Treat Yourself! A weekend retreat


I am thrilled to announce our second annual herbal and yoga retreat taking place March 16th - 18th, 2012. 

Awaken to the vitality of spring with a weekend of nourishing food, herbs and yogic presence. 

We will use food as medicine, preparing simple ayurvedic recipes and herbal teas, supplementing this with asana and pranayama practice, sauna time and silence. Support body and mind as we move into the season of heightened energy and activity! 



The retreat will be led by



Becky Studen, certified yoga teacher, has studied various types of yoga including Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Pre- and Post-natal, and Power Core and Yin yoga. Yoga has reminded her to breathe deeply when parenting, love her body and to take time to simply be.







 Rosalee de la Forȇt, traditional herbalist and Structural medicine Specialist. Rosalee is the author of dozens of articles and several ebooks on herbal healing.
