Mindfulness Retreat for Women_ Yoga & Meditation in Nature with Maria Bliss & Julia Briggs - Yogabliss

Retreat to Nature, Return to Your Body, Remember Yourself

This retreat is an invitation to step away from our daily routines and schedules, to slow down and reconnect with ourselves.

In retreat, we respond to the quiet voice that is calling us home to be with ourselves. Now more than ever, it feels important that we heed this call. Taking time to acknowledge the challenges and changes we have been through, this retreat offers us the space to reconnect with our bodies, our inner resilience, and our own hearts.

Surrounded by nature, we will use yoga, breath work, walking, and seated meditation to explore what it means to be mindful in everyday life. The invitation is to deepen our awareness, notice our mental tendencies and to offer heartfelt kindness to it all. Deep in the woods, nestled on the shores of Diablo Lake, we will take time to slow down and prioritize self-care. We will enjoy nourishing, locally sourced meals, have time in nature and retreat into our own hearts.

Our weekend together includes:
Four yoga practices to include active sun salutations, gentle flow, yin, restorative & yoga nidra
Mindful movement, breath work, and walking meditation (indoor & outdoor)
Guided mindfulness meditations
Optional guided hike, guided canoe excursion and evening campfire to enjoy community and outdoor time
Five fresh, delicious meals showcasing the seasonal foods of the Skagit River Valley
Time for relaxation, introspection and quiet (think reading, journaling or napping)

Our retreat begins at 3pm on Friday and concludes with a closing circle Sunday followed by lunch together.

Whether you are new to meditation or have an established practice, this is an opportunity to deepen your mindfulness practice, increase self-awareness & self-compassion and enjoy being in community.
