Venue and Local Area
From the Elohee Website:
“The ecosystems of the Blue Ridge Mountains are exceptionally diverse. They range from moist, deep-soiled forested valleys to exposed ridges, mountain tops and balds. At Elohee we have planned our facilities to highlight these different niches and dynamic energies, so that we may more easily join the plants and animals and elements in discovering our own personal edge – where our growth is new and tender, where transformation is just emerging.
We believe this conscious partnership with the land and nature aids in transformation by enlivening our connection to the force of evolution. It provides the opportunity to explore healing on whatever level that you find as personally meaningful, be that physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.
It is in this spirit that we translate El’-oh-hee as “sacred earth place.” In Cherokee, ElohÏ combines the roots ela or elo, meaning earth, and hÏ, place. From the ancient Hebrew, we have Elohim, invoking the sacred.”
This beautiful place of retreat and renewal is the perfect place to dive more deeply into your yoga practice and connect with Spirit. This retreat will invite you to gain inspiration from the breathtaking outer landscape to traverse your own vibrant and dynamic inner landscape. Connect with Nature outside to Nurture Yourself and return to your daily life feeling renewed!
