Mountain Pose

Mountain Pose

By Jenny Kane

Moving back into the mountains, we touch the earth more directly again. As we slow down and walk, we can feel the ground under our feet more solidly.  We reconnect with the natural rhythm of life.

“Mountain pose” is the foundation of every other posture we practice in yoga, teaching us to balance our lives, our weight evenly across the soles of the feet.  In the same way the mountains, especially the High Sierra, offer us space to breathe and a place to rest in our natural states, shedding layers of technology and social demands.  We bring with us only what we truly need.

We are reminded to let go, making it easier to be present with each passing moment.  Whether in a studio or around a lake, yoga renews, resets our perspectives on life. I’ve been practicing yoga for the past 12 years and it holds the same place in my life as my relationship with the mountains.  It’s a space I go back to for balance and perspective.

Come enjoy a renewed perspective on life by joining our High Sierra Yoga Retreat.   This retreat is designed to meet your individual needs for a week in the mountains.  Imagine gourmet meals you don’t have to cook, daily yoga classes right outside your tent and guided hiking trips to nearby lakes.  You don’t have to carry anything but your water and camera.

I look forward to connecting with you in the mountains July 25-29, 2012.  More retreat info can be found on the website HERE.
