silent-Retreats

Yoga and meditation retreats in silence with asana pranayama and meditation

 

Jenny offers yoga and meditation retreats throughout the year in beautiful locations throughout the Northwest. Retreat offers a spiritual path to re-connect with ourselves, others, and the natural world. These connections have the capacity to nourish us in a world that can feel overwhelming.  Drawing from studies in bodywork, mindfulness meditation, psycho-spiritual therapy, Yoga, and Buddhism, students are guided into deep connection with their inner resources. When we are resourced, we are better fit to meet life's unavoidable challenges. 

Grounded in meditation, retreats include sitting periods, yogic breathing, movement class, and relational mindfulness exercises through which we engage with others in practice. Retreats are held is social silence. There is no verbal interaction with participants outside of the classroom. All meals, walks, and time between classes are kept quiet to deepen our inner experience.

One of the most special things about Jenny as a teacher is her vast understanding of the yoga system. While her knowledge of asana is deeply sophisticated, it is her experience with meditation, pranayama and mindfulness practice that leave me so inspired after studying with her. I have taken her classes for years and been lead on retreat by Jenny and truly value the way she guides her students towards peace, not just within ourselves but with the world around us.
