The Essence of Yoga: A Weekend Retreat

With Jenn Russo

November 22 - 24, 2024

COVID POLICY: For your safety and ours, we require proof of vaccination AND negative test result from all visitors to Ratna Ling Retreat Center. We wish to provide peace of mind for all of our residents and guests.

We welcome back Master Teacher Jenn Russo of Healdsburg for a special yoga retreat at Ratna Ling to celebrate the Autumn in the Redwoods!

In this weekend retreat, we will focus on using the breath to strengthen our practice and experience a lasting peace. Afternoons will be a slow flow/restorative practice, focused on calming, centering and relaxation. The morning practice will emphasize movement initiated by breath. This vinyasa practice is vigorous, yet full of ease, balancing our lives both on and off of the mat. Whether you are coming to relax after harvest, or before the holidays or to just take a break for yourself, this weekend will leave you filling restored and renewed. There will be time on Saturday for an afternoon hike, nap or massage.

Retreat includes: accommodations Friday and Saturday night; meals- Friday dinner through Sunday brunch; 2 slow flow/ restorative yoga practices and 2 vinyasa yoga practices.
