Retreat News with Videos

The weekend of April 5-7 I was privileged to co-lead “Journey to the Heart of Anusara” retreat. 57 students participated at beautiful Kripalu Center for Yoga and Wellness in Stockbridge, MA.  It was a wonderful experience all round.  Here's a short video peek into the retreat:

Retreat is an opportunity to step away from the normal day to day of life and dedicate time and energy to experiencing deeper connection with oneself and with others.  We journeyed to the heart through inspiring stories, deep slow asana, meditation and my favorite, Kirtan, or devotional chanting which is a fast track in.

One of the things that made Journey to the Heart of Anusara Yoga Retreat so special was having four certified Anusara teachers working together: myself, Tiffany Wood, John Seelye, and Jackie Prete. That meant that when one of us was teaching, the other three were assisting. We were able to give participants a lot of personal attention during classes. It was wonderful for me to have the opportunity to focus solely on adjusting, enhancing, and supporting the students without having to teach at the same time. Working as a group of teachers was an inspiring experience for me and I look forward to repeating it.  Join us at Kripalu in 2020!  Dates to be decided.

I left the retreat feeling refreshed and reinvigorated both as a person, a yoga practitioner and as a  yoga teacher and studio owner.  Working as team we share ideas, insights and techniques to enhance ourselves as Aunusara Yoga teachers.

I’m offering a sweet summer weekend retreat at Ananda Ashram in Monroe in August.  Click here for details.  Early bird discount through May 1.
