2020 Foresight Vision:
Intro Mindful Resilience, Clarity and Strength for a New Decade
Saturday, January 25 , 10 am - 4 pm
My Yoga Barn, Cedar Creek, Texas (near Bastrop)
It’s not just a new year, it’s a new decade!
How do you “see” yourself heading into the new year? It is often said that hindsight is 20/20; however, with some mindful practices and intention-setting, you can have 20/20 foresight—that is, clarity and a great vision for the year ahead.
Join Lisa Feder, for a day-long retreat at My Yoga Barn, in Cedar Creek, Texas. Inspired by her book A Year of Mindful Wellness, and her passion for iRest Yoga Nidra, we will approach the new year and decade in a fresh way. We don’t need to fix ourselves because we aren’t broken. However, a new perspective can help us move forward in ways that will develop resilience, clarity, and strength for a fun and fulfilling year.
We will use the 10-step iRest Yoga Nidra format to set up our discussion and practices. iRest Yoga Nidra is an accessible and healing form of guided meditation, relaxation, and inquiry. iRest supports the regulation of the nervous system, and clarity of body, mind, and heat. It helps us cultivate resilience for life.
There will be gentle movement, time in nature, time to journal, time to share, and time to be silent. Our main practices will be of meditative inquiry in which we will listen to any messengers arriving in the form of thoughts, sensations, and energy.
This retreat is open to everyone, and no Yoga experience is necessary. The intention is to share practices and tools that will encourage deep relaxation and a sense of mindful wellness that will go with you from the retreat into your daily life. You will learn to access your inner peace, even in stressful situations and have a plan to maintain perspective and balance, no matter what challenges come your way.
A day to retreat, just far enough away from home, and for just enough time, to truly take a pause and take care of yourself. You will have the tools and practices to move you into the new year and decade with foresight, resilience, clarity, and strength!
Workshop is full!
