Paragate – Going beyond | Yoga with Jennifer Isaacson

Feb 10 – 18, 2024

SATURDAY A lush road leads you to paradise.  Greeted with snacks and a cold drink, you take in the vast beauty of this place.  A dip in the saltwater pool makes it real. Flower lined trails lead to the open air dining room. A three course dinner and a sunset. White linens in the middle of the jungle.  This truly is paradise

SUNDAY Air warm on your skin.  Melodies from the birds backed by the rhythm of the ocean.  You open your eyes and remember where you are.  The yoga challenges and supports you in all the right ways.  Nap and pool and nap and pool. Over dinner there’s lots of laughter and a few sunburns. These people are *nice*

MONDAY Hot shower, coffee, and you’re off to class. You’re finding the rhythm of this place. You’re sore in the best way. Massage? Yes please

TUESDAY Rising and setting with the sun. Watching birds soar. Hearing the tide roll in. Meditation is starting to come with ease.  Time for quiet.  Time for you.  It’s working

WEDNESDAY The path easy under your feet. The lushness of this land calms your mind. Long slow poses feel like a dream.  Strength and grace are following you off the mat.  You can’t remember ever feeling this way

THURSDAY You forget about your phone. Emails. The sun tells the time and the stars give you direction.  A moonlit dip in the saltwater pool before bed washes away your tension.  This is how it’s supposed to be

FRIDAY  Poolside planning your next escape.  These connections are real.  You can’t believe you’ve made new friends in this short time away. This part matters.  It’s the beginning of a new chapter

SATURDAY You don’t want to leave. Yoga settles these feelings. Home won’t be the same because you’re not the same. Viva La Mexico!
