In theory, the holidays are supposed to be fun and relaxing. However, it can quickly become crazy and hectic. Decorations, parties, baking cookies, attending holiday performances, shopping and out of town guests….how does this leave time for self-care? All these festivities are so joyful, but can easily become just another thing on your to do list if you over-schedule and under care for yourself. It’s easy to get caught up in the season and let time for self-care slide. It’s important to take care of your body and mind by avoiding over-scheduling and doing things you love that bring you joy. Taking even a few minutes a day to be still, mindful and away from devices can make a world of difference! 

Imagine if you did that for a week….in India! This month may be too crazy to focus on self-care, but it’s always possible if you plan ahead. Give yourself the gift of a restful March by booking a Pilates & Yoga Wellness retreat to India. Leave the congestion of this world behind and step into the tropical oasis of Southern India. Join me for two classes each day of Yoga and Pilates by the Arabian Sea, sprinkled with other wellness opportunities like meditation, breath technique, Ayurveda treatments and a private postural analysis. The birthplace of yoga is the perfect place to escape to for relaxation while refining your movement practice. Your tastebuds will be delighted with Southern India’s cuisine of spice, texture and sauces, including lentils, native fruits, coconut oils/milks and curry leaves. You’ll have the opportunity to soak up knowledge of Ayurveda, India’s sister science, and experience luscious ayurvedic treatments, the ultimate in self-care. I’m looking forward to curling up with chai tea in the morning and drinking coconuts on the beach in the afternoon. The state of Kerela has a tropical climate and the beach culture of the Kovalam area will allow you to shed the hustle and bustle of home as you relax in a natural environment. 

Questions? I can answer those via email by responding to this message! We can plan a call or meet-up to talk more in depth. I hope you will take care of yourself by saying YES! See you in India!
