If you are looking to move toward health and wellness, this weekend retreat is the perfect opportunity. The entire weekend will be centered around wellness practices that not only heal the body, but the mind and spirit as well. These practices will include gentle Yoga, soothing Yogazander®, Yoga Nidra, peaceful Meditation and energy balancing Reiki. The peaceful setting of the La Quinta Resort at the base of the Santa Rosa Mountains will provide a perfect backdrop for these practices as master teachers guide the learning. Classes will be taught by Helena and teachers from her yoga tree (previous students who are now teachers and who embrace her teaching style).  No previous experience is needed in any of these practices; however, for those who have experience, it will be a deeper exploration into some different approaches. Teachers who attend will qualify for 5 CEUs. Regardless of experience levels, it will be a move toward serenity for all.
