Study Restorative Yoga while experiencing the peace, quiet and beauty that is Breitenbush Hot Springs.

You’ll spend five days and four nights relaxing, soaking in the healing hot springs and learning in this 20-hr, Yoga Alliance certified training. Retreat open to all practitioners: interested students and teachers alike.

Join Janell & Jen to discuss the physiology of stress, the endocrine system and the detrimental effects stress has on our health and well being.  You’ll learn the science of relaxing, the energetics of slowing down, and find ways to use these transformative concepts in your own practice or impart them to your community.

Through direct experience, practice teaching and feedback, you will gain with the ability to confidently teach restorative and quiet practices, as well as incorporate them into your own practice.
