A mindful, embodied yoga practice can provide relief from symptoms and will help to develop supportive skills for everyday life. In this retreat, participants will learn practical yoga and mindfulness-based tools that decrease the stress, anxiety, and sleep problems that many experience. The retreat will employ Mindful Yoga Therapy, an empirically informed, clinically tested program comprising five practices: pranayama (breathing), asana (postures connected with breath), yoga nidra, meditation, and gratitude. Each practice is a tool that can be used to create supports that the student can bring into their lives. Together, they form a comprehensive system — or toolbox — that will carry you into a life of strength and resilience.
