Natural Awakenings Atlanta

Back to Nature Yoga Retreat April 19-21

Bison View Lodge in Helen, GA (Hosted by Crossroads Yoga)

Join us in this all-inclusive retreat that includes lodging, all meals, activities, and good times! 

In this immersive yoga retreat, we begin Friday, April 19th at 4 o’clock and end late Sunday morning. Each day, we’ll engage in an active “Yang” yoga practice alternating with more relaxed and internal “Yin” practices (mostly in the “wind-down” evening time). 

All practices are for all levels and all bodies. The concept of Yin and Yang is all about balance… and what better place to work on balance than a yoga retreat held in a ultra-quiet, beautiful setting with all of the luxuries and amenities! In between our Yin and Yang yoga practices, we’ll enjoy each other in community, nourish with healthy meals including an Ayurvedic “lunch and learn” (Ayurveda is the sister science of Yoga focusing on the bodily systems and diet). We’ll also explore different methods of meditation, allowing us to be guided within to reflect and access who we truly are… beneath the routine and roles we play on the surface of our every day lives. 

In the midst of this beautiful natural setting, we’ll enjoy opportunities to create beautiful things—both inside and out. Ultimately this will be YOUR time to “disconnect and unplug”… and journey back to your essential nature in nature. As for how we’ll spend our time together, we’re excited to offer you…
