New Light: A Yoga & Meditation Retreat with Marie Marchand

August 17-24, 2019

ABOUT RETREAT

Join Kripalu Yoga Teacher Marie Marchand for seven days of yoga, meditation and daily adventures in the Land of Enchantment.

This retreat is designed to meet you where you are and provide the perfect balance of quiet introspection & rest with time spent exploring the amazing light, landscapes and cultures of Northern New Mexico.

The retreat will include daily morning yoga practice, some afternoon meditation workshops, as well as daily adventures throughout northern New Mexico. We’ll spend a day in Georgia O’Keeffe Country, touring her home and studio and visiting Ghost Ranch where she lived and painted some of her most iconic scenes. Other outings include a rejuvenating day at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs & Spa, a visit Taos Pueblo, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the stunning Rio Grande Gorge. Of course there will be plenty of opportunities for some quiet time to slow down and do whatever nourishes your soul ~ read, write, nap, swim, enjoy the hot tub, make new friends, walk the meditation path & labyrinth or just sit and watch the amazing New Mexico sky and the constantly changing light.

This retreat is perfect for solo travelers, groups of friends or couples. Ask about our non-yoga pricing for travel companions who prefer to skip the yoga & meditation.
