Yoga + Natural Solutions


Mini Weekly Retreat to Explore Living Skillfully

Enjoy a mini retreat each week with a lil reading, yoga, laughs and engaging discussion at Books & Yoga. Yoga brings together a community of heart centered individuals who inspire and support. Add the book The Yamas & Niyamas by Deborah Adele and we've got all the ingredients for exploring the beauty of practicing yoga and taking yoga off the mat.


Adele eloquently weaves stories and practical application ideas into her book, which inspires our time together in his 5 week yoga and discussion series. Our lighthearted exploration will include the topics:

  • Cleansing our bodies, our speech, & our thoughts.

  • Falling in love with our own life.

  • Consciously choosing discipline and growth.

  • Knowing thy self.

  • Paying attention to what life is asking of us.

Lynn Marie will host an open house in her downtown Des Moines loft for participants to meet and pick up the book on Sunday, January 29. Another date for book pick up may be arranged if there is a scheduling conflict.


We'll meet 5 consecutive Sundays (February 5, 12, 19, 26 March 5) from 6-8pm at the Hampton Inn & Suites Downtown Des Moines. Understanding conflicts may occur, make up options are available.

We'll read a chapter (approximately 10-15 pages) between sessions and pick an idea to put into practice off the mat. We'll come back together to practice yoga and discuss our thoughts on the week's topic.
