1-1:30pm Journaling, Q&A or Group Work
1:30-3pm Yin Yoga and/or Somatic Movement
Our bodies are able to “remember” or “store” emotions. Because our fascia (connective tissues) makes up such a large part of our physical being, it is also the primary source for storing our emotions. In long held Yin Yoga postures, we will surrender into areas of the body that are holding onto stories and tensions that no longer serve. Breathe into those spaces. Let the tensions melt into ease and spaciousness.
ou can think of Somatic Movement as a total freedom practice. Moving from the inside out. In these practices we will move from different body systems such as the skin, bone, fluids and cells. 

* Some practices will include live music by world renowned musicians.
* Expect a special opening ritual on our first day together and a closing ritual on our final day.
* Remember, everyone is welcome to this immersion. No matter how little or much you’ve moved your body or rested your mind over these last couple of years. 😉

What are the practices and how do they work?

Somatics is a term for any practice that uses the mind-body connection to help you look inside yourself and pay attention to what your body tells you about areas of pain, discomfort, or imbalance. They let you learn more about how you keep your memories in your body and how you can let them go. You can use this knowledge, along with natural movement and touch, to help you get better and stay healthy, somatic experts say. 

Yoga Nidra
Yoga Nidra is an ancient sleep-based meditation technique that has the power to take you to the innermost, deepest levels of relaxation where your whole body and being is permeated by peace of mind and profound stillness. It unlocks the mystical, integrative powers of the subconscious, as well as your higher centers of consciousness, to effortlessly erase your most tenacious, self-destructive habits and behavior patterns. It is said by yogis that 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra is as restorative as three hours of sleep.

Hatha Yoga is designed to balance our inner lunar and solar energies. When these two are in balance the body enters an optimal state of energy flow that puts us in the best position to experience optimal health. When these two “ha” (sun) and “tha” (moon) are in balance our central channel opens and flows. This is the basis for physical health and the foundation for the inward journey home to Source.

Hatha Yoga includes deliberately active and receptive poses. You dynamically do the pose,  entering consciously and willfully. Then you pause and let go, feeling the energetic effects of what you just created. When these two come into balance through the “ha” (dynamic action) and tha (deep relaxation) the energy begins to drop us into deeper and deeper states of meditation. Hatha Yoga is such a powerful practice for getting our health and our spirituality in alignment.

Yin yoga focuses on the fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones, which are all deep connective tissues. It’s slower and more contemplative, allowing you to focus within and tune into your thoughts as well as your physical feelings. Yin yoga helps you stretch and lengthen those rarely-used tissues while also teaching you how to breathe through discomfort and sit with your thoughts because you’re holding poses for longer periods of time than you would in other traditional styles of yoga. 

Yin yoga is based on ancient Chinese philosophies and Taoist principles that believe there are Qi (energy) pathways that run through our bodies. We open up any blockages and allow the energy to flow freely by stretching and deepening into poses.
