This retreat will meet you where you are at on your life’s journey. Katrina Mailloux and Lori Bower provide yoga instruction to all levels of yoga students creating a comfortable and safe environment for students to practice and enjoy their experience.
As the founder and creative director at Brown Dog Yoga, Katrina has spent 6 years curating a vinyasa-style practice that gives students a purposeful and meaningful experience. We will begin our days together with an all levels yoga practice that will challenge your mind, body and soul. Every practice will begin with an intention to guide us through our day. To allow enough time for rest and inner work, on certain evenings, we will participate in restorative yoga and meditation with Lori Bower. Lori is an Urban Zen Integrative Therapist and Master Reiki Trainier. Evening practices will be a combination of Gentle Hatha, Deep Stretching, Yin, Reiki, and Restorative Yoga. A special “Finding Your Life’s Purpose” Workshop is included in this retreat.
