Aaron started practicing Bikram yoga in 2010. He was drawn to this type of yoga for the fitness aspect and to prepare for his first marathon. Aaron was able to finish the marathon under his goal of four hours by crossing the line with two seconds to spare. He believes that the mental and physical aspects of yoga helped and propelled him to reach that goal. His view point is that there is always something to learn through observations and conversations about the asanas. He teaches every class with the theme “maximize therapy, minimize injury”.
During the retreat, you will be served three delicious healthy meals per day. The menu at Xinalani is specially designed for yogis. The meals are healthy Mexican gourmet style and include fresh fish, seafood, and on occasion chicken, as part of an balanced diet, perfect to support the needs of an active adult.
