Yoga and Nature

Amy Allcock is a Yasodhara Ashram-trained teacher who believes in the transformative power of yoga. She spent five years living, working and teaching at Yasodhara Ashram in Kootenay Bay, BC where she received her Yasodhara Yoga teacher certification in 2014. She has taught a variety of workshops that incorporate yoga asanas, written reflection and symbolism as well as yogic tools such as mantra, meditation, and visualization. She teaches from her own experience, creating a safe and nurturing space for students to access the wisdom of their bodies and connect with the sacredness in themselves and the world. When not on the yoga mat, she can be found behind the camera lens and enjoying the great outdoors.

Tipi Camp and Yasodhara Ashram have partnered to offer this four-day retreat to help you relax, reconnect and renew.

The lake, mountains, sky and forest of Tipi Camp invite you to take refuge, to awaken to your own nature to remember your interconnection with all of life. What is it like to experience the majesty of mountains as you do Mountain pose? Or learn balance from a tree? Hike the forest trails, swim in the lake, find your special places for silence and meditation. How does nature reflect back what you need to know? Yoga & Nature can give you perspective and connect you to a sense of the sacred.

Led by Amy Allcock, a Yasodhara-Ashram trained teacher, this workshop incorporates various practices of Yasodhara Yoga, including Hidden Language Hatha Yoga, an innovative gentle and meditative style of Hatha uses metaphor, symbolism, imagery and visualization to help reveal the ‘hidden’ messages of each asana.

Each day will consist of a blend of workshops incorporating yogic practices and self-study
as well as self-directed time to explore the beautiful natural setting of Tipi Camp.

Open to all. No previous experience of yoga or Yasodhara Yoga required.
