Discover embodied stability and ease with this inspiring yoga and dance retreat in Troncones, Mexico, a tranquil and beautiful beach, washed by the warm clear waters of the Pacific Ocean. Troncones is located 20 miles from the fabulous sleepy fishing village of Zihuatanejo. We will be staying on Manzanilla Bay, the most protected and beautiful beach in Troncones at Casa Marea and Merece tus Sueños. You'll enjoy delicious, healthy seafood and vegetarian entrees prepared by professional gourmet chefs with two meals included each day.
Just a short walk down the glorious beach, you will arrive at Yoga del Pacifico, the outdoor studio where each day Zoreh and Tiffany will offer two classes exploring yoga asana and breath to unfold natural, fluid movement inside the structure of the pose. As restrictions fall away you'll expand authentically into your own unique sense of play, joy, and expression of organic dance.
During your retreat you will enjoy ample opportunities for restful, quiet time, or to partake in many activities such as swimming, bird watching, eco-tours with special hikes to caves, a swimming hole and a kayaking adventure on a nearby lagoon. Horseback riding, massage, shopping trips to Zihuatanejo, a boat trip to beautiful Ixtapa Island with snorkeling, and deep sea fishing are other optional activities.
PLUS!!! something truly magical is happening the week of the retreat: a full lunar eclipse, which will be visible from the beach in the early morning of Tuesday, November 8th. For those who wish to rise and see the eclipse early, Tiffany is offering to prepare personalized readings of the moon in the birth charts of those who wish to participate. In western astrology, the placement of our natal moon gives us insight into our relationship with our feelings, our subconscious, and our prior lifetimes.
Zoreh Afsarzadeh, founder and director of High Desert Yoga, has been teaching yoga since 1985. Zoreh’s upbringing in Iran started her on the path of Sufism, meditation, and spirituality, and during her lifetime, she has studied numerous methodologies including Iyengar, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, Siddha yoga, and that of the American Yoga College. Zoreh is passionate about yoga and exploring the heavenly spots in the world, so for more than 20 years, she has offered yoga and meditation retreats in inspiring locations such as Mexico, Thailand, India, Costa Rica, and Bali, as well as at various locations in New Mexico. Zoreh and her husband Charlie have created a beautiful outdoor studio, Yoga del Pacifico, on the beach in Troncones, Mexico, where she and other many well-known teachers regularly host retreats. Zoreh's joyous personality and sense of humor endear her to her students with a teaching style that is both nurturing and fun, and her teaching combines a delicate knowledge of the body that allows a compassionate authentic expression of the postures to emerge.
Tiffany Bucknam took her first Yoga class in 1994. She brings decades of living the esoteric teachings of Yoga and the application of Social Work onto her mat, as well as years of work in corrective and rehabilitative movement. Through her private practice, Evolition, Tiffany teaches Yoga, physical and emotional fitness, and provides counseling to those seeking healing and integration. She also co-owns of The Akasha Collective, a shared space for teachers of the contemplative arts in Wheat Ridge, CO. Tiffany’s teaching interests include personalizing the practice to accommodate individual needs, making the esoteric practical, and the interaction between body and psychology. Her students appreciate the safe and welcoming space she holds and her attention to alignment. She is so excited to share the joy of movement with you!
