Join Emma Kate Veader and Christianna Kohler for a weekend of yoga, Ayurvedic cooking and self-care. Begin each day with an all-levels yoga class focused on connecting to our elemental makeup and realigning our rhythms to their natural state of flow. This retreat will focus on Ayurvedic and yogic practices to help one ground and find stability within the self while remaining light and playful at heart. This weekend will be an introductory and there is no need to have previous experience with Ayurveda or Yoga to attend this course. 

In addition to daily yoga, you’ll spend the weekend enjoying interactive lectures, yoga nidra, plant-based cooking classes where we will focus on seasonal, ayurvedically influenced dishes, appetizers and elixirs you can bring to Thanksgiving or your next gathering. Saturday night we’ll celebrate with a kirtan and dancing while enjoying the libations from the ayurvedic elixirs class earlier that day. After a Sunday brunch, you’ll leave with multiple recipes, self-care rituals and practices as well as a community of new friend.
