Your weekend retreat includes four uniquely themed yoga classes. If weather permits, we may hold the classes outdoors in order to fully enjoy this beautiful location. You will participate in a powerful workshop called The Essential You. Developed by Grace, it is designed to inspire you to live to your fullest potential, outlining steps that will help you connect to your essence. Remember…you cannot fail at being you.
We’ve also planned an afternoon “mindful hike” to the summit of West Rattlesnake Mountain enjoying beauty and fresh air-the perfect outing. During your stay, you will be able to enjoy an indoor fireplace and an outdoor hot tub for a total mind-body restoration. Only when you take care of your “self,” can you give with abundance. This may become your sacred destination. As we watch leaves fluttering to the ground in the fall, we are reminded that nature’s cycles are mirrored in our lives. Autumn is a time for letting go and releasing things which no longer serves us.
Weekend Workshops & Excursion :
The Essential You: 7 Key Steps to Being True. In this workshop we will review and discuss seven essential steps to re-connecting with your true self, which is necessary for living life, from a place of authenticity. It is a journey of self-discovery, self-acceptance and self-love. Be true to yourself and you will ring true to the world. Everyone will receive a journal and a Conscious Ink temporary tattoo with a hidden message especially for you. This workshop is an interactive lecture with stretching and breathing breaks.
The Spirit of Yoga: This workshop is designed to bring more spirituality into your practice. Morning is the perfect time to connect with spirit through prayer, meditation and yoga. In this class, we will combine these elements, plus we will introduce Yoga Mudras. Mudras are symbolic gestures often practiced with the hands and fingers. They facilitate the flow of energy in the subtle body and enhance one’s journey within. We will discuss how to bring these beautiful hand gestures into our practice, to deepen our connection with self and spirit. (90min)
West Rattlesnake Mindful Hike:
Sounds deadly, but it’s not! The trail level is graded easy to moderate. The trail is a 25 minute ride from the DFLY studio. The hike is 30 minute to the summit of West Rattlesnake Mountain, and offers fantastic views of Squam Lake and its many islands at the foot of the mountain. We will review the practice of “mindfulness” and use it on our hike to the top. Weather permitting, we will pause for a 30 minute guided meditation. It’s an opportunity to take in the breathtaking views and recharge our spirits with positive energy from this inspiring location.
