A Summer Weekend Retreat on the River

“LET US DANCE IN THE SUN, WEARING WILD FLOWERS IN OUR HAIR…” ~SUSAN POLIS SHUTZ
With Rachel Kay Brookmire
Casa Om Potomac, West Virginia 
July 17 – 19, 2020
 
 
Enjoy a summer weekend retreat, filled with belly dance, yin yoga, meditation, and relaxation in nature. This all-inclusive, special retreat is led by Rachel Kay Brookmire, founder and director of Sahara Dance, and includes home-cooked vegetarian meals, lovely accommodations, and guided programming designed to offer women of all movement backgrounds an intimate experience exploring dance, yin yoga and mindfulness meditation. No dance, meditation or yoga experience required and all levels welcome!  Classes will be tailored to engage all experience levels.
 
Come rejuvenate your body and mind. Experiment with playful, heart-centered dance and mindfulness themes to develop grace and gentleness in your movement practice. Stretch, open and align your body with yin yoga. Deepen your awareness and center yourself through mindfulness meditation. Strengthen your dance training with slow, stretchy flow sequences and playful, upbeat combinations. Escape the bustle of city living and decompress with laughter, shimmies and nature.
