Yoga at Crystal Creek

Below are some dreamy images from Saturday and Sunday’s Yoga Day Retreats at Crystal Creek in Issaquah, Washington.

The retreat days are filled with an all-level Hatha yoga morning session, a deliciously nourishing lunch, connecting to other people interested in living a healthy and holistic lifestyle, and a two-hour hike on Squak Mountain, whose trail is within a short walk from the beautiful studio where our yoga sessions are held.  Some people like to opt out of the hike and enjoy reading or napping.  In lieu of hiking, some yoga participants like to hang out in the yoga studio, lying next to the fireplace, draped over bolsters, the ultimate experience in relaxation! The hike or free time is followed by restorative yoga.

Our host, Cathy, is an artist.  You can see her artistic touch from her flower arrangements to the meals she cooks!  She and her home are PURE MAGIC.

On our walk back to the studio, we saw a tree peony which was much larger than Dayna's hand
