In Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, autumn is the ideal time to reset the body, mind, and spirit to prepare for a healthy journey through the coming winter months. According to the ancient science of East Asian medicine, our bodies have stored up so much fire from the fiery summer that we need to prepare our bodies for a slower, cooler, and easier winter. Autumn is also the ideal time for creating routines and practices toward, not only self-care, but essentially, self-love. The Autumn Sangha is designed to give you the supports to rejuvenate and find complete balance aligned with the season.
The cost for the retreat alone is $280. This includes…
▪ All movement sessions (qi gong, yoga, gong fu) – All Levels Welcome

The Cha Dao Tea Ceremony is designed to connect humans to ancestral wisdom and their traditions. Tea ceremonies have been used to bond communities, celebrate seasonal changes and cultures, and to connect more deeply with oneself.
Qi Gong | Qi gong is a form of moving meditation. The Jing Luo Qi Gong method uses breath, intention, movement, and massage to open and reinforce the channel system of the practitioner thus keeping a healthy balance between mind and emotion, qi and strength. This specific form encourages body awareness, and promotes a wonderful sense of emotional balance. Regular practice strengthens the tendons, bones and skin, regulates the functioning of the brain, circulatory system and digestive systems, and allows the cells of the entire body to remain in coordination.
Yin Yoga | In Yin Yoga we don’t use the body to get into the pose, we use the pose to get into the body. This practice combines the influences of Hatha Yoga with Chinese Daoist practices and Western science to create vitality in the body. With its emphasis on long-held, passive stresses of the deeper connective tissues, Yin Yoga mobilizes and strengthen our joints, ligaments and deep fascial networks. Yin is yielding, allowing, and nourishing. This intimate practice of yoga requires you to get ready to be intimate with the self, with feelings, sensations, and emotions.
Xing Yi Gong Fu | Xing Yi is a traditional internal martial arts style from China. This art form emphasizes the development of relaxed power by training proper body alignment and strengthening the connections between muscle, tendon, and bone. We focus on long, slow movements, that lead us to excellent, precise motor control and coordination with an emphasis on connecting breath with movement. Based on the theory of the Five Elements (Wu Xing), Xing Yi offers excellent health benefits and the ability to be martially effective.
