CORINA BENNER August 11-13
Slow Time Down Yoga Retreat
August 11 – August 13
Friday, 3 pm to Sunday, 2 pm
Join Corina Benner on a quest to slow down the apparent movement of time and relish all the sweetness summer has to offer.
This retreat will be the most perfect opportunity to abide in the center of your life, neither planning the future nor reviewing the past. By disengaging from the relentless commentary in the mind, opening through all the senses, and being attentive to details you just may discover the satisfaction and fulfillment you’ve always been looking for … hidden in plain sight and longing to be noticed.
Together we will practice 8-hours of yoga in (4) 2-hour sessions, including yin yoga, slow-flow vinyasa yoga, restorative yoga, pranayama (breathing exercises), and meditation.
The rest of the time you are welcome to frolic and float in the swimming hole, soak in the hot tub, stroll on the stunning property, meander through the meditation labyrinth, play badminton, horseshoes, or scrabble, pick up a hula hoop or a good book, lounge in a hammock, or whatever else tickles your fancy.
The meals are exquisite, largely sourced from the Heathen Hill garden and prepared with love and sass by Susan and Lisa. Please be sure to email them with any dietary restrictions so they can accommodate your needs. And be sure to B.Y.O. whatever you like to drink with dinner and after. Accommodations are a mix of single, double or triple occupancy options offered in two different houses; yoga, meals, use of the grounds, sheets & towels are all included. Pricing starts at $625.

Corina Benner incubates super-heroes. As a yoga and meditation teacher she focuses on awakening students’ inner-teacher; connecting them with their innate wisdom, strength, resilience and fortitude. While helping them live boldly with authenticity, passion, humor and joy, she reminds seekers of the astonishing nature of this miraculous existence and the extraordinary beauty of one’s exquisite human body. Her cheerful demeanor, positive vibrations and contagious optimism empower students of all levels to practice with enthusiasm, while her detailed instruction, poetic language and intelligent sequencing create a safe space for students to explore the landscapes of their body, mind, heart and soul. She has enjoyed teaching vinyasa yoga since 1999 and yin yoga since 2004, and mindfulness/awareness meditation since 2015, and she continues to teach workshops and teacher trainings locally, nationally and internationally. From 2002-2020, she owned and operated Wake Up Yoga, one of the original yoga centers in Philadelphia and has had amazing experiences as a teacher, business owner and perhaps most of all, a student herself. She is excited to collaborate with organizations such as Yoga International, the Penn Center for Mindfulness, and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, as well as yoga studios near and far. While she may have actually saved a few lives during her twenty-two years as a yoga teacher, mostly she prides herself on helping to bring people back to life.
