Why Join a Yoga Retreat?
As workshops expand on the benefits of classes, Retreats expand the benefits of twice daily sessions over a week or longer. One also gains the advantage of being removed from the normal everyday concerns and distractions by placing yourself in a totally new and exotic environment, where you can allow your parameters to expand. Yoga Retreats are meant to stimulate mental and intellectual awareness as well as to promote physical wellbeing. Retreats are cleansing, transforming, healing and powerful in ways beyond our imagination.

Join us for an exciting trip to Troncones, a tranquil and beautiful beach, with warm clear waters of the Pacific Ocean.

Two separate yoga classes will be offered each day for beginning and intermediate students and will include asana, pranayama and meditation. Zoreh and Elise have extensive experience working with back issues and scoliosis.

There will be ample opportunities for rest and quiet time, or to partake in many activities such as swimming, bird watching, eco-tours with special hikes to caves, a swimming hole and a kayaking adventure on a nearby lagoon.
