Movement Medicine:

The Healing Magic of Yoga and Nia

September 16-19, 2021
Art of Living Retreat Center – Boone, North Carolina

Are you ready to immerse yourself into the magic healing powers of movement as medicine?

As children, we naturally move, condition, and heal our bodies. As we mature, we may lose our connection with the wisdom within ourselves.

Marybeth and Niki will guide and support you as you go on a journey of movement as medicine for your body, mind and spirit. Our program is based on the concept that, through movement and alignment, we can self-heal. We define “healing” as being able to say “I feel better.”

About The Retreat

Our retreat is carefully crafted to offer you a relaxing, healing, and transformative experience. Return home with a deeper understanding of how to incorporate physical practices into your life; understanding that the purpose of your practice is not to look a certain way, but to enjoy a healthy and joyful state of living.

Open to everyone; all levels of yoga experience. The program may be of particular interest to caregivers and individuals living with chronic stress, injury, or illness. No dance experience necessary.

Past Guests Say

“I could not have imagined how much this retreat would shift my perspective, challenge me physically, spiritually, and emotionally. It was a perfect balance of human connection, exercise (that exercised your body and mind simultaneously), and quiet reflection. The group was phenomenal and embracing and I could not recommend this retreat more!”

“There was such a great balance between activities and opportunities for rest and relaxation. How did you do that? I felt such support for each choice I made in terms of creating what was the perfect mix tailored for my own needs. Thank you!”

“This retreat was an amazing experience. Marybeth and Niki were so thoughtful and detail oriented about every aspect of the retreat. I felt cared for and comfortable. I also felt free to choose to participate as much as I wanted with the group, or to spend time doing my own thing.”
