Our first stop will be in Mexico City where we will explore the pyramids of Teotihuacan, climb into the crater of Nevado de Toluca (one of Mexico’s volcanoes) and experience the Day of the Dead.
Then we’ll hop a plane to continue our immersion into the culture , fresh food, relaxation and EMpowerment Vinyasa Yoga in the sun! …on the south pacific coast of Mexico where it is laid back and non-commercialized. Where we wake up with the world and give back to the community by contributing to the sustainability of this little paradise’s economy and helping to preserve the natural ecological wonders native to this part of the world.
Our week long retreat will include empowerment yoga practice, meditation beach walks, wonderful breakfasts of fresh juices, fruits, yogurt, and traditional Mexican fare. Day excursions are available to go horseback riding, release endangered turtles, surf, visit the bird sanctuaries or iguana and crocodile habitats, or check out the markets and local shops, experience the heat of a traditional temezcal or the natural phenomenon of one of the world’s best bioluminescence and natural waterfalls. Friends and family may also decide to relax poolside at La Quinta Lili or Villa Lili, or hit up the beach.
Each evening we will transition with a restorative EMpowerment Vinyasa Yoga practice which may be a piece of your adventure, leaving room for all to venture out for dinner, enjoy fabulous drinks, and/or relax and enjoy and soak up the power of their experience however that shows up in the moment. Family, kids and friends are all welcome!!!
Villa/Quinta Lili received Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence in May of 2011. This hidden paradise totes everything from master suites with private Jacuzzis and sea views, wi-fi, cable tv, large swimming pools, to rustic Mexican, serene simplicity, and everything in between. And, both are walking distance to the beach. Local staff and owner, Adelina, create a comfort that make you feel as though it were your home. It is an experience one should not miss!
All Empowerment vinyasa flows, workshops, and trainings will be led by Blanca and Jaci. This Re.Treat is aimed at helping every student discover stillness, their truth, and his/her own strength and potential, on and off the mat, through self-awareness, trust, and intuition. This EMVY Re.Treat will give you the time, space and opportunity to deepen your practice, awaken your intentions, and increase your mental, physical, and spiritual strength and health. Learn how to let go, open your heart, and shed your limitations.
Ultimately, the only limitations we have are those which we deliberately choose to impose upon ourselves. So come let go of your expectations and find your truth by challenging yourself to practice and to live breath to breath, moment to moment…in beautiful Mexico!
Find yourself, find your practice.

Inversions & Arm Balance Workshop
Integration into your classroom practice
Whether you have just learned to play with arm balances and inversions or have been flying for years, the question often becomes: when do I get to use them in my classroom practice? Because not all variations and modifications can be queued for each pose and because each pose is afforded a limited number of breath cycles, it is difficult to figure out when to implement all these fun and challenging poses.
Jaci & Co. will be leading an intro recap toarm balances & inversions and extended flow to demonstrate when and where each pose can be integrated into the flow and to provide ample opportunity for students to practice coming in and out of each pose in classroom conditions. This includes jumping into and out of crow and more. Time and attention will be spent getting into and out of poses, holding poses, and transitioning back into the class flow. So come play with arm balances and inversions and find your new flow.
Weekends only | all levels
