Retreats

Yoga retreats offer both a quiet break from the stresses of daily life and a chance to dive more deeply into practice. With the support of a community of like-minded individuals, we can address our challenges both on and off the mat. If you’re so busy you don’t know how you could possibly get away for a few days, retreats are designed for you! Retreat time will include practice, meditation, time in nature and time with your fellow participants. Most importantly, retreats offer time for contemplation and insight. Expect a deeply nourishing experience.

Join Jen Campbell and Kristin Leal for seven days of deep study and profound relaxation on the breathtaking Pacific coast of Mexico. Soak in the beauty of nature as we unwind the coverings of our True Self. Each day we will explore a different dimension of our individual selves (Koshas) utilizing the alchemical practices of Yoga. Our days will be filled with Satsang, (community), asana,  breathwork, meditation, Yoga Nidra, chanting and journaling exercises.  We will also have plenty of free time for quiet contemplation, assimilation, relaxing in a hammock, lounging in the spa or exploration of the natural landscape of Mexico. Open to all levels of experience, Jen and Kristin will guide you through the process of unveiling the power, potential and promise of who we really are.

Undoubtedly, you will leave refreshed and resourced. Departing with a radiant glow,  surrounded by a supportive and loving community, you will take new practices home to help you to carry the experience back into your daily life.

A bit about my dear friend Kristin:

Kristin’s teachings are infused with the miracle of the human body and the liberating potential of movement. She is the creator of the Kaya Yoga 200- and 300-hour teacher training – graduating over 1,000 students since 2005 – and leads workshops around the world. In love with how esoteric anatomy links so effortlessly to Western anatomy, her MetaAnatomy™ trainings blend serious scientific knowledge with a sense of humor and a deep connection to the divine within us all.

Her teachers have included Sharon Gannon, Katchie Ananda, Adrienne Burke, Rodney Yee, and Rod Stryker and their beautiful teachings, along with her students, continue to inspire her every day. Since 2006 she has been working with Yogiraj Alan Finger of ISHTA yoga and has helped this yogi master translate his teachings to create his 300- hour and ISHTA marma point teacher training. A licensed massage therapist since 1995 (Swedish Institute of Massage,) she also holds certifications in Reiki, Thai massage, neuromuscular and myofascial release, and is a co-author of the book “The Yoga Fan” (2003) and the author of MetaAnatomy™ (2014) which was called “smart and sassy” by Elena Brower and “a luscious resource” by Rod Stryker.

THE PEACE OF WILD THINGS - by Wendell Berry

When despair grows in me
and I wake in the middle of the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting for their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

Reka A.

Thank you very much for the relaxing and positive weekend. Your leadership and friendship gives so much to us. You have helped me to believe in myself and to try to surround myself with love. I am stronger from within mentally and physically. No matter what happens I can breathe and I can be there for my family and friends.

Despite the current events, challenges will make me stronger as you showed me how to find my inner peace. Challenges will give me an opportunity to lead my children with example not with words that fade away in the noises of daily clutter.
