Namaslay® Personal Growth Yoga Retreat in Italy, Fall 2019

from 150.00

This retreat from Oct 21 - 26, 2019, will take place in Bolzano, Italy. This retreat is about deep introspective study through the integration of the Yamas and Niyamas for ultimate self-care, self-study, and self-growth. It’s for people who need some time away from the stressors in their lives to dive a little deeper and reconnect with themselves and the world around them. Through workshops in mindfulness, meditation, journaling and of course yoga, you’ll be lovingly encouraged to explore what’s going on with you, you’ll be guided through sifting through the “stuff” you might be carrying with you that’s perhaps holding you back, and you’ll be challenged to get outside of your comfort zone to emerge the best version of yourself. More details about the entire retreat can be found here. Completion of all the workshops at this training will also grant Registered Yoga Teachers a total of 13.5 Continuing Education Hours with the Yoga Alliance.
