There are also plenty of activities to keep kids busy, as well as swimming pools, play areas, and a games room.

Yoga and meditation

Embrace the start of each day on this retreat with a soulful and uplifting Vinyasa yoga class that accommodates all levels. Nina is passionate about curating her classes to offer unique and poetic insight, as well as sensitively guiding each student to reach their "physical edge" and to challenge themselves safely.
