Join Micheline Berry & Joey Lugassy for their Esalen Summer Yoga & the Arts Retreat to beautiful Big Sur this weekend!
The Dharmic journey towards actualizing our life art and allowing it to thrive in the world is made easier by learning how to cultivate a momentum-building Flow. This is the essence of Vinyasa. We meet ourselves where we are and take the journey inward-out with courage, patience and authenticity. It is from this place of embodiment that our most fulfilling life art emerges.
In addition to hours soaking in Esalen’s bluffiside mineral hot springs, Micheline’s annual Summer Retreat offers an opportunity to quickly rejuvenate, deepen your practice and connect to your own body as source material for your life art as we explore the mult-dimensional art of Vinyasa and the moving poetry of your own body in flow.
