Intermediate/ Advanced Asana Retreat w/ Justicia
October 11-14, 2019
Registration is fully inclusive for four days and three nights at The Himalayan Institute in Hornsdale, PA (about a 3 hour, 45 minute drive from Philly). The weekend includes six extended practice sessions, three meals a day, and ample free time to hike, read, connect with friends, or simply relax!
During this retreat, we’ll explore the full range of asana together, moving through the sequences in a supportive, fun way as a community. Each of the retreat’s extended asana sessions will move towards challenging poses with reverence and expert instruction from Justicia, and a conversation shared among all. Expect strong practice and deep laughter.
Students are recommended to be able to push up to urdhva dhanurasana (full wheel) with straight arms, balance headstand in the middle of the room and be able to kick up to handstand at the wall unassisted. This retreat is not intended for anyone with active injuries or illness. If you don’t meet the prerequisites, but you know how to honor your boundaries, please come (for example, you need the wall for headstand). If you’re simply intimidated, please check in! This weekend will be accessible to all experienced yogis who know how to back off and play their edges with deep respect.
Pricing: $595 for shared accommodations. Single rooms may be available for an extra fee; ask early for availability!
Yoga Retreat to Mexico w/ Justicia
March 14-21, 2020
Spend a week in paradise with Justicia at the exquisite Xinalani retreat center near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico! Situated within lush jungle surroundings on a pristine, private beach, this is the perfect winter getaway. Registration is fully inclusive for eight days and seven nights at Xinalani Eco-Resort, including three meals a day, and twice daily yoga with Justicia.
Mornings will begin with an upbeat, all-levels yoga practice, followed by breakfast at the Lodge. Your days are yours to spend as you wish: hanging at the local beach, hiking, kayaking, sailing, taking a day tour, receiving a massage or spa treatment, or simply reclining at the Xinalani pool. Justicia traveled to Puerto Vallarta and hand-picked this lodge; it is a true gem, in one of the most gorgeous and pristine spots of the Pacific Coast of Mexico!
Our days will wind down with an evening yoga practice, followed by dinner together where we can share our day’s adventures in paradise! All you need to do is secure your own international air travel (flight to Puerto Vallarta, PVR) and put your deposit down (a nonrefundable $500 will hold your space). Book with a yoga buddy and you can room together!
The retreat is an open levels yoga experience suitable for experienced practitioners and beginners alike. Variations will be offered for all, and you may do as much or as little yoga as you like!
