April 28-30 (RETREAT IS FULL)

Turning Inward: Silent Yoga Retreat w/ Alison Rubin

This is an opportunity for you to spend a quiet weekend in the country, slow down, unwind and turn inward...from your busy life in the world, to the silence, peace and expansiveness within. In support of this journey, we will practice asana (postures), pranayama (breathing), and meditation (conscious awareness), and there will be plenty of personal time to wander through the woods, or sit on a log and simply “be” in the present moment.

Kairos is a spiritual retreat center located on 27 acres of beautiful countryside, about 25 minutes north of Spokane. The environment is inherently peaceful and extremely conducive to the practice of Yoga. The accommodations are simple and comfortable, each person having his/her own bedroom. All vegetarian meals will be provided and included in the fees.

Alison’s experience as a yoga instructor involves over 30 years of weekly classes, as well as multiple workshops, retreats and teacher trainings. She especially enjoys leading retreats, as it provides a unique opportunity for students to drop deeply into sadhana (the practices of yoga) without any distractions from the outer world.

Location: Kairos Retreat Center, Spokane
Times: Friday 3:00pm - Sunday 3:00pm
Cost: Cost: $285 (includes food, lodging and instruction)
$50 deposit w/ balance due 2 weeks before retreat

As your guides, we will provide you with a basic foundation, with the knowledge and skills necessary for you to feel confident and empowered as you begin your journey in the art and science of teaching yoga.
