About the Retreat
The earth re-sets itself each autumn when the time “falls back” an hour, and we move toward less sunlight. This shift in the natural world is an invitation to also fall back into ourselves—to re-set, rest, look inside, replenish and slow down. This retreat is an opportunity to do just that—re-set after a busy summer and fall, rest, catch up with yourself and stock up for winter on an energetic level. This theme will be woven throughout the three asana practices, and it will be the focus of the restorative practice on Friday evening. Kirtan and meditation are also powerful tools for re-setting and replenishing. The two discussions of Tantric philosophy, which underpins the Anusara method, will help deepen the connection between the physical practices (asana, meditation and kirtan) and the Divine presence in our lives.
Although the asana practice will be mixed levels, participants should have some familiarity with yoga poses and not have any serious injuries. No prior knowledge of Tantric philosophy or Anusara’s Universal Principles of Alignment is needed.
