Class description

Join Fannie Hungerford and Amie Heeter for this heart quenching 5 night/6 day yoga & meditation retreat nestled along Lake Superior’s shore. During summer’s peak when life is bursting with fullness, let’s celebrate the vibrance of the season and plant seeds of possibility. Yoga as a practice infuses renewal, replenishing our inner resources. Yoga as a sacred tradition brings us into a deeper connection with life; harmonizing our inner and outer worlds and expanding our sense of self and what gifts we have to offer in this life.

This retreat will include several spokes on the wheel of practice, including movement, breath work, meditation, yoga nidra, self inquiry, and plenty of time to commune with nature. All levels of practitioners are welcome! Let’s swim, bathe our senses in the forest, and rest with the sacred surroundings of the boreal landscape. Each day we will offer a creative weaving of practices, free time, and opportunities to explore the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.
Amie and Fannie recognize the felt and sacred charge of this region is due in part to Lake Superior's indelible presence and also to the longtime stewards of this region known as the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe. They have called this region home for millenia. A portion of received profits will be donated to the tribe to honor them and their part in protecting and shaping this place.

THREE THINGS RETREAT GUESTS WILL WALK AWAY WITH UPON RETREAT COMPLETION:

  • A deep sense of replenishment in body and mind after a week with yoga practice and nature's medicine
  • Insight into patterns and the beliefs that fuel them that hold us back from embracing all of ourselves and feeling connected to our heart's wisdom
  • Tools that help us feel supported as we all navigate the challenge of these times
