Marsha Nieland Women Retreat
Teacher: Marsha Nieland
Come share in an extraordinary experience. This retreat is more than a vacation. It is part travel adventure, part wellness retreat, and part good karma.
You will leave this retreat knowing you have made a difference in someone-s life while still nourishing your own body, mind and spirit. Let Marsha guide you on an inner journey of heart-opening, playfulness, expansion and delight with the rich practices of Anusara Yoga, pranayama and meditation. All levels of students are welcome.
Xinalani Retreat, is a place that is dedicated to establishing a sustainable bond with the local people and the ecological home the center now inhabits. We will have the opportunity to interact with this community through Karma Yoga, or seva (selfless service), to remind ourselves that we can practice as though our life is the very act of service itself.
We will be providing the local school with books to build a library for their children and enjoy a celebration party with the students.
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.- Gandhi
The daily schedule includes morning and sunset yoga and plenty of time for relaxation, exploration or a soothing jungle spa treatment. A mid week free day will allow you to enjoy an exciting adventure tour, whale watching, surfing or cooking lessons.
