The Art of Being You

Express yourself through Movement, Writing, & Art.

(Photo by: Bailey Aro Photography)

Whether you know it or not, you are the infinite potential of love, peace, and joy.
— Amit Ray

We love the quiet peace of a Northern Minnesota winter.


Imagine yourself deep in the woods, drinking up the sights of nature. You step into the Great Hall with the large stone fireplace glowing bright and warm. You are surrounded by a beautiful vaulted ceiling and expansive windows. The snow is falling outside and you are at peace. Surrounded by blissful yogis…you are ready to practice. 

"Journey North" with Amanda, Bryana, and Joella for our third annual Winter Yoga Retreat.
