Deeply Restorative Yoga with Stephanie Koller

Friday, January 11th, 2019, 6:00-7:30pm
restorative yogaDeeply Restorative Yoga invites you to explore your practice by taking refuge in a calm center.  This class focuses on yoga postures that require no muscular exertion, creating a sense of relaxation, restoration and rejuvenation.  Each pose is held for several minutes and deeply supported by props – blankets, bolsters, and blocks.  Throughout the class we will also use essential oils in a variety of ways to further promote a balanced energy flow.  During the class, students will be guided to notice thoughts and sensations in their body.  This yoga style provides a time for being instead of doing.  No yoga or meditation experience is needed and all levels are welcome.

Annual Yoga and Yarn Retreat at The Nature Inn at Bald Eagle

Saturday January 12th, 2019 9:30am – 6:00pm and/or Sunday January 13th, 2019 9:30am – 4:00pm

Collage for yoga retreat

Wellness in Motion and Stitch Your Art Out are once again teaming up to bring you what has become our annual Yoga and Yarn Retreat. You’ll have a choice of either one or two days of yoga and knitting. We will again be at the Nature Inn at Bald Eagle. This wonderful place gives a beautiful, calm setting, lots of windows, and a warm fireplace. We love it there!

We’ll begin each of our days unwinding the kinks from our bodies while overlooking Bald Eagle Mountain and Lake during a guided all levels yoga practice. The yoga will be suitable for those who have never done yoga before. If you feel physically unable, that’s just fine. You are welcome to knit on your own in the morning, and relax in your own way. The knitting will also be suitable for people who have never knitted–and we will also have projects available for more experienced knitters.

After yoga, enjoy a healthy and delicious lunch, which will include both vegan and gluten-free options. Spend the afternoon knitting by the fireplace, making new friends, and enjoying coffee, tea, and snacks. Saturday guests will enjoy a delicious dinner, which makes for a perfectly stress free day, especially if you plan to spend the night at the Inn. On Sunday, the retreat will end before dinner, at 4pm.

When and How?

The retreat will take place on Saturday and/or Sunday, January 12 and 13, 2019. To ensure that we have enough people both days, we will open signups to the 2-day people, beginning now until the end of September. Beginning Oct. 1, we will open it up to those who would prefer a choice of Saturday or Sunday. Early-bird signup prices will end on Nov. 30, and you may continue to sign up until December 27. After that, we will take names in case of an unexpected opening. If you wish to stay overnight during that weekend, please book a room directly through the hotel. Rooms are limited and filled last year, so it’s safer to book right away! We have some rooms set aside on both Friday and Saturday nights, so be sure to mention our event.

The 2-day price includes lunch, afternoon snack, dinner, and classes on Saturday, and again, lunch, snack, and classes on Sunday. (Note that Sunday does not include dinner, and that the hotel room is not included in pricing, so you will need to reserve through the Nature Inn.)

The early bird cost for Saturday is $160 and Sunday is $145; if you register for both days, it will be $290. After November 30, the cost will be $180 for Saturday and $165 for Sunday, or $340 for both days.
