Yoga Day of Reflection: Discernment in Motion – Exploring Fear
August 31 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$65
Registration for this event is now closed.
Directed by Kimberly Nettuno, RYT
As embodied spirits, we physically store emotions in the body’s tissues that block our connection to the spirit within. St. Ignatius believed that one’s thoughts, feelings, and actions move them closer to or further from God. If not worked through, these stored emotions can influence our life, pushing us further from God. Through prayerful yoga and reflection, we will explore the emotion of fear. We will move it through the body, tapping into the spiritual gift of security to bring us closer to God.
Check-in starts at 8:30 am, with a light breakfast on arrival. We will begin on our mats in the Chapel promptly at 9 am. A silent, nourishing lunch will be provided in the dining room mid-day and the program will conclude with Mass at 2:30 pm. Everyone will bring their own yoga mat (as a towel is not a safe surface upon which to practice yoga).
Beginners and experienced participants are welcome!
This is a semi-silent retreat. Guests are expected to maintain a sacred silence throughout the retreat, including at meals, unless otherwise noted. There will be periods of discussion and dialogue as and when shared by the retreat director.
Kimberly (Kimi) Nettuno, RYT, along with her oldest daughter, Hannah, owns Trinity Movement where, with over 800 hours of yoga training combined with a Certificate in Spiritual Direction from Spring Hill College and her continued studies there to earn a Master of Theological Studies, she brings the beauty of Eastern and Western spirituality together in the practice of Christian Yoga.
Kimi believes that we are all unique, created children of God. She instructs others to connect with this truth by becoming aware of the breath – the living, moving Spirit within. In this simple act of breathing, we recognize God is always with us and begin to find God in all things.
