PAST RETREATS – 2017

Pyrenees, France 2018

Pyrenean Yoga Retreat
Pyrénées, France – Sep. 9-14, 2018
$2200



The practice of yoga and meditation go far beyond moving your body into shapes, let alone actively trying quiet the mind. It’s about living your yoga, being present, and observing the “Self” as we move through this world. Hiking through the Pyrénées is the perfect place to put these practices into action. Monitoring your breath, the surface that’s ahead, the feel of the earth beneath your feet, and the ambience of the mountains requires you to drop into nature as if you’re being re-birthed into this earth. Lisa Knaffla and Jade Skinner invite you to explore 5 days of reconnecting to beautiful Mother Earth through heart centered meditations, intuitive yoga practices, mountain air pranayama, self-reflection, hiking in the beautiful Pyrénées of France, communal meals, journaling and more. Retreat is $2200 with a non- refundable deposit of $500 due July 5, 2018. Remaining balance is due August 9, 2018. We have 10 spaces open to anyone who wants to immerse themselves in the practice of living your yoga. Om, shanti

Crete, Greece 2017

Ashtanga Yoga-Meditation & Hiking Retreat – Crete, Greece

September 16 – 23, 2017
$2200 (non-refundable deposit due by July 15, 2017)

We’re off for 7 days of trekking in Crete, walking through this ancient landscape and swimming in the warm waters of the eastern Mediterranean Sea. Our well-being is assured – each day we enjoy the locally grown simple and healthy Cretan food – and are inspired to slow down by the way of life here. Many of the villages we visit for the last week of the trek are accessible only by foot or boat, nicely removing us from our everyday world but still allowing our bags to be transported by boat and us the luxury of walking with day packs. Crete’s cultural treasures give us an insight into the Minoan, Roman, Persian, Greek, and Venetian civilizations who have all left traces here. The wisdom of the 3000-year-old olive trees will seep into our subconscious as we walk!

  • Coastal walking with an amazing 2000m summit and the famous Samariah gorge. • Daily yoga and meditation practice with Jade Skinner
  • Walk along the paths of ancient Mediterranean civilizations
  • Enjoy the famous healthy, varied and delicious Cretan diet
  • Discover ancient fishing villages and shepherding traditions • Swim in the turquoise and azure blue waters
  • Boat or walking only access from Agia Roumeli (Day 7)
  • Your bags transported by boat

*Transportation to Crete, Greece and accommodations outside of retreat are not included in the package.

*More details TBA later. Please fill out the registration form to reserve your place on the retreat.
