TRUE NATURE: Re-Connecting with our Essence

A 3-night Wellness Retreat with Kelly Sunrose to reconnect with our true essence with our through meditation, movement and breath.
 
 
When we increase our capacity for attention and attune the senses, we can more readily receive healing from the elements that surround and fill us: earth, water, fire, air & space. This retreat will invite a bone-deep knowing of our innate connection with nature. During our time together, we will engage in both active and restorative yoga movements, pranayama, meditation and mantra. In addition to this deeply practical work, Kelly will lead lecture and discussion on how the practices relate back to traditional yoga texts and the role of each element in yoga philosophy. At least one of our practice gatherings will take place outdoors, so please bring seasonally-appropriate outerwear. Participants will leave with tools for nourishing each layer of the self with & through the elements.

MORE ABOUT THE HOST:

Sweethome has studied Yoga since 1993. She approaches the practice of yoga and life with devotion and awe. Her style is unique and dynamic, poetically blending vinyasa with yoga philosphy, chanting, pranayama, and meditation. Her desire is to inspire all to experience life with compassion, patience and reverence. Within the Portland-based studios where she teaches (North Portland Yoga, SunGate Studio, and Yoga Bhoga), Sweethome has become notorious for her instinctive ability to nurture, guide and challenge her students through an impeccable combination of both a spiritual and physical practice.

Sweethome’s dedication to the equality, peace and well-being of all sentient beings is felt within each of her classes. After 25 years of teaching, her classes incorporate her learnings from key teachers in her life (Colleen Swantner, Sharon Gannon, David Life and Tias Little, Michael Stone and many more), as well as her connection to music/sound and Qigong.

In addition to her studies with Sharon Gannon at the Yasodhara Ashram in Canada, another notable journey for Sweethome was in 2010 when she traveled to India to study vedic chanting at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram. Sound and vibration have a huge influence her classes, workshops and retreats, as well as within her ongoing journey of self inquiry.
