Balance and Bliss Day Retreat

“Balance is not a static state but is like a pendulum that swings from side to side. We all crave balance. But too often we think balance means perfection. Instead be grateful for your mistakes & regrets they give balance to your victories and celebrations.”
-Judith Hanson Lasater

Sarah and Tracy invite you to step away from from your everyday hectic schedule and step into the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest at The Hideaway in Monroe, Washington for a day of exploring what it means to have balance in your life and how to create more of it!
At this full-day retreat you’ll have the opportunity to dive deeper into your yoga practice and to cultivate more balance in your body, heart and mind while connecting with friends new and old.

The special day will include:

Balance
-Two yoga asana practices (morning and afternoon). These sessions will focus on balance and what that means on our mat and off of it. We will play with the concepts of steadiness/ease (sthiram/sukham), attachment/aversion to poses, striving/acceptance and much more. Plus you’ll get to try out plenty of fun balance poses along the way.
-One Pranayama (breath work) session to deepen the experience of balance in the mind.
-One Yoga Nidra session (yogic sleep). Through the restorative practice of Yoga Nidra we will experience the duality of various states of being, while gradually unwinding and relaxing all levels of body, breath, mind and consciousness.
