Fall Urban Retreat with Yana Shala

Next weekend, I’ll be presenting our  first Urban Retreat by Yana Shala and Tsada Yoga. This is an innovative concept born of a summer brainstorm in the park with my boyfriend Ray. Our goal is to offer a space and time to learn, share, explore different techniques for a better health, and to promote among its participants a sense of community support through education, based on understanding, tolerance and compassion among.

We’ll be holding three Urban Retreats a year, one for each Ayurvedic season. In every retreat, different teachers from Yana Shala’s Faculty ( more details soon!) and Guest Speakers, will give a snapshot of their preferred discipline, method or technique that they have passionately mastered or deeply learned throughout the years, and that they’ll come to share with the participants – hoping that some or several of them will be inspired to research and explore deeper those specific tools.

For our first retreat, as presenters, Barb Totzke and myself are thrilled to count with a fantastic Guest Speaker to talk about aromatherapy, Michelle Bardwell from Flower Road LLC. She’s an extraordinary clinical aromatherapist – who’ve studied under renowned aromatherapists in France, and a gifted and talented teacher who loves sharing her passion and the healing properties of essential oils.

We’re also thankful to receive the support of several sponsors, locally and nationally, who believe in our mission and shared values.

Take a break, and join us for  24 hours of learning, sharing, and practicing in a beautiful loft and yoga studio at South Side on Lamar!
