Retreats

Yoga + ayurveda retreats offer a truly relaxing and rejuvenating vacation.  Return home invigorated and inspired to resume your weekly routine and important role in the world.  A retreat also offers an opportunity to practice close to senior teachers, to practice unhooked from one's responsibilities, to practice as a soul on a spiritual journey.  We choose locations carefully and emphasize simple spiritual and outdoor living when selecting.  We attempt to have classes outdoors when possible.

Indonesia Retreat Overview

The main feel of this retreat is fun, light-hearted, and full of adventure with time to relax, explore temples, nature, and your inner self.

Not curriculum heavy, but enjoy short morning practices folllowed by free time to spend in the water (best time is in morning) snorkeling or relaxing at the beach.  Then longer (90m) afternoon and evening practice/curriculum classes.  All are optional.  Plenty of free time.
