Women’s Fall Retreat – October 4-6, 2019

Sleeping Lady Resort in Leavenworth, WA

Celebrate Fall and enjoy the camaraderie of this Women’s Yoga Weekend! Fall’s focus will be on flowing with the current of the season to let go, turn inward, and cultivate a rich inner world in preparation for the coming quiet of Winter. We’ll look at the cycles of change through Nature’s model, and learn how to cultivate mindfulness and ease in honoring our changing paths throughout life. Explore ways to stay in balance during the season, share with old and new friends alike. The weekend will be steeped in opportunities to connect, explore, and rest in the comfort of a warm, compassionate filled community. Join Yoga Momma Founder & Director Jen Keeler (ERYT-500, YACEP, RPYT,) for a weekend filled with yoga, meditation, nature, exquisite food and accommodation, and FREE TIME!

The weekend is lovingly created to create space for dropping in and being present, and leaving the distractions of our daily life behind. As such, we ask that you leave technology and phones behind when we gather together, and ask you to moderate your use of alcohol for everyone’s enjoyment.

Included in the weekend will be:

  • Morning Meditations;
  • 4 full yoga sessions focused on releasing tension, surrendering, and cultivating mindfulness;
  • Discussions to deepen your understanding and mastery of change through the lens of Yoga;
  • Fire circle and ceremony;

They are committed to sustainable and eco-conscious practices, with reclaimed wood construction, an organic garden that provides ingredients for the kitchen, water conservation, and more. The rooms are luxurious yet simple featuring forest views, down comforters, private bathrooms, and heated towel racks. Our yoga practice space Quail is gorgeous and the food is spectacular. This is some of the best food to eat, mountains to hike, and air to breathe!
