Savor the Moment: A Pine Island Day Retreat
February 1, 2020 - St. James Civic Center (changed due to weather)
with Jaime Boswell & Kathy Fotterall
Deep within we always know what we need to find peace and joy, by simply taking the time to slow down, and be present with ourselves we can learn to tune into our inherent wisdom.
"Presence. Your thoughts create. Your actions matter. Your presence changes everything. Align with your essence, know your place, stand up fully in yourself, and greet each moment afresh." ~ Kathy Tyler & Joy Drake
During this retreat, take the time to be fully present with your whole self, and practice the joys of being fully present with others. We will explore together how moment to moment presence is something to savor.
The practice of yoga - of deepening self-awareness, of letting go and realizing your full potential and deep joy - is a journey of the self which is enriched and strengthened when you walk the path with others.
If you are interested in connecting, deepening your yoga practice, and cultivating radical presence, join us!!!
This retreat is open to all levels of practice, only open minds and open hearts required.
Through this single day retreat you can expect to:
Move through an all-levels practice to align with your essence,
Rest and rejuvenate through a deep guided healing relaxation (yoga nidra),
Walk, talk, eat and connect with others on the same path as you, and
Take away a deeper understanding of how to savor all moments in your life.

Jaime's passions in life include yoga, travel, adventure, and sharing these things with others. Her mission in business and in life is to help others find more joyful living through yoga. Experiencing a yoga retreat is one of the ways that Jaime has seen students really open to the peace and joy that yoga can bring. As a therapeutic yoga teacher, Jaime also believes in meeting students where there are, and helping them to find a practice that is just right for their unique mind, body and spirit. Jaime has been teaching now for over 12 years, and during that time has had the privilege to continue growing as a student and teacher of yoga. Her formal teacher training has primarily been in the Kripalu tradition, with a 200-hr certification in Kripalu Yoga, and 800-hr in advanced studies in the Kripalu Integrative Yoga Therapy program with Joseph LePage at the Kripalu School of Yoga. Jaime’s teaching does not reflect one particular type of yoga, but is influenced by the array of teachers and traditions that have inspired her over the years. Her classes can be described as heart-centered, alignment-based, where students are encouraged to find personal challenge while maintaining a sense of ease.
Kathy, "a Warrior Goddess in the Wisdom Years”, has spent the last 12 years studying and practicing Yoga. She received her initial 200 hour certification in 2008 from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, and went on to complete the 500 hour level training in Yoga Therapy with the Pranakriya School of Yoga Healing Arts. With a deep passion for health, Kathy has investigated a variety of healing modalities, including in depth studies in Positional Therapy with Lee Albert at Kripalu. Trainings with Yoganand Michael Carroll, Tias Little, Stephen Cope, and Marlysa Sullivan have all helped Kathy to bring more awareness and healing to herself, and a deeper understanding from which she can fully share all the benefits of yoga with students and friends. Kathy brings to her teaching an enthusiastic belief that the mat is your refuge - the place to be you without judgment, the place of compassion and acceptance to trust yourself first, listen to your body and move into stillness. Kathy steps onto her mat as the teacher with deep gratitude for the wisdom her teachers and students share with her.
