“Shake the Dust” Yoga & Energy Awareness Retreat

From April 04 to 11, 2020

Unplug to recharge, step away to dive in…

Are you curious about yoga? Do you enjoy exploring beautiful surroundings, eating nourishing food, and hanging out with uplifting, joy-filled individuals? If the answer is YES (or at least a hard maybe) to any of these questions this retreat is for you! Join us as we “Shake the Dust” so to speak through self-exploration and expansion through physical asana, meditation, and energy work in the lush jungle surroundings of Puerto Vallarta. We will work through creative, but approachable, chakra focused yoga sequencing meant to invigorate and restore, bringing balance to the mind, body, and spirit. All levels and ages welcome! In addition to yoga, you will have the opportunity to learn more about Reiki, a natural hands-on healing technique using “universal life force energy,” the energy that is flowing abundantly around and within all living things. Receive level one attunement which awakens you to the Reiki energy flow. Reiki level one is meant to heal on the physical level. At this stage, Reiki is used as a self -healing technique and as a means of deepening your own energetic awareness. Collectively we will move, feel, breath, and bond, enjoying all of the beauty that connection offers, with plenty of space and free time for you to simply be with “you.” 

* Early bird pricing listed below is valid until December 31st, 2019. All that’s required to reserve your spot is a $500 deposit.

About the teacher

“Shake the Dust” Yoga & Energy Awareness Retreat

Doug Milliron

E-RYT 500 Yoga Instructor

Storytelling ‘kaleides’ with organic movement creating a deeply connected experience. Doug has been creating stories all of his life; whether it be on stage, behind the camera, in the studio, or at his laptop. It is the novels we all house, the interesting lives each of us leads, that sits at the heart of why he loves to teach. Seeing people learn to trust enough to share who they are, to tell their tales without worry, and to care enough to listen wholly to another’s prose - to share in moments like those is always a humbling experience. Usually starting class with a story, poem, or anecdote, Doug threads together body, movement, intention, and thought into a tapestry of FUN. It is his desire that you leave his class more grounded and elated, loving you and your blessings.

Nikki McFadden

E-RYT 500 Yoga Instructor

Strength and Flexibility ‘kaleide’ creating Grace. Nikki is graceful: a beautiful balance of meditation, laughter, tears, and heart. Nikki joyfully loves to share her deeply thoughtful practice with others. With an extensive training background in competitive gymnastics and professional dance, Nikki’s love of motion, curiosity about the human body, and desire to heal led her straight into the arms of yoga, where she first experienced real connection. Yoga, with its emphasis on breath and mindfulness, brought equilibrium across the entire spectrum of her life.

Nikki guides students through a physical practice that pushes beyond one’s body and drives into the deeper metaphysical properties we all possess. The strength cultivated in her classes helps one to grow his/her asana practice, but that same strength can be translated directly into all aspects of life. Inspired by life, Nikki believes that yoga is much more than a collection of shapes created by the body. Genuine yoga practice is one that transcends the confines of a mat or studio. True yoga is found in how we see ourselves, how we interact with others, and how we view the world. It is a lifestyle and a lifelong practice.

Shannon Demorest

Reiki Healer

A community builder rooted to others through energy, Shannon has spent the better part of her last 7 years working in the fitness, health, and wellness industry. Seeing lives change, not only as a result of the hard work put in but in large part because the people that surround and support one another, is what drives Shannon.

The beauty of the community lies in the transference of energy. Shannon believes that leading a healthy life is much more than just having a fit body. A healthy lifestyle truly thrives when your passions ‘kaleide’ with a tribe of like-minded hearts. Each individual adds his/her unique energy and joy, bringing everyone a little closer. Shannon is a certified Reiki master that specializes in sharing the benefits of Reiki healing in an approachable and fun way.

A DAY IN YOUR YOGA RETREAT

We’ll begin our days together in quiet meditation, followed by an invigorating, chakra focused vinyasa flow class to “Shake the Dust.” After getting your body moving and your mind centered, we’ll enjoy a yummy breakfast as a group. Enjoy a few hours of free time before and after lunch to do you. Relax by the pool, pamper yourself with a spa treatment, schedule a Reiki session, play at the beach, explore an optional excursion, or simply kick it in your room...the choice is all yours. We will regroup most evenings for light flow or yin class, followed by an amazing meal filled with conversation and connection. A detailed itinerary will be sent out closer to date. Everything we put on the itinerary is optional. This is, after all, YOUR retreat. Savor every beautiful moment.
