Harvesting the Heart: Living Presence Yoga Retreat

YOGA RETREAT with Elizabeth Rainey

This retreat is an invitation to come home to yourself and to reconnect to the wisdom and beauty of your own embodiment. Through the practices of somatic movement and deep perceiving as well as yoga asana, pranayama and meditation we will re-enliven our deep and abiding presence of being. We will slow down to allow ourselves to reclaim the innate rhythm of our body and revel in the nourishment of this sacred land and enriching waters. You are invited to join this circle of renewal and rediscover your own wild and deep Living Presence.

Breitenbush is a remote forest retreat of timeless natural beauty, blessed with abundant hot springs, a glacier-fed river and surrounding mountains. Soak in The Meadow Pools lined in smooth river rocks or the four Spiral Hot Tubs of varying temperature. Enjoy the Steam Sauna, a cedar cabin perched above steaming waters. A spirit of respect and sanctuary pervades the clothing-optional soaking pools. Cozy, rustic, year-round cabins (some with bathrooms) give many options for your stay. Men's and women’s bathhouses serve the needs of those in cabins without bathrooms. Bountiful organic vegetarian meals are served buffet style three times daily. They honor requests for egg-free, dairy-free and gluten-free meals.  For more details visit

She has been teaching for 17 years and is devoted to co-creating a space of wild inquiry with her students. She is deeply influenced by her ongoing studies in Somatic Experiencing, Contimuum, and Meditation. Rainey is C-IAYT and E-RYT-500 certified yoga teacher and therapist.
