Seasonal Yoga Retreat with Julie Cielo
August 18-23, 2013
As the seasons change, so do we. Early cultures instinctively felt the natural rhythms and couldn't perceive a separation between self & nature. In our modern world, we have disconnected from these natural cycles of "being" and fallen out of tune with our organic pulse. Indian Summer is a special time of year at the end of summer and before Autumn. It is a period of preparation and readiness for the year's work. Join Yoga Therapist, Holistic Lifestyle Coach, and creator of the Lifestyle Movement called "Seasonal Yin Yang Flow", Julie Cielo on this 5 day Seasonal Yoga Retreat where we will take a closer look into how we reflect nature and how to better align with the natural cycles of change to stay healthy through this transitional period through diet, movement, and lifestyle.

Not only was she a hit in the kitchen with our culinary team but our guests loved learning from her during her (delicious!) cooking demonstrations. Here's some of the photos we captured of her visit cooking with Miraval's Executive Chef Justin Macy.
