Come join Dave's Retreats for a wonderful weekend at Heifer Ranch full of yoga, meditation, learning, relaxation, and peace. This retreat package includes two nights in one of Dave's Retreats' comfortable lodges and six delicious meals. Of course just being at beautiful Heifer Ranch in the fall is alone worth the trip. There are playful goats, adorable piglets, and a whole host of other livestock to keep your attention. Yoga beginners are welcome to come. In fact, you are welcome to come just for the scenery and delicious food!
You will be accommodated in comfortable lodges at Heifer Ranch during this retreat.
You will have nine yoga sessions to choose from led by four top-notch instructors from Illinois, Louisiana, and Arkansas. In addition to yoga and meditation, there will be classes on a variety of topics such as organic gardening, cheese-making, essential oils, and massage. In all, there are over 15 classes for you to pick and choose from.
Dawn calls her gentle yoga class "yoga nap time". Gentle yoga is all about relaxation. It is for everyone. No experience required. All the poses are on the mat, lying down, and with the use of props and blankets. The whole point is to feel so relaxed that you can fall asleep. You will end with Savasana featuring Dawn's singing bowls.
Stretch out your whole body and greet the day with an open heart. Enjoy the sounds of the farm, the heat of the early morning sun, the cool breeze, and reconnect with your gratitude.

During the changing of seasons, fall tends to bring cold, dry, windy weather. With all of this energy circulating, it can be difficult to feel grounded and stable. This flow is intended to help you ground your energy and calm your mind. It will focus on poses to balance the Muladhara (root) chakra and the vata dosha. You will utilize warming pranayama techniques (breath techniques) to warm and soothe the body and include a gentle, slow flow that will help you root into relaxation. You will discuss ways to help keep your body healthy and quiet your mind during the fall season. The class will conclude with a self-massage and guided meditation.
This retreat will take place at Heifer Ranch in Arkansas, USA.
