Practicing Ancient Healing Arts
In Harmony with The Cycles of Nature
Cultivating Everyday Awe: Yoga, Nature and You!
with Melina Meza and Baxter Bell, MD
July 23 – 30, 2022
Feathered Pipe Ranch, Helena – Montana
When we experience awe in our lives, whether from being in nature, hearing an incredibly beautiful piece of music, or at the end of a sublime yoga practice, we are both overwhelmed by the power of the moment and our limited experience of “self” is expanded. And it feels incredible! Now, modern research is confirming the benefits of regular doses of “awe” on our health and well-being. This 7-day retreat will help you cultivate practices and opportunities to bring more awe into your everyday life through your yoga practice, guided experiences in nature, immersion in sound and more!
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.
*25 Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Program credit hours are available for this retreat.
