Balance & Brilliance:
A Fall Yoga Retreat

October 18 - 20, 2019
Hocking Hills, Ohio

Brilliant reds, gold and copper. Crisp air. Timeless rock wonders and waterfalls. Ohio's Hocking Hills in autumn epitomize the concept of retreat. Escape the ordinary and answer autumn's call to unwind, recalibrate and celebrate life's bounty.  

Retreat with Liz Lear, CYT, to the Hocking Hills region's premier destination, the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls, for a restorative weekend of gentle yoga (suitable for all abilities), meditation, connecting with nature and celebrating life's simple goodness. Bring a friend, relax at the spa, hike to the falls. Your getaway weekend promises active play and reflective peace away from weekday worry and routine.

This is your chance for the balancing reboot your body, mind and spirit crave. Join Liz to stoke your soul’s brilliance as you bathe in autumn's fiery splendor. Spots are limited, so reserve your mat today.

Thanks so much for facilitating the wonderful retreat this weekend! It was simply a lovely experience - a time to step away from crowds and noise, to remember to breathe, to rest, to be intentional in letting go and adding on. And thanks for being such a good model of grace, balance and quiet kindness.
