Rest Day: The 3rd Annual Yoga Kickback Retreat @ Eaton Wellness

An immersive wellness retreat for BIPOC to slow down and experience deep rest and relaxation in body, mind, and spirit

Do you constantly feel overwhelmed, fatigued, or burned out from the life that you worked so hard to create? Press pause on the demands of your daily grind and give yourself permission to rest.

Join the calm/cool collective as we restore ourselves and each other at the Yoga Kickback, our annual wellness retreat that invites BIPOC* to connect, chill, and celebrate community in the name of collective healing and well-being.

Supported by wellness practitioners of color, this year’s theme of Rest Day creates space for you to explore the seven types of rest (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, sensory, social, and creative) through a variety of practices that invite deep relaxation, reconnection, and ease.

Nurtured by the calming vibe of Eaton Wellness, your Rest Day will leave you feeling replenished with renewed clarity on how to integrate more rest into your daily life. No yoga or meditation experience is required, all levels are welcome.
