Upcoming Retreats

Warm up for winter – Annabel Kershaw

Nov 4th-10th 2018 | Paamul Beach

Details:

Nov 04, 7:00 PM – Nov 10, 11:00 PM
Paamul beach, Carr. Cancún – Tulum, Paa Mul, Q.R., Mexico

November brings warm, crystal clear water to the Mayan Riviera. The clarity of the sea leads us deeper into our own awareness and the sweetness that resides there. Join us in magical Paamul as we prepare for the chilly months ahead with a nourishing practice of self care and joy. Let’s face it, for most of us, the time leading out of a busy summer and fall can become a little heavy and grey as the days shorten and the cold descends. During this week we will stoke the tropical fire within and take time for introspection and release. The practice will be a mix of Yin and Yang, Action and Restorative. This will be one delicious week and you will AHHHHHHHHH yourself all the way home and through the winter. All levels welcome.

Annabel lives in Yoga Central – Vancouver BC – and is a 500 hr RYT (Registered Yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance) with additional certifications in Yin, Restorative, Hot and pre and post Natal as well as studies in Anatomy. She loves nothing more than practicing in a hot climate where the mind and body open freely with sunrise and flow easily through to the end of the day and the deep rest that comes with the sound of the ocean waves.

Also an actor and singer, Annabel brings a sense of joy and creativity to each practice, encouraging community and connection with every one of her students. When she found Paamul – after taking many retreats in many places, this was the Yoga home that she had been searching for. Annabel can’t wait to bring her students “home.”

Comeflow with us – Kerr Mcleod

Nov 12-18th, 2018 | Paamul Beach

Details:

Nov 12, 7:00 PM – Nov 18, 11:00 PM
Paamul beach, Carr. Cancún – Tulum, Paa Mul, Q.R., Mexico

I have decided to host another retreat in Pamul, Mexico, because it is without doubt, the perfect location! It’s almost too good to be true. The water-front accommodations, fresh organic food, endless available activities, wonderful support staff— all within a magical Caribbean backdrop, makes for truly exquisite week. Furthermore, we are very fortunate to have a wonderful co-host named Janet who is from Mexico and has spent many years living in the area. Her involvement is invaluable, because it allows us to experience the infinite beauty and rich local cultural from somebody who knows all the best places and secrets! I encourage anybody who wants to get out of town, do something profoundly nourishing for themselves, and explore a little bit of heaven on earth, to join us for what will surely be a memorable refuge from the stresses of life.

I tend to teach a breath and mindfulness-centered practice, including variety from styles such as hatha, vinyasa, yin, massage, restorative, and meditation. I love including music in my classes. Furthermore, I instruct with an underlying athletic tone, but have a calm and easy-going nature. I am not overly serious, I have a playful nature, and tend to bring light humour to the practice as well. I think I have a nice balance of challenging students to build strength, as well as facilitating a deep sense of surrender and relaxation. It is true gift to assist others in finding space in their body, and peace in their mind.

Throughout these 5 days together at Copal Retreat, we will dedicate each day to the resonance of the light and shadow of each one of the elements and how they can help us balance. Throughout our time together we will learn how to reset our mental programming, to give it space and to allow our own nature to be re-born again. We will become more conscious of ourselves and our surroundings to become more loving and compassionate.

As you learn these iconic Characters’ stories, you will begin to unravel your own, deepening your understanding of how you are and who you are, while also discerning ways to rewrite your own mythos to be more truthful and empowering. Each morning and evening session will include mythic yoga storytelling, yoga practices (asana, Qoya, pranayama, mudra, mantra, meditation), and journaling. This Yoga and Writing retreat will nourish your creativity and personal growth, while challenging your long-held assumptions about your own story in a playful, supportive environment.

As a way to bring the sacred into our daily lives, we will also experience unique intentional practices that go beyond the yoga mat: Walking Meditation, Cenote Diving, Despacho Gratitude, and an authentic Mayan Cacao Ceremony.
