Class description

The goal of meditation is to achieve a state of peace from within. The yoga sutras speak to this in the opening words “Yoga is the stilling of the fluctuations of the mind”.

In this 4 day/3 night retreat at Wild Rice Retreat Center, you can spend the last beautiful days of summer on the Wisconsin Shores of Lake Superior, exploring various ways to reach this quiet place. We’ll use the tools of yoga, breath exercises, meditation techniques, Yoga Nidra, and lot’s of Sacred Sound Healing! 

A variety of methodologies will be explored including; three full sound baths, Wim Hof Method Breath-Work (plus optional cold plunge and the incredible sauna at  Wild Rice) Yoga Nidra meditation journeys, learning breath work that you can take home with you, and Walking Meditation in the serene landscape of northern most Wisconsin. 

The land is sacred and healing, with vortices (swirling centers of energy that are conducive to healing, meditation and self-exploration) throughout the area.

The four days will include; daily yoga practice, most meals (lovingly prepared locally), all of the practices mentioned above, plus two off- property excursions- one of which will take us to the magical Apostle Islands- specifically Madeline Island and an incredible hike out to rocks that jut out over Lake Superior (jumping into the water below is completely optional)!
