The Santosha Retreat
Miraval, Arizona Resort & Spa in Tucson
October 12 – 17, 2012 with Lea Kraemer
Santosha means contentment. I invite you to dive into practices of mind-body-being on
deeper and more delicious levels. The intention is to lead a happy, truly whole and giving
life. We are fortunate to be able to hold this retreat in an environment of great beauty,
which has been developed with great care. The process of a Yoga Retreat is indeed a
blessing, which will set you on a course of balance for the rest of the year!
The Santosha Retreat includes:
* Participate in up to 7 hours of Yoga & Meditation practices each day.
* Chanting, Yoga and self-reflection at dawn. Ambrosial morning Meditation is one of the
most beautiful spiritual practices. The early sessions will be held outside, weather permitting,
in the awakened presence of the mountains.
* Each day a long morning or mid-day Kundalini Yoga practice. Utilize the power of breath,
movement and guided visualization to create joy and inner harmony. 2 hour class.
* Evening Chanting or Meditation program. Yoga postures will be given, but with less vigor
after the evening meal! May also include walking or dancing meditations (Dancing Sapta) or
a drumming circle, as the group requests.
* Sattvic (peaceful) living. A Yoga retreat with Lea offers a personal experience of what it
feels like to hold the qualities of bliss and contentedness within your Self. It is suggested to
eat a Vegetarian diet, refrain from alcohol, and to stay purposefully inwardly focused during
