Sunshine Yoga Retreat Weekend

Sunshine Yoga Retreat Weekend
Jun 19, 2014 - Jun 22, 2014

Join us as we connect with the energy of the summer sun and feel it charge our bodies, minds and hearts.

Translated from Latin, Solstice means “Sun Stands Still”. For several days before and after summer solstice, the sun’s noontime elevation is so high that it appears to stand still in the sky. Our weekend celebrates this transitional time of year with the practice of yoga, meditation, relaxation and connection to the fire energy in our own nature.

Facilitated by Tamika Schilbe and Carolyn Burke. Travel package provided by Shanti Yoga Retreat.
