zzz – Labor Day Yoga Retreat in the Shenandoah Valley, Sept. 4-7


Transition Seasons with Intention.

GET OUTTA TOWN: Give yourself a marvelous gift at the end of your busy summer. Join us to celebrate the end of summer and welcome fall with a weekend getaway that will leave you feeling physically rejuvenated, mentally awake, and ready for the coming change of seasons. We’ll gather at a luxurious, mountain-view property amidst the greenery in Luray, VA, September 4-7, 2015. The transition between summer and fall is the perfect time to change your pace and refresh your inner resources.

Yoga District’s much-loved teachers, Cara George and Marci Moberg, will lead the Labor Day Retreat in Virginia’s beautiful Shenandoah Valley that will honor transition, but also celebrate you.

We’ll practice yoga, meditation, and guided relaxation, eat delicious vegan meals*, enjoy the hot tub, listen to music, chat or play games around a cozy fire, relax and have fun. The weekend is an opportunity to let go, have fun, and celebrate your natural, centered state so that we can move into fall feeling present and alive! Throughout the weekend, you will have the opportunity to workshop poses and ask lots of questions about asana and meditation. We’ll be staying in a luxurious, mountain-view property in Luray, Virginia (approx. 2 hours drive from Washington DC). *Please bring your own snacks.
