Deep Yin & Essential Oils: Autumn Equinox Urban Retreat

On this weekend of Autumn’s Equinox, the changing colors of the leaves and cooler breezes signal shifts all around us  It is a time to remind ourselves not to get swept up in the stress of change, but rather look more closely at what the season offers. We let go of summer’s excesses to make space for the harvest’s gifts and prepare for winter. So much change, so much opportunity.

Join Brandi and Susan for a day of letting go and creating space. We will combine conversation, pranayama, yin yoga, essential oils, journaling, and more; you will also leave with your own personal autumn oil blend.

Bring some water to drink and a snack if you’d like.  Pllease bring a journal or paper, and pen to write.

$55 in advance / $65 at the door

No late entry after 10 minutes / 48hr Cancelation Policy
