Yoga & Ayurveda Day-Retreat: Nourishing the Five Senses 

Saturday, December 2nd
10am – 5:30 pm
Marshall, NCWild and Luminous Heart Retreat Space

Topic: Nourishing and Balancing the Five Senses 

The end of autumn is an ideal time for slowing down and going inward with intention. This day-long retreat is centered on providing time to deepen awareness of our senses. According to the science of Ayurveda, the ancient medical science from India, one of the three main causes of disease is the misuse of the senses. This is especially relevant in this current age of speed and overload coupled with what is often a lack of consistency or absence of mindful sensory nourishment. During our retreat, we’ll hone our understanding of the relationship we have with our senses through the framework of Ayurveda. By exploring the powerful role that our ears, skin, eyes, mouth, and nose play in our abilities to connect with inner guidance, stillness, nature, our Selves, and each other, we’ll learn valuable tools for building a revised alliance to our overall health and longevity. 

This day-long, experiential retreat will consist of:

              • Yoga movement sessions
              • Pranayama (breath work) 
              • Sound immersion/deep relaxation (Yoga Nidra)
              • Meditation and/or Journaling 
              • Conversation/Group sharing

Our retreat will be held at a gorgeous property in Marshall, NC – about 15 minutes outside of downtown Marshall. Our time together will be spent mainly in a beautiful, large yurt. There is a wood stove in the yurt so we will be warm and comfortable in the space. We’ll enjoy a vegetarian pot-luck lunch in a separate kitchen structure which is a short walk from the yurt. There are hiking trails on the property that we can enjoy during our personal meditation time. This is an off-grid location, so be aware that that bathroom facilities are lovely but rustic (of the good ol bucket and sawdust outhouse variety). Please bring your own yoga mats and any props that you would like to use. Let me know if you need any of these things and I will be happy to provide them for you.
