Full Description

Hatha - Each style derives from Hatha yoga so in essence each practitioner who does physical yoga does Hatha. In a short story version, it's about balance, forcing ourselves to find the balance. Each session will be 90 minutes starting with centering, setting your intention, connecting with controlling and listening to breathe. The warm up follows with awakening the muscles and we move onto a flow of different poses consisting of alignment, balancing, hip openers, arm balances, and inversions in different variations catering to different comfort levels. We are not there to compete with others, this is your personal journey, move with your body. Discussion to follow if you choose to be lazy and talk yoga. :-)

The retreat can be defined as a simple weekend getaway to relax, dive, snorkel, take a stroll at the bird sanctuary south of the island, ride a bike, rent a scooter, take a dip in the pool, get a massage, and do yoga.

Happy Hour - Why not unwind with your host in a small selection of tropical light beverages? Happy Hour is included and tips are welcomed.
