Every morning we will sweat, stretch, meditate and connect with our own inner-spark. We will hike in the jungle, relax in hidden hammocks hanging in the gardens, climb sacred waterfalls and swim in the warm Pacific.
Sunset yoga on the beach or at our pagoda is the perfect way to get centered. We will restore, repair and revitalize in this daily practice. Let all the stretching, deep breathing, foam rolling, movement meditation and relaxing to the sounds of monkeys, birds and crickets awaken something in you that has been asleep for a while.
