Why Inscape Journeys?
Inscape means, “the essence or inner nature of a person, place, or thing”. It is kind of like the landscape of your soul’s essence. How beautiful is that?
Our yoga holidays take you on a journey of discovery and connecting with the truest, purest essence of self. We are honored to be a part of this journey.
Miracle Manor boutique hotel is a wellness hotel and spa designed to help you to relax, nourish your mind, body and soul and take the time to allow yourself to THRIVE. This intimate, 8-room hotel will serve as our home for three days as you breathe deeply, rest peacefully, and move mindfully. Private and shared accommodation are available.
About the yoga
Jennison has planned each aspect of your holiday with thoughtfulness, love, intention and passion. With over 20 years of yoga experience and more than 9 years sharing yoga with others, Jennison has a passion for connecting others more closely with themselves and building community through unique yoga experiences.
Her passion for yoga, paired with her enthusiasm for travel, make Jennison’s “Inscape Journeys” unforgettable and truly special experiences. The yoga itself is a combination of energizing vinyasa and relaxing yin practices designed for all levels of practitioners. Jennison loves to add in some fun with partner yoga sessions and adds depth through intention-setting and mindfulness workshops as well as daily meditation.
These yoga holidays are all about balance. We love to have fun, share a bottle (or two) of wine at dinner and dive deep into our connections with one another. Bring a friend and enjoy a holiday together or come alone and prepare to make some lifelong, meaningful friendships. Warning: these retreats are truly addicting!
See you on the mat. Cheers and namaste, friends!
What will you learn?
Peace, Passion, Purpose
Your yoga holiday is more than traveling to gorgeous locations with likeminded people from around the world. You will enjoy sunset yoga sessions with dreamy views and taste the exotic flavors of the local cuisine, but you will also experience moments of personal transformation as you learn, grow and evolve during your retreat.
The experiences and practices of Retreat Yourself Palm Desert have been designed with a focus on exploring your personal core values and bringing you in alignment with your highest vibrational state. You will be taken on a journey of exploration of your values through writing and meditation. You will reflect on how you spend your day, your time and your choices and how to align these with your values. This personal journey will include the following components:
- Understanding the science behind using the breath to reduce anxiety and stress.
- Using meditation to quiet the mind and identify your core values.
- Identifying your core values and aligning these values with your daily choices to promote more peace in your day.
- Rediscovering your passions and zest for life.
- Utilizing your passions as a way to live more mindfully, with purpose, and share your most meaningful gifts with the world.
- Using the movement rituals of yoga to create ease and presence in the moment by cultivating space for compassion, gratitude and overall health.
- Owning your greatness, your worth, and your deservedness for goodness and blessings.
