This retreat includes yoga classes and workshops. Yoga practice will be held overlooking the bay and village, accompanied by the rising or setting sun. Generally, you will be practicing sunrise and sunset yoga, and various profound teachings, meditations, processes and blessings. There will be plenty of activities scheduled, yet keeping things as flexible and open as possible to allow people to create their own experience, with free time for other activities. Everything is optional, but you are encouraged to attend as many yoga and oneness classes as you can to help create a sacred energy for the group.

Being and slowing down

Holman Health's retreat theme this year is slowing down, being still, being who you are, stepping outside the rat race and remembering what is important: breath, community, consciousness. This will be applied to slow food eating, slow yoga, and slow days on the beach.

Typical day

You will start your day with sunrise yoga (sometimes with an optional meditation beforehand), then breakfast. Then, there will either be an activity (playshop, hike, island or beach visit), or just leisure time to stroll town or visit the beach for swimming, sunning, eating lunch, and others. Next, a second yoga class before sunset will be held. Afterwards, dinner, usually at the hotel, but a couple times you will go out to sample some of the excellent local restaurants. Holman Health will also offer a couple playshops (open to suggestions, possibly meditation, breath, healing, and etc.)

    "I loved doing yoga in a fantastically beautiful, serene, and spectacular location. I especially enjoyed the lightness, frivolity, and humor of Roy and Chris. You’ve both mastered the art of not taking yourselves too seriously."
