Sunday, April 23 - Saturday, April 29, 2023
Come join us to celebrate who you are, how you are - right here in this moment. Too often in our lives we wait for the perfect moment or a goal to celebrate ourselves. Yoga teaches us to appreciate where we are right now.
Expect to flow through some fun yoga flows, but even more importantly, to delve in yogic philosophies you can practice, and take home with you.
This amazing place and people provide all that you need to get present, to take time for yourself. And the raw nature of the ocean gets you present to the power and beauty of nature. Through these you might even find yourself in deeper connection to other humans. I can attest that the last retreat I led to this place was filled with the above, a lot of laughter and a lot of life changing moments - and some new lifelong friendships.
Three balanced healthy meals a day with a chance to enjoy the wonderful company over the group dinners.
Refine and discover new skills with twice daily yoga asana classes. Get present with group meditations
Marvel at the beauty of nature
Experience the ocean and the jungle on your own, and as part of the group with excursions!

Meet Your Host
ERYT500 Seattle WA
Ashish grew up in India in an environment where the scriptures and the Bhagavad Gita were very much part of life.
After spending 16 years as an engineer in the computer and video game industry, he decided to take a break and teach yoga. The deeper he dove in, the more he was convinced this is what he wanted to do. Yoga had changed his approach to life, opening a new pathway to an almost constantly lived joy.
He now wants to bring it to others.
Ashish teaches with a smile and brings his fun personality to his teaching, just like his own practice. He weaves in yogic philosophy while leading a challenging, but not too serious asana practice.
