Our retreats aim to remind people how wonderful it feels to play, to laugh, and to share joy. We are wired by evolution to PLAY. Allowing ourselves to PLAY not only decreases stress, improves brain function, and boosts creativity; PLAY also helps balance our mood, cope with everyday life decisions, and frees our spirit to blossom with more passion in our everyday observations. Especially as an adult, PLAY boosts our immune system and improves our resistance to disease.
Beyond Yoga & Meditation, we focus on connection, trust, communication and play. During our week, we will cover many different classes, giving our participants a chance to explore all of these things. For example, AcroYoga teaches us how to trust in a partner to support us, to connect to that person physically and feel safe and even empowered. It teaches us how to communicate effectively both verbally and non-verbally. The profound connections that develop through AcroYoga are incredible. We love to offer this kind of experience for our students. Our other classes include Aerial Yoga, Laughter Yoga, Movement & Dance, Budokon, Slacklining, and Thai massage. All of these classes are designed to introduce our students to a wide range of play. Students of any age or experience level can come to our retreat and be inspired and empowered by these offerings. All of our classes during the week are optional, so students and pick and choose which classes they are intrigued to try.
We will be spending the week at The Bodhi Tree, a beautiful, luxury, eco-resort on the Pacific cost. It is nestled in the foothills of Nosara, and just a short walk to pristine beaches and world class surfing. Wake up with the howler monkeys, meditate beside peaceful streams and enjoy the constant symphony of the jungle all around.
Bodhi Tree has exquisite accommodations with modern Balinese furnishings, beautifully designed bathrooms, high ceilings and luxurious bedding.
