Christy Brown

New Year’s Day Yoga & Meditation Retreat

with Christy Brown
Thursday and Friday, January 1-2, 2015
Attend either or both days

Begin 2015 feeling strong and centered in body, calm and clear in mind, and open-hearted, together with a sangha of like-minded, warm and welcoming friends and practitioners. Join us in Point Reyes Station for this spacious and meditative non-residential retreat—to journey inward, unplug from life’s fast pace, dive into deep practice, and set an intentional and inspired tone for the year to come! All ages and levels welcome.

Back by popular demand, the talented musician and yoga teacher, Mirabai, will lead us in kirtan or devotional singing and chanting (at the beginning and end of our Thursday yoga sessions), which she does so beautifully, from such a warm and grounded place—toward ever more inspired and sublime states of consciousness.

This non-residential retreat will take place at Yoga Toes Studio, which is located in a historic barn in the coastal and picturesque rural town of Point Reyes Station (one hour north of San Francisco). Please note: neither lodging nor meals are included. Optional dinners at Manka’s and Stellina are priced separately.

If you’re traveling from out of town and/or wish to stay in the Point Reyes vicinity, please visit for lodging recommendations (from hostels and camping to exquisite B&Bs).
