About The Event

This retreat is open to anyone with scoliosis or back issues who is looking to learn ways to relieve back problems with yoga, and deepen their practice in a magical, tranquil environment.

The retreat will be located in the idyllic retreat site of Yoga del Pacifico on Manzanilla Bay, one of the most beautiful and tranquil beaches in Troncones, Mexico located 20 miles from the fishing village of Zihuatanejo. You will be staying at Casa Manzanillo Boutique Hotel and Casa Las Tejas Private Beach Villa, just minutes away from Yoga del Pacifico Brunch and dinner are included with delicious seafood and vegetarian entrees for dinner from top restaurants nearby. There will be two yoga sessions a day with plenty of time in between for relaxing in your favorite style. Hanging out in a hammock, swimming, surfing, snorkeling, hiking, horseback riding, bird watching, massage, pedicures and manicures are all available options.

This retreat will address different back issues including scoliosis and general asymmetry of the body, poor posture, lower back pain and chronic neck and shoulder pain. Elise will address how to adapt yoga poses therapeutically for these conditions with a focus of alignment, lengthening and strengthening the back and breath awareness. The retreat is appropriate for those dealing with their own back-related issues as well as yoga teachers who wish to assist their students to address their conditions.
