Playing Between the Opposites – Independence and Interdependence with Melina Meza & Baxter Bell
June 30-July 7, 2018
Yoga practices and philosophy blended with the Ayurvedic system offer a valuable lens through which to play between seemingly disparate ideas: yin and yang, form and no-form, success and failure, goals and no-goals, tamas and rajas, hot and cold, and on and on! Join Melina Meza and Baxter Bell, MD, for this July 4th-week yoga retreat to celebrate our independence and interdependence as we explore the interplay of opposites.
Breitenbush Summer Immersion Retreat
With Melina Meza & Chiara Guerrieri
Breitenbush Hot Springs, Oregon
July 8-13, 2018
As students, we are always learning, filling our wells and receiving deeper insights through continued practice and study. As teachers, continued study allows us to expand our repertoire and more fully develop our voices and yogic lifestyles. As practitioners, we seek a sangha, or community, with whom we can share and celebrate our journey. Our goal this week is to provide a rich program and inclusive community to help you prosper – in your practice, studies and your career as a yoga teacher.
In this spirit, Breitenbush Summer Immersion Retreat will provide space for meaningful conversations, classes in art of teaching and sequencing, physical and energetic anatomy, non-violent communication, business empowerment skills, Yin Yoga, Ayurveda and more.

This retreat will allow you to determine your natural constitution, or “dosha”, and offer helpful tools to develop greater strength, flexibility, brain health and nutrition. These techniques will bring more vitality and greater happiness at any age.
