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.

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico   ॐ    Jan 15-19, 2018   ॐ  $449 ($299 < 9/30)

San Miguel de Allende is a stunning small colonial city located 4 hours northwest of the capital in the rolling hills of central Mexico. Once a prominent market town and the birthplace of Mexico's independence from Spain, it fell into decline and became a near ghost-town in the late 1800s. What remained became frozen in time, and it was declared a "historic and protected town" by the Mexican government in 1926. Gradually re-discovered by writers & artists, the city's historic cobblestone streets and adobe walled-buildings are now brimming with shops, cafes, & art galleries, and the city regularly finds itself atop "world's best" lists.
