Yoga + Natural Solutions


A Wholehearted Yoga Retreat

Autumn invites us to slow down, step back and see the beauty of the forest instead of critiquing each tree. Taking this cue from nature, this wholehearted yoga retreat welcomes us to our yoga, meditation, and self-reflection practices to explore our inner landscape with compassion and curiosity.


Step away from your daily activities to nourish your body, soothe your nervous system, and calm your mind amidst nature's beauty by gifting yourself with Peace in the Prairie on October 9.

Serene Location

With views of the hilled landscape, the tranquil setting at Annett Nature Center inspires our conversation, introspection and movement.
