Join our weekend of writing, yoga and retreat
Imagine a serene setting of calm and companions, nestled in the Texas Hill Country on the banks of a placid creek. Picture yoga that can stretch you gently, writing that reaches your truest places. Savor the taste of chef-created vegetarian meals, and the cozy dreams that follow days shared with friends old and brand-new.
You can have it all for a magic weekend in November's placid Fall at the Write Yoga retreat, nurtured at the Namaste Retreat Center. It's just 90 minutes south of Austin's Town Lake, or 30 minutes from San Antonio. You'll know you're nearing it by the oak limbs that you hear in the breeze of the Hill Country's quiet, the sound sweeping down to the bank of Cibolo Creek. Evenings are for sharing the gentle friendships formed during our three days.
We will gather on Friday for our retreat at the Namaste house, a cozy, enticing embrace of a stone home complete with pool and hot tub, a writing room walled by glass, and a warming, generous space to practice gentle, relaxing yoga. Our commune will wind through the early afternoon of Sunday, when we bid farewell to Namaste and depart with our fresh writing, rejuvenation and the refreshed insights into our hearts.
Writing with Ron
Novelist and Writer's Workshop founder Ron Seybold leads you in prompts and exercises to capture your creation. In the simple Hatha and Kundalini yoga sessions, integrated with writing, anyone can reach parts of their creativity and peace that only the heart knew. You can wake with a yoga session to start your day, spark your creativity with short writing, or simply luxuriate in the beauty and serenity of a weekend among friends of the heart. Lisa's healthy breakfasts, scrumptious lunches, and enticing dinners keep us well-nourished, body and soul.
Accomodations to gather us in community
The sleeping spaces in Namaste are shared, whether in the Hill Country Room, the Quilt Room, or the other cozy spots throughout the house. Bring a friend to enjoy the retreat together, or meet a roommate, someone who shares your yen to create and share. (Women and men rest in separate rooms.) We become a family for the retreat's weekend, stretching out in ease to enjoy our home along Cibolo Creek. Commune by the pool, in the cozy Red Lady Den, on the rambling back deck that faces the creek, on in the hot tub while the stars come out on the Texas nights.
Writing and stretching simply, easily, finding fun and gentle truths
Whether you're a brand-new writer or one experienced and ready to explore, whether you practice yoga and meditation daily or want to first dip your toes into the waters of movement, our methods will bring fresh light to your limbs and warmth to your words. We share in a rich circle of the joy of practice, all without judgement and within a safe space. Seventeen years ago the Writer's Workshop practice was born in the same blend of yoga and writing. I learned an amazing mix that melds physical limbering and a stretch of creativity. On my first retreat, I touched parts of my voice I was not able to reach before.
