Creating Waves: The Alchemy of Insight

In this retreat, we learn to write from our whole being by moving our bodies through yoga poses, stilling our minds in meditation, and letting go of the inner critic in a safe and supportive writing circle.

We will alternate sessions of writing with sessions of yoga and meditation. All sessions are optional; if you choose, you may wish to go for a walk along the sandy beaches, continue your own personal writing, take a rest, or engage in some other activity during the retreat. This is your retreat. Do whatever nourishes your body, your spirit, and your own creative soul.

Dancing Life from Your Core, Core Connexion Dance & Transformational Arts®

with Eva Vigran, MA Somatic Psychology

Join Eva Vigran, MA Somatic Psychology and Founder of CoreConnexion movement practice, for a seven-day retreat and workshop that invites each of us to rejuvenate, renew and “reboot” our energy system. We will discover and explore the different colors and facets of our individual and authentic aliveness through playful connection with ourselves, others and nature. Through the simple process of the “8 keys of connection and aliveness” we can get in touch with our own innate resources, vitality, creativity and strength at our core. 

Each day begins with a somatic meditation preparing body and mind to embark on a journey that invites movement and stillness, listening and expression, body and soul, community awareness and co-creation. In the afternoons or evenings we will play in nature to get in touch with our inner nature. There also will be time to explore the surroundings, go whale watching and just hang out at the beach!!!

Mar de Jade is along Mexico’s Tropical Pacific Coast, about 90 minutes north of popular tourist destination Puerto Vallarta. It is located on the south end of Chacala Beach, Nayarit, Mexico.

Alley Ramon, M.A., E-RYT

One of the many gifts of the Yoga practice is that we are faced with the challenge and the ability to go internally, find what is present within us, and make a call to action out in the world around us We also learn to relax into ourselves and find joy along the journey. Practicing Yoga away from the responsibilities of everyday life will re-inspire your mind and soul, and remind you of the joy to be found within you and around you. The Joy of the Journey Yoga Retreat is that reminder; to live fully in love, passion and inspiration.

Each day will consist of two Yoga classes; a vigorous Vinyasa class in the morning, followed by a more relaxing afternoon session with meditation. Each day will have space for free time to roam the beach, swim in the ocean and pools, the opportunity to get a massage, or relax on a hammock and read a book.

Jumping into the depths of becoming a yoga teacher or having a deep personal practice takes courage and confidence. It means developing the ability to know who we are as practitioners as well as teachers and being grounded in our authentic selves in both realms.  Beyond the teacher trainings there are few resources for teachers and advanced students to come together and learn from each other, to explore the many branches and streams of yoga, to dive down and explore the true depth of their abilities and passions.
