[Live Streamed] Pūrṇa | Wholeness: An At-Home Solstice Yoga Retreat
Dec 18, 2020| $430 – $480
Online Retreat with Claudette Evans & Nicole Bratt
In the Tantrik view, we are born whole and complete, and carry within us the entirety of creation. Pūrṇa, a Sanskrit word usually translated as perfection, wholeness, fullness or completeness, expresses this idea. It is human behavior to forget the divine gift of our existence. It’s also human nature to seek greater fulfillment beyond ourselves.
The arrival of the Winter Solstice offers us a fertile opportunity for introspection – to turn our attention inward and listen, notice, feel, and intentionally remember this truth so that we can become more fully alive. In this time of darkness, we invite you to take shelter in the depth and potency of practice, to relearn how to offer yourself back to yourself and return to the source of your inherent wholeness.
Join Claudette and Nicole for this unique online Winter Solstice yoga retreat experience – from anywhere in the world! Reflect, rest, and nourish yourself with 3 immersive days of yoga: centering active asana, meditation, Restorative practice, mantra, journaling, intention setting, and supportive community.
All retreat sessions will be held online using Zoom. Participants will receive the link, as well as a full prop list, in advance.

About the instructors: Nicole Bratt & Claudette Evans
Nicole, a Midwest native, is committed to holding space for students so that they may benefit from this elegant practice we know as yoga. She is deeply honored to be doing just that as the Studio Manager at Seattle Yoga Arts. Her life passion is cultivating vibrant and inclusive community wellness, and she is excited to bring her diverse background as a graphic designer, yoga teacher, event planner, photographer, volunteer coordinator, and small business owner to SYA.
As a group fitness instructor, Nicole explored yoga briefly in her 20s, but initially there was little resonance. When yoga crossed her path again in her 30s, she discovered she was ready to fully embrace its life-changing gifts. Her path led to completing both 200-hr and 500-hr teacher trainings at Yoga Tree San Francisco, and she now specializes in Restorative, gentle, therapeutic, and prenatal modalities. She is passionate about the power of stillness as a transformational experience, as well as an antidote to urban living. After 12+ years living, working, and studying in San Francisco, Nicole transplanted to our lush, beautiful Seattle. When she’s not at the studio, you are likely to find Nicole outdoors, listening to live music, creating art, making/eating delicious food, adventuring near and far, or taking a nap.
What to expect in Claudette’s classes: Claudette has a genuine passion for meeting students where they are, helping guide them toward an experience of greater strength and freedom, while allowing them to discover the wisdom that lies within their own bodies. You’ll find Claudette’s classes infused with her warm, integrative, and creative spirit, along with explorations in mantra and vibration. Her enthusiasm and curiosity are catching, and it’s clear that her teaching draws on her own love of physicality and mental engagement. Through a deft weaving of precise alignment, thoughtful insight, and a great sense of humor, Claudette’s classes create space for self-expression, clarity of focus, and the sheer joy of movement.
Main Influences/Styles/Traditions: Anusara, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Sanskrit. She also has been strongly influenced by Douglas Brooks, Christopher Hareesh Wallis, Christina Sell, Sianna Sherman, Amy Ippoliti, Ross Rayburn, Jason Crandell, and Meghan Currie.
