We are so excited to invite you to the NEXT LEVEL of the INBODY yoga retreat, lead by D'ana Baptiste.
INBODY retreats start with the metamorphosis of the individual. We do this by revealing to you, in “measurable” ways, your own strength, grace, and power. In short, INBODY retreats give you the opportunity to tangibly experience your Self revealed.
D’ana’s asana, pranayama, and meditation sequence will take you through the chakra system to re-balance and re-fire all the energy centers of the body. This works wonders, unlocking your individual true power; that part of yourself meant to shine into the world. Use all that shiny energy to do more, be more, and live from a place of individual integrity. If you feel like you’ve been “stuck” for a while, or have an inkling that you are “distracting” yourself but don’t quite know how to “find your path”, or have noticed self-defeating behavior in your everyday life, this is the retreat for you! D’ana has a real gift for introducing your strength, your beauty, your essence to you in a way that is easily experienced, embraced and embodied. We don't want to give away any of the surprises but rest assured you will be taking a deep dive in to your mind/body connection, asking some hard questions, making new friends, shedding lots of tears and enjoying too many LAUGHS to count. In the end you will be a breath of fresh air.
Why is D'ana Baptiste the ultimate teacher to take you on this journey?
With over 24 years of teaching, managing, owning yoga studios, and running yoga retreats and teacher trainings, D’ana’s hands on experience in the yoga industry is what makes this Inbody Yoga Academy so powerful, authentic, and transformational. She formed INBODY OUTREACH, a non-profit “yoga army,” to bring yoga to those in need. She honed her own integrated teaching style while teaching in the Bay Area, Philadelphia, Boston, Utah, Mexico, & even on International seas. D’ana honors the pioneers of the American Yoga Movement, who introduced an eagerness to question, improve upon, and continue discovering this transformational tradition. Without the influences of Walt Baptiste, Bikram Choudhury, Ana Forrest, Nancy Gilgoff, Gary Kraftsow, and John Friend, D’ana’s unique integration of many different styles of Yoga would simply not be as rich as it is today. What D’ana has so expertly done is unified these many influences to create an offering that is inclusive of all methods. By not placing one style over another, she encourages teacher trainees to weave all of these styles into an offering that is ultimately their own; something new and raw and maybe even a little rebellious. She currently owns and operates Centered City Yoga.
