Nature/Nurture: A Playful Summer Movement Retreat and Campout with Monicka and Britt


Sunday July 21 - Tuesday July 23

Join Monicka and Britt for this sweet little summer gem of a retreat, where you'll have an opportunity to move in a variety of ways while enjoying the beauty of the Pacific NW Coast! Both of these yoga and movement teachers share a dedication to smart and functional movement while offering you a chance to reconnect with yourself through yoga asana, somatic movement, meditation, playfulness and time in nature.

Movement lovers, are you longing to steal a little time away for yourself this summer? Come join us in this cheap, cheerful and low-key summer break retreat, where we will have time to walk/hike around the peninsula, ride your bike on the Long Beach Discovery bike trail, and enjoy the camp vibes (if that's your thing). There will also be time to spend in the Finnish-style sauna, share time around a campfire, or just be with the sounds of the roaring ocean.

We’ll share four classes that are full of fluid, mindful, intuitive movement and lots of time to dive deep into your inner body space, as well as fun and creative ways to increase range of motion and cultivate strength in your practice, whatever that might look like. Lots of options are shared, and we have capacity to make this retreat work for students of any level.

Come together on Sunday evening at 5pm for a shared meal on the first night, and then otherwise, campers and retreaters will either bring their own meals using either their own cooking setups or the outdoor shared kitchen to prepare them, or go out for meals in the funky nearby town.
