Relax 

Wake to the sounds of macaws flying above and feel empowered to join us for a sunrise meditation and yoga on the beach. This retreat is about you reclaiming you, so you choose whether you want to meditate, participate in the morning yoga practice or sleep in longer. 

Following the yoga, we will invite you to join us on a nature walk with a local who will guide you through the rainforest on an insightful hike to the waterfalls near Serenity By the Sea. Once you reach the waterfalls, you'll have time to swim and enjoy a mid-day picnic. 

All participants are invited to our Welcome Dinner at the Rancho at 6 pm.

day 03

Refocus

Today you'll rediscover you. Begin your day increasing your body awareness so you can relieve stress, reduce muscle tension, strain, and inflammation, while you sharpen your attention and concentration during our daily morning yoga practice. 

 

Following yoga, we invite you to relax or restore your natural energy levels through group mediations that focus on breathing, your past and future you—your now. Our and self awareness activities will help you connect to your inner self and learn how to clear your mind to be open to your true self.

Today, as we continue to focus on relaxing and restoring your natural energy levels, our massage therapist will be on site. (Please let your hosts know whether you want a massage so we can schedule your reservation. Additional costs apply.)

On this No Agenda Day, we will spend the day playing with complete abandon from all things "adult." We invite you to grab one of the bikes and go riding in the neighborhood. Or blow up a beach ball and play in the pool, or head to the beach and build a sand castle and get sand in your hair. Your key focus: laugh!
