10th Annual (and final) Embracing Balance Retreat


Yin Yoga Embracing Balance Retreat Whidbey Island
A YIN, YANG AND YOGA NIDRA RETREAT ON WHIDBEY ISLAND WITH LAURA HUMPF
MAY 19-21, 2017

Come find balance on Whidbey Island while we explore the practices of yin yoga, yang yoga and yoga nidra. Yin yoga is a cool, quiet practice of holding poses for several minutes for the purposes of stretching and flexibility. Yang yoga is a heating, active practice used to build strength. Yoga nidra is a guided meditation used for deep relaxation.

 

The retreat is located at the beautiful Yoga Lodge on Whidbey Island, and you can enjoy over 7 hours of practice and plenty of time to wander, read, write, nap, get a massage, lounge or simply be. There is a wonderful garden, a pond for contemplation and a sauna at the lodge as well as great hikes and small towns nearby to explore. All meals are vegetarian and mostly organic. All levels welcome and encouraged to join.

Testimonials
“I appreciate your attentiveness towards our wholeness: body, head, heart, soul. I love how you balance movement, philosophy, intellectualization and emotions. Everything! Not once did I leave class feeling that a part of me was neglected. It is also so important to me to know your social justice commitment is present.”
-Emily, retreat participant

Thanks Laura. This was unforgettable, just like the other retreat [I attended]. You are a natural nurturer and tender instructor.”
-Diana, retreat participant

I just got home and am realizing how awesome and balanced and relaxed and just generally joyful about life I’m feeling at the moment, and wanted to take a second to express some gratitude. Thank you so much for putting on this awesome retreat! It was a great experience.
