Yoga of Self Healing Retreat is a program designed to develop healthy relationships. Most spiritual practices talk about the Self or spirit as perfection. Our limited self, or ego sense is distracted, seeking to find happiness and peace from unhealthy relationships. These can lead to; depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and seeking love through codependency , substance abuse, eating disorders or any disruption to the flow of life leading to destructive habits and behaviors. This retreat will guide you with Gentle Asana Techniques through the system of the chakras, deep breathing exercises for mindful awareness, Yoga Nidra for deep relaxation of body and mind, discussions on the 12 steps of recovery, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, and the Gunas which give us tools to heal the limited self by developing Self-aware healthy relationships.
