Full Description

Get ready for the holiday season! We will spend two nights at this relaxing and beautiful lodge in the Coastal Range west of Portland, OR.

The perfect balance to shorter days and cooler weather is to find stillness through introspection, meditation and Yin styles of yoga as well as learning when your body needs more Yang activity to feel energized. This weekend retreat will allow space in your days for activity and enjoying the outdoors while providing calming and quiet yoga and meditation practices each morning and evening. We will gather in circle to share, laugh, create and relax.
