NOORISH YOUR CONNECTION YOGA ADVENTURE RETREAT - june 14-17, 2019 & June 29-July 1, 2019
with Retreat Leaders Liv and Liz & Special Guest Catherine Bruwhiler
Location: Tofino, BC Canada
Realign with yourself. Connect with community. Be inspired by nature.
The word yoga means to yoke or create union - connection. We will spend this weekend in connection: With ourselves as we realign with our purpose and passion,with each-other and in deep connection with the wild and abundant Tofino coastline. We will be invigorated by the sea with surf lessons taught by Canadian Women's National Champion Catherine Bruwhiler. As a group we will explore Tofino's ancient cedar rainforests, paddle board in the bay, and enjoy the delicious abundance of food in the region. We will take time to work on ourselves, our mindset, dreams and goals.
Our yoga practice is a powerful tool to create connection, balance and harmony within our minds and bodies.
Each morning we will practice Vinyasa Yoga. Alignment and flow will ignite our inner fire, strength and focus to prepare us for each day.
In the evening we will practice Yin, Restorative and Nidra Yoga. Our evening practice invites us to embrace softness, self care and relaxation. When we embody gentle stillness in our practice we cultivate our own sense of balance, equanimity and a deep state of wellbeing.
Yoga practice will be led by retreat guest leader Carly.
