New Year Rejuvenation Retreat 2018

Presented by: Kate Mitcheom and Ellen Saltonstall

New Year Rejuvenation Retreat is a unique opportunity to spend 7 days with two leaders in the field of mindfulness and yoga! Along with daily Yoga and Bodymind Ballwork, there will be daily Meditation and Mindfulness. This retreat combines these transformative practices with ample amounts of free time for excursions, adventures and relaxation. Most, if not all, of the benefits of meditation that you read about in the media are from MBSR (Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction). Kate was trained in MBSR at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center with Jon Kabat-Zinn and has been teaching at the Center for Mindfulness and practicing for over 20 years. Kate comes with a history of working for 36 years as a Nurse-midwife, creating a group prenatal care model that incorporated Mindfulness and Yoga. She is a trained Energy Medicine Practitioner and a Registered Yoga Teacher in the Anusara style and a Certified Yoga for Osteoporosis teacher.

Ellen has over 35 years of experience teaching yoga and Bodymind Ballwork. She is a certified yoga therapist with a special interest in teaching people of all ages and physical conditions to discover their fullest potential through these transformative practices.

In Bodymind Ballwork, we use rubber balls varying sizes and texture (as small as a walnut and as big as a melon), which support, massage and stretch localized areas of the body. There are techniques for every part of you, from head to toes. The result is a wonderful feeling of lightness and ease in the body, and quiet alertness in the mind.

Both Ellen and Kate come with extensive experience in group process and teaching. They are attuned to adapting any practice to any body or mind, regardless of previous experience, age, ability or endurance. Their style is heartfelt and encouraging, joined with serious professionalism and light hearted humor.

Please join us for this one-of-a-kind experience in the jungles of Costa Rica!
