🌹 We are so touched, delighted and grateful for all who gathered in the theme of Liquid Peace: Yoga and the Sacred Feminine. This weekend seemed to stop time, stretch time, and open time as we met in beingness, exploring so many facets of yoga, femininity, movement, stillness, song... the sparkling snow, giant trees, quiet forest trails and the ever present river flowing was the perfect setting for us all to unfold together. Thank you, we love you!!!
Those of you who joined us, what was your favourite part? What has stayed with you the most? 🌹

Looks SO FABULOUS!!! Hope you host many more...πŸ’šπŸ™πŸ₯°πŸ’–

Thank you so much for this powerful, healing and transformative weekend. The sacred space you four held us in was so dear and safe. The four of you are inspiring, strong and full of love. Wonderful examples of how to care for ourselves, each other and the world. My heart is still overflowing with gratitude for the peace we cultivated together and within. πŸ™β€οΈβœŒοΈ

I am feeling so grateful to all of the amazing women I got to spend time with this past weekend. The combination of practices and mindfulness was just what I needed! And the food was wonderful!

Truly epic beauty
