From Liberation to Love
Yoga practice is a vehicle to liberate ourselves from the bonds that restrict our capacity to experience love. In this retreat we will explore what love is and how yoga can assist in removing the obstacles to giving and receiving love. We will engage in physical practices, breathing, and meditation, along with discussion, in a beautiful place that is conducive to self exploration. This retreat provides an opportunity to bond, share, and learn with others while supported by the practice of yoga.
For the evening program please bring a poem, a song or something else to share that is related to love.
