Tahiti Ayurveda & Yoga Retreat : April 8-13 2019
Relax, restore, and rejuvenate on the breathtaking islands of French Polynesia. This 6-day, 5-night retreat will focus on Ayurveda and Yoga. Ayurveda is an ancient, holistic, whole body science from India, focusing on self healing. Each morning rise with the sun and enjoy an invigorating Ayurvedic based yoga practice combining vinyasa flow, hatha, and ashtanga. Spend your day soaking up the sun, snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, exploring the island by bike, or relaxing. Group afternoon activities will include 2 Ayurveda workshops, a tour of the island, an outing to see traditional Tahitian dance, snorkeling and of course some free time! In the evening, wind down with a gentle restorative practice, combining yoga nidra, guided meditation, yin and restorative yoga. Ideas and concepts of Ayurveda will be explained throughout the week in an easy to use way. Yoga teachers will receive 30 hours of Continuing Education with Yoga Alliance in the area of Ayurveda. At the end of the week, you will walk away feeling more rejuvenated in the mind, body and spirit and the knowledge to maintain this in your daily life.
