I would like to tell that everything in this retreat was above my expectations and was so lucky to find it. I came first to relax and take care of myself in the nature and I received so much more. The location was in a so peaceful and beautiful place close to Andes with only nature and water around. We are living in a so cute house with this old style fashioned with wood everywhere, our room was super welcoming with window opened on the lovely nature around, also sharing my rooming was a great nice experience. I slept in a crazy way so so well. Adding to that the food was extraordinary delicious, beautifully presented and so healthy, I felt regenerating my body as well my mind and my eyes.

Yoga classes are ongoing Tuesdays 9:15am-10:30am

Suggested donation is $20 due by 3pm Monday before class

Ashtanga is a powerful style of yoga that involves matching the movement of the breath with the movement in and out of postures. We use a set sequence of poses which we build upon as we grow together and which can be adapted to any level and ability. In this weekly class Lara emphasizes the three-pointed focus of breath, gaze, and posture and suggests ways for using this focus to transform the practice into a moving meditation. Prepare to sweat if you want to or move more slowly and have any pose modified to meet your needs.
