Women’s Empowerment Retreat

May 24 - 30, 2020

Erin and Liz invite you to a week on the coastal Riviera Nayarit, near the fishing village and surfing town of Sayulita. Nestled above the Pacific Ocean on 12 private acres of tropical jungle with a private and pristine beach, Haramara (“Mother Sea”) is an exclusive seaside yoga eco-resort offering sensual tropical harmony, magnificent 360-degree yoga pavilion views, a cliffside infinity pool, and a world class spa. It has been described as the place “where Robinson Crusoe meets Architectural Digest.”

This setting will serve as the backdrop where we will rediscover the tools to awaken our inner healer and empower ourselves to live the fullest lives we are capable of. As women, we know how easy it is to take a back seat in our own lives, oftentimes without fully realizing it until we experience physical, emotional and/or spiritual burnout. Liz and Erin have both experienced the depths of burnout and have walked through the deep questions of “who am I as a woman” and “what do I have to offer this world?” They have spent years doing, as Paulo Coelho calls, the good work: committed to not turning away from the discomfort and growing pains and malaise and instead, excavating and diving into the struggle, gaining powerful tools along the way to help them reclaim a sense of self and purpose in this fast-moving world.

They are joining forces for this special week to hold space and share with you everything they have to offer including yoga (flow, restorative, nidra), reiki, guided meditation, breathwork, writing explorations, adventure time, and a temazcal sweat lodge. Healthy, gourmet meals – all local, fresh, and organic, will be serving our bodies in this incredible oasis nestled in the 12 acres of tropical jungle above the Pacific Ocean. (Did we mention a private, pristine beach? Or outdoor showers?!) Including tons of you time, all these offerings are simply opportunities to reconnect with your authentic self, fill yourself back up so you can find your flow again, and share those gifts and flow in service of this world. Expect to move, dance, cry, sweat, lounge, laugh and enjoy a stellar week of sisterhood at one of the most stunning locations in the world.

About the Instructors:

Erin Carney (RYT 500, CHHC) is devoted to illumination. What is it that sparks us awake? How do we expand both our boundaries and our interior edges? Her work revolves around cultivating a deeper intimacy within ourselves that reverberates back out into our connection with nature, with our families, our partners, and our communities. Steadfast with the human heart, Erin calls on your truth, and listens for your answer. Using movement, breath, space, sound and silence, Erin delivers you home. Her pre-professional training in ballet and her curiosity of the human cosmos blend discipline and whimsy in the pursuit of awakening and living our fullest life.

Erin graduated from Concordia University in Montreal with a degree in political philosophy and has completed over 500 hours of yoga teacher training, is a certified Reiki 2 practitioner and a holistic health coach. She has most recently been studying and integrating breath work and yoga nidra into her teachings. As a world traveler and lifelong student, Erin seeks ways to understand the classic texts and cutting-edge material to integrate and offer. She has led numerous workshops, co-facilitated teacher trainings, and led international yoga retreats, all with the aim of reestablishing a deeper connection within ourselves, facilitating our capacity to heal, to expand into ourselves, and to be of more service in the world. Erin is passionate about the potency of healing and aims to offer a portal into your own world of self-discovery.

Liz Andolong (RYT200, CRMT) discovered yoga in a small studio in 2006 amongst candlelight and sweat, leaving her mind peaceful and body challenged; thus beginning a 12 plus year love affair with yoga. Over the years, the practice has been the constant in her personal growth and journey, allowing her to cultivate a more authentic self that is grounded, joyful, and open.

Through the years, she’s explored many different styles of yoga, moving from a physical, vigorous vinyasa to a more deliberate and curative flow. Her background as a classically trained ballerina, coupled with honoring her body’s ever-changing journey, has cultivated a practice which is primarily breath and alignment-based. The last few years led Liz from yoga into discovering reiki – another healing modality she incorporates into her classes, helping students receive more ways to promote their own wellness and wellbeing.

She believes in creating a space for her students that makes yoga accessible to all: supporting and encouraging their own self discovery, healing, integrity, and self love. In honoring the lineage of her teachers (Pete Guinosso, Rebecca Rogers, Martin Scott, Jason Crandell) and honoring her own style, she incorporates curated playlists alongside proper alignment and deep breath work to help deepen students’ – beginner or advanced – experience.

She is grateful to offer a space that allows students to connect more deeply to themselves, to practice listening inwardly, with hopes that their understanding of self will connect them more authentically with others and the world.
