We get it. Weekends are precious time for family. Or maybe they are your regular work days.
So, how to make time for retreat? For self-care, restoration and rejuvenation.
An exquisite weekday retreat.
Thursday, April 26th
9:30am – 2:30pm
The Bearspaw Historical Society Barn, 5 minutes NW of Calgary
Perfect if you are:
A householder Yogini
An evening shift worker
Willing to tell your boss you need a personal day 🙂
Take a day to:
Connect with community
Eat chocolate (I never leave home without it and I’m happy to share)
Your day-retreat schedule:
9:30am check in
10am yoga (whether you are fairly new to practice or a seasoned yogini, you will feel nourished by Emma from Emma Barry Yoga and Retreats.
12 noon lunch (bring your own – tea and chocolate will be supplied)
1pm qigong shaking/cupping/laughing and other chi-vigorating exercises.
1:30pm breath and meditation (no experience necessary)
2:30pm Gratitude and goodbye
This is a Pay What You Can retreat. That means that although the retreat is valued at $80 per person, you have the option of paying the amount that is available to you. You may choose to pay either $45, $62.50 or $80 (plus Eventbrite fees).
Space is limited. I know the barn looks big but this replica of the original, complete with heated floors, will accommodate only so many yoga mats.
“My teaching approach explores vitalizing the multidimensional human being through embodied movement, breath awareness, meditation & earth connection. It is my honour and privilege to guide you on your journey of Self-awakening through the practice of Yoga and through deep retreat experiences. As my teaching studies evolve and deepen, my core offering remains the simple practice of inhaling Gratitude, and exhaling Love. I honour my teachers Don (Brahmanand) & Amba Stapleton, Shiva Rea, Amarin Dawn, and many more in the yoga lineage. I honour Rahelio, Jose and Lena Stevens, the Kogi Mamos and many other of my teachers holding the shamanic wisdom ~ the teachings of the medicine path.”
“I believe our health is tied to Nature. What we do for one, we do for the other. My training and paths are many but my philosophy is simple:
Look after our planet. Look after our children. Look after ourselves. Look after each other.”
Please bring your own lunch and yoga mat (some mats will be on hand for use).
I look forward to a weekday retreat with you!
