Yoga, Peace, and Quiet Retreat with Aaron Ogden
In Santa Margarita, San Luis Obispo County, Central Coast California
December 1 - 3
December 19 - 21 Winter Solstice
January 19 - 21, 2018
Join us for Sagrada's 3 day Yoga, Peace, and Quiet Retreat in Central Coast California.
In our modern, technology-driven, fast-paced world, multi-tasking has become the norm. Our body, mind and spirit are highly susceptible to sensory overload, leaving us feeling stressed and depleted. Our Yoga, Peace and Quiet Retreat is designed for slowing down, cultivating mindfulness and present moment awareness while reconnecting to those parts of ourselves that get lost in the day-to-day shuffle.
Balance and harmony will be restored with rejuvenating yoga, time spent in nature, mind + heart opening meditation and prana expanding breath awareness. Communal meal sharing and conscious eating practices offer time to reflect and share with new friends. Contemplative periods of silence are built into our retreat to quiet the mind, settle the emotions, decompress the nervous system, heighten the senses and increase clarity and connection to source energy. With this retreat, we offer you an opportunity to hit the reset button by:
- nurturing your body with healing yoga sessions
- revitalizing your spirit with invigorating walks through pristine, natural countryside
- nourishing and cleansing your entire being with prana enhancing, organic cuisine
- carving out time for rest and reflection
- clearing the mind with centering meditation
- reducing electromagnetic toxins with a digital detox
FLOW FOR THE WEEKEND
Days will begin in contemplative silence with morning meditation, hiking along one of Sagrada's picturesque trails and yoga in the spacious, light filled studio that opens onto the trees, and majestic mountain views. Midday, there will be opportunities for quiet, individual reflection in nature and in the late afternoon, we'll gather for yin / restorative / therapeutic yoga accompanied with organic aromatherapy, leaving you feeling grounded and at peace as we move into the evening hours. Our days will culminate in more quiet time to take you into the realm of sleep with clarity, ready to receive and interpret the messages that are delivered during dreamtime.
Between activities, there will be plenty of time to take a dip in the saltwater pool overlooking the scenic landscape (weather permitting), soak in the hot tub under a sky full of stars, unwind in the reflection garden or lounge in a hammock.
