Tying & Yoga Weekend Retreat
$200 (all inclusive)
Southern Brookies will be
hosting a fly tying and yoga retreat Saturday, April 1 –2. No prior experience is necessary. The class will begin on Saturday morning with hands on instruction
in fly tying. You will learn about the basic tools, the materials and techniques for creating realistic imitations that
are proven to catch trout. During the session you will tie 3 different patterns that are commonly used on the
Caney Fork River. All equipment and materials are provided for your use.
We will break for a light and healthy lunch before moving
into our afternoon session “Gentle Yoga.” This session is appropriate for all levels of experience (even
none), all ages and body types.
The session will begin with an introductory discussion on the practice of yoga and how it can
positively impact your life. We will move into a two hour, gentle session of beginning stretches and poses. Frequent
breaks to answer questions and to review and demonstrate correct positioning will be incorporated.
The day’s activities
will be followed by a relaxing evening around the camp fire and a delicious dinner. The weekend includes an overnight
stay in trout themed, vintage, campers, complete with fresh linens.
Sunday morning will begin with hot coffee as we leisurely start the day. New yoga skills will be put into action as we spend an hour
moving through the morning.
A light breakfast will be provided following this session. Guests are welcome to stay through
the afternoon and enjoy the river, fishing, testing out new flies or simply relaxing.
