Relax and unwind with a weekend of movement and discovery, dedicated to women! Learn about yoga’s sister-science, Ayurveda, and its three elements: Earth, Fire and Air. Each session will be focused on an individual element, beginning with activity to represent that element and connect to the physical body, and ending with led discussions to connect with mind and spirit. Use this weekend to dive deeper into understanding the self, how to find balance of masculine/feminine within yourself, learn how to put self-care as a priority, and connect with other women to create a powerful support system.
