Collage a few years prior to the sweat lodge.  Perhaps better than words this image can express what I experienced in the lodge.

It was dark, then there was light, it was hot, then there was a cooling, a calming, there was smoke, then there was a glow, I was alone, then I was joined by others, it was quiet, then there were voices calling, guiding, singing, laughing.

Thank you to Sacred Groves: for providing the space and for bringing me into my vision, my image.

Thank you to New Moon Rising and Loretta Young for helping to awaken the energy within



Proprioception-Yoga Mind, Body, Spirit

Proprioception: The ability to sense stimuli arising within the body regarding position, motion, and equilibrium. Even if a person is blindfolded, he or she knows through proprioception if an arm is above the head or hanging by the side of the body. The sense of proprioception is disturbed in many neurological disorders. It can sometimes be improved through the use of sensory integration therapy, a type of specialized occupational therapy.

There is a lot of information available on this, today in Strength, Stretch and Balance yoga class we discussed Proprioception in relation to balance, ease of breath, movement through energy, a calm mind, body and Spirit.
