This is the Retreat for You

A yoga retreat is a powerful journey to discover your internal source of deep peace, balance and joy. Just as most yoga teachers make sure to reduce distractions in yoga classes so that students can focus on their practice, I know that it can be daunting to navigate all the details of traveling to another country. No need to worry. I will take care of all of the in-country arrangements to ensure that you have a smooth journey.

With many years of experience traveling and living in Latin America, Europe, Asia, and the U.S., I am skilled at providing a worry-free, distraction-free retreat. I will also be glad to help you as you prepare for the trip and during your stay. I have crafted a fulfilling, enriching and rewarding experience for you, and I will ensure that you will get the most out of your retreat.
