Living from the Heart: 4-Night Yoga & Writing Retreat

With Michelle

August 12 - 16, 2019



Imagine living a life you love. Coming on this retreat is one of the baby steps you can take to make it happen. Invite in what you want and let go of what no longer serves. Do what makes you happy. Figure out what makes your heart blossom and soul shine.

May we live from the heart. And may our heart-centered actions provide benefit to all beings without exception.

Sacred Lake Atitlan is a magical place for healing, growing and incubating dreams. Walking the path of beauty, we are ever grateful to the magic miracle of life happening now. We realize that every moment we have the choice to open, expand, heal and grow.

In an intimate group of new friends, through the shared group practices of yoga, breathing, meditation, relaxation, and tuning in, we will align with our heart’s deepest desires and watch our unique purpose for being on the planet unfold.

Together, we will stretch, flow, sit, stand, breathe, dance, sweat, swim, and be amazed. Clarify your vision, purpose and truth by tapping your creative flow and inspiring new growth. Join the circle as we recharge with a heart-opening yoga practice designed to accommodate every body and write down the chakras. Sharing is always encouraged and optional.

Open to all levels from novice to expert. Take home healthy habits and empowering practices that will enhance your personal well being and nurture your intuitive intelligence.
