PURPOSEFUL YOGA RETREAT
Ready for an escape from your routine? From the craziness of the world? From the habits that aren’t working for you? From the “busy” that keeps you from connecting—with nature, spirit, others, and most importantly, yourself? Ready to immerse yourself in a week of activities that help you THRIVE?
Wake up with yoga, the sunrise, and the sound of the ocean. Actually, if you want coffee you can wake up to a tray delivered to your bungalow first. Whether your idea of a delicious breakfast is a green smoothie, a Mexican specialty like chilaquiles, or eggs and bacon with fresh papaya and pineapple you’ll be fueled for the day.
Stepping out of your environment is one of the best tools for reframing how you’re doing life. It’s like getting a “do over.”
Not only do you need time away from your normal routine, but you also get the most benefit from an approach that extends beyond the week of your retreat.
Your Retreat (no yoga experience required) offers:
- Daily yoga…
- Warm ocean breezes…
- Time for rest and renewal…
- Time for play…
- An opportunity to be of service…
- A cool group of people…
AND facilitated group time to help grow your self-care practice using tools like Purposeful Yoga and guided meditations for an empowering, vitalizing, and transformative week.
Your retreat includes:
- Seven nights of ocean view lodging. (You’ll be sharing with 1-3 others unless you choose the single option for an extra fee.)
- Transportation to and from the airport as long as you can coordinate times among other retreatants.
- Two Daily yoga classes with meditation.
- Coaching sessions or readings. Sometimes as a group offering and sometimes individual
- Daily Free time for relaxation, socializing with the group, or activities like kayaking or getting a massage.
- A sandy quiet beach
- A private Facebook group to connect with and stay connected with other retreatants.
- And much more!!!
Where does all this awesomeness take place?
Where better to spend a week slowing down, going inward, and playing than a quiet coastal beach town? When I first visited this place in 2012 I kept saying, “this is a perfect place for a yoga retreat.” And it is!
We’ll be spending the week in the Troncones playa area of Mexico. Part of what makes this place so special is that, while they get tourists, it’s not overly touristy. You won’t find numerous tourist activities, scores of beachfront vendors, and tacky shops. No chain restaurants here.
What you will find is a small town that welcomes visitors along with a slower pace. You’ll also find good restaurants and fun activities.
Amenities include a pool, restaurant, hammocks, gorgeous grounds, and exceptionally good customer service. You’ll be able to get a massage, pedicure, or manicure all while enjoying the ocean breeze. You’ll also have access to wifi in the common areas. And did I mention that you’re just steps away from the beach where you can walk for miles?
And the yoga…
Another type of yoga
You’ll also have the opportunity to provide service to the local community. In previous years we’ve brought books and school supplies for the local children and schools. We may do some beach clean up during the week too. These activities are also optional.
Life before and after…
Our journey together doesn’t begin or end the day of the retreat. You have a life before and after the retreat, right? Your retreat will include a couple of virtual pre-retreat meetings. You’ll begin to set your intention and to lay the groundwork for getting the most from your retreat with the help of a recorded mediation and our group time. You’ll get your questions answered as well as meet your fellow retreatants.
And what about after you get home? We’ll meet again to check-in on your transition to life with all those marvelous people who weren’t part of your retreat. You’ll have a chance to share your successes and challenges as well as ask questions.
WHAT FORMER RETREATANTS HAD TO SAY:
I loved it all! I love new adventures and that was really presented in a safe wonderful setting. Thanks Sharon for providing a special memory that touched on health, friendship, new adventures and beauty all around! It filled me up.
Talking with and sharing energy with wonderful “sisters” was an unforgettable experience. This retreat was truly a spiritual journey to me. I felt so peaceful all the time. My outside life itself has not been changed so much, but my inside self-image has been changed a lot. I didn’t know myself can have so much fun with new people and new place, especially that I can be so happy even being away from my family, I can enjoy “my life” not just as a mother or as a wife. Now I’m looking forward my future life as being “myself” again. Thank you Sharon!”
