We have purposefully timed this retreat for ease in arriving and ease in completion – ie, not rushing to arrive on a Friday night, but instead, we encourage you to take the time to leave on Friday morning for a leisurely trip to arrive by lunchtime or the first afternoon session. And we complete our time together over lunch on Sunday so that we ample time to travel back home without stress. We encourage and invite you to offer yourself a spacious retreat, surrounded by ease!

This nourishing weekend will include active yoga, long restorative practices and iRest™ yoga nidra.

Restorative Yoga is a safe, nurturing and truly joyful practice. Karla and Neal are highly skilled and passionate about this approach and welcome you this retreat, a place where you may return home to a body and mind that is at ease and fully vibrant. Restorative Yoga is a gentle practice that can have profoundly beneficial effects which include:

A dismantling of chronic tension patterns
Enhanced immune function
Effective cellular respiration
Reduced hyper-tension in the cardiovascular system
Reduced mental and emotional tension
The body-mind can return to a natural state of ease and equilibrium

“Thanks Karla and Neal for the amazing weekend. It was a beautiful gift to be here. Your peaceful and loving energy certainly made the weekend special.”

“There was a profound truth and ease present here that made it possible to discover some of one’s own profound truths and ease.”

“Being on retreat with you Karla and Neal is so utterly nourishing, relaxing and restoring. You both live and embody your teachings which makes the experience even more special. Thank you.”
