Ann has been leading retreats to different parts of the world for almost twenty years.
She believes deeply in the lasting benefits of retreat and on the vivifying experience of travel. For this reason, she offers two different styles of retreat, with some overlapping benefits:
TRADITIONAL YOGA RETREATS
Seven or more days of gathering together with Ann in a supportive, natural environment for indepth yoga practice and study. Days typically include a 2-1/2 to 3 hour morning asana session and an 90-minute afternoon session of chant and pranayama. Special events, like an evening chanting session around the fire or a pre-dawn sunrise meditation may also be included. Ann's next "traditional yoga retreat" will be Yoga & Chanting in Mexico in December 2017.
Inspiration — "to take in spirit" — is a yogic state of sorts. In Ann's Inspiration Retreats the inspiration of travel is the goal and daily yoga sessions the support. Inspiration Retreats are life-altering tours with a special emphasis on the arts and spiritual practices of the destination's various cultures. Past Inspiration Retreats include Sights & Sounds of North India, Sights & Sounds of Cuba, Fez World Sacred Music Festival in Morocco, and Ann's upcoming Soul of Japan: Nature + Spirit in May 2018
