Refresh yourself this winter with qigong, yoga and self-care in Florida.
Enjoy a variety of gentle, easy-to-learn, accessible, and meditative styles of qigong and yoga that focus on breathing and body sensing, including Kripalu yoga, yin yoga, and yoga nidra. Plus, an intro to tai chi. Enjoy complete relaxation with rejuvenating restorative yoga, postures and practices of bliss and wellbeing. Time for self-care, reflection, rest, reading, connection to community and exploring area attractions.
Our retreat will be in the Kashi Yoga community, on the banks of the St. Sebastian River. We will offer morning, afternoon & evening qigong and yoga sessions, for a total of 5 hours daily. And spacious afternoons and evenings to relax, walk and meditate in the numerous temples and sacred places on the grounds.
We’ll create opportunities for you to explore on your own, or join with other members of our group to carpool and enjoy the beautiful white sand beaches nearby and affordable water front restaurants less than 15 minutes away. If you are a lap swimmer, you can join Ken at the local Olympic size swimming pool just 5 minutes by car. Also Pelican Island, our nation’s first national wildlife refuge is a short ride away.
Our own daily schedule will include options to participate in Kashi community activities, which are offered to the public and special guests, including Kashi yoga classes and a visit to the Kashi permaculture project on site.
The dream of my life
Is to lie down by a slow river
And stare at the light in the trees
And be nothing a little while
But the rich lens of attention—Mary Oliver
