Resolve & Rest

mini-retreat: yoga nidra + sankalpa

At the start of yoga class, we are often cued to set an intention, a statement as to why we are here and what we are hoping to receive. We can do the same at the start of a new year or a new life chapter. Join Taryn in a mini-retreat all about honing your focus and preparing for new experiences.


‘…your mind has measureless capacity to affect the quality and the content of your life.’  — Rod Stryker 


This mini-retreat is designed to assist you with gently shifting some negative thought patterns in the mind towards the positive. With skill, you can dig around the questions:

— How do I want to experience this year?

— What ingredients can I carry with me?

— How best can I plant the seed, to embody my intention?


The Resolve & Rest mini-retreat includes:

  1. A discussion on the efficacy of intention-setting. Taryn explores what the yogis knew about the mind in ancient times, and surprising links to what neuroscientists now know about the brain

  2. A sanklapa workbook co-designed by Taryn and Sydney Fletcher 

  3. A gentle movement practice to prepare the body for deep rest

  4. Yoga nidra practice, to plant the seed of your intention


Craft a personalized intention (sankalpa) to amplify your experience of ease and nourishment as the body and intellect rest deeply in a nidra practice.  Join Taryn to cultivate empowerment as you learn about neuroplasticity and new understanding of how your mind works.
