There’s nothing quite like a good yoga immersion to reignite your passion for your practice.
We all care about this practice, and it has changed all of us in ways we could never imagine. Being present in a studio, surrounded by other practitioners who are ready to learn, breathe, and grow, allows us to celebrate every beautiful moment on the mat that has led us to the present.
If you’re staying local for the week (we know this is major vacation time) and are looking to celebrate, rejuvenate, or just enjoy your practice, here are the places, spaces, and events you need to check out.
We’d also love for you to read our newest article on the EMPOWER training at the Atlantic Club. Louisa, the leader of the training, is the beautiful yogi in our main picture for this post and we are SO inspired by the YTT she is kicking off in September. If you’ve been looking for a great spot to train, this might just be the one…
