FINDING THE VOICE WITHIN:
Women's Yoga & Chanting Workshop

Join us for a nourishing day of yoga, chanting, walking through the Redwoods, hot tub time, organic food, and lovely women!

Skyote Mountain is located in the Santa Cruz Mountains just a few minutes outside of Scott's Valley. This straw bail center is all solar powered with radiant heat floors and a gorgeous, light filled yoga studio.

Jackie Long will lead us through a 1.5 hour gentle flow yoga class and 1.5 hour yin/restorative yoga class. Heather Houston, singer/songwriter, yoga teacher and vocal instructor will guide us in soulful, heart opening chanting. Heather teaches private voice lessons, offers healing sessions, leads singing circles and conducts the 15 voice choir, Women with Wings. She is as gifted at leading hundreds of people in singing or chanting together harmoniously, as she is at guiding a single student in discovering the intricacies and nuances of their own voice. Selene Vega is our delightful hostess who will put out tea and snacks and make us a wonderful, organic, vegetarian dinner.

In addition to practicing yoga and chanting, there will be time to hike, reflect, journal, connect and share. If you decide to stay overnight, you can either camp or stay in the yurt. There are also two rooms available if you wish to stay indoors.

For those who stay overnight, Sunday morning will offer you the opportunity to connect with other women at the retreat. It will also be a lovely chance to connect with yourself and your inner voice, so please bring your journal if you have one. We hope you can make it to this special day/weekend!

The daylong retreat is for mothers & adult daughters (ages 18 and older). Since all women are daughters, this retreat is open to all women interested in exploring their mother-daughter relationship, whether you come alone, with a friend or with your mother or daughter.
