A Winter Yoga Retreat

Rene Johnson of Shanti Yoga is excited to return to Pure Awareness Retreat Center to host another amazing weekend full of yoga, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, amazing catered food from the Eco Cafe. You will also be building your own terrarium in the greenhouse to take home.... in anticipation of the coming of spring. 

You don't need any experience for any of the activities taking place. There are mats and props available for yoga, as well as snowshoes to borrow. If you would like to ski please bring your own or rent some cross country skis....the trails are so lovely. Please bring a glass container that you would like to build your terrarium in. We will each have an ample amount of materials to work with for building your terrarium, additional supplies will be available for purchase if you require more. All of our meals Saturday and Sunday will all be catered by the ECO cafe. 
*Please let us know if you have any allergies, or food preferences.

Leave the city behind and fully immerse in the splendor of nature, the enjoyment of delicious food, meet new people or bring a friend. When you return you will be relaxed, replenished and so glad you joined us!
