OUR PROGRAM


 

 

Wake up in a tropical paradise to daily yoga practices, meditation, mindfulness workshops, and holistic meals. The focus of our program is to provide the environment, guidance, and tools to empower you to thrive in your life, both on and off the mat. 

We will lead purposefully themed and sequenced morning yoga practices with breathing techniques and meditation. Mindful Living workshops will help you connect more deeply with yourself and offer you tools to take your yoga practice off the mat and into your life.  There will plenty of time to explore the natural beauty of our surroundings alongside inspiring conversations, infinity pool lounging, and island adventures.
