“Sit and Knit with Me”

Intrigued by a tricky pattern? Ready to try a new stitch technique? Want to try steeking but the thought of taking scissors to your knitting gives you hives? You’re invited to bring along a project that poses a knotty problem or a learning challenge, and our skilled experts and teachers will be there to help you. We will ask you a couple of weeks in advance if you know what you want to learn, but if you decide while you’re there, that’s great, too! We’ll be ready!

Activities include

  • Daily yoga instruction with the talented Atlanta-based Iyengar yoga teacher Kquvien Deweese
  • Daily personal knitting instruction with renowned knitting instructor and designer Nell Ziroli and Knitty techniques columnist Theresa Vinson Stenersen
  • Field trip to a local fiber farm for fuzzy animal snuggling, yarn/fiber shopping, and more!
  • Hiking trails
  • Free time to explore on your own, take naps, or knit and do more yoga!
  • Whiskey tastings after dinner

Beginners and advanced practitioners at both yoga and knitting are welcome and encouraged! Beginners receive special attention. The schedule is designed so that you may be as involved in the activities as much or as little as you wish.

Location

Near Atlanta, but a world apart from the noise and sprawl. Here you can rock on the porch and take in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Sip herbal tea to the soft tinkle of tuned chimes. Wander wooded trails.  Circle our labyrinth. Soak in the outdoors, literally, in a Jacuzzi at the forest’s edge. Unplug in rooms with neither telephones nor televisions. Indulge in a healing massage or an aromatic body wrap. Or both. See how a yoga class helps rebalance mind, body and spirit. Nourish yourself at our on-site restaurant with fresh, locally sourced fare. Enjoy an inviting opportunity to simply be.

Instructors

Kquvien DeWeese has been practicing yoga for 18 years and taken three month-long trips to study in India at the Iyengar Center. She began teaching in 2002 and is now an Intermediate Junior III Certified Instructor, who also mentors aspiring teachers. Having come from a very physical background including dance, martial arts, and weightlifting, she offers a unique teaching style that can motivate even the most-accomplished couch potato among us. She challenges her students, leaving them with a sense of accomplishment, confidence, and inner peace. Working to accommodate each individual’s specific needs and physical challenges, she encourages her students to work to their potential. With disarming candor and compassion, she has helped people in all stages of life–children, adults, senior citizens, pregnant women, athletes, former athletes and self-proclaimed stiffs–to experience the physical and mental benefits of Iyengar yoga.

Nell Ziroli has been wrapping yarn around needles since she was 8. She is self-taught but has been inspired by luminaries and students alike.  She is a perpetual knitter, published designer, and enthusiastic teacher. Currently, Nell works with Mason Dixon Knitting; teaches at her darling local yarn shop, BaaBaa Sheep in Norfolk, Virginia; and travels for teaching. She is a more frequent Instagrammerthan Blogger.

Theresa Vinson Stenersen is a knitting designer and longtime columnist for the online magazine  Knitty  (“Techniques with Theresa”). She is well known for the illuminating lucidity of her instruction on methods and techniques often thought to be “advanced” and “challenging.” Theresa learned to knit first from her aunts with whom she grew up in the Southern Appalachians and later while living in Norway for many years. She also learned much about creating fiber dyes from natural sources such as mushrooms. Theresa now lives in Western North Carolina on a farm with her family, including several humans, alpacas, sheep, chickens, cats, and a marvelous dog named Audrey.

Allison Adams, retreat organizer, has been knitting for ten years and has helped many beginning knitters get started on their first projects. She has also studied stranded colorwork design and Fair Isle knitting techniques in Shetland and has taught beginning stranded colorwork. An experienced music teacher, she excels at one-on-one beginner level instruction. She focuses on making the learning project rewarding and encouraging, with clear, simple, step-by-step instruction that is geared toward what the knitter wishes to accomplish.

Aug 11-13: Island Yoga at Hilton Head!

Many of you recall Kquvien from her workshops in Savannah, at the Yoga Co-Op and Ganesha’s Place.  She’s the same wonderful Kquvien – knowledgeable, joyful, and intense all at once.  She’s now achieved  Intermediate Jr 3 level in the Iyengar certification system, and her teaching has become even more intelligent and inspiring.  Kquvien brings great intensity and awareness into basic poses, and leads you to explore more complex poses with confidence.  Her classes are disciplined, challenging and creative – infused with lessons from the Yoga Sutras.

I hope you can join us August 11-13!  Registration available soon at www.hhislandyoga.com.
