Away Inward Retreats

A Day Away...
with Ryan Patterson & Nianna Bray

Namaste Friends,

Join Ryan and Nianna for an amazing 'Day Away', a chance to escape reality for the day. We are planning a whole day of rejuvenating exercise, deep reflection and nutrient dense food. We will begin the day with hot chai and a powerful yoga class. Then we have a superfood shake for breakfast, hike several miles, eat a raw, nutrient dense lunch, and finish with a stretch. Our food will be organic and raw, with examples of how you can integrate powerful foods into your diet. Not to mention... dessert!

Date: Mar 14th
Time: 6:30am - 1:30pm
Where: Malibu
Cost: $75 (with proceeds to benefit "Las Casitas del Arco Iris" an orphanage in Peru)

Take some time to yourself and reset the system. A Day Away is designed to reignite the fire within. Through a strong asana practice and a gorgeous hike, we can tune back in to our inner nature. Let the routine go! Let the week go! And let yourself radiate your true being. 2012 is a year of Truth and Transparency; both internally and externally.

This is a special retreat for us. As you may know, we have recently moved to NYC and this is our first time back and working in LA. It is with great gratitude that we bring our passion for yoga and wellness to you. AND, we have decided to use the proceeds of this Day Away to help support an orphanage in Peru that is near and dear to us. Las Casitas del Arco Iris has 16 orphans, feeds and educates over 100 elementary aged children and has 5 post high school programs for under priviledged kids in Urubamaba, Peru. A magical place. THANK YOU for your support!!

Much light and joy,
Ryan & Nianna
