Join Bill and Rosey Wyland for 4 days and 3 nights of active fun, restful contemplation, and connecting to nature, all from the comfort of the beautiful FivePine Lodge in Sisters, Oregon. Bill and Rosey will lead 6 yoga classes (3 vinyasa flow and 3 gentle & restorative classes). This retreat is appropriate for adventurous beginners to yoga, as well as experienced yogis wishing to take their practice to a deeper place.
In between classes, participants can explore numerous outdoor winter activities (skiing, snowshoeing, snowboarding) or experience the delightful attractions of Sisters—including Shibui Spa, Three Creeks Brewing, and Sisters Movie House—or nearby Bend, OR.
With the personal touch of a bed and breakfast, the privacy of cozy cabins, and all the amenities of a destination resort, FivePine Lodge— one of the top rated hotels on TripAdvisor—is the ultimate getaway in Central Oregon.
Instructor — Bill Wyland
Bill Wyland is the co-owner and a managing partner of Align Integrative Wellness, LLC. Together, with his sister Savonn, they oversee the vision, development and growth of their studios: Bernal Yoga, Sellwood Yoga and Align Fitness.
After a career in the labor movement in Washington D.C. and California, Bill changed professions and helped his sister Savonn open Bernal Yoga in San Francisco’s Bernal Heights neighborhood in 2002. In 2009, they opened Sellwood Yoga, followed by Align Fitness in 2013, both in Portland’s Sellwood neighborhood.
As a studio owner and yoga teacher, Bill’s overall philosophy is rooted in the belief that the practice of yoga is an important piece in the overall approach to healthy living. One should use the skills and awareness yoga creates in all foundations of life, including health, relationships, work and personal evolution.
Bill is a longtime athlete, who began taking yoga classes after college as a way to continue playing sports (injury-free as possible) while getting older. After feeling the positive effects of increased flexibility, strength and awareness, he began to add more yoga classes into his weekly routine.
He got his yoga teaching certification at the Sacred Movement Center for Yoga and Healling in Venice, California, where he studied with Max Strom, Shiva Rea and Saul David Raye. He also has a Thai Yoga Therapy Massage certification from the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, California.
