"This was one of my top 5 best weekends ever!"

"Unlike other retreats I've attended, everything was executed to perfection. And great value for the price - food, yoga, location...5-Star! I would highly recommend this Retreat to anyone no matter whether you practice yoga or not. It was worth every penny and more."

"We had such an amazing time! Everything was top-notch and so well planned - seamless, in fact - from the amazing yoga classes, to the 5-star meals, to the kayaking, to the biking, to the spa. Soooooo relaxing and fun with a wonderful group of people! My husband and I would recommend this retreat without question. We're going again next year for sure!"

"You know whatever you do at Breathe whether it's yoga, workshops, massage, (anything really) that it's going to be done right. This retreat is no different. Impeccable planning, beautiful location, great excursions, relaxation and great food. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway close to home. My girlfriend and I went and if we can swing it, we'll do it again. Great job guys!"

Yin and Acupuncture

With Liane Knox & Matthew Ward

Yin yoga stimulates the systems of the body through slow gentle traction and compression. When blood flow is stimulated it can move more freely throughout the body enhancing the therapeutic power of Acupuncture. Join Liane Knox, ERYT200 and Matthew Ward, R. Ac. for this 2 hour workshop to explore the power of combining Yin and Acupuncture.

The benefits of integrating yin yoga with acupuncture are:
• Detoxification
• Decreases stress
• Increases mobility in the ligaments, joints, connective tissues and vital organs
• Reduces inflammation and pain
• Stimulates the lymphatic system
• Increases immunity
• Improves digestion
• Builds bone density

The workshop will start with Liane leading you through a Yin Yoga class, followed by a resting period where Matthew will apply Acupuncture needles to support the vital organs and lastly a long savasana to restore balance. Students can expect to end this workshop feeling a strong sense of ease, balance and vitality.

*Each student will receive a receipt from a licensed Acupuncturist which is eligible for submission to group insurance.
