About us

IDEAL FOR: All levels including beginners

This retreat, designed specifically for veterans and their spouses or partners, teaches powerful mind-body practices that strengthen resilience, bring peace of mind, and relieve traumatic symptoms.

A mindful, embodied yoga practice can provide relief from symptoms and help veterans develop supportive skills for everyday life. In this retreat, participants will learn practical yoga and mindfulness-based tools that decrease the stress, anxiety, and sleep problems that many returning veterans experience. The retreat will employ Mindful Yoga Therapy, an empirically-informed, clinically-tested program comprising five practices: pranayama (breathing), asana (postures connected with breath), yoga nidra, meditation, and gratitude. Each practice is a tool veterans can use to cope with post-traumatic stress. Together, they form a comprehensive system — or toolbox — that will carry veterans into a life of strength and resilience.

Anyone who has served in the military or is currently serving is most welcome to attend this retreat. Spouses and partners of veterans are also welcome to join us.

Tuition: $25, includes accommodations.

Copper Beech institute has received generous funding to help offset the cost of this retreat. Attendees are welcomed but not required to make an additional free-will offering to support our outreach bringing mindfulness practices to at-risk children, the homeless and incarnated communities.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To reconnect with my inner self, found ground through the movement of my body and breath. Awake. Jane
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
