Join Susan Searle at SunWater Spa for a special Sunday evening of yin yoga and crystal singing bowl meditation by candlelight.

 

Prepare for your week with a special Sunday afternoon workshop. Practice will begin with yin yoga, a deep, quiet, and contemplative practice of awareness and stillness where you will explore the subtler layers of the body and breath. Yin postures are each held for three to five minutes with a focus on the connective tissues of the hips, thighs, pelvis, and lower spine. Then, you will move into a deep guided meditation supported by quartz crystal singing bowls. The rich, textural sounds created by the singing bowls resonate hypnotically throughout the space, creating healing tones and harmonious sensations. Come experience the stress-releasing and peace-inducing benefits of yin yoga and vibrational healing.

Please bring a journal and personal snack for the retreat. If you plan on soaking, also bring a bathing suit and toiletries.

 

One of the most important seasonal transitions is from winter to spring. From the quiet solitude and dreamy depths of contemplative winter, spring blossoms open fresh perspectives, new ideas, increased vitality, creative life planning, and inspired action.

 

As women, we are gifted the wisdom and beauty of the seasons to review and renew our commitment to health and our heart’s deepest desire to live a life we truly love.

 

During this special retreat, you will…

 

• Tap into the transformative power of seasonal self-care and intention setting, growing your health and dreams steadily from month to month.
• Learn how to integrate sacred self-care strategies into your daily life.
• Let go of old stories and limiting beliefs to rekindle your self-confidence.
• Move and enjoy your body through women’s yoga, guided relaxation, introspection, and journaling.
• Share time with an awesome group of women dedicated to self-care, personal growth, and strategic-life planning.
• Be soothed and pampered with essential oils, as well as a special gift from Beth.
• Leave refreshed, renewed, and with a personal Spring wellness plan.

 

Beth McCarthy (E-RYT 500) is a Certified Yoga Therapist, Wellness Chef, and Awakening Joy for Women’s Health Coach. To learn more about Beth, her services, and women’s programs, visit healingthroughyoga.net

Take time for an immersive, self-care experience to replenish and bring relaxation to all levels of your being.

 

Join ERYT 500 Marin McCallen for a combination of mudra, mantra, pranayama, meditation, intention setting, gentle and restorative yoga, as well as deeply rejuvenating yoga nidra. While in this nourishing and relaxing three-hour workshop, you will practice timeless traditions to address balance and vitality within your whole self.

 

The practice of yoga nidra, a guided meditation in Savasana, has many benefits, including increased serotonin and decreased cortisol and adrenaline in the body. This helps to counteract the effects of stress, anxiety, and even trauma. It is a practice that brings balance to every system of the body, all while you simply relax into your awareness.

 

During this afternoon workshop, each of your layers will be nurtured by taking you progressively deeper into calm, peace, balance, and relaxation. Release layers of tension and stress, replenish your own vitality, and experience your radiant, true self.

 

*This workshop is appropriate for all levels and is good for three CE hours
