On their own, yoga and poetry are both radiant. When you combine them, magic happens!
Join us for a week of enchantment as you do yoga on the beach and on the farm and as you find poetic inspiration at the end of the dock and in the middle of the woods. Each day features three hours of poetry writing and one to two hours of yoga and meditation with poet and yoga instructor James Mihaley and yoga instructor Kathy Navis.
Yoga sessions and poetry classes will be held in various venues in the Egg Harbor and Fish Creek areas. Some days will begin with yoga and end with poetry; other days will start with writing and conclude with yoga and meditation. The retreat is open to all levels: advanced writers as well as those who are new to poetry; those with a regular yoga practice and those new to the mat.
Tuition of $525.00 is for the full week of instruction and includes some meals and social activities. Participants are responsible for their own lodging and most meals.
