Rejuvenate at Rushton with Kristin Page
Transitioning into Spring is a magical time of growth, both in the natural world and within. As we move from Winter into Spring, take time on this one-day retreat at the Rushton Conservation Center to reconnect to the stillness and wisdom that lies within, and remember our purest potential to blossom in the midst of it all. Our yoga practice is a way for us to reconnect and energize physically and mentally. Kristin Page will guide us to step back from the busyness and get reacquainted with the calm steadiness that is cultivated through breath, movement, stillness, and connection with the natural world around us. Taking this time to slow down and reset our bodies and minds, while being held amid nature, is the best gift we can offer ourselves and those around us.
This retreat is suitable for all levels.
WHAT TO EXPECT
