Re-Inspire! A Life Well Lived!

All-inclusive yoga & mediTation retreat

February 27 - march 1, 2020

It’s a NEW year! A NEW moment! It’s the ideal time to re-inspire a life well lived through this rare opportunity to unplug from daily routines and to plug in to the space where you are just yourSelf without any effort. The scriptures call this space Ānanada or bliss, I call this living in the EXTRAordinary. 

Why go on retreat? It is easy for us to become busy, distracted and experience haziness in the direction of our life – or even to disconnect from life in general. Retreats up-level us. They invite us to step into a space where we can reconnect and refocus on what is most important. In revitalizing our body/mind we remember what is most essential and what is most life affirming. This encourages us to re-enter our daily life on a higher level and to advance the direction of our lives. With our energy settled, clear and expansive we re-discover life’s magic, meaning and intention.

Immersed in bhāv, the divine mood or atmosphere of yoga, we will remember what is most meaningful and align ourselves with the possibility of bringing that which is most meaningful into this new year - ordinary life becomes EXTRAordinary! This is an opportunity to clear off your personal viewfinder through the practices of meditation, prāṇāyāma (breathing exercises to enhance vitality), nāda yoga and mantra (sacred sound and chanting), Āyurveda, invigorating flow yoga, natural body scrub and ocean cleanse, restoring and nurturing yin yoga, yoga nidra (yogic sleep) and organic farm fresh, mana filled meals. This retreat is suitable for all levels of yoga. You will leave seeing the amazing in every day moments, truly replenished and re-inspired!
