Yoga Retreat "To Bring" List

I can't believe I'm going on my first yoga retreat ever. Woo-hoo!

Clearly, I am very, very excited.

Here's what my best friend and I are going to do:

4:15pm yoga
7:30pm whole foods cooking class

9am detox Sara, maybe Andy (guided hike @ 9)
11am Ayurveda class
4:15pm yoga class

6:30am yoga (Andy?)
9am becoming whole class
11am yoga and nutrition (Sara) share circle (Andy)
noon dance
1:30pm kayaking
4:15pm yoga

11am awakening the six senses class

What are my goals for the retreat? (I'm going to force myself to prioritize them from most to least important.)
  1. To relax and rejuvenate
  2. To learn new skills for a healthier lifestyle
  3. To spend quality time with my best friend

Having a sense of my goals will help guide my decision making (it's Starting with the End in Mind!). For example, if my number one goal is to relax and rejuvenate, then I am going to give myself permission to skip classes if I start to feel overwhelmed.

If it's more important for me to learn new skills rather than spend quality time with Andy (since I talk to him on the phone every day), then I'll make sure that I go to the classes that truly interest me instead of trying to reach consensus with Andy so we go to all the same classes.

So what do I need to bring with me?
  1. Four days of yoga clothes
  2. Yoga mat + bag
  3. Camera
  4. Phone + charger
  5. Library books
  6. Sunscreen
  7. Portable blanket so I can relax on the grass?
  8. Writer's Notebook
  9. Bathing suit
  10. Chacos
  11. Snatch It

Excitedly yours!

Hey Sara,

Just had a meeting with Matt and he suggested that you volunteer at KIPP and organize my desk....so, you know, whenever you have time. :)
