Baja Yoga Retreat- postponed
Retreat Prana Del Mar

It is my sincere pleasure to invite you to retreat for the love of yoga at the luxurious Prana Del Mar on the southern tip of Baja, Mexico outside of Cabo San Lucas. This will be my third visit teaching here and can attest that it’s beauty and comfort are hard to beat. Join me for 5 nights in this gorgeous, secluded center that caters to quiet contemplation and authentic practices of personal growth for a memorable yoga retreat.

In the past I have held international retreats that span 2 weekends. However, I’ve found that this can often be a stress and hard to commit to being away from families and work so long. My aim is to give you a hearty dose of retreat but respect the needs of many students (and my own family) in getting away. Hopefully you will find a Saturday to Thursday yoga retreat hits the sweet spot in filling your cup and making it back during the less busy travel time. There are many direct flights from Chicago.

The Yoga:

We will have 2 yoga classes a day with just me! On travel days I will lead a short pick-me-up session pre-dinner on Saturday and early morning Thursday to anyone onsite. Both yoga studios are stocked with high quality props and yoga mats. The meditation room has comfortable zafus and is set away from common areas.

Our practices will include asana, functional movement exercises, strength training with prop drills, meditation and pranayama. This retreat will accommodate mixed level yoga and injuries but is not for people with zero yoga experience.

Students on retreat tend to experience great gains with the smaller class size and emphasis on individual attention. It is my mission to take a group out of their regular studio setting or home practice and share more in depth the practices and indulge the learning experience. Leave refreshed and inspired!

Amenities:

Prana Del Mar has a 360 degree view of nature. Dispersed throughout the gardens are hammocks, a meditation labyrinth and bocce ball. The rooftop patio is perfect for evening moon gazing or morning sunrises. You will experience both the sunrise and sunset, ocean views, desert, mountains and several miles of shoreline to hike.

Facing west the heated pool, wet deck and hot tub are a fine place for lounging, reading, and enjoying the company. It is adjacent to the common building so you’ll never miss a meal or be far from the gardens.

Our retreat dates are during sea turtle season and a local preservation group offers our guests the chance to partake in a sea turtle release at sunset at their nearby incubating preserve. During your stay you may opt to add a horseback riding excursion that takes off just steps from the yoga studio.

Available during your retreat is access to therapeutic massage and spa treatments. Indulge in aromatherapy treatments, body wraps and facials.

Although we are right on the Pacific Ocean it is so powerful at this location that swimming is not advised and there is no lifeguard. There are miles of shoreline to sunbathe, stroll, hike or horseback ride on. I just wouldn’t go in past your knees. The undertow here is not to be taken lightly. It’s sea turtle migration season during our stay so the oceanside experience still has much to offer!
