“Revitalize Your Spirit” with Stacey Millner-Collins, ERYT-500

Dec 11 - 18, 2021

Join Stacey Millner-Collins, ERYT-500 and host of the national PBS program Yoga in Practice, for this nourishing week-long retreat in Sayulita, Mexico at the lovely Haramara Yoga Retreat Center overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

ABOUT THE YOGA & PHILOSOPHY 

After the last year and a half that we have all experienced, this yoga retreat is designed to re-nourish your body, mind, and soul. Classes will be geared to all levels and  will include restorative sessions with pranayama & meditation practices as well.  As a certified Anusara instructor, Stacey was drawn to the sacred space of Haramara with its “traditional yoga energy” vibe. This will be good solid, heart opening practice to remember our source (no goats, beer or swings!).

We will have  2-classes a day, in the morning  before breakfast and late afternoon before dinner, except on your travel days. After the morning class, you will have free time to do what you wish…beach, spa, surf, whale watch, pool time, nap. The yoga spaces have all the props we will need for class (including bolsters & eye pillows).

Stacey will be centering this retreat on the teachings from the Vijnana Bhairava, and using the book “The Radiance Sutras” by Lorin Roche to inspire our time on and off the mat. This text offers 112 sweet meditation practices that we will explore together in asana, discussion, and with mediation practice itself.

Packages include:

~Two alignment-based yoga classes a day, including some flow & restorative yoga, meditation, and pranayama

~Group study, contemplation  and discussion of the Vijnana Bhairava

~Hands-on assists for proper bio-mechanical alignment

~Journaling time

“Beauty is whatever gives joy.” ― Edna St. Vincent Millay

Yoga invites you to engage life fully to become skilled at being yourself. I was born a seeker and a bit of a renegade. I first came to my yoga mat in 1994 as way to unite a dedicated physical discipline with a spiritual one. Having earned a degree in Art History, I understood the universal experience of Beauty as Joy. For me this implies that when we experience something in life that inspires indescribable wonder, awe, delight…be that through art, music, nature, relationships, yoga…then we are more connected (yoked) to this precious day, to each other, and to our vital essence: our Bliss. A yoga mat is a mirror of who we are–and yoga, like life, asks for devoted practice, a quest for integrity, and a healthy dose of self–reflection.

I have had, and continue to study with, numerous respected teachers but my greatest teacher has been life itself. The deepening of my own practice impelled the spiritual explorer in me to undertake a “heroine’s quest” to Nepal in 1996 and, with my young family, to India in 1997 to study where the yoga tradition began. I learned a lot from those many months of challenging travel, but mostly, I grew into myself and appreciated the power of yoga as a daily practice on and off the mat. This experience inspired me to pioneer yoga in Columbia, SC by teaching classes for several years in kindergarten rooms, ballet schools, gyms, and church basements until our community grew to such a point that I opened City Yoga in 2003. With further in-depth and rigorous study, I became certified in Anusara Yoga in 2006 under the mentorship of John Friend and Christina Sell, and, simultaneously, embarked upon the practice and study of philosophy, meditation, and Ayurveda. My understanding of yoga philosophy & meditation has been deeply influenced by my studies with Dr. Douglas Brooks, Dr. William Mahony, and Dr. Paul Mueller-Ortega, regarded as some of the world’s leading experts in South Asian philosophy.

In 2017, I produced and hosted the first season of Yoga in Practice for South Carolina Educational Television. I will be filming my fourth season this upcoming September. This 30-minute show is broadcast in several national markets including NYC, LA, SF, Chicago, Baltimore, Minneapolis, Tucson, Austin, and several more.

My classes, workshops, and trainings encourage the inquisitive student to step into his/her own empowerment through a vigorous practice firmly rooted in the evocative philosophical teachings upon which yoga grew. Over my years of teaching I have seen all types of students, bodies, and issues…and I have come to appreciate that we ALL wish to be healthy, content, free, and fulfilled. My own yoga journey helps me to get up when I feel knocked down, to bring clarity to confusion, and to cultivate courage when I feel I have none. I want this and much more for my students no matter where they may be on the path of self-discovery.
