Nourishing Roots introduces a 7 step journey exploring where we come from, how to engage our constitutional strengths and nourish the true essence of ourselves and others. Join our group at this truly magical location pictured in this photo.

On this Nourishing Roots Retreat we combine Qigong, restorative Yoga practices with spiritual self-identity teachings from Chinese medicine which acknowledges the body-mind as one whole system. The course design offers a clear structured healing/learning pathway with practices to embody the theory and help rebalance the body-mind. This retreat offers you a take home prescription for physical-mental-spiritual well-being.
