Balancing Strength with Grace
~ Retreat to Mexico’s Pacific with Michelle Cordero
Saturday February 13th to Friday February 19th 2016
With Michelle Cordero, MFA, E-RYT 500, RPYT
Take Your Yoga Practice to the next level with Michelle! Join us on a deserted beach just outside of Zihuatanejo, Mexico for a 6 night Yoga Retreat!
Daily deep flow classes will combine vinyasa flow, Forrest techniques, core strength and breath awareness to help students develop greater strength, flexibility and inner awareness. Expect the morning practices to be dynamic, mindful and challenging. In the late afternoon, we will have an array of practices designed to bring ease into the body and calm the mind. These afternoon practices will be slower and will include pranayama (breathwork) as well as meditation. A few afternoons will feature special topics like: inversions, chakras & the energetic body and Michelle’s unique creation Sensual Yoga.
Our Retreat Center is located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, nestled between the drama and beauty of the Sierra Madres and the sparkling waters of the Pacific Ocean, this unique location’s proximity to natural wonders provides easy access to a host of activities – from swimming to hiking to scuba diving to whale and bird watching, to horseback riding and so much more!
Enjoy the luxury of an environmentally-conscious resort, with EcoLuxury accommodations each with a beachfront view and just steps away from the breath-taking blue ocean!
Fall asleep and awaken to the sound of the waves, here you will truly be one with The Elements!
In addition to twice daily Yoga with Michelle, we will also enjoy exquisite farm to table meals, and the opportunity to become immersed in nature. Optional activities also include volunteering
in the turtle sanctuary and giving back to the local community if that is something that calls to you!
Whales and Dolphins are known to frequent this private beach in February, we will also have the opportunity to partake in baby turtle releases!
This well rounded retreat will balance strength building and relaxation and connection to nature. You will leave feeling stronger and rejuvenated, with a home practice tailored for you.
Our retreat center is small and intimate, space is limited and will likely sell fast! Your $500 Non-Refundable “Placeholder” deposit will ensure your spot!
Michelle has spent the last twenty years exploring several styles of Hatha Yoga in depth: Ashtanga, Jivamukti, Yogaworks, Vinyasa Flow and Anusara. In 2002 she met Ana Forrest and was inspired by her style enough to fulfill the rigorous requirements to become a Certified Forrest Yoga Teacher. A teacher’s teacher, Michelle recently completed a month as Ana Forrest’s Lead Assistant for an intensive 200 hr teacher training; and she is finishing her third year of co-facilitating a local teacher training. Tremendously skilled at tailoring the practice to meet the needs of each individual student, Michelle will ask you to challenge yourself safely. You will learn to listen to your body and work with the breath in order to find deeper levels of flexibility and strength that may surprise you. Michelle’s vibrant personality and sense of humor add a dash of fun and playfulness into the mix..
