Mexico Yoga Retreat 2019

This is a true getaway into the sanctuary that defines retreat! Come for the yoga and discover why people return for the amazing friendships. This retreat will particularly focus on how to explore the Subtle Body through breath and other practices that build sensitivity to how we channel energy and direct energy for our highest good.

The body is a sanctuary, a microcosm of The Universe

The best teachers are the poses that you find challenging within your physical body. What does Urdhva Dhanurasana have to share for those who would rather not bend over backwards?

1. Honor your boundaries.

2. Strengthen your connection to the support of the Universe represented by your back body.

3. Patiently learn how to be visibly vulnerable as your allow your front body to open and lengthen.

4. When you feel stuck, pushing smarter not harder is the key.
