"From time to time, to remind ourselves to relax and be peaceful, we may wish to set aside some time for a retreat, a day of mindfulness, when we can walk slowly, smile, drink tea with a friend, enjoy being together as if we are the happiest people on Earth." --Thich Nhat Hanh--

Hello Beautiful Friends,
I am so excited to announce that we will be hosting our third annual retreat at Callaway Gardens. With the help of my dear friend Doug Dailey, we have secured 8 cottages and a beautiful space to practice yoga. The past two years we have had so much fun being creative, zip lining across the lake, doing yoga on the lawn, sharing our yoga practice, exploring the gardens, and sharing a meal together, that we wanted to do it again! Each year we explore a theme. This years theme is Awakening the Heart. This will be explored through many modalities including yoga, compassion meditation, walking meditation, journal writing, deep listening, fellowship, spending time in nature, singing, music, and anything else that lights us up.

Callaway Gardens is a special place because the nature of the grounds invite you to slow down and let go of the sense of urgency that often plagues our daily lives. During this retreat participants will have plenty of time to explore the gardens alone or with friends. There are bike, boat, and golf rentals, beautiful flowers, and trails to hike. The Butterfly Garden, Discovery Center, and Bird shows are also fun to explore and visit. For more info check out the website at www.callawaygardens.com

The set up to incorporate yoga into this experience couldn't be better! Each morning of the retreat weekend, participants can wake up and walk from the Southern Pine Cottages where we will be staying to the Marriott Lodge & Spa for a coffee or tea and then join the group for a Specialty Yoga Class led by Jasper Elliott Wolfe, LMT,NMT,RYT. Afterwards, enjoy the breakfast buffet or head out to explore the Gardens in your own way! There is also a beautiful pool and hot tubs if you just feel like relaxing! There will also be a Friday and Saturday evening offering. This year we have the pleasure of experiencing a creative movement class led by Shannon Andrews Skipper on Saturday evening! More details to follow.

Jasper Elliott Wolfe is the co- founder and primary yoga teacher of the Conscious Body Healing Arts Center. She is the creator of Slow & Sacred Flow, which emphasizes the importance of practicing authentically while focusing on gratitude and is a practice that is appropriate for all experience levels.
