Words To Live By: A Contemplative Yoga Retreat

Retreat Overview

How do the words you hear in your head shape your perception of daily life?

How do the stories you tell yourself, and the stories you tell others about yourself, craft a life? Words To Live By is a five day contemplative yoga retreat open to anyone interested in a multidimensional immersion in poetry, writing, and yoga.

What to Expect

All Pavones Yoga Center teacher trainings are offered in true residential retreat style.

Accommodations, meals, yoga classes, and training sessions all take place onsite. Our earth-based programs combine various experiences in nature as a way to deepen our connection to the earth and inspire the sense of awe and natural curiosity that foster healthy learning.

For five days, we will immerse ourselves in twice daily yoga practices, poetry and prose, journaling, meditation, and experiential workshops. The slow-paced yoga classes in the morning will awaken and inspire. Evening yoga practices are restorative and therapeutic. This retreat is suitable for beginning yoga students, yoga teachers, and those interested in spending time in silent contemplation.

During my time at Pavones Yoga Center I had a life changing experience. The staff at Pavones Yoga Center created a program that exceeded any expectation I had going into the program. I learned so much from them and they made the trip one that I could only dream of.
