An Early Spring Burst of Yoga and Inspiration

Come and enjoy this weekend immersion. It’s a perfect opportunity to set aside a specific block of time to envision your wellness game plan for Spring. Our time together will be a plentiful mix of yoga, fresh food, and health-focused learning; you’ll be surrounded by nature and beauty, indoors and out.
When you leave, both your body and mind will feel light and inspired!
 Space is limited to a handful of participants so call now to register for this exclusive experience: 208-255-8458.
You see it in nature: the way of spring is
emergence and new growth.
At this time of year, we have stamina,
you can push yourself a bit;
after a winter of long nights,
less movement and comfort foods,
your body is ready.

This immersion is ideal for those who are ready to create healthy changes in their lives from the inside out. Stepping outside of our daily routines and environments gives us the opportunity to reset our body as well as our mind. This allows us to bring into focus what we truly want most in our lives. Today, let’s start today.


18 acres of private wilderness...

We’re tucked away on 18 acres of private wilderness with a panoramic view of the Cabinet Mountains. You never know what you might spot out the huge panoramic windows; perhaps a moose and her twins swimming across the acre-wide pond, a great blue heron fishing for his dinner, or a family of deer grazing in the meadow. The environment, both in and outdoors, lends itself naturally to a sense of healing and reprieve. All of this wilderness playground is only one mile from downtown Sandpoint and five minutes from the base of Schweitzer Mountain Resort!

Reconnect to the natural world...

In Yoga and Ayurveda we see that we are not separate from anything but rather, fully connected to all that we do and the world around us. Our external environment feeds us. When we take time to remember that we are actually part of nature we can take the edge off of our busy lives.

We’ll spend intentional time outside just to absorb the beauty. There will be options for strolls and walks interspersed throughout your stay. For those who are interested, there are nearby hiking trails. Reconnect to the natural world that supports you everyday.


Seasonally Specific Curriculum

In Spring there’s a natural sense of heaviness as a result of the long nights, cold temperatures and heavier foods. Along with that heaviness, we also have a grounded strength; the way to counter the heaviness it to use the strength.​ Our yoga classes will be geared to help your body “shake off the winter heavy” and the learning curriculum will teach you how to take the principles and practices home with you.

Take Home Wisdom

While out of your usual environment, you’ll have a wonderful schedule set up for you that includes nourishing food, time for rest and reflection, as well as a luxurious dose of mindful movement. This is the beauty of retreat.

​We also want you to leave with tools that will help you to build more health and resiliency in your life. ​At this retreat you’ll learn some incredibly useful tips for how to create healthful habits that stick.​ Yoga and Ayurveda have a wealth of knowledge about how to respond to the needs of your physiology on a daily basis; when you do that, quality of life goes up and dis-ease is reduced. We’re excited to share this practical self-care wisdom with you.

A bit about Sarah...

I am a yoga teacher, mother and self-care evangelist. Yoga has been my dear friend for over 20 years. I’ve trained extensively with master teacher Ana Forrest and have been sharing the wisdom of yoga with others since 2006. I am committed to studying the human body, how we take in nutrients and let go of the old.

I’ve dedicated a large portion of my life to studying and sharing the principles of everyday wellness as a massage therapist, a professional cook, a yoga instructor and a yoga health coach. I deeply believe that personal health education is an avenue for living our fullest and most impactful lives. I’ve been helping others invest in their wellness education for over 15 years.

Yoga and Ayurveda have taught me that everything my body comes into contact with on a daily basis will impact how I show up in my life and relationships; this understanding has been paramount in my personal satisfaction. It is my aim to generously offer what I learn to our community in a down-to-earth way.

"What I offer to you in this retreat..."

“This weekend will give you a quality experience and education in the art of yoga and mind-body care, which are lifetime processes that continually unfold and evolve. I love offering inspiration, support and encouragement that help you to forge a new course towards the way of living you most desire. I aim to meet you where you’re at; we start from there. Along the way we’ll have some fun; cheers to a joyful, radiant life! ” -Sarah Rusnak

“We strive to find balance in our day to day living, and along the way we learn to love being in our own skin. We use yoga as a tool to keep our body, mind and soul evolving in health. We develop practical skills to refine the ART of self-care. Together we travel from being “too-busy-to-have-balance” towards a supple, strong YOU that lives and ages with grace.” – Sarah Rusnak
