INSPIRE your practice! By experiencing wholeness, purna, learn how to best create balance for your own body and mind, and how to use these skills to create magic in yoga for others. Find your authentic expression within our sacred container as we come to celebrate the heart of who we really are. Each day we will explore different styles of Yoga, learning the tools to incorporate our major themes within asana, and beyond; sequencing, theme-weaving, mudra, bandha, mantra, pranayama, philosophy, meditation, Ayurveda and Aromatherapy.
Our 7 day course focuses on the art of sequencing and assists in a Holistic way. Each day we honor the 5 Elements and integrate them into our practice and teachings. The morning module will be a Sequencing workshop full of tools to inspire, create and enhance the yoga flow sequence for healing, connection and transformation. The afternoon module will be an Alignment & Assists workshop to explore the 5 movements of the spine and incorporate Thai Yoga Massage to provide support through our healing touch. We will take our practice to the next level with theme-weaving, bandhas, mudras, aromatherapy, mantra, meditation, and pranayama.
Dance sweetly into a space of deep reflection. In silence together, we will explore medicinal movement in order to connect more with ourselves. This retreat is an embodied journey through yoga, dance, and meditation nestled away in the vibrant surroundings of Lake Atitlan. An authentic opportunity to heal through ancient and therapeutic movement practices, we invite you to join us as we embark on a transformational experience through self reflection.
This retreat will focus on the teaching of Thai massage as a way of life as we open to exploring, feeling, dancing, chanting, stretching, and harmonizing with ourselves first so that we can share this practice with others. Thai Yoga Massage is a truly wonderful experience for both giver and receiver as energy blockages are released, boundaries dissolve and deep healing occurs in a space of presence and meditation.

“The Five Rituals for transitioning spaces came to me based on a deep desire to honor the spaces I have spent time in without feeling like I’m rushing until the very last second of my departure so that I am not anticipating the predictable chaos that comes along with leaving a space I once called home. It means slowing down, setting intention and tapping into a feeling of grace, ease and fluidity.”
“By combining these practices I’ve enhanced my skills as a healer with greater awareness on the power of the energetic body and the stories our bodies hold physically. If we continue to do the work internally to unify with mind, body and spirit — Yoga — we will be able to maintain balance and health in the physical body — the ultimate goal of Thai Massage.”
“In Bali, riding freely on the back of a scooter, wind in my hair, breeze on my face and the beauty of the open road, I found myself present, connected, and one within me and everything around me. No thoughts, nothing; emptiness, or complete fullness if you will. That is until, I remembered I was supposed to be the one directing the driver, staying alert and letting him know when to turn right. So, we missed the turn. I looked down at my phone and it took me out of this precious present moment.”
“A big head spinner this season for me is commonly hearing the phrase “I am not the body” or “I am focusing my upper chakras”. Now, as a yoga practitioner and teacher, I understand the philosophy behind this phrase, but in my experience and here at the lake in San Marcos, they are not realizing also that….We are the body. “
“For many of us, ‘doing yoga’ means getting on our mats, stretching out, strengthening our core, and relaxing in savasana. But where did this idea come from? What journeys does it present for us within? And what does it really mean to be steady and comfortable in your seat?”
