Five Elements Harmony Yoga Retreat

Registration closed.

Five Elements Harmony Yoga Retreat will help balance your energy and find deeper layers of harmony within your body and the environment. Through the Five Elements, you gently awaken your healing switch. We explore Yoga Postures (Asanas), Breathing Techniques (Pranayama) Meditation and Guided Visualization, Essential Oils, Intentions and Affirmations, Mantras (mind freeing sentences) and Mudras (yoga with the hands), Journaling and Creative Activities to harmonize the Elements. We incorporate the Chakras with the Elements, and each practice will be created to highlight every element. You will become aware of how you might need an Earth practice to help you ground vs. a Fire flow to increase your transformational power.

Healing begins with Awareness. 

“All healing comes from within oneself~We can help each other turn on one's own healing switch, but the healing capacity is within oneself.” 

Self-care is the new health care. You can only heal what you feel so keep tuning in with Awareness for when you get out of tune.

Your participation and support helps to sustain us for future groups at Still Waters. Thank you.
