Practicing Ancient Healing Arts
In Harmony with The Cycles of Nature
The Power of Nature 2.0: The Potential of Yoga and Ayurveda
with Melina Meza and Baxter Bell, MD
August 15-21, 2020
Feathered Pipe Ranch, Helena – Montana
The Ranch Always Delivers! With the amazing week that all experienced for the Power of Nature 2019 from the powerful weather changes to Forest Bathing and Impermanent Art in Nature, we decided to expand this perfect match for the Feathered Pipe Ranch, with an upgraded 2.0 version!
Melina and Baxter can attest to the power of nature to connect us with our authentic selves, especially at places like the Ranch. So our week together will be an opportunity to take advantage of the natural environment to help us rest, restore and recharge, with walking meditations in nature, yoga practices and talks out on the front lawn when weather permits, evening hikes to the Skye Ranch and beyond.
We also know that our everyday lives don’t always have the time or access to this kind of powerful setting on a regular basis. The good news is that Ayurveda and Yoga for Healthy Aging practices can help us bridge those times away from nature with powerful tools to improve our overall well-being and help us to recover in times of greater need. Our practice sessions twice a day will focus on sharing the most relevant practices for you to take back home with you to maintain the reboot that the Ranch will provide.
And as in past years, we will enjoy silent mornings until the start of the morning class.
*30 Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Program credit hours are available for this retreat.
