Moving into the New Year with INTENTION: A Full Day Retreat at Elohee, January 11, 2018
Join Sheila McVay at the beautiful Elohee Retreat Center in Sautee Nacooche, GA (just an hour north of the studio) for this single day retreat setting intention for the coming year and moving into practices to help you create the life you imagine.
We’ve all heard of New Years’ Resolutions, and we’ve probably even set a few ourselves, only to have them dissolve within a month or two. Setting INTENTION is a different process. One of the oldest writings on Yoga, the Upanishads says, “You are what your deepest desire is. As your desire is, so is your intention. As your intention is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny.” An intention is a directed form of consciousness that contains the seed of what you wish to create. Like seeds, intentions need to be planted in the depths of consciousness, fertilized with deep awareness and cultivated with daily practice to come to fruition. Join Sheila McVay, yoga teacher and owner of Johns Creek Yoga, for a full day of discerning your deepest intention and harnessing its power to create a richer, more fulfilling life and a more direct relationship to your truest Self.
Arrive at Elohee at 9 am / Depart transformed at 6 pm. Or stay the night for additional cost.

Venue and Local Area
From the Elohee Website:
“The ecosystems of the Blue Ridge Mountains are exceptionally diverse. They range from moist, deep-soiled forested valleys to exposed ridges, mountain tops and balds. At Elohee we have planned our facilities to highlight these different niches and dynamic energies, so that we may more easily join the plants and animals and elements in discovering our own personal edge – where our growth is new and tender, where transformation is just emerging.
We believe this conscious partnership with the land and nature aids in transformation by enlivening our connection to the force of evolution. It provides the opportunity to explore healing on whatever level that you find as personally meaningful, be that physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.
It is in this spirit that we translate El’-oh-hee as “sacred earth place.” In Cherokee, ElohÏ combines the roots ela or elo, meaning earth, and hÏ, place. From the ancient Hebrew, we have Elohim, invoking the sacred.”
This beautiful place of retreat and renewal is the perfect place to dive more deeply into your yoga practice and connect with Spirit. This retreat will invite you to gain inspiration from the breathtaking outer landscape to traverse your own vibrant and dynamic inner landscape. Connect with Nature outside to Nurture Yourself and return to your daily life feeling renewed!
