About The Event


Rise with the Sun is an invitation to enter and hold space for the magic of the Vernal Equinox.  This seasonal energy represents the earth waking from its wintery slumber, a birthing into spring, and a call to embrace the fire element.   In this retreat you are encouraged to spend time on the land, experiencing connection to self, to nature, and to others as we embrace intentional waking of the fire in our bellies and our spirits. If the thought of embracing your inner light and owning the power of your story echos in your heart, you are invited to connect with other individuals during this sacred and energetic celebration.  The connection to self, to others, and to the land will leave you feeling refreshed and grounded as you bloom where you are planted.   

Features of this retreat include: 

• Daily yoga practice  

• Meditation ceremony with fire at each of the sacred sites on Hope Springs land  

• Creative Process experiences with art materials to stir self-reflection and creativity

• Opportunities for independent explorations on the land 

About the Facilitator

April McMillan, ERYT500, TSY, MSW, LSW, YACEP, Level 2 Reiki practitioner

April is the founder and lead instructor of Anahata Mosaic. She took her first formal yoga training in 2016 and immediately fell in love with the practice. Yoga continues to transform the lens in which she views life. Since that time, April aspires to use yoga in promoting mental and physical wellness for several communities.

April  loves helping individuals to be the-best version-of-yourself while  onoring human connection and community. Through deep love, tragic loss and a call to move forward, Anahata Mosaic was born to honor both  physical and mental wellness while cultivating human connection. It is  in this life journey that the pieces of April’s heart space continue to take shape, while supporting others on their own personal wellness journey.

April has a BS in Human Ecology and MS in Social Work from The Ohio State University.   Since 2005, she has been licensed in social work with experience in  child welfare, hospice, gerontology, and mental health. April has completed additional training in trauma and mindfulness to benefit her yoga teaching and practice.

April also successfully led the Recharge & Renew Yoga Retreat at Hope Springs Institute earlier this year!
