The Soft Side of Power with Christine Guenette

Connect with your personal sense of power while surrounded by peace and the natural beauty in Sutton, Quebec.

Manipura is our third Chakra, and is located in the belly, the solar plexus.  It relates to our sense of personal worth, our significance, and is closely linked with our sense of self, the ego.

As with any source of power, it must be held respectfully and with intention.  Our ego holds the power to shape us, to define us, to motivate us.  It can also cause harm and pain for others, when left unattended to.

During this 3 day, 2 night retreat with Christine, Certified Yoga Teacher and Life Coach, connect with your power, understand it's magnitude, and learn how to use it wisely with purpose, intention, and kindness.
