Dunsmuir, CA (PRWEB) May 15, 2006
Divine Motion Yoga founders Tracee and Everett Newell launch Divine Adventures, a private retreat package that tailors yoga practice to the individual’s needs through personalized one on one instruction in a healthy vacation environment.
With over 16 million people practicing yoga today, most are lost in the shuffle of group classes. Traditionally, this is not how the practice of yoga was meant to be passed down. Yoga is a personal experience, and the needs of each individual vary enormously. In busy and stressful times there is a need for a personal home practice. “We both love teaching and attending group classes, and we consistently see the changes that yoga creates in people’s lives,” says Tracee Stanley-Newell, co-founder of Divine Adventures. “But as we experienced in our own lives, that once we had a practice that spoke to our own personal needs from a physical perspective and on a spiritual level, our lives transformed in a very magical way.”
Yoga studio owners and founders of Divine Adventures (http://www.divinemotionyoga.com ) Everett and Tracee Newell learn about each individual that comes on retreat through consultations that begin on the phone before arriving, and continue throughout the entire retreat. They focus on helping the individuals cultivate a new awareness of body, mind, and spirit through cultivating, a balanced and well-rounded daily yoga practice that participants take home with them. The practices are tailored to the needs of the individual’s personal goals and needs. “We are hoping to offer people an opportunity to look at their yoga practice at a deeper level,” says Everett. “To begin to incorporate meditation and breath-work (pranayama) under the guidance of skilled teachers in a one on one environment is very transformative.”
The retreats are held in the beautiful remote mountain town of Dunsmuir, CA, just 5 miles south of Mt. Shasta and 3.5 hours drive north of San Francisco. Everett Newell says, “The pristine natural beauty of this part of California alone is so breathtaking that it sets the tone to begin to unplug from the stress of daily life, so that we can begin to really look within. Here you find the serenity needed for contemplation, and the space opens for healing.”
Each personal or solo yoga retreat is typically 3 days and includes accommodations, 2 daily private yoga and meditation sessions, days hikes, mineral baths or hot springs, Native American sweat lodge, massage and energy balancing. But for those with limited time or budgets, retreats can be booked on a daily basis. Contact Divine Adventures directly for pricing as it will vary according to individual needs.

Everett and Tracee Newell are committed to helping others deepen their understanding of yoga at whatever level they may be at.They work to empower individuals to heal, grow, and establish healthy habits and lifestyle by incorporating yogic philosophies and practices into their daily lives.
