AWAKEN! Kundalini Yoga & Ayurveda Cleanse Weekend

With Anna Winkler and Trish O'Gorman

April 30 - May 2, 2021

Combining two ancient wisdom teachings to move you into the season of renewal and rebirth

RETREAT BY INVITED PRESENTER

Welcome spring by activating energy that has lain dormant all winter. Together, though yoga, meditation, nature walks, and healthy eating we will harness the power of two ancient practices to shake off fatigue, release toxins, and increase self-awareness and inner peace. This is a rare opportunity to reset in a beautiful bucolic and deeply spiritual environment.

“Fabulous! The teachings, the music, the activities were right on. Being together in person was pure magic.”

STAY SAFE DURING COVID-19: We are committed to your health and safety; please read our COVID-19 Precautions & Preparations to understand our strategies.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Whole-body healing addresses your physical, mental, and spiritual health, creating a comprehensive foundation to restore balance to your health.

  • Kundalini yoga and meditation are practices to connect back into the heart space—an opportunity to cleanse physically, mentally and spiritually. Trish will teach a variety of kriya and meditations specially designed for transformation and transition from Winter into Spring.
  • Originating in India over 3,000 years ago, Ayurvedic practices bring balance to your constitution, healing and replenishing body and mind. Anna will introduce the basic tenets of Ayurveda including the 5 Elements and the 3 Doshas (constitutions); she will help you determine your dosha and will discuss the importance of the seasons and cleansing.
Our weekend together will include Aquarian Sadhana (daily early morning practice), Kundalini Kriya, discussions, yoga nidra, evening meditations, and time spent hiking the beautiful Shawangunk mountains—all while following a simple, nutritious, cleansing Ayurvedic diet.
