Peace in the Prairie
Holistic Yoga Retreat

Give yourself time to explore yoga, find balance and embrace peace on September 8, 2013 at Illuminate You: Peace in the Prairie A Holistic Yoga Retreat held at Annett Nature Center (South of Indianola, Iowa). I, Lynn Marie, believe in your ability to choose what serves you best on and off the mat.  It is truly your practice.  We will explore various yoga practices including physical poses, meditation and breath exercises and end with a sweet treat.  With an emphasis on proper alignment, energetic actions, use of props and modifications, you will find a yoga practice to be accessible and empowering.  

12:30pm Registration, Welcome & Introductions
Gathering on a tiered deck, overlooking the prairie landscape, allows us to engage fully in the practice and nature.

1pm Holistic Hatha Yoga
Lynn Marie Cunningham, RYT of Illuminate Yoga + Natural Solutions, will facilitate a practice that invites all to explore poses that suit the needs of each individual. Using the breath, meditation and physical poses, our Holistic Yoga practice will align all to realize the beauty and strength within and around.  

2:30pm  Break with an Hors D'Hoeuvres Bar
The hors d'hoeuvres bar will feature vegan & gluten free whole food freshly made for you to sample and enjoy.

2:50pm  Guided Meditative Hike, Personal Reflection or Other Joys
This session is for you to engage in an activity that best feeds your spirit. You may participate in a guided meditative hike (light) or enjoy the hiking trails on your own.  Or if you would like something a little less physical, you could explore one of your passions... knit, paint, journal, sun bathe or read a book or magazine. I will bring my yoga books, crayons, paper and a few other goodies for you to enjoy as well.

3:45pm  Restorative Yoga
Annett Nature Center restores ecological balance by nurturing its prairie roots and we through our restorative practice. Restorative Yoga is a therapeutic style of yoga that soothes your nervous system, calms your mind, frees your spirit and creates space to restore balance. Lynn Marie Cunningham, RYT of Illuminate Yoga + Natural Solutions, will lead you through this restorative yoga session that is a gentle yet powerful practice that has healing benefits for all. You will be invited to slow down and cleanse the body with total relaxation.

5:15pm Closing & Departure w/ Sweet Treats

A refreshment bar will be provided throughout the event that will also meet Lynn Marie's high standards of health and flavor.  Satiate your thirst with coconut water, fruit infused water, herbal and a variety of other teas - hot or cold. 
This retreat will nourish and revitalize your body, spirit and mind like an extended Savasana.  Group size is limited allowing for you to receive a personalized experience.  New and experienced yoga practitioners are welcome. Please contact me with any questions. 

The study of yoga began as a dialogue between teacher and student. To honor that tradition, I work with individuals to create a practice that makes sense for your body and level of experience.  All participants are given a $10 discount on One to One sessions for Yoga, Reiki or Life Coaching.  

I look forward to sharing in a day of Peace in the Prairie!
Lynn Marie
