Spring Renewal Retreat with Three Birds Yoga Studio
Spring 2020: April 21st - 24th
“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? Mary Oliver
This Spring, treat yourself to a very special four days to renew, relax and re-energize with yoga, meditation and delicious food and wine in the stunning finger lakes region of NY.
Imagine two yoga classes each day (one vinyasa and one yin), morning and evening guided meditation, healthy and delicious farm to table meals and luxurious accommodations at The Inn at Aurora and plenty of time to explore the natural beauty and wineries of this beautiful location.
About the Finger Lakes
Located about 3.5 hours from New Jersey, this area is defined by 11 finger-shaped lakes running north to south. It’s renowned for its natural scenic beauty, great outdoors, cultural richness, small town charm, and culinary splendor. The finger lakes offers access to more than 100 wineries that show the beauty of New York’s premier cool-climate wine region. Hiking trails, lakeside beaches, and gorgeous waterfalls are the ideal setting for a springtime retreat.
About the Yoga (all are optional)
A vigorous morning practice with Christina in the beautiful studio located right on the premises at the Inn. A wonderful opportunity to spend some additional time to work on alignment, explore some challenging poses you’ve always had questions about and work on your strength and stamina.
A long and juicy afternoon yin class with Sarah. Spend lots of time settling in to deep held poses and working out tension in those commonly tight areas like the hips and low back. A wonderful way to end a fun day of exploring nature (or the wineries) in this beautiful area.
About the meditation (all optional)
Christina will offer two 30-minute guided meditations each day. Each meditation will begin with a short dharma talk followed by 20 minutes of guided practice. Practices will include shamatha (breath awareness), metta (loving-kindness practice), gratitude meditations and more.
About the Inn At Aurora
A collection of historic inns, restored to luxury, with beautiful balconies and porches overlooking pristine Cayuga Lake in the heart of New York's storied Finger Lakes. Sweeping lawns that roll down to the water's edge, exquisite artwork and beautiful farm-to-table cuisine, The Aurora Inn has all the intimacy of a bed and breakfast with services and amenities that only a luxury hotel can offer.
