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.

“Lauren is an amazing teacher! She is so knowledgeable about yoga and Ayurveda, and she shares this knowledge in such an understandable, relatable and generous way. Her warm personality and authenticity shows through in all her teachings. I challenge you to leave one of her classes without a huge smile on your face, it’s just not possible! Love X” ~H.D. 2018
“Lauren is the most amazing yoga teacher. The teacher I aspire to be. Visiting Tahiti and Lauren’s classes is on my bucket list. Novice or experienced at yoga Lauren will make you feel at ease. She has an amazing ability to know exactly what you need from your yoga class. I can not recommend her highly enough. Go to one of her classes and see for yourself, you will not be disappointed.” ~E.C. 2019
”I found Lauren to be such a warm hearted teacher who you felt really believed in the healing benefits of yoga and sharing in our stories as a united group. So I will leave you with your last words Lauren that have stayed with me 'You are beautiful just as you are'. It was lovely to meet you and wish you well on your little love island.” ~LMB 2019
“Self inquiry with you is one of the best things about the whole course and i think this is just made for you. Or you are made to do it you just always find the right words and seem to know what we need. I have not met many people who can make a whole group of people feel so protected and safe to talk about very personal and emotional topics. But you definitely can and it was so great to have you as our circle-mama - J.b.”
“So grateful for your persistence in getting me to class today! AND for everything you are! Bearing that gorgeous soul and hugging from the inside out! I will always hear your words in time of self care, your music when I'm happy and when I'm low, and always in times when I need a lil more strength to push through that which does not serve me. Intensely grateful for you! and whatever brought you to Bali” -c.c.
