Melina will share gentle summer Seasonal Vinyasa Yoga classes, introduce Ayurvedic practices for self-care, and teach Yin Yoga to prepare your body and mind for meditation. Baxter will be offering tools for healthy aging, and to help you end your summer feeling grounded, flexible and strong as you head into the fall season.
Our yoga getaway will be perfect way to fire up your practice while simultaneously keeping your inner agni (fire) cool during this hot season. There is no better place to do it than the stunning Ratna Ling Retreat Center! Located just 90 miles north of San Francisco in the redwood forests of the Sonoma County coast, this getaway is ideal for local Bay Area folks as well as those coming from farther afield!
Get ready to be amazed by what new beauty you’ll see around you, and have fun learning ways to stay inspired while exploring your yoga, meditation, and photography practice with a phone or digital camera. Classes will include photography exercises to hone your innate capacity for wonder and awe.
We’ll start each day with a morning meditation and yoga practice before setting out on our outdoor adventure for photography or awe walks. In the evening, we’ll meet up to review our images and learn more about editing, composition, focus, and adding artistic flare to your photos.
This is a fun-filled adventure to warm your soul, enliven your body and inspire new discoveries, that will help your creativity blossom as we dive into the heart of summer.
