LIBERATE YOUR INNER REBEL - A Wild and Real Retreat for Women - September 8-10th, 2017
Wild and Real Retreats are experiential wellness adventures that encourage participants to shake hands with their authentic self through mindful and sustainable practices. Our mission is to assist retreatees in discovering their innermost greatness and then equipping them with tools and techniques that will allow them to harness that power and run with it unapologetically.
Wild and Real Retreats are excited to offer a new women’s weekend retreat, LIBERATE YOUR INNER REBEL, at Pure Awareness from September the 8-10th, 2017.
W&R wants to support you in leading your own self-rebellion against inauthenticity. Through yoga, meditation, reflective writing, hiking, stand up paddling and deep dialogue about the things in life that actually matter (love and intimacy, work related stress and fatigue, fears and challenges related to children and dependents, low self-esteem and poor body-image, loss of direction in life, you name it) we strive to equip you with a toolbox of aids to inspire, motivate and empower you to LIVE your damn life the way its intended to be lived!

AN AYURVEDIC APPROACH TO HEALTH AND WELLNESS WITH IAN HAYWARD - September 30th, 2017 from 10am-5pm
Join us Saturday September 30th for a day of learning the key concepts of the Ayurvedic approach to health and wellness. Ayurveda (literally, “knowledge of life”) is yoga’s sister science of health and well-being. It is a method of understanding and working with our bodies to bring them into optimal balance and functioning for a life of harmony and vitality.
In this one day workshop the emphasis is on practical application....
* You will explore the Elemental building blocks that make up who we are (Fire, Earth/Water, Air/Space) and gain insights into the physical, mental and emotional characteristics of how these Elements express in our bodies.
* You will discover the vital healing energies that flow through the Elements and their essential role in supporting positive vitality on every level of your being.
* You will learn from Ayurvedic wisdom how to harmonize and bring balance to your heart, self and person according to your Elemental body/mind type.

YOGAKIDS MINDFULNESS + MOVEMENT FOR KIDS FOUNDATIONS TRAINING - November 11-12th, 2017
Inspired by educational theorists Howard Gardner and Maria Montessori, our Mindfulness & Movement for Kids Foundations Training takes a whole-child approach — and integrates math, science, literacy, art, music and more. The approach is fun, empowering and fully capable of reaching students of all ages and abilities.
You will experience 2 full days of life-changing love and laughter, led by our Teacher Trainer Sara Hastings Morris. You will be introduced to all 14 of the YogaKids Elements, the building blocks of this amazing program. These Elements (Math Medley, Laughing Language, Visual Vignettes… to name just a few) incorporate all the different ways children learn. They combine yoga with reading, writing, science, art, music, games, ecology, philosophy and much more — and thus, create a matrix for learning that’s accessible to all children.
Foundations Training events are for anyone wanting to give the gift of mindfulness and movement to children: educators, parents, occupational therapists, speech therapists, yoga teachers, and other child-focused professionals. No yoga experience is required.
