Title: Divine Play in the Great Outdoors with Brenna Padesky & Rikard Skogberg- June 25-27
Location: Heathen Hill
Description: Lila (or Leela) is a Sanskirt word which literally translates to mean “play”. Discover how a sense of play (and a sense of humor) can put the joy back into your asana practice. Whether it’s standing on your feet, standing on your hands, working by yourself, or working with a fellow yogi, lightness in your heart and smile on your face can take you miles in understanding how your practice on the mat ripples out to create fulfillment in your life.
Join us for a delicious weekend away from the city. We will meet up late Friday morning and road trip upstate to Heathen Hill in Franklin, NY. Once there, enjoy a weekend of sweaty morning vinyasa with Rikard, evening slow flow and meditation with Brenna, and a taste of Thai Yoga massage threaded throughout. In your free time you can jump in the swimming hole, chase the resident chickens, or catch up on your reading.
