Tired of the noise in the city and want some peace and quiet out in nature? Escape with us to the gorgeous getaway that is Moganshan! We will be staying in a village surrounded by tea plantations, bamboo forests, and water streams running down mountainsides while we practice yoga, meditation, and much more!
** We will observe noble silence during many activities, including time spent in the van, tea and snack times, during yoga practice (unless otherwise indicated), and during other activities.
This is a great chance to practice mindfulness and to enjoy a level of peacefulness that we often don’t get to experience.
