About our ‘Restorative Yoga Retreat’

This nourishing weekend will include active yoga, long restorative practices and iRest™ yoga nidra. Restorative Yoga is a safe, nurturing and truly joyful practice. Karla and Neal are highly skilled and passionate about this approach and welcome you this retreat, a place where you may return home to a body and mind that is at ease and fully vibrant. Restorative Yoga is a gentle practice that can have profoundly beneficial effects which include:

  • A dismantling of chronic tension patterns
  • Enhanced immune function
  • Effective cellular respiration
  • Reduced hyper-tension in the cardiovascular system
  • Reduced mental and emotional tension
  • The body-mind can return to a natural state of ease and equilibrium

We look forward to sharing our passion and love of  resting well with you ~ Neal and Karla
