Finding Balance: A Yoga and Self-Care Day Retreat
Monrovia Canyon Park
Sunday, July 29, 2018

Every once in a while, we need to take a step back, slow down, and give ourselves the opportunity to recharge. Our day retreat provides a space for rest and rejuvenation in beautiful Monrovia Canyon Park. Set in a cozy cabin surrounded by nature, you’ll feel like you are miles away from Los Angeles, with plenty of tall trees, streams, wildlife, and a nearby waterfall to explore.

We will start our day with a morning practice that includes yoga, breath work, mantra, and meditation, followed by a leisurely lunch. In the afternoon, we will study a yogic concept called “The Ten Bodies”, which outlines ten areas of consciousness, including: 

1. Soul Body
2. Negative Mind
3. Positive Mind
4. Neutral Mind
5. Physical Body
6. Arcline
7. Aura
8. Pranic Body
9. Subtle Body
10. Radiant Body

Through lecture, meditation, and various exercises, we will explore each of these concepts, which can provide a great road map for self exploration and self awareness. After our talk, we will close the day with a relaxing Yoga Nidra (guided meditation) session. 

Cost: $100 before 12/15; $125 after 12/15

*Cost includes catered lunch
**Please arrive at 9:45am for a 10am start!
