Nature Writing and Yoga Retreat

Yoga instructor Kristine Ringler and creative writing teacher Robert Balch will team up once again for an all-day Nature Writing and Yoga retreat being held April 29 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Cornwall's beautiful Black Rock Forest Consortium Lodge.

Attendees will get a chance to explore what it truly means to be mindful. The day will begin with a brief discussion of the practice of grounding and what it means to set intentions. Included in the program will be a gentle yoga practice, various writing exercises and framed discussions, a silent meditation, and a nature walk. The time together will come to a close with a community circle in the amphitheater on the grounds.

Kristine Ringler is a 200 hour RYT, mother, veteran and research consultant. She teaches both adults and children’s yoga, and meditation classes in the Hudson River Valley. She has taught yoga to cadets and veterans at West Point and routinely discusses the benefits of yoga and meditation within the community.

Robert Balch has taught English in the Beacon City School District for 18 years, and has been a Fellow of the National Writing Project since 2004. His particular focus is teaching nature writing in authentic settings, and he has led numerous workshops in this field.

Cost: $120. For more information, questions, or to reserve your place, contact Kristine Ringler at 612- 616-7031 or kringler@gmail.com. Space is limited.
