It’s 7:30pm on Sunday night and I am sitting on the sofa with my feet up writing this blog. Whew! What a weekend.
Here’s the recap of my Friday to Sunday Yoga Retreat at Kripalu in the Berkshire Mountains in Western Massachusetts.
10 hours driving
Alot of driving but I didn’t need to use my GPS. I knew the way by heart:-)
6 Yoga classes
Including 2 Gentle, Yin, Moderate and Vigorous.
5 mile moderate hike
Up and down the mountain and also took a break Lakeside
1 nap on a bench under a tree ( I was tired after hiking)
1 Guided meditation that also included a nap. Lol:-)
Every muscle is sore in a good way
One connection made with a Yoga teacher I admire. That was cool:-)
I ate all of my meals in the Silent Dining room and chose to keep this time to myself.
The best part of the trip for me happened when I got home. I feel the same peace at home that I felt at Kripalu. I didn’t have to go away to find peace and happiness. It already lives within me. Isn’t that what “living ” your yoga is all about? Finding peace within!
