Practicing Ancient Healing Arts
In Harmony with The Cycles of Nature

Summer Immersion Retreat with Melina Meza & Chiara Guerrieri

July 5-10, 2020
Breitenbush Hot Springs, Oregon

The Summer Immersion Retreat is hosted by 8 Limbs Yoga Centers, a 500-hour RYT certified school, and invites yoga teachers and dedicated practitioners to join us to connect and gather with other like-minded practitioners. As students, we are always learning, filling our wells and receiving deeper insights through continued practice and study. As teachers, continued study allows us to expand our repertoire and more fully develop our voices and yogic lifestyles. As practitioners, we seek a sangha, or community, with whom we can share and celebrate our journey. Our goal this week is to provide a rich program and inclusive community to help you prosper – in your practice, studies and your career as a yoga teacher.

In this spirit, Yogis Unite will provide space for meaningful conversations, classes in therapeutic and advanced asana, art of teaching and sequencing, physical and energetic anatomy, non-violent communication, philosophy, Ayurveda and more.

 Melina Meza and Chiara Guerrieri (each with at least 23 years of teaching experience) will help you integrate your studies “off the mat” into daily life.
