This is no ordinary meditation and yoga retreat. What makes it unique is the blend of experiences you receive. Beginners and advanced people get to explore mind and body by getting to the heart of yoga and meditation, each complementing and enhancing the other. It's a unique formula that gives you a new lense to look at life with greater perspective and clarity. And you get to place the emphasis where you like — more yoga and action, more meditation and tranquility, or even just giving yourself that extra time to relax poolside. It's the ultimate mind body retreat.
Meditation is easily accessible when presented by highly experienced teacher, Brian Hilliard. The initial challenge soon gives way to genuinely transformative experience. You will discover how meditation offers secret keys to yoga practice.
Beginners will appreciate yoga’s emphasis on increasing strength and flexibility. All yogins will explore how yoga is a gateway to enhancing our understanding of ourselves emotionally, intuitively and intellectually. Active and passive yoga, yang and yin, appeal to different personality types, and are offered in a balanced way. Get to the heart of yoga and discover how it supports meditation.
