Give yourself permission to make your practice your own, releasing judgement to explore sustainable and adaptable practices that nourish and support you.

In these mini-retreats, flow between stillness and movement with yoga and guided meditation. You’ll learn a variety of practices to accommodate your needs for self-care and well-being, and you’ll receive support in integrating these practices into your life according to what serves you in each moment.

We are committed to making these retreats accessible to EVERY body!

Yoga practices will incorporate choices and modifications to be accessible for all bodies. Chairs and props will be provided. Meditation will be presented and guided in a way that is appropriate for beginners as well as experienced practitioners. Please get in touch with Katie if you have questions about whether these retreats will be beneficial for you.

While each retreat is an independent unit, regular practice allows you to learn practices, take time to integrate, and then return to deepen your experiencing.
