Our campus is closed in 2020. But we're still here for you. Join Omega Conversations with favorite teachers, and our private  Facebook Group community.

Yoga is known to calm the body and regulate the nervous system, but not all yoga classes make us feel that way. If you’re looking for a slow-paced, self-nurturing approach to this ancient tradition, join this weeklong workshop and discover the softer side of yoga.

Learn various techniques and postures rooted in yin yoga, restorative yoga, yoga nidra, and mindful slow flow. Explore a variety of meditations, journaling exercises, and breathwork to add to your self-care routine. Essential oils enhance the experience of this retreat by providing aromatherapy that matches the intention of each pose or practice.

Return home with a renewed sense of self, greater awareness of your personal stress triggers, and practical tools to practice self-care.

No previous yoga or meditation experience is necessary; all practices can be modified for all levels. Essential oils are optional; anyone may opt out of aromatherapy at any time.

Faculty recommends you read the following books in preparation for the course:

  • Yoga Nidra for Complete Relaxation and Stress Relief by Julie Lusk
  • The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga: The Philosophy and Practice of Yin Yoga by Bernie Clark

Bring an eye pillow and journal.
