Apr 02, 2012 06:23AM
Iyengar yoga teacher Annie Hoffman of Art and Soul studio, in Cambridge, is leading two weekend retreats on yoga and creativity in Rockport this summer. The retreats will take place June 22 through 24 and June 29 through July 1, with an option to stay for a creativity workshop during the week. The retreats begin at 6 p.m. on Friday evening and end at noon on Sunday.
“These retreats will offer a unique integration of the power of place with the introspection of yogic mind,” says Hoffman. “Practitioners will build community through conversation and connection to self, other and nature.” Hoffman says the weekends will include five hours of guided yoga each day, along with movement, play, and time to walk in silence outdoors. Ayurvedic practitioner Veronica Wolf will prepare ayurvedic meals for retreat participants, and artist Johnny Lapham of The Big Hand will offer optional art-making workshops in the afternoons and during the week between retreats.
