Spring into summer with self care tools for a happier, healthier life.

June 23 – 25, 2023

This Ayurveda and Yoga Retreat is an experiential retreat, open to all who are ready to commit to a happier, healthier life.

Spring is a time to refresh and renew; this retreat nears the Summer Solstice when we transition from spring to summer, offering the greatest support for this shift with abundant energy.

By attending this educational, three-day intensive, you will understand yourself on a deeper level and know how to move forward feeling vibrant and healthy.

In this packed weekend you will uncover:

  • your unique constitution, honoring your strengths and the gifts you have to offer
  • strategic movement and yoga asana practices to release abundant energy, clarity and focus
  • how food affects your mood and can be used as mental health medicine
  • how to leverage seasonal foods and cleansing practices to support your natural detox system (mind and body)
  • how your thoughts create your reality and root cause psychology
  • what is no longer serving you and subtle shifts you will make to change your trajectory
  • morning meditation and breathing practices to align your energy
  • evening meditation tools to promote contentment & manifest the future you want

Come prepared to learn, grow and play!

“Natasha has an exceptional ability to read the room and adapt her presentation to the needs of participants. She has a deep understanding of the Ayurvedic wisdom tradition and a palpable desire to share what she knows, with a ‘servant’s heart’. Her workshops are logically organized and with a gentle flow she moves the group through unfamiliar terrain using information, example and practice. Every detail of the retreat was thoughtfully arranged to subtly reinforce concepts and the feeling of living life with the benefit of being in sync with the body’s natural rhythms. Natasha is a fiery and compassionate leader with so much to offer the ‘student of contentment’. If you have the chance to spend time with her, and accept her extraordinary offerings you will be very fortunate and grateful as I am.”

“Ayurveda is to free the mind which is trapped in the body. 

Yoga is to free the soul, which is trapped in the mind.”

~Baba Hari Dass
