Notes from Alec and Alaina:
I am so excited that you are taking this opportunity to see what you are capable of doing physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. This retreat will connect us to ourselves, which in turn, helps us to connect with others.
This weekend you get to put yourself and your health in the forefront of your priorities. We will use movement yoga medicine, Pranayama, sound healing and yummy food to feed our souls! Experiencing cold water therapy will be an experience we will never forget, learning new methods to boost immunity, getting out of our comfort zones and finding our calm in the chaos. I too am a beginner when it comes to ice baths but I find comfort in knowing we are all where we need to be. Let’s find ourselves, let’s be happy and healthy. Let’s build up our immunity with community. Big breaths, big love, Alaina
