I went on my first yoga retreat last weekend and what a wonderful experience! We also had 24 hours of silence on Saturday so we could go inward and reflect. I loved it! We did meditation and yoga sessions but other than that we were free to read, journal, go for a walk or whatever.
It was a very special experience and I feel like it really cleared away lots of questions I've had lately and helped me to focus much better.
Our Tai Chi instructor has a retreat in Colorado in the summer. Back when we could actually afford to go, it started on the first week of school. That's a no-no for teachers! Now,it is the week before school, and we just can't afford it. That's sad.
I was just talking in my college class about Kripalu and it reminded me of how much I adored it there. I wish it was less expensive. I need to find ways to incorporate that same relaxed feeling more fully in my daily life.
