Barbara also conducts retreats at her off-the-grid forest cabin
outside of Santa Fe, specifically designing for individuals an experience intended to complement each one's own particular moment on his or her own path, and inclusive of yoga, meditation and guided adventures along the mountain trails.
She has been leading retreats for the past seven years each winter while living on the beach in her "temple-on-wheels" in various coastal locales throughout Mexico. Her own practice, as well as her teaching, is reflective of all eight limbs of yoga and the teachings of the dharma as they relate to our present moment experience. Her style is gentle yet empowering, with a focus on encouraging students to uncover their own inner teacher.
