5 Days of Yoga & Inspiring Rituals with Dani Manzur

November 1 – 5th

Details:

Self-care is vital to a healthy relationship with oneself and to others. How do we find the perfect balance? Too much of it and you may find yourself overindulging, but too little of it and you may just flat out burn out. There is a balance and discipline that comes with self-care. Mindfulness is a critical component to a balanced life. This retreat offers daily sunrise and sunset guided yoga with a breathtaking view of the Caribbean waters. Through these practices and the rest of our soulful, fun filled itinerary, we will help you identify and untangle habits that no longer serve you while setting up new ones that do. Consider joining our following retreat that correlates with these principals and can help evolve with a perfect 10-day retreat.

About Dani Manzur:

I have been very fortunate to have received teachings from various masters that have traced my lifestyle forever. I have been teaching yoga for the past 14 years and have received numerous certifications: 500hrs Vinyasa, 200hrs GAVY Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow, 200hr Ashram and 30hrs Chakra Yoga teachers training. I have no doubt that throughout the years this list will keep growing and growing because yoga is universal, and all styles and teachings always have something beautiful to share. During our week together at Copal Retreat, we will work on classic sequences tailored to the groups needs with modifications. This work will challenge you: focusing on your roots, creating conscience in the ‘here and now’ by letting go of the mind and connecting with your internal knowledge. This will lead you to physical body connection and a new perspective as a spectator of your own story.

Escape Expectations and Find Joy in What Is – Tracy Allen

November 10th -15th 2019

Details:

Expectations. We all have them, expectations of ourselves, others, the world around us, and how we expect things to be. Come spend a week releasing all of these expectations and responsibilities and find joy in what is. Use the strength, mobility, and flexibility of the body in your firey morning flow to find that same strength, mobility and flexibility off the mat. Use the grounding energy of your cooling evening yin/restorative practice to stay grounded in life when it doesn’t go as planned.

Tracy Allen’s down-to-earth style of teaching is infused with humor and a light-hearted approach for all levels, ages, and abilities.

Tracy is a Philadelphia vinyasa/hatha and yin yoga teacher who believes in facilitating a well-rounded, functional practice grounded in mobility, flexibility, and strength in order to translate those qualities off the mat. And a little fun never hurts!

You’ll feel totally at home. Janet and her staff make all guests feel like you are spending time with great friends at their beautiful, expansive abode. Come alone and make great new friends or bring your whole gang!

All classes are held on the rooftop overlooking the blue ocean waters. Enjoy delicious, authentic meals; complimentary beach massage; newly renovated accommodations; daily included activities and excursions; beach and pool; or opt out when you need to just be.

RETRAITE DE YOGA « En terre Maya »

AVEC TERESA GONGORA

16 au 23 novembre 2019

Details:

Une semaine à Riviera Maya, au Mexique pour plonger pleinement dans le merveilleux monde du yoga et ainsi avoir le privilège de découvrir le Mexique différemment. Cette retraite vous

permettra d’éveiller une énergie d’ancrage, de guérison et de vitalité. Je vous ai préparé des séquences spécifiques reliées aux Rasas (mot sanscrit qui veut dire, savourer, essence, nectar). Chaque pratique se fera à partir des centres énergétiques de notre corps qui sont connectés aux éléments dans l’univers. Cette expérience vous fera vivre une revitalisation de tout votre être en bénéficiant du pouvoir du « nectar » de vie. De plus, des activités exceptionnelles et uniques seront offertes à tous nos invités. Les pratiques de yoga (adaptées à tous les niveaux) seront accompagnées de musique, des pranayamas (respirations conscientes), de méditations, de mudras (gestes des mains) et de mantras (chants sacrées) pour ancrer vitalité et énergie.

« Si vous êtes accompagné par une personne qui ne souhaite pas faire de yoga, celle-ci pourra tout de même participer à toutes les autres activités de groupe. »

A PROPOS DE TERESA…

Teresa est une passionnée de Yoga, certifiée par Shiva Rea, « Samudra » (The Global School of Living Yoga) aux États-Unis, où elle continue à se ressourcer continuellement. En plus de son parcours avancé en yoga, Teresa cumule un parcours d’expériences de plus de 30 années, où le fitness et l’entraînement personnel, lui ont permis de connaître le corps humain sous tous les axes.

Teresa a plongé à fond dans l’univers du Yoga lorsqu’elle mit les pieds sur le sol de Kripalu, véritable temple de Yoga reconnu mondialement. Elle est littéralement tombée amoureuse de cette pratique et depuis ce jour-là, elle est inspirée et elle inspire. Elle a étudié le yoga avec plusieurs maîtres renommés mais lorsqu’elle a goûté l’enseignement de Shiva Rea, elle a su que le Prana Vinyasa était sa voie. L’attraction des opposés; le FEU (pure énergie) et l’EAU (fluide), la TERRE (bien ancrée) et l’AIR (dynamique et douce) rejoignent les pôles de sa vie personnelle.

Elle est née et a grandi au Mexique, de là son atout de parler trois langues; espagnol, français et anglais. Mais aujourd’hui c’est au Québec où elle se réveille chaque matin remplie de gratitude, elle apprécie le bonheur qui est présent en chaque journée.

Son intention est de s’épanouir au quotidien par l’enseignement et le partage. Elle adore transmettre ce qu’elle apprend de ses maîtres et de ses propres expériences, de façon authentique, naturelle et consciente. Teresa laisse le « Bhava » ou l’état d’être, s’installer et on ressent la connexion entre le corps et l’âme dans le « flow ».

Mature, humble et authentique, Teresa sera toujours étudiante. « Pour pouvoir enseigner, il faut d’abord apprendre et ensuite pratiquer ce que nous apprenons ». Comme le « Vinyasa », tout a un début, un milieu et une fin et ainsi nous recommençons encore et encore. L’évolution du soi est un processus sans fin, tout comme les Vinyasas qui se retrouvent partout dans la nature qui nous entoure.

Teresa anime des retraites de yoga et des ateliers, en plus d’enseigner dans plusieurs studios de yoga au Québec.

New Year’s Manifestation : A Yoga and Pilates Retreat

Yuuki first began practicing Pilates in 2015 and immediately fell in love with the health and wellness world. After performing for several years with the Disneyland Resort and the Disney Cruise Line, and experiencing several injuries in her dance and stage combat career, Yuuki found Classical Pilates to be the most corrective form of exercise that has continued to help her in her healing. Yuuki is working under the mentorship of her teachers Pamela Debiase and Daniela Escobar at Westwood Pilates, where she currently teaches and works with clients of all movement backgrounds and levels.

Yuuki also has an extensive background in yoga, having studied with Saraswathi Jois in India and completing certifications under Liz Arch and Tamal Dodge. She now combines her love for both yoga and Pilates to gain a better understanding of the body and how clients can recover from and prevent future injuries.

Yuuki currently resides in Los Angeles, where she continues to study and share her passion for movement and its ability to heal both body and mind. She loves to write in her spare time and has been featured with Mindbodygreen, Yoga Journal, and Funky Feminist. Her highest hope is to continue to inspire others just as much as her teachers, family, and friends have inspired her.

Reconnecting to Wholeness a Yoga Retreat with Yinet Gonzales

Feb 24th – March 1st 2020

Details:

Reconnecting to Wholeness

The higher state of being is where we are at ease and peace within ourselves, and sometimes we need to scape our daily enviroment in order to connect to that space inside that is always whole; never broken, never lacking. Join Yinet for a week of reconnecting with your true self, an opportunity to drop the masks and labels we give ourselves to conform to society; literary a break from life. Every morning we’ll wake up Saluting the Sun, with an all-levels Master Yoga Class that includes Kiyas, Pranayama and Mantras to cleanse, balance and energize your body, followed by a few minutes of Svadhyaya (self-study) where we’ll reflect and journal on specific questions designed to help you dive deep into your soul’s journey and from there create a map to your ideal future. During the days there’ll be a variety of optional activities mixed with lots of sweet down time. In the evenings we’ll have a second Yoga class focused on healing and psychosomatic balance. These will vary from more gentle asana practices based on mindfulness to pure Yin Yoga, ending with a Yoga Nidra session designed for the Anandamaya Kosha (Bliss Sheath) to tap into that ever-present inner joy inherent to the human being.

You can also expect some Salsa dancing with Yinet! With her fun Salsa lessons you’ll be able to embody the music and let the steps follow.

About Yinet

Born and raised in Cuba, Yinet first got introduced to Metaphysics, meditation and subtle body energy in her early 20’s through her Reiki teacher and started practicing healing arts on friends and family. Moving to British Columbia in 2010, Osoyoos became her home. Meditation was her main practice, and life eventually brought her into Vipassana Meditation, a Buddhism-based practice that totally changed her life and gave her a purpose. Having attended 4 Vipassana courses, with almost a decade of practice and varied meditation training, she’s learnt simple yet effective techniques to guide people into their bodies for an interoceptive experience. Yinet is a 500RYT with the Yoga Alliance, graduated from the South Okanagan Yoga Academy. With training in a variety of styles ( including Kid’s Yoga, Restorative and Yin Yoga, Mindfulness meditation, Yoga Nidra, SUP Yoga and Nada Yoga) and studies in more therapeutic uses of yoga (such as yoga for Chronic pain, and Trauma Sensitive Yoga) Yinet loves delivering classes that are not only unconventional, fun and safe for the body; but that also ignite self-awareness and self-growth. She is passionate about functional movement and psychosomatic energies. Her life purpose and her mission is to help people connect with that teacher within them; by making yoga and meditation accessible to anyone, through techniques that are easy to take and apply beyond the mat.

She is currently the owner of Mindful Studio+ in beautiful Osoyoos in British Columbia, Canada.
