Ayurvedic wisdom points us to nourishing the nervous system, particularly in the fall season. In this experiential workshop, we delve into rich and mindful yoga practices to stabilize and nurture ourselves. Morning yoga is a slow flowing practice using Ayurvedic principles to balance the mind-body. We sequentially move through stability, trust and expansion. Evening yoga is a deeply relaxing practice using: restorative yoga, yin yoga, pranayama and mindfulness of the senses. The afternoons are free to delight in the beauty and benevolence of Breitenbush. This holistic approach to balancing the nervous system cultivates stability, presence and vital connection.

Appropriate for those with at least six months of yoga experience.

Yoga & Meditation Retreat at Mar de Jade

March 9th-16th, 2019
Chacala, Mexico

In this nourishing retreat, we will cultivate mindfulness, vitality and ease through yoga, meditation, pranayama and Ayurvedic principles. The morning session will integrate guided meditation with a mindful flowing asana practice. In the early evening we will practice “yoga bliss” a rejuvenation practice that draws from restorative yoga, yin yoga and yogic breathing practices. The afternoons will be free to swim and relax, receive healing spa treatments or partake in optional daily excursions such as: a Temezcal sweat ceremony, hike to a secluded beach with caves, pre-Hispanic petroglyph trip, bird-watching, whale watching and a traditional Mexican market.

Mar de Jade is along Mexico’s Tropical Pacific Coast, about 90 min. north of Puerto Vallarta in the small fishing village of Chacala.  This beautiful retreat center has a 17-acre organic farm, where they source much of the food for the three delicious and nutritious meals per day, served buffet style, in the breezy open-air dining terrace overlooking Chacala bay. All food served at Mar de Jade is prepared with great care, attention and love.
