About The Event

A Renewal Experience for Students and Teachers in Nature

Join us for a a renewal experience for yoga students and teachers in Troncones, 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 Manzanillo Boutique Hotel and Casa Las Tejas Private Beach Villa. And we'll enjoy delicious, healthy seafood and vegetarian entrees prepared by professional gourmet chefs.

Each day, we'll offer two therapeutic yoga classes focused on restoring balance to body, mind and spirit with asana, pranayama and meditation at Yoga del Pacifico, a short walk down on the beach from the hotel and villa. Zoreh and Elise will address adaptations of certain yoga poses and breathing techniques for a wide variety of conditions such as poor posture, lower back pain, chronic neck and shoulder pain, scoliosis, lordosis, kyphosis as well as neurological and organic conditions. This retreat is open to students as well as teachers who wish to learn how to treat these conditions for their students.

There will be ample opportunities for rest and 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.
