During the retreat we wake up while the sun rises and experience the beauty and serenity in the midst of the tropical setting. Your day starts with your choice of a delicious herbal tea, coffee, and/or a juice or smoothie from our incredible juice bar. Guided group meditation starts at 8am. Meditation is followed immediately by asana (yoga posture) practice. It includes pranayama, asana, and relaxation.
In the afternoon we have our Art-of-Yoga lecture which includes the topics listed above. Each day we will cover one topic. At 4pm we practice a slower paced yoga class which allows us to deepen our stretches and focus on our alignment.
