Experiencing well being?
Infused with vitality?
Tapping  your creative potential?
Engaged in meaningful work, aligned with your core values?

Vidya is a Sanskrit term for a condition of wisdom conveyed through gnosis; transcending your conventional knowledge.

In this chaotic world, your bombarded senses need loving refreshment! Retreats invite clarity of vision for embracing your challenges as creative opportunities. Retreats are necessary sustenance for your well being.

To thrive in my varied roles as a woman in “mid-life” seeking to age gracefully, a mother of “adulting” Millennials, a partner in a long-time marriage, a health professional and a yogini, I use the questions (above) to regularly re-assess my well-being. What questions do you ask yourself? If it is been awhile since you have made this reflection, a retreat could be just the inspiration you need!

Collaborate with other curious hearts and minds, surrounded by natural beauty, supported in sanctuary.  I am deeply grateful for the teachings of my fellow health professionals, teachers on the path of Yoga, wise seekers, friends and patients who have co-created  Vidya Yoga Retreats.
Namaste,
Cheryl Van Demark, PT
