SOCHA Yoga Retreat & Yoga Sculpt Intensive

SOCHA Yoga Retreat & Yoga Sculpt Intensive

From April 06 to 13, 2019

Immerse yourself in an 8 day/7 Night Yoga Eco-Retreat with the additional bonus of a Yoga Sculpt Training Intensive with one of LA’s Top Yoga Sculpt Teachers, Cornelius Jones. This will be an open level experience, meaning Yoga practitioners of all levels are welcome. From novice to advance. Non-advanced yogis will gain a wealth of information to start you on your yoga journey, and advanced yogis will brush up on skills already learned while being introduced to new information.   We practice-we learn to get better, that’s the only way we grow. Just because you feel you may not be good, does not mean DO NOT TRY. We make an effort to learn what we don’t know or may not have been exposed to. Anything is possible when you take the limits off of your thinking and start saying IT IS POSSIBLE, I CAN, I WILL, I AM.  GROW WITH THE CHANGE OR REMAIN THE SAME.  In addition to the Yoga Sculpt Intensive, rest and relax at Xinalani with healthy gourmet vegetarian and non-vegetarian foods inspired by delicious traditional Mexican recipes, prepared daily (breakfast, lunch, & dinner) by the Xinalani staff. Indulge daily, during free time, and learn more about the eco-sustainable community of Quimixto and maybe venture through the lush and plush jungle to experience the exquisite waterfall nearby.  Take a walking hike to neighboring eco-friendly village Las Animas, or take a riverboat for shopping in the village of Yelapa. Go for afternoon excursion, by boat, and explore the culture of Puerto Vallarta Old Town. At your leisure indulge in on-site activities such as kayaking, snorkeling, the temazcal & salsa dance lessons or pamper yourself with spa treatments and/or massage services. You will also love the chic and tranquil lounge bar, overlooking the ocean, a perfect place to chill with music, read a book, meet new people, wake up with a cappuccino, rehydrate with fresh coconut water, or unwind with a glass of wine, spirits, or a lovely margarita, this oceanfront palapa, with its own private beach, is a gem and you’ll love it.  

By day 8 you will feel rested, revived, & accomplished.  You will have an abundance of information and a stronger foundation that you can bring back to your home yoga practice.  For my beginner yogis, you will not only feel stronger, more fit, and empowered, you will also leave feeling encouraged and confident stepping into any yoga class back home. As well as, emotionally and physically confident, stepping back into your daily lives. THIS IS AN INVESTMENT IN YOU. This is not only Vacation time but Personal Growth time.  Find a deep sense of peace and be in tune with your better self. Additionally, you will a receive a certificate of having completed 30 hours in yoga sculpt with Cornelius Jones E-RYT200 and YACEP.   Your certification credentials should allow you to teach Yoga Sculpt wherever it is offered in your community.
