Feb 25 - Mar 3, 2023
This is Althea's 6th year returning to this serene slice of paradise in the hills of Sayulita.
The Annual Yoga In Paradise Retreat follows the definition of a true yoga retreat, with the emphasis on restoring you on all levels through the yoga practice, with twice-daily extended yoga sessions and guided and silent meditations designed with your personal needs in mind. The retreat is designed for those who want to experience the strength and healing benefits of a consistent hatha yoga and meditation practice.
Throughout the week, explore different Hatha yoga traditions, including gentle flow, Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, and Restorative Yoga. Spend quality and intentional time on filling your desire for inner nourishment, and still have plenty of down time for adventure and exploration. You'll have one entire "free day" mid-week! Fill your free time with your choice of activities: Haramara will happily arrange your favorite excursion, you can enjoy healing therapy, swim in the beautiful infinity pool, hike the mountainside or walk on the beach, explore the town of Sayulita and charming surrounding villages, or simply relax.
Come as you are. All levels are welcome.
You will return home rested, refreshed, and re-energized.
