Restorative Yoga Weekend with Mikiala
November Friday 10th – Sunday 12th 2017
Immerse yourself in the spiritual energy of Taos, New Mexico, located in the Sangre de Cristo mountains, and capture the healing energies of Northern New Mexico. This unique retreat offers three days and two nights of restorative yoga, guided meditation, Japanese incense ceremony, pampering at the Living Spa and a farm to table dinner at the award winning La Tierra restaurant.
This Restorative Yoga Retreat comes at just the right time for you to recharge and destress. A time for deep rest, for non-doing, a time to restore vital life energy. Start the holiday season off with some YOU time. Restorative Yoga, through long held, prop supported postures and yogic breathing brings the entire being into a state of deep repose and release. Bringing health and clarity to your body and mind. Extra pillows and supports are provided to create a highly satisfying restorative experience. Deactivate the sympathetic nervous system with guided meditations and periods of deep relaxation. Plenty of personal time assures for rest, reflection and the total spa experience.
Over the past 20 years, Mikiala has found yoga to be the most powerful way to develop and maintain physical vitality, mental clarity and a joyful engagement with life. Searching for a way to deepen her own practice and a desire to share the many benefits of yoga with others, Mikiala completed the teacher-training program at one of the most proficient yoga schools in the county, YogaWorks. She holds a professional certification with Yoga Alliance. Her Yoga classes generally feature gentle flowing sequences, attention to alignment, and an appreciation for community and connection.
