EDIE SHIPLER
JUNE 8-13, 2024

Anchor 1

Hello retreaters, connection seekers, yogis, and friends, 

 

I am so excited to team back up with Ritual Retreats to bring you our 2024 Brac, Croatia Retreat. This magical island, nestled in the heart of the Adriatic, is absolutely breathtaking. With a grounding limestone foundation, surrounded by mountains, crystal clear water, and fresh coastal air, Brac truly feels like paradise. There is so much beautiful nature to enjoy, from the olive groves to the sea. 

 

The intention for our 2024 retreat will be to soak up all that nature has to offer. Reconnecting back to the earth, finding freedom in the air, and flowing with the fluidity of the beautiful water that surrounds this island. In addition to our daily yoga practice, please join us for adventures around Brac and the surrounding islands, a hike to a family-owned olive oil grove, take unlimited dips in the sea, and enjoy connecting with the people around you. 

 

Yoga retreats are a sublime way to invest in yourself. An opportunity to reconnect to what grounds you down. An invitation to find more freedom. I hope you will join us for this adventure, a true exploration into the self, guided by nature, wrapped in a warm embrace. 

 

See you on Brac, 

Edie

ABOUT EDIE

ZxEQ6Hbu.jpeg

Edie began deepening her yoga practice while studying anthropology at the University of Colorado at Boulder. During her time as a student, she found that an hour spent on her mat to untangle her thoughts was transformative and created space for balance between studies and self care. Motivated and inspired by the practice of yoga, she became an instructor in 2014 through Corepower Yoga obtaining her 200 Hour certificate. She continued to study and deepen her practice in Boulder completing trainings in yin yoga, yoga sculpt and Sean Corne’s Off the Mat, Into the World training.

She has spent a majority of her teaching career in New York City and Brooklyn focusing on vinyasa flow and restorative yoga. Since moving to NYC, Edie began teaching at Corepower Yoga and Y7 Studio, teaching classes, offering workshops, and facilitating teacher trainings. She has recently completed Exhale2Inhale’s Trauma Informed yoga teacher training and her 300 Hour certificate from Jason Crandell. She is now teaching at New Love City in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Edie offers a range of classes from dynamic and challenging flows that focus on strength and alignment to the softer side of yin yoga where you will experience turning your gaze inwards to gain clarity and insight to the subtle body. Her classes are always open level. All are welcome.
