Full Description

• Discover your personal anchor
• Recognize, deepen, and honor your intuition
• Commune with nature, the divine, and a band of wise women
• Soothe your soul in the Texas salt water

Sankalpa Creation: Sankalpa is your deepest, most heartfelt wish or desire. After you arrive and get settled in your room, our team of teachers will be on hand to share afternoon tea and help you create an intention or affirmation for the weekend.

Gourmet Vegetarian Meals, Opening Circle and Beach Bonfire: Throughout the weekend our delicious vegetarian meals will be provided by a professional chef dedicated to our group. On Thursday night we’ll start our retreat experience by coming together full circle to create a group altar and get to know one another. A beach bonfire will follow, weather permitting.

Yin Yoga: Yin yoga is a particular style of Hatha yoga intended to help you reclaim your own space and mobility in the body using long-held stretches and postures. Yin yoga focuses mostly on the connective tissues of the legs, hips and spine. Because the postures are generally held for 3-5 minutes, the experience is more meditative.

Morning Sadhana: Mornings will be dedicated to a meditation practice incorporating mantra and movement. Bring in the day by utilizing the power of what the Earth has to offer in this beautiful setting: ocean waves, tides and sun.

Yoga Nidra: Yoga Nidra translates to “yogic sleep” in which the body goes to sleep and the mind remains alert. During this session you'll be asked to focus on your sankalpa, and then be verbally guided through a 30-45 minute practice in savasana. We’ll follow up our Yoga Nidra with time spent in silence to allow you the opportunity to process and integrate your
thoughts, emotions and experiences.

Closing Circle: We’ll come together full circle once again on Sunday before heading home. You’ll leave the retreat feeling refreshed and invigorated … and having met a group of amazing women to share and support your continuing journey!
