Mini-Yoga Retreat

Floyd Yoga Jam Mini-Retreat – June 28-30, 2019

Allow the artificial world the fall away and immerse yourself in an environment ripe for accessing your innate creativity and intuition. Through mindful observation and interactions with our natural world, you will have the opportunity to renew your beginners mind and experience your own nature in an entirely new way.

Together we will take in the beauty and serenity of Spikenard Honeybee Sanctuary with both guided and self-directed experiences and activities. The honeybees are deeply connected to the natural and hold a wealth of wisdom to share with us if we are willing to slow down and listen. This weekend will be all about slowing down and paying closer attention. 

The weekend will include mindful movement, gentle yoga, restorative activities, walks in nature, playful art, music, bonfire, and so many opportunities for connecting and reconnecting.

Registration at EventBrite.
