As seasons change, so too does the environment around us. And as organisms inextricably bound to our ecosystem, we will inevitably feel that shift as well.
I have long been devoted to seasonality as a philosophy and I've found certain practices that help me embrace those internal changes throughout the year. Now, I'll be sharing what I've cultivated with you- my Ayurvedic rituals, herbal remedies (Herbal infused honey and herbal syrups) and self care practices. In addition, Tabitha Rose, a yoga instructor and seasonal chef, will share her knowledge of yoga, wellness, and cooking high vibrational meals.
We'll kick things off this New Year with a retreat in Idyllwild for the Winter Solstice on Jan 11 - 13, offering you three days filled with communal meals, music, yoga, and a workshop on herbal recipes for beauty and self-care. We want you to leave feeling refreshed, with blueprints tailor-made to maximize your well-being throughout the season. The property that will be hosting us for this magical three day weekend is surrounded by trees and boulders and truly gives you the secluded, mountain feel. Great place to unplug and recharge for this New Year. Many of the rooms are surrounded by balconies, with stunning views of the forest. This 6000 sq ft lodge is newly renovated cabin with 6 bedrooms, 2 living rooms and beautiful dining room. Open skies, mountain views and cozy cabin to take you right back to more simple times.
We'll pull practices from the Ayurvedic Doshas (Kapha, Pitta and Vata). This is the sister science to yoga, at its most ancient. Ayurveda – which comes from the Sanskrit “ayur,” meaning life, and “veda,” meaning science– literally means "the science of life." Sounds pretty important, doesn’t it? Ayurveda is oft overlooked in contemporary yoga but it is a true compliment that can greatly enhance your current practice. As a science, the benefits include disease treatment and prevention, improved energy, and overall well-being. The dietary aspects have the added bonuses of strengthening digestion, improving complexion, and shedding excess weight. With Ayurveda and yoga as the foundations of our retreat, we will also explore herbal remedies, seasonal eating habits and foods.
