*Complimentary for in-house guests

Through diverse (though deeply intertwined) practices, yoga helps us nurture a heightened sense of awareness through our senses that can lead to a wondrously surprising ability to be present in the moment. To move in the world with more flexibility and to learn to free ourselves from the physical and emotional limitations we yearn to release, yoga can help us find the freedom of spirit and joyfulness within that we all crave. The practice of yoga offers blessed ease and comfort in the body and peacefulness in the mind. More than just exercise, it is a path to personal well-being, expanded consciousness and a renewed sense of self-acceptance. Dedicated practice can lead not only to flexibility of body, but resilience of mind; not only to strength of body, but courage of character; not only to physical balance, but emotional trust, groundeness, stability of spirit, profound humbleness, letting go of burdens and a sense of universal compassion for others and the world.

Our yoga teachers come from unique backgrounds and experiences. They are dedicated to sharing the wisdom of yoga in its fullness as a generous and evolving ancient system from their own personal and wholehearted practices. They have experienced yoga’s nourishment through their own lives; during their own painful, dangerous and challenging experiences and remain somehow passionate to pass on valuable life skills; letting go of judgement and pain, accepting love, sitting still, healing from the past, gaining patience and quieting our monkey minds.
