A 3-Day Retreat | 8-11 March 2023
Live event in Athens, Georgia (UGA Campus)
The power of yoga can be summed up with one word: transformation. Yoga can transform your life with less stress, better sleep, improved strength and flexibility, natural weight management, and hormonal balance.
The challenge for many is the constant need to pick and choose the practices that best suit your ever-changing body and ever-changing life. When you find your focus, yoga can be a lifelong source of strength, stability, and abundant health.
Tools of Transformation is a three-day yoga retreat designed to help you discover your path toward living your best life possible through applied yoga practices. Together, as a group, we’ll explore strength and balance, breathing and mindfulness, spine and joint care, hormone balance, and more. This retreat will be 70 percent practice, 20 percent workshop-style learning, and 10 percent community connection.
Our objective is for you to leave feeling refreshed and inspired, but most importantly, equipped with the mind-body tools you need to have an amazing year. The retreat is designed for all fitness levels, all ages and backgrounds. The typical YOGABODY student is atypical. We have students and teachers from 41 countries and ranging in age from 17-74. We’re a science-based, inclusive, non-dogmatic school. Whatever your background, you’re welcome at YOGABODY.
Key Benefits of Attending
Reignite the Fire of Practice. Every single person experiences highs and lows when it comes to fitness. There are months or even years when it feels fun and flowing. Then there are times when yoga and any form of exercise just feels dull and difficult. During this retreat we’ll explore new ways of moving, breathing, and sequencing your yoga so that you can reignite your fire and reinvigorate your commitment to practice.
Manage Your Stress. The world is safer than ever, but to your neolithic brain, it doesn’t feel that way. With constant access to a newsfeed of crisis, war, and catastrophe in real time, it can be very challenging to find balance. Using yoga breathing, mindfulness, and anxiety transformation tools, you’ll have a safe and effective way to shield your nervous system from an onslaught of worry.
Improve Your Sleep. Lack of sleep increases your risk of just about every mental and physical illness imaginable, and while it’s easy for us to sleep until 10 am on the weekends and relax on holidays, how do you enjoy restorative sleep on any given Tuesday when all the responsibilities and challenges of everyday life pile up? You’ll walk away from this retreat with a checklist and an action plan.
Simplify Your Nutrition. There are dozens of diets that can help you in the short term—one to three months—but how can you find a personal nutrition plan that is easy and enjoyable enough to stick to for life? We’ll explore universal principles of nutrition so you can create a gameplan.
Stretch and Strengthen Your Body. Lifestyle fitness is an approach focused on living your best life for longer. We want to hike, travel, carry kids and grandkids in our arms, ski, swim, and remain active for as long as possible. To enjoy an active lifestyle well into your later years, you need muscle strength and mobility. We’ll address both from a moderate, lifestyle-focused perspective, so you have focus and a plan.
Connect with Like-Minded People. The research is clear. The single thing that will have the biggest impact on your health is the people you surround yourself with. If your friends and family are not on a path to lifestyle fitness, it’s nearly impossible to do it alone. At this retreat, you’ll meet diverse but like-minded people to share ideas, share experiences, and build friendships with. Community matters more than anyone realizes.
