Yoga Retreats

I have been leading international retreats to Asia, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Europe since 2011. On retreat, you’ll have the opportunity to deepen your yoga practice, as we workshop specific poses and have daily classes. There are also pre-arranged trips and tours, so that you can participate in culturally responsible tourism. Highlights include: seeing leatherback baby turtles hatching in Costa Rica, learning Buddhist insights from a chief abbot in Bhutan, climbing Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu in Peru, swimming at Blue Hole Waterfall in Jamaica, and sending lanterns in the sky for Loi Kratong in Thailand. I’m grateful that the folks who come on retreat often attend future retreats, so it fosters a wonderful sense of continual community. I feel like the participants are a microcosm of true diversity: all different ages, genders, ethnicities, religions, body types, levels of yoga experience… but what is common is shared values of inner healing and growth, building strong relationships, and good ol’ laughter.
