Attuning to the Seasons with with Ayurveda & Yin – Melina Meza

September 8-12, 2019
Breitenbush Hot Springs, Oregon

As we are interconnected with Mother Nature, we can more powerfully keep in tune with ourselves by attuning to her seasonal rhythms. In this unique four-day program, we’ll explore numerous ways to sequence our wellness practice with the seasons, including a dedicated focus upon Yin Yoga and Ayurveda.

Through muscle relaxation and release of tension, breath awareness and visualizations, Yin Yoga not only inspires the circulation of life force energy (prana) throughout the body but also instills an attitude that allows you to more fully prepare for meditation and life’s stressors. Ayurveda, yoga’s sister science and one of the world’s oldest systems of healing, provides us with a rich repository of distilled wisdom that inspires our journey towards optimal well-being.

In addition to our Yin Yoga practice and Ayurvedic studies, this holistic program also includes forest bathing, river meditations, hiking, and soaking under the stars to reconnect to your true nature. You’ll emerge from this retreat with self-knowledge and practical wisdom that will deepen your practice both on and off the mat.
