Fall Yoga Retreat: Just as You Are

Autumn trees with orange and gold leaves

Friday, October 12, 2018  -  Sunday, October 14, 2018

GilChrist Retreat Center 56265 Day Rd Three Rivers, MI

Underneath the routine of doing and expectation, a gracious joy for simply being awaits. Fall is a glorious time to slow down and revel in the beauty of being enough. Open landscapes, cozy cabins, and sounds of nature are a balm to busyness, affirming you are enough, just as you are. With this retreat, you are invited to reflect and relax into who we are as the hustle and bustle melts away. Poetry, nature, solitude, and togetherness will cocoon this special time of unwinding and unfolding layers to bask in your inner light.

About the Facilitator

With a Master's degree in Communication from Western Michigan University and an intensive 200 hour RYT training with Karina Ayn Mirsky at Sangha Yoga, Marne strives to cultivate creative ways to integrate communication studies with yoga philosophy and practice.
