Yoga Retreat to Mexico

Held at Mar de Jade, Mexico Feb 12 – 19, 2022 with Emily Alderaen, RYT Chandravali Yoga

Your joy is your sorrow unmasked…When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy...When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight…Verily you are suspended like scales between your sorrow and your joy...Only when you are empty are you at standstill and balanced.  -Kahlil Gibran

Each morning I will offer alignment-based Vinyasa classes with an elemental flavor. Vinyasa is defined as  “breath-synchronized movement,” which can mean flowing rather quickly  between postures; however, my classes have a strong alignment component, so there is a lot of emphasis placed on pausing to fine-tune postures to best serve individual bodies. I draw inspiration from the energetic elements of my surroundings, and I incorporate this awareness into movement practice. This is an invitation into embodied presence.
