There will be plenty of free time for hiking, canoeing, sauna, massage, reading and relaxing lakeside and fireside, and enjoying quiet reflective time or the company of friends.  Our intention is that this retreat is not just time away. Retreat is sacred space from which to view yourself and your life clearly.   We will explore the practices and wisdom teachings of yoga, as a means to realizing your innate capacity for meaning, freedom and joy within life.  

The Place: Camp du Nord, near Ely, MN.  A stones throw from the Boudary Waters, Camp du Nord is set amongst the pine, maple and birch forest alongside Lake Burntside.  It has been a natural place of retreat, relaxation and reflection for more than 50 years.

The Yoga: We will practice each morning and afternoon.  Morning sessions will consist of an invigorating asana, pranayama and meditation practice.  Afternoon sessions will focus on the subtler aspects of yoga, including: restorative postures, pranayama, meditation, self-reflection, yoga philosohpy and dharma.
