What does Riverbirch Yoga offer?
Riverbirch Yoga on Lake Wylie offers explorations in Wholistic Living through Personal Yoga, Creativity, and Spirituality.
Jan encourages you to schedule an appointment for YOU! ... If there's one thing I've included in my wholistic self care, it's therapeutic body and energywork. In addition to time I spend on the mat; the attention I give to what I eat; the seasonal, herbal, and Ayurvedic practices I follow; the practices in conscious awakening that I immerse myself in, I make time, barter services, and budget funds for professional massage and energetic clearing. Caroline is by far the most sensitive and intuitive practitioner I have worked with both personally and professionally and it is my pleasure to provide Riverbirch's special space for you to work with her! Together you will learn about the body you are living in and the best ways to care for yourself....." LEARN MORE
* Pay as you are able and called!*
The class never follows the same routine or flow and each session uniquely honors the needs of all participants. A session may feel like a nurturing deep massage or like a spirited work out. You may find increased energy as well as a pleasant sense of relaxation. If you come to gain physical exercise, to lower your blood pressure, to tone and strengthen your physique, or to develop improved flexibility, you may be delighted by some unexpected side-effects: enhanced mental clarity, stimulation of creative energies, freeing up of fears. Just one warning … Riverbirch Yoga can be addicting to the body, to the mind, to the heart!
In addition to weekly studies on the Yoga mat and meditation cushions, Riverbirch offers some monthly experiences ....

Day and Weekend Retreats - We offer at least 2 retreats each year, Fall and Spring. Some involve a full weekend, some half and full days. Retreats at Riverbirch offer busy folks a way to retreat without leaving town and to those who seek to deepen their Yoga practice, a day or two of personally-immersed time. Retreat days slide gently from time on the mat into silent meals and walks, from quiet personal exploration activities into relaxing and inspiring small group spiritual and creative adventures. Expect a nap sometime during the day as you develop your practice of Yoga Nidra. Expect nourishingly delicious fresh and whole vegetarian meals and snacks. Expect nurturing words and images. Expect to return home renewed and with some tools for sustained mindfulness and day-to-day self-caring.
Personalized Day Retreats for YOU alone!
In many ways, the sky’s the limit to the day of renewal you can create especially for you!
Riverbirch offers two annual community celebrations: Summer Body and SOULstice and SOULSTICE! Celebration of Gifts at the Winter Solstice are held sometime around each of the two seasonal Solstices. Various activities include fire circle and burning to release the past and dive headlong into the present and future ... as well as storytelling, drumming, chanting, foods, meditation, candles, creative-expressive activities, readings, music.
