About The Event
Yoga, Meditation, Yoga Nidra & SUP* Retreat
Come partake of this healing vibrant retreat in Troncones, Mexico led by three friends who love yoga, laughter, play and dance. Zoreh, Sandy and Gloria all teach in a classical style of yoga inclusive of all abilities, each bringing a vast wealth of experience, including yoga therapy, providing variations of poses for those who need them, and creative use of props and inversion ropes. Each day these teachers will offer two 2-hour yoga classes, including asana (poses), pranayama (breath work), meditation, and Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation) at Yoga del Pacifico.
We will be staying at La Posada de Los Rocqueros, on the beautiful beach in Troncones, in ocean-front rooms each with a private bath. We’ll gather daily to enjoy delicious, nourishing brunches and dinners, featuring seafood and vegetarian entrees at different local restaurants and our yoga center.
With plenty of time for rest or other activities each day, you can add just what you need to make this your own perfect retreat! For a unique experience of yoga on the dance of the ocean, two optional sessions of SUP yoga with certified SUP yoga teacher Sandy are included in the cost of the retreat. Explore, play, swim, shop, or rest. You’re sure to return home rejuvenated with a refreshed perspective!
