New — second event added in September!
Sanctuary One, in partnership with Rasa Center for Yoga & Wellness, welcomes you to join us for FARM FLOW, our first yoga retreat at Double Oak Farm. With over 55 acres in Oregon’s beautiful Applegate Valley, Sanctuary One provides a safe place for animals and a healing place for people while promoting environmental stewardship. During this four-hour retreat, Natalie Pennington, manager and faculty teacher at Rasa Center for Yoga & Wellness, will lead you through a gentle flow yoga class followed by guided meditation with the intention to deepen your connection to nature. Yoga at the stunning grounds of Sanctuary One is the perfect channel to offer our gratitude to earth and all its creatures, while recommitting our stewardship to that which sustains us all.
The first retreat (sold out!) will be held on Sunday, June 4, 2017 from 10am to 2pm at Sanctuary One (about a 30-minute drive from Jacksonville, OR). We have recently added a second retreat, to be held Sunday, September 17, 2017 from 10am to 2pm! Tea and light snacks will be provided. All levels welcome. All proceeds benefit Sanctuary One. Enrollment is limited to 25 participants. Registration fee is $55 per person, which includes a custom tank-top shirt.
Rasa Center for Yoga & Wellness is committed to being good steward to the environment and effective citizens in the communities. As Rasa continues to grow their presence in the Rogue Valley, so shall their efforts to bring yoga to those who need it most. It is with great hope that Southern Oregon shall join Rasa in their continued work to bring the benefits of yoga outside of the studio and into neighborhoods and global communities.
About Natalie Pennington:
From the beginning, Natalie has always found her own sanctuary in the company of animals. Having grown up on a ranch, animals have been a part of her life that she holds very close to her heart. As much as the farm has become a sanctuary for rescued animals, yoga has brought enrichment into Natalie’s life and has become a home and a great refuge for her. Natalie views her time on the mat as a gift, an invaluable opportunity to draw one’s mind away from its usual concerns and simply be in the present moment. Every class is a reminder of what she loves about the practice and that yoga can truly change lives, one breath at a time. As studio manager at Rasa Center for Yoga & Wellness, Natalie is fully immersed in the Rasa community, an ever-growing network of people dedicated to sharing yoga throughout southern Oregon.
