Self Care and Energy Repair

With MJ Watkins and Lucas Hall

October 23 - 25, 2020

A Weekend Retreat in Right Effort

A GUEST PROGRAM

Led by two dynamic teachers from New York Loves Yoga, each day of this restorative retreat offers a tool box of wellness offerings: uplifting vinyasa yoga, guided metta meditations, breath work, meridian energy work, sound baths, somatics and strength and mobility training—all to encourage balance and vitality. You will leave feeling clear, deeply relaxed, and rejuvenated.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Each morning begins with breath meditations and classic vinyasa yoga, followed by a serene light-filled silent breakfast, you will feel the bounty of  strength and contentment.

A  group circle after our physical and silent mornings, brings us together balanced,  invigorating and calm. After time for private reflection, writing and contemplation, we meet to discuss right effort and how to retrain the mind to produce wholesome states of being, while redirecting unwholesome thoughts that may be limiting your ability  to experience joy and contentment.

In the evening, Atma Buti Tibetan sound bowls fill the meditation hall as your nights are cocooned by  the relaxation technique of yoga nidra.

  • Metta Meditation internalizes good wishes for yourself and others
  • Vinyasa Yoga repeats a series of poses to increase body heat and build strength
  • Somatics are a series of slow movements that emphasize internal physical perception and experience
  • Yoga Nidra is “dynamic sleep,” allowing the body to deeply relax while the  mind stays inwardly alert—the knife’s edge where the body “sleeps” while  the mind is lucid.
  • Atma Buti Tibetan Sound Bowls—literally translated as soul herbal medicine—deliver the healing power of sound
