Expanding Your Comfort Zone: A Self-Care Yoga & Meditation Retreat with Ali Alexander & Debra Black
Join Ali Alexander and Debra Black for a nourishing weekend retreat of yoga asana practice and meditation. Our physical yoga practices will be conducted in flowing, yin and restorative styles. We will be practicing meditation both as a stand-alone practice as well as in some of the movement sessions. The intention of the weekend is to recognize the places both in our physical-body layer and in our mental/emotional layers where we are limiting our ability to live fully in the world. By recognizing where our limitations exist, we have an opportunity to explore those boundaries and see if we can expand safely beyond that place. The weekend will provide time each day for personal reflection, interaction with nature around the center and there will also be a set time for personal questions or inquiries with Ali and Debra.

Feb 4th to Feb 13th
Joy of Being 10 day Yoga & Meditation Retreat in Goa, India with Darin and Wendy
Join us on a journey to the mystical land of Goa, India, nestled on the coast of the Arabian Sea. Nurture and nourish your body, mind and soul in a community of kindred spirits, while enjoying sun, sand and sea all in the exotic setting of India – the birthplace of yoga. Wendy and Darin, co-creators of Shanti Retreat, will draw upon many years of study and practice to provide insight into the world of yoga and meditation. Twice daily yoga classes will take place in the serene yoga spaces surrounded by rice and buffalo fields. Off the mat enjoy a stroll on one of the many nearby white sand beaches lined with coconut palms or peruse wares from Tibetan and Kashmiri traders at the famous Anjuna market. Your home away from home will be Samata Retreat Center. At the heart of the property is a 150 year old mango tree. Surrounding the tree are lush gardens filled with birdsong, occasional monkey visits, and fly-by’s of the giant hornbill. During the afternoon free time, cool off in the beautiful teardrop shaped pool or enjoy a massage at Samata Spa, included in your retreat package. For any questions or to register, please email Lacey. More information coming soon!
