Nourish, Heal, and Rejuvenate – A Restorative Yoga Retreat

2 daily Restorative/Yin Yoga classes

Kirtan-Devotional Chanting

Guided Meditations and Visualizations

Gentle Assists to bring the body into balance

Breathwork

A restorative yoga class involves five or six poses, supported by props that allow you to completely relax and rest. Held for 5 minutes or more, restorative poses include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle backbends. The classes are slow-paced, allowing the muscles to release tension and stress. The Restorative practice calms the mind and nervous system, boosts the immune system, enables you to turn inward, and focus on the breath. It is especially useful when you need to eliminate fatigue and stress that result from your daily activities. We will be together in Satsang, the practice of like-minded individuals coming together to elevate our practices together.

This retreat is open to all individuals.

Participants that have limited movement ability (i.e.- to get down onto the floor and up, old or new injuries, tightness, inflexibility), will greatly benefit from this gentle yet powerful yoga modality.

Banka
Banka
Banka has spent much of her life as a seeker, student, and spiritual practitioner. At the young age of 13, Banka first started meditating. Her teacher at that time was her mother, Sheila. Buddhism has been an important element of Banka’s study and practice. She lived at Tassajara Monastery and Green Dragon Temple where she practiced a strict discipline of Zen Buddhist meditation, chanting, and silence. In 1994 Banka received ordination (Jukai) from her teacher Reb Tenshin Anderson. She then went to France to study with Thich Nhat Hanh, and in 1995 received the 5 Precepts Ordination. India called to Banka, and she had the great fortune to go on a pilgrimage and study with HH the Dalai Lama, receiving White Tara Empowerment in 1997. Since that time Banka has studied yoga intently, receiving many certifications along the way and bringing a wealth of experience and understanding of yoga into her teaching. In 2003 Banka completed her first teacher training at Kalani with Kathy Elder. Her second yoga teacher training, in 2007, was in the Sivananda method. Also in 2007 Banka completed her third teacher training in Jivamukti Yoga. And her fourth teacher training came in 2015 in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. Banka became an Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher in 2015. Healthy, peaceful lifestyle and nutritious diet has also been a focus and force of study for Banka. She is certified in the Kushi Macrobiotic Healing Lifestyle and in the Ann Wigmore Institute Living Foods Lifestyle. Banka has also spent long periods of her life devoted to direct action campaigns to liberate animals, defend forests, anti-nuke, and indigenous rights. Banka is grateful for her teachers, Shri Sharon Gannon and Shri David Life, co-founders of Jivamukti Yoga. Banka has spent 5 weeks since 2008, studying, living with and taking care of her teachers in New York. Banka offers her gratitude to her other teachers; the Earth, animals,plants, trees and the ancestors. ***LOKAH SAMASTA SUKHINO BHAVANTU*** May all beings everywhere be happy and free and may the thoughts words & actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness & freedom for all.
