About the Retreat Leaders:
Adrian McCavitt, E-RYT 200, YACEP
Adrian got into yoga after needing a real life change. He decided to take a chance on a yoga class after hearing about its positive effects on the mind and body. He has a strong background in rock climbing, so he took to the strength and balance aspects of yoga quickly. Finding a real love and challenge in what he likes to call the architecture of movement, as it primes and conditions us for all other types of movement, he knew instantly that this was going to be something life changing.
After benefiting so much from yoga in mind and body, and feeling first hand the transformational effects on his entire outlook and perspective on life, he felt very called to teach. Adrian received his 200 hour Ashtanga training along with his Rocket teacher certification from Asta Yoga in San Francisco, CA. With the benefit of retrospect, he feels that what we are all searching for is in fact searching for us too.
Lauren Nottingham, RYT-500, E-RYT 200, YACEP
Lauren started her journey into yoga in high school, when her aunt gave her a mat and a yoga video, thinking it would complement her background in dance and movement. She dabbled with a home practice through the years, but nothing ever really stuck. Eventually, while going through some big life changes, she was drawn to the practice while looking for something more meaningful in life.
As her practice intensified, Lauren felt a strong calling to share her love of yoga with others. She completed her 200 hour training under the guidance of Yogi J Miles, followed by her Rocket teacher training at Asta Yoga in San Francisco with Steve Pyka and Rene Henley.She completed her 300 hour certification at Asheville Yoga Center. Along with Rocket, Hatha, and Vinyasa, she is trained in Kundalini, Restorative, Meditation, and Trauma Informed Methods. She is currently in the process of completing the Level 1 Meridian Yoga Therapy certification with Science of Self / Rose Erin Vaughan.Lauren’s main goals for her students are for them to be able to practice without judgment or expectation, to tune in and reconnect with themselves and the present moment, and have fun (probably including a couple of laughs) while practicing. Off the mat, Lauren enjoys traveling and exploring with her husband, Ryan, and snuggling with her rescue pups, Howdy and Moo Moo Milkshake.
Beautifully furnished with unique antiques from India, Casa Om sits on 60 picturesque acres looking out at the Potomac in Martinsburg, West Virginia.
