Vinyasa Yoga with Katie
Our morning vinyasa yoga classes will be guided by Katie, who has been a yoga teacher for six and a half years.
Katie's classes are known for being grounded, mindful, challenging (though accessible to beginners), flowing and have a sincere focus on using the yoga practice and yoga principles to learn to care for yourself and bring yourself in closer alignment with your true nature.
On retreat in Mexico, you can expect our yoga classes to hold a particular magic - between longer class times, no overlapping studio classes, the inspiration of the setting overlooking the ocean, and the intimacy of a group of people practicing everyday together, they really are something special and will impact you differently than your classes at home.
"Katie’s yoga classes are wonderfully thoughtful and fun. Her sequencing is intentional and engaging, while giving students the space to modify when needed. She always has an incitement message for her students to think about through class, which always resonates with me. I feel more calm, stretched out, energized and more powerful (mentally and physically) after her classes, which is exactly what I want from a yoga class!"
"Without a doubt I would recommend Katie to friends, colleagues and especially my family. If I won the lottery, I would share Katie’s wisdom with the world, so those I love could grow in the light of Katie’s wisdom”
"Thank you for being a vital part of my morning routine. You create the perfect class by balancing breathing and movement. Listening to your voice grounds me and allows me to relax as I lay on my mat leaving me with a sensation of ease and calmness."
Body Science Sessions with Shaun
Our afternoon/evening movement sessions will be expertly guided by Shaun, who has been a committed movement practitioner, trainer, and teacher for decades.
As any movement enthusiast knows, body pain and injury are a part of life. Shaun will guide you through Body Science Sessions, in which he will teach recovery strategies, myofascial techniques, and self-care approaches to help you feel grounded and strong in your body.
These sessions will help you uncover the linkages between yoga, movement arts, corrective exercise, and energy work to broaden the landscape of your physical and mental practices.
You will leave this retreat with practical and helpful tools for injury prevention, pain management, and self-care beyond your yoga practice.
“Shaun knows more about health and fitness than anyone I’ve ever met. As far as recommendations go, I’ve never been able to say someone saved my life, which is the case with Shaun. I seriously owe this guy everything, I can’t recommend him enough”.
"Shaun is a remarkable person and a truly unique trainer. His combination of knowledge, focus, positivity, compassion, and ability to empower others makes him not only a powerful teacher but also a delightful human being. I have known Shaun for over 10 years, and consider him a dear friend and great inspiration."
"I am highly recommending Shaun, not only as a trainer, also as a guide – someone who brings his eclectic athletic background to each of his clients – customizing and individualizing as needed, depending on the athletes individual goals. Finding immense strength inside and out as I pursue biggest triathlon challenges to date. Thank you Shaun!"
