LIFTING THE VEIL: HIDDEN MARRAKECH
WITH KELLY AND SONDRA LORING
NOVEMBER 4-11, 2018
Marrakech is a city of mystery... ancient terra-cotta walls sprinkled with magical little doorways that lead to secret gardens, the haze of incense smoke in the morning and evening as the call to prayer rings over the rooftops, mazes of alleys filled with sparkling treasures to take home. Marrakech is so tantalizing that I've lead three retreats there already in just a year and a half! It captivates you with its colors and scents, with its snow capped Atlas Mountains in the distance, its roadside camels, and its unbelievably delicious food.
Each morning we have coffee and tea, then do an hour and a half of yoga, followed by brunch. We'll spend time doing a service project in the community, which is a great way to connect with the locals. Afternoons are made for exploring. Nearby are the markets (souk), Yves Saint Laurent's house and garden museum (Majorelle), the grand square Jemaa El-Fnna, the photography museum, Koutoubia Palace, the Kasbah (yes, that Kasbah!), the Saadian Tombs and so much more! Our hotel is walking distance to everything. We'll also head up to the Atlas Mountains one day, about an hour outside of town, to walk in the hills, explore waterfalls and experience real Berber life. $1200 total, shared room. Options available for single rooms as well as a discounted price for friends and partners who want to come but don't want to do yoga!

MYTHICAL VINYASA IMMERSION
KRIPALU, LENOX MA
June 1-3, 2018
Take a spirited voyage through the myths behind yoga poses. Kelly Kamm’s powerful combination of yoga practice, storytelling, mudra, and mantra lights your way to self-awakening and joy. Each session of this program begins with a mythical tale followed by an all-levels vinyasa class in which the themes of the myth are woven throughout. The program includes mudras (yoga for your hands) with each story that inspire elevated states of consciousness and mantras sung in call-and-response (kirtan) style.
Myths are like mirrors that meet you right where you are in life, guiding you through difficult moments with more grace and ease. Throughout this program, Kelly shares the stories of Ganesha, Hanuman, Lakshmi, and Saraswati so you can learn more about yourself along the way.
As Joseph Campbell said, the first function of myth is to help you realize “what a wonder the universe is, what a wonder you are, and to experience awe before this mystery.” Come if you are feeling stuck, come if you need inspiration, come if you like artful yoga sequencing, or come if you just love stories!
