During this retreat, you will stay in Kariwak Village, where you will find a tranquil tropical island retreat. Choose from a poolside cabana or a garden room, each providing luxurious harmoniously-designed accommodations. Kariwak Village is in sync with nature. This is the ultimate idyllic escape for those who appreciate the finer things in life, while having all of their senses aroused by the surrounding nature. There are 18 poolside cabanas that are closer to the restaurant and the main building, and 6 garden rooms that are closer to the yoga ajoupa and the hammocks.
This bungalow style garden rooms, are rooms are really close to the hammocks and jacuzzi. Wooden shutters and wall accents, high ceilings over a king sized bed, and a natural skylight in the bathroom give these rooms a more secluded feel perfect for couples or a solitary retreat.
Tucked into the gardens surrounding the main pool, the poolside cabanas are filled with natural light from the sliding glass door and the whimsical portal window. High ceilings and cool tile floors create a spacious, yet intimate feel to these rooms, which are ideal for couples or small families. Some of these rooms can be interconnected to create a two-bedroom suite.
Your practice space for the week is the ajoupa, which is a marvelous open air venue with a towering thatched roof and beautiful hardwood floors surrounded by lush gardens.
You will gather in the ajoupa each morning for a guided meditation. Every day will have a different mindfulness focus, such as breath meditation, body awareness meditation, listening meditation, walking meditation on the beach, metta (loving kindness) meditation, as well as some simple chanting through the chakras.
Each meditation will be accompanied by the sounds of Tibetan singing bowls. After breakfast, you will meet again in the ajoupa for an invigorating Hatha yoga practice taught by Darcie. One morning, Lisa will teach a core-focused meridian yoga class.
You will have an opportunity to explore the area until mid afternoon. You can have lunch, get a treatment from Lisa, go for a swim, nap in a hammock, or simply walk on the beach. The options are endless and the time is yours to enjoy!
Your afternoon class will be a scrumptious way to wind down the day with a cooling, gentle Hatha yoga practice and various pranayama (breathing) exercises. Lisa will teach two afternoon classes, one meridian yoga class and one elemental balance self-care class. Dinner starts at 19:00, so you will have the early evening to enjoy as you wish.
You will take one day off your yoga practice to experience the tranquility of a seven-hour chartered sailing cruise aboard a 42-feet catamaran to a secluded beach for lunch, snorkeling, kayaking, and swimming. The day cruise goes from 09:30 to 16:30.
During this retreat, sail aboard Picante, a 42-feet privately chartered catamaran with Captain Markus and his first mate. Enjoy complimentary unlimited beverages and a delicious homemade lunch buffet. Sail with the dolphins, swim with manta rays, sea turtles, and an array of vibrant sea life at a private coral reef, and bask on a secluded beach accessible only from the water.
Darcie is a yoga teacher in Toronto with ten years of teaching experience.

Lisa also has been teaching during the past 10 years shiatsu, Pilates, meridian stretching, and partner massage.
