Spring Detox Retreat with Angela Jervis Read

May 1, 2020 - May 3, 2020

Time for some Spring cleaning! Take a few days this season to clean your house – your spirit house, that is.   The practice of yin yoga is a Divine way to influence the meridians that carry Qi to and from your organ matrix. Qi that has become stagnant, scattered and sluggish over the winter months can be refreshed and revitalized through the deep meditative holds that define yin yoga. Our disposition is a mirror of how our energy flows  – one can expect a shift not only in body but also in one’s emotional landscape. Over the weekend we will manipulate the flow of energy through asana, pranayama and meditation. Create space in body, mind and heart and leave this retreat feeling whole again. Please see website link for more details and contact Shanti Retreat by phone or email to register.
