Pilgrimage of the Heart Yoga > Workshops > Half-Day Yoga Retreat – Fall Equinox: Cultivating Balance

with Heather Fenwick & Sujantra McKeever

Date: Sunday, September 18, 2022      Time: 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Location: Normal Heights - East Room

The Autumn Equinox signifies the balance of day and night: a time for shedding that which no longer serves us, and making space for the newness of life. Give yourself the gift of self-care as we transition into the fall season.

Join Heather and Sujantra for yoga, meditation, and sound healing to explore the theme of balance – letting go and being open to more peace and well-being in our daily lives.

Schedule for the day:

9:00 – 9:30 AM | Introductions and getting to know each other. The retreat is limited to 24 people. Our goal is to offer you a space to learn, grow, enjoy yoga, and get to know others.

9:30 -10:45 AM | All Levels Yoga class led by Heather. This is the longest practice of the day and we recommend that you don’t eat too much right before coming to the retreat.

10:45 – 11:30 AM | Exploring yoga philosophy as it pertains to our daily lives, followed by chanting with harmonium and meditation guided by Sujantra.

11:30 – 12:30 PM | Silent, mindful lunch (Please bring your own food). This silent lunch allows for a feeling of community while eating without socializing, which creates deep harmony and presence. Once you finish lunch you are welcome to take a walk around the neighborhood, journal, read, or just relax.

12:30- 1:30 PM | Dharma Talk on the significance of the Autumnal Equinox as it pertains to holistic medicine theories of Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine. The talk will be facilitated by Heather and includes breakaways into smaller groups to share and get to know each other.
