Restorative yoga: rest, rejuvenate, and reawaken

Through this gentle and deeply relaxing practice, you’ll restore your body and mind. Candlelight and aromatherapy will be incorporated to reawaken your senses and calm the monkey mind and body. This is a calming and therapeutic practice that will soothe the nervous system and help facilitate the release of physical and mental tension.

Awakening Flow

You will start your day with more energy and ease. This class is moderately paced to cultivate strength, flexibility, and balance within a gentle continuous sequence of postures. You'll build strength and heat while connecting to your breath and creating a sense of ease from the inside out.

Movement lab: functional spine

The teachings and techniques from this Lab-style class will give you a new appreciation for your good “backbone”! You’ll explore the muscular and skeletal components of the spine using somatic explorations (body-centered meditations that help you learn about your spine from the inside-out), partner exercises, drawing, mobility and stability exercises, and yoga asana (postures). You’ll learn tools to assess how you move through the segments of your spine and learn techniques to help work through habitual spinal movement patterns.

Nutrition seminar

Together, you will dive into the complicated world of nutrition and learn some fundamental concepts to enhance your health. You will discuss a balanced approach to nutrition and touch on foundational concepts such as how and why to get your macro and micro nutrients. Windham Retreats will also provide you with some easy recipes and other ideas to try out at home.

Herbalism workshop

Are you curious about the wild and weedy plants that are good for the mind and body? This will be an introductory session to learn practical ways to gather and use medicinal herbs. You will learn basic plant identification, recipes, and techniques for preparing oils and salves while sipping on some medicinal herbal tea.
