Rejuvenating Feldenkrais® & Yoga Retreat in the Santa Cruz Mountains
Join us for a rejuvenating body movement retreat on Columbus Day weekend in the Santa Cruz Mountains. For three days and three nights we will practice yoga, Feldenkrais, dance, hike and meditate at the relaxing Presentation Center. Located just 20 minutes from Silicon Valley and 30 minutes from the San Francisco airport, this land is a sanctuary away from home filled with many beautiful redwood trees, wildlife, a lake, sunshine and stillness. In between retreat offerings there will be plenty of free time to indulge in hiking, swimming, a good book or a cup of tea in the natural habitat all around. What is Feldenkrais? The Feldenkrais method® consists of gentle movement sequences all geared towards improving postural alignment, refining coordination functions, and restoring our innate graceful movement. Each lesson will revolve around a particular theme (such as opening the heart, the lower extremity and connection with the earth etc.) and will be interwoven with empowerment tools & meditation. What kind of yoga will we do? In the morning we will engage in a brief active asana practice to warm up the body, build strength and awareness of breath. In the afternoon we will have a gentle Hatha and/or Yin yoga session to balance energy, digestion and immune function. This work will compliment the Feldenkrais lessons of each day. What should I expect to receive from these offerings? The results of combining these two practices include increased clarity, focus and freedom in your body and in your mind. Participants also report improved sleep, digestion and experiencing and a wonderful opportunity to relax from the business of day to day life. Come gather with us we reunite mind, body, spirit and attune with our own inner rhythm! All experience/ levels are welcome
