You & theElements

AN EMPOWERING WEEKEND RETREAT

 

FRIDAY-SUNDAY, APRIL 12-14, 2024

 

Come experience your magic in the White Mountains of New Hampshire for a 2-night/3-day retreat full of connection, nature, learning, self-discovery, play, and relaxation. You will experience the gentle, profound practice of Energy Medicine Yoga, spend time in the great outdoors, and enjoy the supportive company of new friends. Enjoy being, connecting, and learning in cozy luxury and wild nature.

 

Imagine a weekend away that looks like...

You arrive on Friday evening with hopeful uncertainty and curiosity.

You receive a nourishing, home-cooked meal, meet your new friends, and settle in with some relaxing yoga & sound meditation before bed.

You wake up gently with the Saturday morning sun to an Energy Medicine Yoga session that centers and energizes you.

You prepare for a day in New Hampshire's beautiful & wild, nature, exploring and learning about the elements, and how they correspond to your emotional wellbeing. The evening kicks off with yummy, seasonally appropriate dinner, a deep yoga practice, and outdoor fire ceremony (& dessert of course!). 

After a restful sleep, you join the group for a final Energy Medicine Yoga session before laughing over another homemade breakfast.

You have the sense you don't want to leave quite yet, and find yourself in a beautiful closing ceremony that prepares you to retain the bonds created in community and the new deepened bond with yourSelf. 

You leave Sunday feeling alive, energized, grounded, and like you belong here in this body and in this community. You have a deeper understanding of who you are and how you fit into this beautiful world.

Does this sound like your kind of weekend?

PLAY & CONNECT WITH THE 5 ELEMENTS water~wood~fire~earth~metal (1).png
What does "You & the Elements" Mean?

 

Connect to yourself through the wisdom and movement of the 5 elements taught in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Energy Medicine Yoga. The elements correspond to 10 major emotions like courage, fear, anger, joy, and grief. They help us to see where we are out of balance emotionally and physically. We can restore harmony to each element as it is expressed in our bodies and lives by working with the emotion and natural world. Nourish your physical body with delicious foods and strength building movement. Integrate the physical and the unseen energy around you through movement & intentional time in nature. Leave the weekend feeling empowered, lighter, grounded, and replenished. 

 

Come as you are. You can bring an experience to process or simply arrive, curious what will show up for you. Experience the full arc of emotions with gratitude as your foundation.
