FIND YOUR STRIDE: YOGA & RUNNING RETREAT IN POINT REYES, CALIFORNIA

OCT 25-26, 2014

There’s something about running on open trails that can awaken something in us we haven’t felt since we were young. It is similar to the feeling we get when we roll out our yoga mats, breath a little, sweat a little and get quiet. There is sense of freedom and ease we find when we are able to shut up and move our bodies the way they are meant to move.  Spend an epic weekend pounding dirt under your feet and reaching for your toes on your sticky mat. We will reconnect with what is real around us and within in us. We’ll dig deep, run far and move gracefully.  

Join us for a weekend of yoga and trail running in beautiful Point Reyes. Brothers Jason and Dylan Bowman will lead you from your yoga mat to the trails of Point Reyes, encouraging you to live on the edge of your comfort zone. We’ll take adventures both on and off the mat, enjoy fresh local food and create a community bonded together by a desire to dream big and feel alive.

POINT REYES NATIONAL SEASHORE

A 45-minute drive north of San Francisco, Point Reyes National Seashore boasts miles of sandy beaches, rocky coast, rolling hillsides and forested trails. We think Point Reyes is the perfect place to escape to for a weekend of adventure. What better way to explore Northern California than trail runs to the beach and yoga overlooking the serene coast?

POINT REYES HOSTEL

Point Reyes Hostel is a peaceful retreat nestled in the coastal prairie of Point Reyes National Seashore. Surrounded by winding trails, marshes, forests and an abundance of wildlife, Point Reyes Hostel is the perfect weekend escape from the chaos of city life. It is a hostel so accommodations are shared dormitory style - just think of it as a summer camp for grown-ups! All bedding is provided, and towels can be rented for $1.

Jason Bowman

JASON BOWMAN

Jason Bowman is a writer and yoga teacher in San Francisco.  His practice and teaching have been greatly influenced by Ashtanga Yoga as he’s learned it from Richard Freeman and Maty Ezraty and Vipassana Meditation as he’s learned it from SN Goenka.  He has completed several trainings and silent retreats as well as years of practice with all three teachers.  The impression they've left can be felt in his strong ability to teach the physical practice alongside the philosophical with insight and character.

Jason has excelled in teaching teachers and providing continuing education to various yoga communities. He has led several Yoga Alliance Certified teacher trainings as well as regular immersions, workshops, retreats and guest lecture series both at home and around the country.  He is well known for his ability to be thorough while maintaining a light-hearted sense of humor.  His classes encourage a personal examination of the space between theory and direct experience and his love for the practice shines through in his ability to teach with a concrete yet creative voice.  Jason has a keen eye for detail and his classes are consistently fun and challenging while always in tune with the underlying internal inquiry that makes the practice so beautiful.

Dylan Bowman

DYLAN BOWMAN

Dylan is a professional runner and endurance enthusiast residing in Mill Valley, CA.  A lifelong athlete, Dylan excelled playing lacrosse through high school and college.  When his lacrosse career ended, Dylan felt compelled to continue pursuing athletic goals outside of the team sports environment he'd always known.  An initial curiosity in long distance trail running quickly turned into a passion and eventually a lifestyle.  

With no formal background as a runner, Dylan has quickly become very successful on the North American ultramarathon circuit - earning many wins and podium finishes along the way.  Dylan currently finds his inspiration on the world class trail systems of Marin County where he trains daily.
