Full Description

Yoga Therapy A La Carte –
Your Anti-Stress Weekend Retreat in Joshua Tree

The Problem is STRESS – Just about everyone feels they have too much stress in their lives. Hardly anybody knows how to cool down, give body and mind a break and restore urgently needed energy to master the daily challenges.
Years ago, there was a song in which the title suggested, “Don’t worry, be happy.” If only it were so simple! Unfortunately, when it comes to stress-management, a little sound advise, however wise, may not go a long way. Being told by your doctor, spouse or best friend to relax and take it easy just doesn’t do it. The advise may be well-meant and sound terrific, but it’s still not enough.
My SOLUTION for you:
 To effectively manage the stress in your life, you need the right stress-reducing tool, In fact, you need an entire TOOL BOX filled with a variety of techniques, strategies and tactics.
This TOOL BOX will be a package of ideas and methods based on the holistic methodology of yoga therapy that you can integrate into the various aspects of your life. Tools which will help us learn: how to relax the body, letting go of physical/mental tension, control anger, worry less, creating a life-style which is more stress resistant, from caring about what goes into your mouth to the kind of chair you sit in, how much sleep you get and especially how to turn off that racing “monkey” mind.
Learn how to use it in THEORY AND PRAXIS:
During the Retreat we will not just talk about the phenomena of stress and how to tackle it, but also practice how to apply yoga therapy asanas. In fact you will leave with a different perspective and a variety of efficient tools.
You can take notes and pictures and there will be lots of time for individual Q&A. You’ll also get a handout with essential facts to take home with you. Find Your Anti-Stress Toolbox in Joshua Tree.
Looking forward to welcome you.



Most of the unique buildings at the Joshua Tree Retreat Center were built by world-renowned architects, Frank Lloyd Wright and his son, Lloyd. The Center is unlike the more commercially oriented Hotels. They have created open spaces, meditation locations, and serene vistas filled with native plants. It is their goal to blend and balance with their mission and needs.
For our retreat we booked the Ding Le Mei House.
This private, simple, functional and yet comfortable 10 bedroom (twin beds) and 6 bath house was designed and built by Frank and son Lloyd Wright. It is completely self-contained, sleeping up to 25 participants. It has a large dining room, full kitchen, food prep room and a very large meeting space with fireplace and a small pool. It also has a veranda wrapping every bedroom with a courtyard, or backyard for outdoor gatherings. The Ding Le Mei house is fully heated and air- conditioned. Bed linens, pillow, blanket, soap, and towels are provided. You may wish to bring extra blankets, as desert nights can be cooler.

The Retreat starts Friday, May 22, 2015 at 3:00PM
And ends Sunday, May 24, 2015 at 2:00 PM after Lunch.

Participation is limited to min 15 and max 20 guests.
