Alchemy of Joy: The Subtlety of Transformation

From April 04 to 11, 2020

Alchemy of Joy – Join us on our 2nd annual yoga retreat to Xinalani.

Alchemy (noun): a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination.

The intrigue of alchemy is that it transforms something of seemingly little value into gold or silver. Happiness, contentment, peace, and joy are the gold of the soul. The Alchemy of Joy Retreat invites you to step into the subtlety and magic of transformation in a way to transcend current states of being and step into joy. Without recognizing pain, loss, and disappointment, joy alludes us. Our thoughts are powerful and so we have the power to achieve the ultimate desire of inner content and joy. Spend 8 days and 7 nights with Morgan and Casandra to celebrate life, live in the present moment, and subtly transform your state of being.

Spend days practicing progressive and transformative asana, eating healthy and delicious food, lounging on the beach, and exploring the sights of Puerto Vallarta. You will have the chance for self-reflection and nurturing your spirit. laughter and camaraderie with friends, and most importantly time to recharge.

About the teacher

Alchemy of Joy: The Subtlety of Transformation

Morgan Mazza

E-RYT 500

Morgan is passionate about creating a space where students can cultivate personal power through the challenge of asana. She believes in asana as a physical vehicle for the transformation of mind and spirit. Morgan uses dynamic and thought-provoking alignment-based classes (both flow and form) to draw attention to habits and tendencies in a self-discovery process. Student empowerment surfaces through the cultivation of this awareness.  In carefully crafted classes, students are guided into challenging physical postures but asked to journey inward to look at their own reactions, tap into their strength, and become present. Among the training she has attended, the most notable was with Christina Sell.

Morgan credits Christina for her shift to clearer and more targeted teachings, both on and off the mat.  She completed the 300hr Alchemy of Flow and Form Advanced Teacher Training Program at the San Marcos School of Yoga with Christina Sell and Gioconda Parker. Morgan is the owner of Surya Yoga in El Paso, TX where she loves teaching classes to her dedicated community of yogis.  She is also humbled to be the lead teacher of both the Surya Yoga 200 Hour Teacher Training, as well as the 300 Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training. https://www.instagram.com/suryayogastudio/

Casandra Salas-Porras

Yoga Instructor

Casandra is Yoga practice began in 2001. Since then it’s been a wild ride. Learning what Yoga truly is and what it is not. Learning and unlearning things on and off the mat. She has completed many Yoga Teacher Training, all varying in styles and teachers. Amongst some of these are three Teacher Training at Radiantly Alive in Bali Indonesia, a Yin Training with Sebastian Pucelle & Murielle Burellier and an Ashtanga Training with the legendary Tim Miller. She’s also submerged herself in deep introspective silence and meditation during a 12 day Vipassana in India. Meditation is an important part of her life.

In her personal practice and while teaching, although always focused on alignment and Pranayama, she says “All of that can go to waste if we don’t surrender and allow vulnerability to crack open. We may be the most dedicated Yogi and if we don’t take a look at what’s going on inside of us, well a pose will forever remain just a pose. Now, if you do the asana AND look within, well, there the magic will rise.” Always giving you the map to take the road back to your true self; showing you that you’ve got the tools within you. Reminding you that the bitter and the sweet are both equally needed in life. Casandra teaches Yoga from the heart.
