Program

The team

The team comprises of dedicated individuals with a wealth of knowledge and full heart. They all enjoy the individual gifts they have and love sharing them with the students. They came together with an idea of creating a retreat that would empower the individual to better improve on his or her life. The idea was simple: to create a space for sharing, deepening and learning. They feel you will walk away with a greater understanding of the practice you will be thought as well as a greater sense of your true self.

The core practice is the Ashtanga Vinyasa System as taught in the traditional way, Mysore Style. You will have one class with two levels: beginners taught by Tiana (Authorized Level 1) and intermediate to advanced taught by Xico (Authorized Level 2). Even if you are completely new to this practice - it doesn't matter. This practice has the means to help you discover or rediscover the body and mind connection. Beginners will move slowly and intermediate and advanced students can move at their own pace. This retreat was designed for everyone!
