Yoga Holiday — Connecting to Self and Community

•Are you looking for a yoga holiday to recharge through contemplative and joyful practices?

•Do you crave the space and time needed to connect more authentically to yourself and others?

•Do you long for an opportunity to practice yoga with teachers who support bodies of all sizes, ages, and abilities?

Join us in taking time to pause, become aware, and build appreciation for who you are and what you offer the world.  With the many demands of our lives and events in the world around us, it can sometimes feel hard to know what to do with challenging experiences that overwhelm, sadden, isolate, and bring stress.

These experiences can weigh heavy on us and impact our ideas about ourselves as well as our relationships with others.  The upside? Yoga is a practice that reminds us of the deep parts of ourselves that are wise and unconditionally loving.

A Yoga holiday offers the opportunity to tune in to ourselves, to learn about the conditioned patterns in our minds and behaviors, and to nurture ourselves from a place of kindness rather than a place of deficit and judgment.

In this special Yoga holiday retreat, Rachel Plies and Jaime Bedard- yoga teachers and Integrated Movement Therapy® Practitioners- will lead daily practices that illuminate the heart of yoga. Together, we will explore movement, meditation, song, and discussion of how yoga philosophy can apply to our daily lives.

Kalikalos, an intentional community whose vision is a “world where authentic community and sustainable living are the foundation of all aspects of our society,” provides the space and an opportunity to “live” our yoga practice.

Immerse Yourself in Authentic Community

Come immerse yourself in a loving community with full days of connecting to self and others.  Each day includes yoga practice, three thoughtfully-prepared vegetarian meals enjoyed with the community at Kalikalos, time at the beach, opportunities for you to contribute to the community of Kalikalos by helping in the garden, helping prepare meals, or tending to other needs of the community, and unstructured time for you to relax and unwind.
