Alia Mai is a yoga teacher with a master's degree in social work and mental health, as well as a nutrition certification. She has been practicing and studying yoga for 12 years, in pursuit of ways to live healthier, happier, and more fulfilling lives. Her studies took her on a journey to her mother-land, India, where she lived and studied with her yoga and meditation teacher in 2009. Alia is passionate about yoga and meditation to gain both mental and physical strength and to overcome stress and anxiety.
Jennifer started practicing yoga to help strengthen, improve flexibility, and prolong her career as a professional ballet dancer. Her exploration of the more internal, traditional, and holistic practice of yoga took her to India, where she received her 200-hour RYT in Radiant Body yoga with Kia Miller and her 300-hour RYT in Sattva yoga with Anand Mehotra. These trainings combine elements of Kundalini, Kriya, meditation, pranayama, and mantra.
Felicia is a Swedish yoga teacher, who grew up internationally, studied in the States and has now settled in London to pursue her career as an aspiring psychologist. She was first introduced to yoga as a physical activity to complement her skills in dance. Her priorities shifted from dance to yoga as she connected more with the spiritual and mental benefits it has to offer. A decade and two teacher trainings later, most recently at Sangye Yoga (formerly Jivamukti London), the mantra she swears by is “the way we practice is the way we live.”
What an absolutely amazing experience for a first week long yoga retreat! The setting was serenely beautiful, the yoga instructors were professional and outstanding in their ability to guide us through our daily yoga classes, the food was superb and of course Tulum is the best backdrop for this experience. I felt completely at peace during this retreat and the yoga was the number one reason why my mind, body, heart and soul felt so connected and I experienced utter bliss.
I am giving this retreat a score of 10 because it is so excellent and I enjoyed it so much.
The retreat provided a good balance of strengthening and restorative practice along with movement meditation and time for reflection. The sounds included such a drumming, chants, poetry reading enhanced relaxation and recovery. The practice seemed to be mindfully thought out to assist in this. The optional termazcal (mayan sweat lodge) contributed to more healing and restoration although this may not be for everyone.
What can I say about the food: it was excellent catering vegetarian and vegan. The meals contributed to healing of the body along with the mind and soul. The retreat has left an aftermath of a sense of peace and calm that is continuing. I did the Santosha retreat and plan on doing another one in May.
