Led by Tessa Tovar & Aaron Goodman

Join us for a week long time of fellowship, meditation, and practice. Time is split between taking part in classes while having time to yourself in a safe, calm environment. 


Steal away to a sweet little village just outside of Puerto Vallarta, Xinalani! This retreat is at the very start of spring for a fresh start. Therapeutic hatha yoga and meditative yin yoga bring harmony for renewed physical and mental health.   Your journey begins with a single step.

About the Yoga Practice

The Yoga will be a blend of Yin & Yang:

YANG (HOT HATHA YOGA) 

THE YANG PRACTICE WILL BE TRADITIONAL HATHA YOGA CONSISTING OF 26 POSTURES AND 2 BREATHING EXERCISES. YOU WILL LEARN TO MASTER HOW TO HOLD YOUR BODY IN SPACE COMFORTABLY, WHERE THE DEPTH OF THE POSTURE IS IRRELAVANT AND FINDING STEADINESS AND YOUR BREATH IS PARAMOUNT. 


YANG (NOT HEATED VINYASA)

VINYASA CAN BE TRANSLATED AS MOVEMENT WITH BREATH. THE SERIES WE WILL BE PRACTICING THIS WEEK WILL BE INTRODUCTORY AND SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES AND ABILITIES. 


YIN (COOLING DEEP TISSUE RELEASE) 

IN CONTRAST THE YIN PRACTICE WILL WORK WITH CONNECTIVE TISSUE SUCH AS TENDONS, BONES, LIGAMENTS AND JOINTS OF THE BODY. THE YIN POSTURES ARE HELD FOR 1-5MINUTUES. THE IDEA IS TO COMPLETELY RELAX THE MUSCLES TO ALLOW YOUR CONNECTIVE TISSUE TO BE ACCESSED.
