Quiet Your Mind on Washington Island

Hotel Washington Yoga Studio.

“Moving into Stillness” is the theme for an all-levels yoga workshop at the Hotel Washington’s Studio, Sept. 11 – 13. Leading the event are Rocky Delaplaine and Suzanne Stevens, who have worked together for more than 20 years in the Women’s Collaborative Leadership Community.

“In our all-too-busy lives, many of us are looking for ways to slow down and be more peaceful inside. Yoga gives us the means. Its very purpose is to quiet the mind. In this workshop we’ll stretch muscles that are tight, strengthen muscles that are weak, learn to take a slow, deep, steady breath, and relax deeply,” Stevens said.

In addition to yoga, workshop participants will pay attention to their dreams, learn about the cycles of the moon, write for the joy of discovery, and immerse themselves in the elemental life of Washington Island. “This workshop is designed for all experiences and abilities, and each student will leave with an individually tailored yoga sequence to practice at home,” Delaplaine added.

The workshop begins at 3 pm on Sept. 11, and concludes at 2 pm on Sept. 13. The registration fee is $390, and includes tuition and all meals. Lodging at the Hotel Washington is sold out, but participants may visit for alternate lodging recommendations.
