We’ve all lost something in this last year. Maybe it was a loved one. Maybe it was your business, your career or your education. Maybe it was your sense of direction, purpose, or maybe it was your sense of self.
Most of us have been drifting through life over the past 15 months. The pandemic pushed many of us off our intended path and as we begin to come out of it, you may wonder, “now what ?”
In an intimate retreat setting, you are invited to practice, play, reflect, connect, release and rethink your way forward. A Change of Season Yoga & Wine Retreat is your opportunity to connect with self, re-establish your priorities, identify new possibilities and move forward with clarity and intention.
Just as the seasons change, so do we. This is your season to start building new hopes and aspirations for yourself.
