Retreat Spotlight: Yoga for Balanced Living with Abby Blythe… You are your own best healer!

November 3rd – 5th, 2017
Join Abby Blythe, a gifted yoga instructor and yoga therapist, for an introduction to the vast benefits of yoga and how to deepen an existing practice.

 

You will be gently guided through yoga classes to better understand how a daily practice can support proper breathing, healthy digestion, cardiovascular health, increased vitality, regeneration for healthy aging and an overall sense of well being.

This fall retreat is also a beautiful time to spend enjoying time fireside, savoring the crispness of fall nature walks, and honoring the opportunity to go within – a gift to Self.

On Saturday night Abby will share her love of kirtan. Guests repeatedly share that it is such a treat to experience and bask in the energy of singing, or just listening to, sacred Indian mantras with Abby.

About Abby

Abby is a Certified Yoga Teacher and Yoga Therapist. Since the age of 13, Abby has been studying yoga, and began teaching yoga full time since first traveling to India in 2008. After spending nearly 5 years living in Thailand studying Yoga with her teacher Swami Vivekenanda Saraswati, she has returned to her home in the Haliburton Highlands, and has since founded Light Hatch Yoga Studio. Abby’s grounded teaching style finds its roots in her deep knowledge and understanding of the yogic practices, and is highlighted by her joy of teaching, lightness of heart and even the odd song or two. She enjoys meeting her students where they are at and tailors her classes to the individuals present. Additionally, she is a life-long lover of music and finds particular inspiration in singing the sacred mantras of India; a practice known as “Kirtan.” A professionally trained singer since the age of 10, blending the joy of singing with the aspiration of her yoga practice has been one of her most profound discoveries yet.
