Stress is the main source of physical, mental, and emotional suffering. Even though today’s lifestyle is filled with daily stressors, it is possible to manage and reduce it. Through yogic practices and time in nature you’ll learn just how to mitigate stress before it impacts your life. Join us for a weekend retreat dedicated to education about the effects of stress, while learning practical tools to relax your nervous system, calm your mind, and open your heart. These simple steps can help you reclaim a life of deep and lasting inner peace, regardless of the tides of life.


We are looking for karma yogis who would like to be of service during this event, even coming a day early or staying a day after.
