Day 1 of the Cultivating Stillness Yoga Retreat

Wow, that was a lot of yoga! We had an 85 minute session to start off the day. A gentle, therapeutic practice. But my back was not happy with it. If I moved too far in the wrong direction, it let me know.

Our workshop was about Self-Care. We talked about it and then we applied our learning. We gave ourselves a facial with honey, lavender and rose petals. It smelled lovely and even tasted great! First we applied the masque. Then cucumber slices were placed on our eyelids as we reclined back on our bolsters. Heavenly!

We also learned about dry brushing and got our own brush to try it out. Then we had another long yoga session. What a lovely morning!

So many ideas to incorporate into my routine. I will have to think about how much I can handle without feeling overloaded. Lots to think about…
