About This Event
Join us in the sacred healing waters of Sierra Hot Springs, finding freedom in our bodies and love in our hearts through a variety of yogic modalities, psychological inquiry and personal exploration.
Believe it or not, we are the love that we seek. Unfortunately, much of this love has been covered up and hidden to us. Over time we have been hurt, seen dreams dissolve and felt the pain of loss, creating the fear of getting hurt again. The barriers we have erected to protect ourselves have left us closed down and cut of from our bodies and hearts--the ultimate sources of intimacy and connection. As a result, love can seem like an illusive force.
In this weekend retreat, we'll come back to love in the majestic Sierraville hot springs. On the edge of Tahoe National forest, the sacred healing pools, relaxing sauna and tranquillity of the mountains will provide the perfect escape from the pressures of the world to focus on developing qualities of the heart.
The embodied practices of vinyasa, yin and partner yoga will release the tension and blockages that prevent love and joy to flow through you. Through guided Thai massage (assisted yoga therapy) we will explore the practice of loving-kindness, acceptance and connection with another. Group discussions, lectures and exercises will help breakthrough your own unique challenges in living a life of love.

"This retreat was amazing, I loved every part of it. It began with an introduction and intention setting as to why we decided to embark on a yoga retreat and then followed with a yin yang yoga. The next morning, we had a picturesque meditation on the mountain, followed by a yoga class with a great physical sequence along with quotes of wisdom and intention setting during the class. Our discussion sessions about the power of love were amazing as well, featuring introspective questions and an opportunity for partner and group exercises to allow for reflection and clarification of experiences and meaning of life. I feel very encouraged, very inspired to live the life I want, and show love for myself and others. This is s great retreat for anyone looking for transformation, new insights, or inspiration among other things. Great balance of activities that are creative and rejuvenating!"
