WomIN Motion is an annual outdoor movement retreat in Southern Indiana that was created to bring women of all ages, shapes, sizes, abilities, ethnicities, and orientations together to celebrate our feminine bodies through movement, camping, conversation, and community.
2020 Dates: June 26-28
All levels of AcroYoga will be offered throughout the weekend. AcroYoga is a blend of Yoga, partner exercises & acrobatics. It is a practice that builds awareness, strength and mobility in the body, while cultivating communication, mutual support, trust and connection between 2 or more people. AcroYoga is one of the foundational practices that will be offered during this event. Some of your instructors include Certified AcroYoga Teachers, Paula Bui of Chicago and Kara Schmidt of Paoli, IN.
Yoga will be offered multiple times throughout the weekend by different instructors. We will make sure there are a variety of styles and levels of yoga offered.
Alice Wootton of Paoli will be offering a Zumba session on Friday evening to kick the weekend off with some dancing!
Laci Samira of French Lick will be offering a belly dancing session during the weekend.
Leah Robling will be offering a time of Women's Sacred Dance.
Lazy Black Bear is surrounded by Hoosier National Forest and is right next to the Youngs Creek Horse Camp. There are many trails to explore within and around the property.
Functional Strength & Natural Movement
Pilates, Functional Movement, Corrective Exercise, and Natural Movement -- all of these practices give us an opportunity to understand our bodies better. From these practices, we learn where we may need to increase strength or mobility to bring more balance and integrity to our physical bodies. These practices help to build strength and confidence, while inviting novelty and playfulness into our daily movement practice.
Hand Movement Arts
Evie Sehr from Mitchell, IN will be offering a session of learning to crochet for anyone who wants to learn, practice or ask questions. These sorts of old arts invite dexterity, fine motor control, and more refined connection of our bodies to our brains. We can sit around in the evenings, drinking wine, telling stories, and making scarves.
