We invite you to join us for an unforgettable experience: MIMSY Meditation in Movement Style Yoga®, “The Softer Side of Yoga”, a week long retreat at the Feathered Pipe Ranch, one of the country’s premier retreat centers!
MIMSY Meditation in Movement Style Yoga®– is a unique style of yoga for your back, hips, spine and mind that was created by Lanita Varshell, Founder of A Gentle Way Yoga and Joyful Movement Center in San Diego. Join her for a relaxing retreat week at Feathered Pipe for “The Sofer Side of Yoga”.
MIMSY Meditation in Movement Style Yoga® is Lanita’s trademarked style. Lanita began teaching full time in 1996. She opened A Gentle Way Yoga Center in San Diego, Ca for those like her, would be intimidated or easily injured practicing yoga at gyms or more active Yoga Studios. 85% Of the group classes at A Gentle Way focus on those who are aging and need a slower, safer practice; students who are larger; less flexible; new to yoga; or in need of deep stress relief. Lanita Varshell has taught over 10,000 group classes, and has trained yoga teachers since 1998.
Through this journey Lanita developed this very gentle, and doable MIMSY Style of yoga that’s so important for every body.
For those new or returning to taking care of themselves, it will be an easy, fun way to connect to all the wonderful parts of you – body, mind, breath and spirit you. For the fit keeping fit, MIMSY Meditation in Movement Style Yoga® is a missing link to your more active practice, and may be the deepest or most interesting yoga work you will ever do. Yoga Teachers will experience a multi-level, new way of teaching classes and supporting their students.
For 40 years now, the Ranch has been home to yoga and meditation retreats and a host of other personal growth programs that help us experience our wholeness and remember our intimate connection to all of life. Many of today’s foremost voices on yoga, meditation, wellness and health have come through our doors at one time or another, with many of them getting their start as a student through our scholarship fund. Joseph Campbell, Dr. Andrew Weil, Lilias Folan, Angela Farmer, Rodney Yee, Patricia Walden, Erich Schiffmann, Judith Hanson Lasater, Seane Corn, and world-renowned Native American flutists, R. Carlos Nakai – to name only a few – are honored alumni of the Feathered Pipe.
