This empowering women’s retreat connects you to your inherent courageous heart through yoga, meditation, writing, art, and time in nature.
You are invited to join Jennifer Kreatsoulas and Kanjana Hartshorne at the scenic and peaceful Himalayan Institute May 1 to 3 for the Courageous Heart Yoga Retreat, where you will explore how to rebuild healthy and compassionate connections with your true self – body, heart, and soul.
At this year’s retreat you will explore how to cultivate and call on courage in your relationship with your body. No doubt it takes tremendous courage to feel kind toward our body in a world that thrives on unrealistic beauty ideals and external validation. We can lose our connection with our personal power and feel discontent with our body. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to teach simple yet powerful ways to practice compassion and connection with your body; experience more peace and grace in the unscripted chaos of life; develop mindfulness skills; and cultivate more appreciation for your unique values and qualities.
This retreat is appropriate for women who want to explore how to feel more confident and content in their bodies. Whether you struggle with body image because of your past, weight, race, size, ability, aging, illness, or more, we invite you to join us. No yoga experience is necessary.
Kanjana and Jennifer’s yoga classes are beginner-friendly, gentle, trauma-sensitive, and unique. Building upon the themes of the retreat, we use our bodies to turn inward, connecting to our innate courage, wisdom, and grace. Our participants often comment on how different our yoga classes are compared to what’s offered in their community. The focus here is less on fitness and more on connecting with the self.
