Mini Retreat: Yoga & Acupuncture

  • Black Mountain Yoga 116 Montreat Road Black Mountain, NC, 28711 United States (map)

Our fast and overly stimulated lifestyles don’t give us the opportunity to rest fully, and yet, it is only when we are at rest that the innate healing and repair mechanisms in the body can go to work most fully.  We need a way for the fight-or-flight response to calm down, allowing the healing and repair processes to begin. This retreat is designed to do just that!


The Mini Retreat creates an experience that opens the physical body and energy channels, while relaxing the mind and heart for a synergistic effect. Chosen acupuncture points restore balance with seasonal changes.

Experience a peaceful, contemplative and comfortable environment for movement, healing, and connecting with yourself. 

A gentle yoga class releases stored tension and brings balance to your body, followed by a simple but very effective Acupuncture treatment to support and nourish your Qi or Life Force.

The yoga provides a state for an Acupuncture treatment that is more relaxed and receptive, amplifying its effects.

The group Acupuncture benefits are enhanced by the Qi (energy) healing Anisha emits to the room. This allows the bodies’ own Life Force to re-establish harmony, bringing each participant balance (much like group meditation).

The retreat closes with Pranayama (yogic breathing techniques) to help integrate the treatment and solidify the overall balance of the nervous system and body functions.

Leave feeling revitalized, calm, and relaxed!

Cost: $55

Note: class size is limited to 20 students. The acupuncture will include 4-5 points per person and is appropriate for any student comfortable lying on his/her back.
