Retreats

sharon side profileRetreats offer a weekend to leave behind the stresses of everyday life and focus on your relationship with Christ in a serene mountain setting.

Lakeview at Fontana is a beautiful boutique inn and spa nestled in the mountains of Bryson City, NC with a gorgeous view of Fontana Lake.  Ultra-casural and friendly, it provides the perfect setting for your relaxing getaway, and includes an onsite hiking trail, dedicated yoga studio, spa, courtyard and coffeehouse.

 

Retreat Description:

Explore the union of the healing physical benefits of yoga and meditation with the spiritual life of a Christian in this special retreat based on Psalm 46:10:  “Be still and know that I am God.”  It is in stillness that we can truly hear God’s voice and find peace in His presence.

Turn your practice into a moving meditation through both active flowing and gentle restorative yoga classes set to contemporary praise music, and find stillness and rest through Scripture-focused guided meditation/contemplative prayer sessions.  By focusing your mind fully on Christ, beginners and seasoned practitioners alike will leave the weekend feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and filled with God’s peace.

 

What to expect from a Retreat:

  • Four 75 min. Yoga/Contemplative Prayer sessions throughout the weekend to nourish your spirit
  • Lots of down time to relax, read a novel, go on a hike, or get a massage to nourish your soul
  • Healthy meals to nourish the body, plus wine and cheese!
  • A chance to fellowship with other Christian yogis who are using yoga to deepen their relationship with Christ
  • Much-needed rest, reflection and renewal
