Summary

After more than a year of dealing with the pandemic, it’s time to find our Selves and rediscover our community through a breath-centered practice where we will balance our minds and bodies amidst the beauty of Taos, New Mexico.

Each day will focus on a different family of poses through an alignment-based vinyasa practice that will both strengthen and openthe body. We’ll purge the toxins that may have built up over the year through challenging practices, which you can modify, and then reconnect to our deeper selves through sweet restorative postures, breath-work and long, deep savasanas.

Spending time with others out in the beautiful and historic landscape of Taos will recharge the soul from the inside out. Nature baths and a strong sense of community help us to revitalize and restore, leaving us refreshed and ready for all that life brings us.

Alignment-based vinyasa combines the concepts of proper alignment, themed classes and usage of props from the Iyengar tradition of yoga with Ashtanga’s tradition of moving with the breath through Sun Salutations. It is a practice that uses intelligent sequencing to create strong mental focus or concentration as well as requiring physical discipline and strength.

What's included in the package

  • 6 nights accommodations
  • 3 meals per day starting with dinner on the first night and ending with breakfast on the last day
  • Daily yoga practices
  • Personal retreat time (having time to nap, explore, walk, read, and just be)

KRISTIN OLSON
Kristin’s yoga journey began at age 14 when she stumbled upon an Ali McGraw yoga video at Blockbuster. Since then she has been practicing for nearly 26 years and hopes to be practicing for decades more. She loves noticing how her own practice, and others’, ebbs and flows depending on different stages of life, yet always knowing the constant is a disciplined yoga practice, whether that is rigorous asana or quieting meditation.

Kristin’s teaching has been strongly influenced by internationally esteemed yoga teacher Natasha Rizopoulos, with whom she earned both her 200-hour and 500-hour Yoga Alliance-compliant teacher certificate. She has assisted Natasha with YogaWorks teacher trainings and at Kripalu Yoga Center continuously. This unique mentorship has allowed her to lead students through intelligent sequences with precise instruction. She has also study regularly with revered master Iyengar yoga teacher Patricia Walden.

Kristin leads workshops and teacher trainings for beginner students as well as advanced practitioners. She is a contributing writer for Boston Yoga and LA Yoga magazine and writes a monthly column Poise dedicated to emphasizing the true essence of asana.
