Yoga Nidra Overnight-3 Outdoor Practices
This is an amazing retreat with a great yoga community, a lovely setting, and 3 varied and grounded (Sat. pm), deep yoga Nidra (awake/sleep) evening practice, and an active Vinyasa Flow Sunday morning. Kept this one inexpensive to make it more accessible. We LOVE this place, these people, these practices!

Hidden Hills: is nestled in the rolling hills of the Ozarks. It is operated and owned by two of my former yoga students. It is secluded and quiet, very restorative to the soul and tucked away from the rest of life's responsibilities. The practice stage offers a view of the vineyards and of the rising of the full moon. The B and B is warmly an beautifully decorated a knotty pine, cathedral ceilings, and windows that expose the lovely view. The rooms are comfortable and complete as well as pretty.
The yoga community is varied. Our last one had students age 10-65, is true yoga fashion, every one accepts each other and contributes to the amazing "group field" of positivity, caring, and sharing. There are students ranging from beginner-advanced. This has always been a wonderful mix of old friends and new. It is a pleasure for me, as a teacher to watch as the group practices and play combines individuals into a cohesive group by retreat's end.
The practices offer a variety of experiences for my students. Saturday afternoon is a grounding practice with plenty of poses to stretch, loosen, and grow confidence/connection with each other and the teacher. Sunday is an active vinyasa flow--sun salutations done in a variety of ways, creating a great appetie for the big delicious brunch that follows.
the best way to discover all these advantages is simple--mark your calendar and show up--to paraphrase the sutras, just do the practice and see what happens1
