Reflections on Solstice Retreats with IYCWM

By Published On: December 15th, 2023

“Thank you so much for creating the Sparks of Divinity retreat. I feel very nourished, liberated. I did not have one body ache the entire weekend, not even my usual painful neck issues… really quite amazing. I loved the solstice theme, and the focus at the end on “nourishing gratitude,” which is such a beautiful mantra to sustain my practice, on and off the mat. Loved every minute of the retreat, super grateful”

I felt so lifted by this weekend. The yoga was really wonderful – I appreciate that there were breaks. I was worried about not having the stamina for 2 days of yoga. I don’t always love partner work as it can take me out of my “zone” a bit; though without ropes, it can really help. In any case, I enjoyed the yoga tremendously.

It brought me back to a younger time, when I participated in several group learning experiences where we basically lived together throughout the workshops. My favorite part was meeting new yogi’s and having some downtime to engage in interesting conversation with great people.

It was great to do yoga three days in a row and it was great meeting the participants and Susan Elena was wonderful as always.
