Flow, Yin, and  Chant with Lana

A Summer Yoga Retreat at Shanti Retreat Centre

(To be confirmed- details to come): July 25-28th, 2019


Join Lana Sugarman for a spring renewal retreat which will nourish mind, body and spirit. Enjoy meditation, a morning active yoga practice (Jivamukti style), as well as an afternoon yin yoga practice. Saturday evening, Lana will share her passion and gift for kirtan.

Kirtan is the practice of call and response chanting. Guests will have the opportunity to share their voices, dance, or simply relax and receive the sound. It is like a meditation through music. With the repetition of the mantras we are able to get out of our heads and tap into a sense of ease and joy.

Jivamukti Yoga is creative vinyasa flow, with meditation, mantra, hand-on assists, and philosophy woven throughout the class.

Yin: Nourishing the Heart with Lucas Tensen (cello and kora)
Summer is the season of fire, and in Traditional Chinese Medicine relates to the organ of the Heart. Yin Yoga is a practice that allows us to slow down and turn inward. Poses are done close to the floor and are held for 2-5 minutes. In these long passive holds we affect change in our connective tissue, have an opportunity to practice mindfulness, and give ourselves a mini acupressure session. We will focus on poses that nourish the energy pathways of the Heart and Small Intestine organ pairing tapping into joy and compassion. Cool down and embrace stillness!

Vinyasa Pulse: Flow to the Beat of a Drum with Narada Wise
Join Lana and Narada for a Jivamukti-inspired practice with live drumming. A creative and expressive flow that will strengthen, open, and inspire. Expect a merging of mantra, movement, and music!
