June 7-9, 2019 - Manifest Light Retreat with Leigh Stewart, Founder – Community Yoga School

with a container to manifest the fire within

Summer is the season for transformation.
It stokes our inner fire.
Feeling inspired to share your gifts with the world?
Call in the summer solstice among the high Sierra pine flats of Tahoe National Forest. Channel pitta’s summer season and the fluid quality of water to manifest the outward expression of the ideas and thoughts you’ve been cultivating throughout winter and spring.

This retreat calls on the ancient practices of Ayurvedic-infused yoga, seasonally selected herbs and the healing waters of Sierra Hot Springs to manifest light as you make your way into the season of personal expansion.

In the Ayurvedic tradition, the pitta or summer season is one of personal power ignited by fueling the fires within our core to light the path for our heart’s callings. It is the season where we not only imagine transformation but harness the power and drive to enact it. 

Whether you are seeking acute or general life changes, you will come away with holistic practices from the Ayurvedic, Western Herbal and yogic modalities to support and direct your path toward transformation. 

Our Weekend Includes:

  • Opening tea with seasonally harvested blends
  • Two two-hour Ayurvedic Flow yoga workshops to start off each morning
  • Two two-hour yin & restorative yoga workshops with hot stones
  • Herbal integration through aromatherapy, abhyanga and tisanes
  • Thai-massage-based assists throughout all movement practices
  • Six local, organic meals prepared by on-site chefs (dietary needs accommodated upon request)
  • Ayurvedic self-care for skin workshop with Sierra-native plants
  • Handcrafted seasonal teas and tonics to be enjoyed throughout the weekend
  • Nourishing farm-to-table fruit and pitta-balancing snacks
  • Time to unwind and refresh in Sierraville’s hot springs and cold plunges across the property
  • Hiking trails throughout the Sierra pine forests
  • Bodywork & massage available on-site

You’ll cultivate:

Meditation practices and tools to integrate yoga-based movement into a home practice
Knowledge of Sierra herbs and their medicinal applications
Ayurvedic knowledge to balance the season of summer through yoga, diet and lifestyle
A renewed connection to the elements of earth and water amid the Sierra landscape
A spirited community of yogis & yoginis on our intimate retreat

June 14-16, 2019 - Radical Love Shift - Workshop for Women - 9th Annual, The Work of Byron Katie & Heart Meditation & Movement & Ritual With Helena Montelius

Are you longing for more clarity and flow in your current relationship? Sitting in the fire of a divorce or betrayal? Longing to meet “the one?” Desiring to deepen your self love? 
This weekend is for you! In an intimate, supportive circle of sisters we question the painful love stories and underlying beliefs that hold us back in these areas.

We re-commit to our own truth and shift into the greatest love affair of all; with existence itself and your own inner heart essence.

The Work is a profound, yet simple, form of inquiry for dissolving limiting beliefs and healing any past or current relationship stress. You will learn the basics of this yoga for the mind and be able to use it at home after the workshop. The Work leaves you more centered, clear, open and in touch with your own truth. Meditation, sharing, supportive sisterhood and plenty of time for soaking and self-refection. 

“Helena’s clear and compassionate guidance helped me shift some deeply held beliefs. I feel so much lighter! So grateful!”

Tuition: $180 Early bird (before May 14) and repeat sisters. $210 includes all workshop sessions and materiel’s, Meditation CD’s, follow-up online meeting. Lodging and food not included.

August 22-25, 2019 - Trauma 2 Satori Weekend Retreat with Jeffrey Tidrick, LMT, SEP

Join us at beautiful Sierra Hot Springs in Northern California for this highly experiential deep-dive. The intention of this retreat is to build resilience, resolve trauma, and directly experience the deepest “Self”.

While the techniques we’ll be using are based on principles of Somatic Experiencing® and mindfulness, this retreat can benefit anyone interested in developing more self-awareness, vitality, and capacity for handling the inevitable stresses of day-to day life.

The value you’ll receive is to:

 

-Be able to track inner- body sensations, which is a key to trauma healing.

-Unlock and reclaim energy wasted in unconscious and outdated fight, flight, and freeze responses.

-Build greater capacity for handling chaotic and stressful situations.

-Increase connection with self and others by practicing deep presence while communicating and listening.

-Have the possibility of directly experiencing the transcendent “Self” which is vibrant and whole, and exists beyond time and trauma.
