Summer yoga retreat in the mountains (and next year’s dates)
Last weekend (July 24-26th), we led our first summer yoga retreat to the majestic mountains of Leavenworth. While we were thoroughly spoilt with decadent luxury at the Sleeping Lady resort, and our days were filled with lots of Yoga, nature, food, relaxation and fun.
Our days started with an early morning yoga class with sun salutations, asanas and pranayama followed by a well earned breakfast buffet. Participants then chose to either hike, swim, bike around or sit in on an optional asana pronunciation class. Afternoon lunch was another time we got together to stuff ourselves and unwind. Our evening yoga sessions were more intense and had everyone working very hard. Dinner was welcome after all that work. On the first night, we went for a stroll around the creek and the second night, we had a yoga nidra class which left everyone very relaxed and calm.
Sunday everyone seemed a little tired after 2 days of yoga and fun. We closed with more yoga, many pictures, food (again) and goodbyes. And promises to return next year. Here are some pictures from our retreat.
