Flow and RestThe Program

Join experienced yoga teacher LIKA ELWOOD for a three-day, two-night yoga getaway at the beautiful eco-friendly Blue Mountain Retreat Center in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Delicious, home-cooked, organic, gluten-free meals are provided. A “Welcome Dinner” will be served on Friday evening. Throughout your stay, you will be guided mindful yoga practices that encourage you to stay present in nature, your environment, and yourself and connect with your breath. This weekend will help quiet your mind, release stress and tension, and explore your body’s potential for mindful movement.

The schedule will include energizing yoga asana, restorative and yin yoga, meditation, optional hikes in the trails nearby, free time for being in nature, reading, yoga-ing, connecting with yourself and your friends.

This retreat is suitable for students of all levels and abilities. No yoga experience is necessary or required. You are welcome to participate in as much or as little as you like.

Lika's Bio

 Lika’s dream came true when she completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2010 in Washington DC, becoming a full-time yoga teacher. Initially Lika ( E-RYT 200) was drawn to yoga as a way to maintain her flexibility and strength but was intimidated by yoga's spiritual and scholastic side which she did not find in previous experiences with ballet and modern dance. After a short time however she discovered the power of yoga as a path to a more balanced, compassionate, meaningful and happy life.

 Lika teaches well-sequenced yoga classes and workshops focused on creating a comfortable, non-competitive and SAFE space where students can explore their practice while challenging themselves regardless of their background and level of their practice. She incorporates guided meditation, pranayama and aromatherapy in her classes, always encouraging her students to find one breath at the time and be their own teachers by taking what serves them and leaving what does not.

Over the years, Lika continued her education and training in different styles of yoga, including Vinyasa Flow, Prana Flow, Ashtanga, Rocket Yoga, Jivamukti, Kids yoga, Aerial yoga, Yoga Nidra, Meditation and Restorative yoga. She has studied under the guidance of well known teachers such as David Williams, David Swenson, Shiva Rea, David Kyle, Tara Brach, Christina Sell and others. Lika continues to evolve as she sees herself in the position of student and a practitioner first and only then a teacher.
