Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and cheer and give strength to body and soul alike. – John Muir

Joanna loves to find like-minded people to collaborate with to bring unique experiences to the body, mind and soul of her students. When she met Heather Murphy and began to get to know her, she knew that they must work together on a retreat to combine their offerings.

Heather Murphy is a wildlife biologist by training but for many years has shared her passion for birding and for teaching the art of nature observation through journaling. The practice of nature observation and birding both overlap with yoga and meditation in one area: awareness. What Heather teaches is the practice of paying attention and Joanna teaches the same… but through yoga.

No matter what your experience is with yoga, birding, or nature journaling, this weekend at the beautiful Sleeping Lady will give you a heightened quality of awareness inside and out. Open to all levels and experiences.
