Program Description

Busy? This is the program for you!

Put things on pause for a few days and learn practical skills for creating a more productive, sustainably balanced, and creative life.

We all want to be real. We want to show up authentically and enjoy healthy and fulfilling relationships at work and at home. But it is challenging to make daily choices that support well-being and to express ourselves powerfully and compassionately in alignment with our principles.

Through an immersion in yoga, Ayurvedic life skills, and a deep dive into authentic communication, you will develop your ability to better hear your body’s messages, make choices that allow you to thrive, and connect more easefully in your personal and professional relationships.

Come learn:

  • Yoga practices for enhancing well-being
  • A multi-dimensional, Ayurvedic plan for working in a more balanced way
  • Strategies for eating well in the work environment
  • Communication practices and language alchemy for changing the belief structure that keeps you stressed and imbalanced.

Making balanced, life-enhancing choices is not only healthy for your body and mind, but also has an excellent return on investment—as a result of what you learn and experience, you will feel more connected to yourself and others, experience less stress, and be able to express what is on your heart and mind.
