THERE CAN BE NO LIGHT
Join Christina and Nick on a spiritual pilgrimage to the woods of Michigan. On this 3 day 2 night retreat we will play with the Emotion of Fear. With fear being the theme for this retreat, please do not fear, for we will be focusing on the light just as much as the dark! Surround yourself in the beauty of Mother Nature in a bright divine cabin. This retreat includes 4 yoga classes lead by Chicago alignment teachers Christina Corso and Nick Florino, vegan meals cooked by Jennifer Lynne Le Vine, herbal classes, and more! Just like nature, there can be no light without dark. We will play with this idea through fun interactive workshops and activities. All optional of course. Register below for a weekend of fun, ease, and awaken the power within your heart.

CLASS & WALK DESCRIPTIONS
Friday Night Grounding Class: Enjoy a grounding class of hip openers and forward folds to help you relax and get grounded physically and energetically to the space.
Saturday Morning Backbend Practice - Playing with Fear: In this class we will focus on challenging poses that bring up fear and resistance in your body. We will play with this fear and turn it into power and motivation! This will be a safe place to explore your body and mind deeply through asana.
Saturday Evening Inversion Practice with Pranayama and Meditation: As we dive deep into the practice of inversions and hip openers, we will continue to investigate fear, and through meditation, explore where this fear comes from and how to find peace, ease, and understanding beyond the emotion.
Sacred Forest Walk Under the Moon: After dinner we will take a walk through the woods. On this walk we will play a fun game still exploring this emotion of fear. At the end of this magical journey we will have a bonfire where we will release the fear and unwanted energy into the agni (fire). We will celebrate life and have story time, dancing, a jam circle with music and dancing, and of course s'mores! Feel free to bring any instruments!
