NOURISHING THE SENSES ~ BEACHSIDE RETREAT with Zoreh Afsarzadeh and Melissa Spamer
Time & Location
About The Event
Nourish your senses and sooth your being with an inspiring yoga 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 the Resort Eden and La Posado de los Raqueros which are in close proximity to each other. Both offer oceanfront bungalows and rooms as well as air-conditioned suites. Enjoy delicious, healthy seafood and vegetarian entrees prepared by professional gourmet chefs.
Just a short walk down the glorious beach, you will arrive at Yoga del Pacifico, where each day Zoreh and Melissa will offer two nourishing and revitalizing Yoga classes, inspired by the beauty of the land and sea surrounding you while on retreat ~ tropical breezes, ocean waves, the scent of plumeria, and the rustle of palms. Classes will incorporate therapeutic, gentle alignment, restorative, and Yin Yoga - with uplifting and energizing morning classes, and relaxing and contemplative afternoon classes, both suitable for all levels. Additionally, meditation, mantra and pranayama practice will be incorporated into each class
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.
