Reset, Renew, Release, Recharge

Revitalizing the Body, Mind, Heart, and Soul

1440 Multiversity 800 Bethany Drive Scotts Valley,CA 95066

Hidden tension in the body and mind can cause physical limitations, pain, trauma, fatigue, depression, and unhappiness. Join wellness coach and yoga instructor James Higgins for a mindful, insightful, and skillful meditative yoga practice weekend designed to engage you from the core of your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual center.

Through informed asana instruction, guided meditation, yoga nidra, pranayama, imagery and visualization, psychological inspiration, and periods of restorative rest, you will explore:

  • Moderately challenging asana sequences—within your capacity but designed to explore the threshold of your ability to focus, engage, release, let go, enjoy, and rest in a good-hearted way
  • Periods of meditative rest to support you in taking the necessary time to absorb and assimilate the deep work and gain clarity about your life direction
  • Discovering dormant resources of your inherent goodness through the gift of grace to lead the way through any resistances that may arise
  • Softening further into love, care, and kindness as the foundations of our spiritual work as yogis.
