Now that the world has survived into 2013, we have a new retreat, “May I Be Happy: Getting Aligned for the New Year” with renowned yoga teacher Cyndi Lee to help you start the year off right. 

Combining basic yoga instruction, mindfulness meditation, and maitri (lovingkindness) practice, Cyndi will help us bring our attention to ourselves and our own needs. By cultivating our own happiness and healthiness, Cyndi says, we can create a template for taking care of others. 

In the first week of the retreat, “May I Be Happy” Cyndi goes over the importance of taking care of ourselves, showing us how do it in three ways: by bringing our attention to the distractions in our lives, committing to regular (but short) practice, and asking, “What would it take for me to feel happy?”
