Decompress, and revitalize just in time for back to school!
Join Above Average Yoga’s Trista Davis and Kat Boehm for a beautiful day of collective solitude at the Start of the North retreat center in St.Albert, AB on August 24 from 9:30-5pm. Use this as an opportunity to unplug and restore the mind and the body. No meditation experience required.
Our last retreat received rave reviews and many of the participants are excited to do it again.
So what does a silent retreat look like? Well the good news is that you are not just paying for 7 hours of straight silence! How it works is you will arrive around 9:30am for registration and find a comfortable place that you would like to situate yourself for the first seated meditation of the day.
At 10am we will all be seated and ready for practice. We will go over all the ground "rules" and then a teaching will be offered. After the teaching is offered you will meditate for a period of time until another teaching is offered and so on and so forth. We will be working with walking meditation, so you will get to go outside and be with nature, gentle beginner yoga, food meditation with a delicious vegetarian lunch, journal exercises, restorative yoga, breathing exercises, contemplation and we will even finish the day with some mantra work.
You will be able to talk to the retreat staff during the day if needed but it is not a time for socialization. Lunch will be a light vegetarian offering for which we will accommodate food allergies.
The investment of the retreat includes some take home worksheets and instructions to continue your meditation practices. Lunch and other surprises are also included.
