Join Eliza, Emily, and Ingrid for a 5-day, 4-night intimate experience in the Blue Ridge mountains outside of Asheville, NC.  The purpose of this retreat is to provide you with an opportunity to relax & reset in this gorgeous setting at Bend of Ivy Lodge, where you’ll stay, practice, and enjoy meals together.  Morning Vinyasa practices will energize you for the day while allowing you to connect to yourself through breath and movement.   Each morning asana practice will be followed by self inquiry and group discussion.  Journal prompts throughout the retreat will invite moments to pause for reflection, explore and determine what you want to create space for in your life, and what you are ready to leave behind.  You’ll have time to rest and time for activities in the middle of the day.  In the evenings you can return to your mat to restore and replenish with the calming and grounding practices of Yin, Yoga Nidra, and Meditation.
