An All Yoga Retreat to ReNEW YOU

This is a chance to renew yourself and plant the seed for health and happiness through your practice of mindfulness with yoga or meditation, healthy eating and activity, growing positivity and radiance!

Join Christina Rufin and Katherine Phipps from All Yoga NYC on this refreshing 6 day yoga and meditation retreat to renew yourself. Both teachers offer Vinyasa yoga classes while Christina will add Yin yoga to the afternoon classes and Katherine will bring her harmonium for chanting and opening our hearts together after meditation.

Our purpose of this retreat is to practice yoga and mediation, add chanting, mantra and visualization to uncover a renewed version of ourselves with the support of the teachers and the group as well in chosen silent times.

There will be 2 meditation and yoga classes a day and a mid-afternoon workshop on a given theme for specific renewal of self.

There will still be plenty of free time to enjoy swimming, walking on the beach and fitness at the gym. The many other activities such as kite surfing, flying trapeze, aerial yoga and massage services are available but not included in your retreat package.

All 3 included meals of breakfast, lunch and dinner will be offered by the farm to table restaurant with the emphasis on a healthy balanced diet to aid in our physical and mental state.

In addition we will add a half day experience to visit the organic farm where you can learn about aquaponics and sustainable agriculture. Taino Organic Farm grows a variety of fruit, vegetables and super foods which you’ll be able to taste fresh off the trees. Then we are heading with our tubes to the beautiful river Yasica for a blissful river float followed by a farm fresh meal.
