A Yoga Training for Ritual & Circle Work
September 4th - 9th
Cabin 108 in Fenwick, Michigan
Train with Melissa Herzog at Cabin 108 in Fenwick, Michigan on a five night, four day retreat. In this experiential training you will learn how to incorporate movement and yoga asana into your personal and group rituals and circles. Following the Wheel of the Year, you will learn how to pair the current astrology ~ moon, and sun phases with movement and meditation. We’ll also cover the best poses to stimulate the chakras being amplified during certain times of the year as well as the elemental factors present.
This training will take place on 108 private acres in the central part of Michigan. Accommodations, training, and dinner are included in the price. Students will be responsible for providing their own breakfast and lunch. Our time spent together will be structured and intentional. Each student will receive an instructor guidebook that will include all training materials to confidently support you as you lead and incorporate movement into your circle. It is not a requirement that you are a circle leader or yoga instructor. All who are interested in this work are welcome to join this retreat experience.
Please plan for a 4 pm arrival time on Saturday, September 4th. Accommodations are dormitory style with an open floor plan that includes 2 single beds and 2 bunk beds. There are also (2) private rooms with large beds for an additional fee. All bedding and towels will be provided. Quiet hours will be held daily, 10 pm - 6 am. We’ll begin training each day at 8 am.
