Earth Day Kapha Yoga Retreat in April

Earth Day Kapha Yoga Retreat in April


A day retreat led by Laura Thomas RYT-500 and Anjali Desai CYT will be held on April 23 at Yoga Center of Collinsville. The event will provide a quiet space for attendees amidst their busy lives to reconnect with their inner needs and to the earth as the Kapha season begins. In the Ayurvedic system of health, Kapha season is connected to spring. Participants will leave the retreat feeling ready for the new season with a more balanced, grounded and centered sense of self.

The morning schedule will open with a guided meditation and move into a discussion on the Ayurvedic principles surrounding Kapha. A Kapha Flow yoga class will proceed a healthy lunch of Kapha foods that will be provided. In the afternoon, instruction and practice of yogic breathing techniques will prepare attendees for an outdoor walking meditation along the Farmington River. The experience will conclude with a deeply restorative Yoga Nidra session and a closing circle.

Located twelve miles west of Hartford near Route 4, Collinsville is a beautiful historic village of Canton and is framed by the Farmington River, Sweetheart Mountain and the quaint village streets filled with restaurants, entertainment and dealers of antiques, arts and crafts.

“We’re very excited to bring this experience to Collinsville,” said Yoga Center of Collinsville owner Shawn Cole. “Our newly renovated studio space, and the surrounding scenery of Collinsville, offers the perfect destination for a day retreat.”

Retreat attendance will be limited to 40 attendees and registration will open March 20.
