Endless Summer Yoga Retreat
At Granlibakken Tahoe
September 4-7, 2015
The summer’s energy is winding down and already we are preparing for fall, but time still remains for you to give your Self the rest, relaxation and adventure that you deserve and you don’t have to travel far to receive it! This year indulge in a weekend retreat at Granlibakken’s Endless Summer Yoga Retreat and offer your body, mind and spirit blessings of nature, yoga, health and music.
Even the most successful and happiest of lives require moments of retreat and self-care in order for us to see clearly and evolve gracefully. With this in mind, we have designed a retreat to reinvigorate your yoga practice and your life with time spent in nature, live music vinyasas, ayurvedic counseling and delicious, nourishing meals.
Perhaps you have been feeling less creative in your day to day life, or bored with things that have previously motivated and intrigued you. Run free in the mountains and atop the lake and breathe fresh, vital prana and inspiration into your body and soul. Return home refreshed, lighter and more joyful.
- Two nights’ accommodations at Granlibakken Tahoe, nestled deep into private forested acres.
- 3 daily restorative meals.
- Yoga classes every day, including DJ Yoga and Sound Healing Yoga, encouraging us to drop in fully to the moment and experience our bodies soulfully.
- A nature hike to one of Lake Tahoe’s most adored trails and beach spots.
- Ayurvedic counseling with a specialist to determine your dosha and the ways you can improve your relationships with others, self and community by honoring it.
- A final Stand Up Paddleboard tour as the sun ascends the clear blue skies OR a spa treatment (spa treatment for an additional fee)

Ashley Aarti has practiced yoga for eleven years both abroad and in her native United States. In 2009 she traveled to Goa, India, to deepen her spiritual study and receive her 200-hour Teacher Training, and she has been teaching ever since in Massachusetts, California and Argentina. Ashley is Yoga Alliance Certified, actively studies all eight branches of yoga and is also Reiki I-certified.
Ashley currently lives in Truckee, CA, and spends her work and play time deep within the wild forests of Lake Tahoe and California. Her dharma, or life's duty is to share yoga and the awesome natural world with more and more people in order to help create a deepened awareness of our interconnection with Mother Earth and her well-being.
While guiding yoga Ashley brings her student to their physical edge and encourages them to draw their senses within to experience the more subtle layers of yoga. Concentrating on a true yolking of breath, movement and spirit, Ashley's classes are meditative, explorative and playful.
