Join us for our first ever SOCK and STRETCH Retreat.
We will meet and stay at the beautiful  WON DHARMA CENTER

Knit the Countrywool sock style of your choice,
or choose to start the three styles (shown above) we are presenting to offer 9 different sock techniques.

Also on the itinerary, is an (optional) opening session of knitting for charity
as we give back to the local community by knitting wool TESSELLATED FISH
to be assembled into an afghan for the homeless.

Warm Heart
Knitting is the new yoga. But after knitting all evening, do your hands hurt? Does your neck cramp?
Do your shoulders creak? How about your back?!?
After knitting, you might benefit from some movement. Have you wanted to to try yoga, but felt awkward and unsure?
This is the PERFECT place to sample this timeless s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g practice.
At The Won Dharma Center, we will have opportunities to unwind and relax AFTER we relax with our knitting.

New to yoga? Not a problem! We have teachers who specialize in helping beginners learn the ropes.
Think you can't get on the floor (or get up afterward?) Is your balance shaky?  We have JUST THE THING...chair yoga.
You will do all the stretches while sitting or holding onto a chair.
Yoga and/or meditation instruction is included in your registration fee.
This is your chance to try these proven methods of relaxation in a supportive environment at no additional cost!
