In just a few short days I will be arriving in India, blurry eyed from a long flight but awake with adrenaline. My soul will flutter with anticipation of what’s to come…..long days filled with sunshine, yoga, coconuts, chai tea, beach umbrellas, fresh juice, curry and naan, ocean breeze and relaxation. I’m excited to share my love of this colorful country while delving into yoga, Pilates and self-care. Many of you have expressed how deeply you wish you could be coming along with me. I wish you were too, and pray that one day you will leap into the adventure of retreat-ing! You can follow along on my adventure as I post photos of the retreat on Instagram. Even if you’re not an Instagram user, you can click on the link to see photos!
It’s in the high 80’s in Kovalom, a welcome break from our Winter in the West. I’m looking forward to practicing and teaching in the yogashala on the rooftop of our guesthouse, our yoga studio for the week. My teacher will be there to share Vinyasa sequences and to delve into the spiritual side, strengthening and developing the ancient yoga practices outside of movement. I’ll be dissecting movement to create proper form as so many of you are used to from my classes as well as offering several targeted workshops, all while overlooking the Arabian Sea. I will be introducing the concept of fascia hydration and teaching a specific offering on awareness of the Pelvic Floor. And of course everyone will have an opportunity to do a private postural analysis and address any nagging injuries. When I’m not on the beach or doing yoga, I’ll be taking advantage of the lushious Ayurveda treatments available in this area such as massage, oils, and the ancient healing practices of this mind-body system of health!
Psssshhhh…. Because so many of you wished you could come along but are more keen to stay closer to home, you’ve convinced me to expand my offerings. Stay tuned for info on a September weekend retreat offering in a serene and natural environment, but within an hour from home!
