The weekend includes well-rounded power vinyasa yoga flows, gentle yoga with twists to purify the body, and important yoga teachings on diet, detoxification, and nutrition to help you live a life full of vitality.

Through engaging experiential sessions, you will learn to:

  • Build strength, balance, and flexibility during physical practice

  • Cultivate joy through meditation
  • Use the practices of yoga to inspire your daily life.

The weekend kicks off Friday night with a warm welcome from Travis and a well-rounded power vinyasa class to prepare you for deeper things to come!

Saturday morning opens with Travis sharing his philosophy on diet, detoxification, and nutrition for living a life full of vitality. As well, you will learn different pranayama and meditation techniques to develop strategies for stress management. After this lecture and discussion, Travis will lead you through a gentle class with an extra dosage of twists to purify the body, followed by a sweet and deep floor series focusing on longer stretches and holds.

On Saturday afternoon, Travis welcomes Bryan Kest—known throughout the world for his style of integrating body, mind, and spirit—to lead a well-rounded asana flow that invigorates the body and helps you practice developing a calm, less reactive state of mind. In Bryan’s Power Yoga™ class, you are encouraged to focus on the process and not the end result.

On Sunday, the weekend will end with a bang, as Travis leads you through an absolutely epic yoga flow.
