Olympic NP offers everything from rugged coastlines with tide pools, glaciated mountains, temperate rainforests and even hot springs. During our stay we will have the opportunity to explore all three areas.
Each morning before brunch you will have the opportunity to practice yoga with Sarah. Morning practice will include breathwork or pranayama, meditation or dhyana and asana or poses. We will take our time exploring on our mats an into our internal world. Sarah will be guiding you through practice each morning and will offer modifications to make poses accessible for all. Simply come as you are and we will support you in your practice from there.
Ashley will be cultivating healthful meals sourced with local fresh ingredients for you during your stay. You will be provided with a selection of teas and coffee alongside light snacks before practice. Brunch will immediately follow morning practice, dinner will be held each evening once we return from our daily excursion or workshop offering.
More about Sarah…
I practice and teach because yoga gives permission to be yourself, uncovered, and beautifully raw. I love the honesty of the yoga practice and how it demands self acceptance, which is truly the heart of this practice. Beyond yoga I also lead adventure retreats which range from traditional yoga retreats to backpacking events. These events are designed to assist you in cultivating a deeper connection with your inner wisdom, empowering you to live your life intentionally. I’ve been teaching yoga since 2015, gaining certification in 2016 from Moksha Yoga in Chicago and currently have over 1,000 hours of training. My mission in this community is to make the world of yoga more accessible to all through classes and events. Showing students this is a practice to access the language of the heart not about touching your toes.
