“Elevate” An Express Retreat To Start The New Year Off Right

January 25 @ 6:00 pm - January 27 @ 1:00 pm


3 Intentions + 5 Practices = Major Shift

Are you stuck? Do you want to feel better but don’t know where to begin?
Are you contemplating a change in life but are coming up against fear?
Do you sense you aren’t rising to your full potential?

The tools of yoga are the perfect methodology for moving closer to our highest and best self.

Elevate is a weekend soulshop that helps you set 3 intentions (sankalpa) for the New Year and
apply 5 practices (yoga, meditation, attitude, connection, sleep) that support the manifestation of
your heart’s desire. We will also look at what gets in the way of our intentions coming to fruition
(i.e., fear, motivation, and other’s expectations for us).

Use the power of the New Year, the accountability and support of community, and the reliable tools
of yoga to get you where you want to be in 2019.This program helps you commit to a new lifestyle,
and create the positive changes you know will most support your growth and evolution.

Retreat Leaders: Betsy Rippentrop  & Marsha Nieland

Betsy Rippentrop found yoga 18 years ago while attempting to survive graduate school and the course of her life was forever changed. She is the ultimate “seeker” and cannot seem to drink up enough knowledge and training in yoga, meditation, energy work, esoteric spirituality and mind body medicine. She also holds a PhD in counseling psychology and owns Heartland Yoga. Weaving together the wisdom traditions of yoga and psychology are her life’s work, with the intention of expanding people’s consciousness, creating more joy, and less suffering.

Marsha Nieland is a certified yoga and meditation teacher, an intuitive artist and a seeker of optimal health and wellness. She has worked in the health arena for over 30 years and is the owner of Fusion Studio. Marsha offers destination yoga retreats in the US and internationally, and enjoys mentoring and developing new yoga teachers through her teacher training programs.
