One Week Intensive
The Shrine of St. Therese is known to local residents as a place of special beauty. Overlooking the Lynn Canal,
may go there to let creation and the majesty of God wash over them like a healing balm. Upon arrival in Juneau, we will take private transportation to The Shrine of St. Therese (located approximately 25 miles north of Juneau) where we will engage with the serenity of the surrounding area that includes a beautiful rocky beach, whales swimming nearby and hiking trails.
Come to the last frontier to explore the greatest domain – Self. In a rustic yet comfy Alaskan retreat center built on a rocky beach and dedicated as a place of spiritual exploration and renewal, participants will give themselves the unique opportunity of devote an entire week to their yoga practice, free from the demands of their regular routine. Participants will use foundational knowledge of yoga to explore a deeper understanding of Self. Participants are encouraged to compare/contrast different perspectives on recurring themes in yoga philosophy to define their own interpretations. Through satsang (group discussion), swadyaya (self-study), seva (community-building service), and astanga yoga (practicing the eight limbs) among YogaFit friends in Alaska wilderness, participants will discover Self within, among, and around.
