Curious about Yoga and interested in beginning a yoga practice? Want to refine and deepen an already existing practice? If so, join Lela Hughes for a 6-week Beginner Yoga Series. Over the course of these 6 weeks we will explore the basic principles of Yoga asanas (postures), pranayama (breath work), mindfulness, and the strength and grace that arise from their integration. Each class will offer a balanced yoga sequence working with attention to proper alignment, learning to synchronize breath with movement, and finding our abilities to authentically express oneself through the ancient tradition of Yoga. Each week we will build upon sun salutations A and B, introducing new poses and expanding our vinyasa flow. This class is suitable for individuals who can up and down off the floor with ease.

Join Bob and Jed for a lovely Yin Yoga class followed by a Yoga Nidra guided meditation accompanied by singer/songwriter/guitarist Jed Hughes. Yin Yoga uses gentle long held postures practiced with an attitude of compassionate acceptance to awaken the more Yin parts of our physical, emotional and spiritual selves. Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation that puts the practitioner into a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping. Infused with intention, both Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra are deeply restorative, grounding and healing.

Yoga Retreat in Playa Grande, Costa Rica $1,000Purchase required to enroll

with Jo Kirsch and Bob Speck
December 4-11, 2019

Join us for a week of yoga and adventure in beautiful Costa Rica. Return to your natural state of balance, harmony and peace, while practicing yoga in this tranquil and rejuvenating setting. We'll stay at the RipJack Inn, a Boutique Hotel located just 245 feet from the beach in Playa Grande, Costa Rica. RipJack Inn has a beautiful Yoga Shala, a tree top restaurant with some of the best food in the country, swimming pools and more. Playa Grande is a National Park that protects the Leatherback Turtle with miles of pristine beaches along the Pacific Ocean.

This is a wonderful opportunity to nurture your body, mind and soul with morning meditation, revitalizing and balancing yoga classes, delicious food, and great company. There will be plenty of free time daily to relax and play, and two group excursions are planned to explore the beautiful beaches and gorgeous ocean of Playa Grande. If you have a partner or a family member who would love a tropical vacation, but is not "into yoga”, that's okay too. There is plenty to explore and lots of time to enjoy the beach and the surrounding area. Or, maybe this is the time they can get "turned on" to the practices, which will be accessible to Every Body (and always optional)!

Reserve your spot with a $1000 non-refundable deposit. Balance due November 10, 2019.

Ski with Bob and Jo, Tuesdays, mid-December through March. Each week we will ski a different resort included in the Ikon Ski Pass. We will also have two 3-day trips.

For us, these small Eastern get-always will be just a chance to build a sense of community while spending time together outside in nature. Here, in a supportive, non-competitive setting, we celebrate adventure, we build relationships, and we practice finding presence and balance while sliding down a mountain in ever-changing mountain conditions. We also have the opportunity to share ways to ski and ride more effectively and enjoy mountain sports more... perhaps even prepare ourselves for the annual HOTV Yoga trip in April to Snowbird, Utah!

Bob and Jo will lead you through a 15 minute yoga for skiers and riders warm-up and cool-down before and after skiing.We will meet in the ski area Base Lodge at 8:30AM. We'll practice yoga standing up or in chairs, so there is no need for you to bring a yoga mat.

We will have the option to ski together, integrating the yogic principles of mindfulness, breath control, core awareness, flexibility, strength and balance into skiing and riding. Although these get-togethers are not intended to be skiing or riding lessons, we are happy to share our insights and experiences. Bob and Jo have decades of experience teaching skiing, riding, and yoga... and many years also training other teachers in all of these! The on-hill portion of this program will generally be all-mountain skiing and riding in informal groups on intermediate and expert terrain.

We are charging a fee primarily to provide a bit of incentive for all of us to show up... and to account for organizational work, as well as leading yoga sessions and on-snow groups. We intend to donate half of fees collected before the Christmas holiday to the Manchester Food Pantry.

Lift tickets, Lodging and Meals are not included. Carpooling is a possibility.
If you have an Ikon Ski Pass, you may use that. Otherwise you must purchase a lift ticket from each Resort.

Not sure if this is for you? Come try out our program for one day for $20.
