Treat Yourself! A weekend retreat April 2013

Spring Retreat

Body & Mind Cleanse Weekend

at Skalitude Retreat, Methow Valley, WA
April 19 - 21, 2013

I am thrilled to announce our third annual spring herbal and yoga retreat taking place April 19th - 21st, 2013. 

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.

What previous participants have shared... 

"Skalitude is the perfect place for a retreat. The berm house is so comfortable and the lodge is cozy and perfect for retreat gatherings. They prove that simple meals are not boring or tasteless. We experienced incredible meals from very gracious hosts. The sauna is wonderful as are the beautiful grounds. A very restorative experience." 

"This was a great recharge. A very generous education and healthy break. Highly recommended for anyone that wants to pay attention to their health and well-being." 

Dear Rosalee,
A week past the autumn cleanse and I am still feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. 
I am so excited with the knowledge we received that I have been sharing your handout and links with many family with friends.
So looking forward to attending another class. 
Thank you !
Marilyn Kopansky
