“Knowledge is only a rumour until it lives in the muscle.”
~Asaro Tribe of Indonesia

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned after 14 years of teaching is that in order to take care of others, I must find ways to take care of myself. I’ve also learned that in order to support the people in my life to live in a balanced way, I have to embody practices that help me to do the same–these practices have to “live in my muscles.” This mini retreat is designed to help rest and reflection live in our muscles so that we can be more present for others.
I’ve been lucky to attend different retreats over the years and whether they were one day or many days, the time to pause, reflect, and regroup was always so valuable and most definitely had ripple effects out into my “normal” life. It’s often difficult for teachers and parents to find the time to get away, so this urban retreat was designed with this reality in mind. Imagine a day to rest, practice yoga, meditate, reflect on where you are and where you’d like to go…all just a subway ride away! I’ve filled the schedule with guided, nourishing practices, silence, and time for self-reflection. The retreat takes place in a beautiful studio space overlooking a ravine in the east end of Toronto.
