The Pleasure of Possibility: A Deep Dive Yoga Retreat

November 04 - November 06, 2022

What if anything and everything is possible and only as limited as your ability to dream?

The problem?

We are discouraged from dreaming big. We are told our dream is impractical, unrealistic, audacious, even. So we assume dreaming big is for someone else. We give up, despite the fact that it is within our reach.

What if you could allow yourself to imagine what is possible? What if you could envision your life evolving in whatever way you desire, large or small?

New to dreaming like this?

Every great invention started in the imagination of someone who dared to dream it.

Every breakthrough was born from a place of possibility.

In this weekend workshop, we use the yoga mat as a laboratory to gather evidence of what is possible. In your poses, you will learn to disobey your habitual response of I cant do thiswhen things get hard. You will create a new habit--celebrating what you can do! Nothing is too small.

What to expect:

  • Renewed sense of strength and intelligence in your body
  • Newfound appreciation for what your body can do
  • Laughing through your stumbles
  • Celebrating your wins

Classes will include meditation, breath work, abdominal work, vinyasa, long-held standing poses and therapy ball work. This retreat is mainly yoga asana and is open to students that are willing to be challenged on and off the mat.
