Neuroscience, Yoga, and Mindfulness Five-Day Retreat: Powerful Tools for Healing

with M. Mala Cunningham, Ph.D., C-IAYT

July 20 - 24, 2018

This 5-day retreat will focus on strategies for healing the body and mind through Yoga and mindfulness techniques. Dr. Mala will introduce you to powerful concepts and practices that she uses with her clients in her private practice. You’ll have the luxury of time and space to work with these amazing practices under Dr. Mala’s guidance and support.

In this mindfulness retreat, you’ll explore:

  • Scientific ways in which you can rewire the brain, release old patterns and introduce new, healing energy
  • Powerful hands-on healing methods that are designed to help with emotional balance through their positive impact on anxiety, depression, addictions, anger, stress, and other emotional and mental issues
  • Established tools for helping and assisting with physical healing issues

These ideas and tools are on the cutting edge of neuroscience and therapy. Come learn about this fascinating new field and discover what neuroscience, Yoga, and mindfulness have to offer you.

I was looking for a Yoga retreat that provided a good environment to learn, meditate, and relax. I found what I came for. Thank you. 

I was looking for the next steps in my journey of managing anxiety and being more mindful. It was exactly what I was looking for—almost like a group therapy continuation of my own personal cognitive behavioral therapy journey.

It was helpful to have so much spiritual practice with the neuroscience. It felt very balanced.

I was looking to become more mindful in my day-to-day life. This program gave me tools to use to accomplish this.
