A yoga retreat is a time to take a step out of your daily life and a step into your self. With life becoming faster and faster, more stimulus, shorter wait times, accessible international travel, our lives can often take on a rhythm of their own which leaves us feeling like we are living in automatic. Retreat is staking out space to care for yourself on the deepest level. Each Brazil Yoga Retreat experience offers a balance of intense yoga practice, healthy, delicious food, nourishing physical exploration of the landscape and deep rest, not to mention excellent company!

Brazil is a unique and conducive retreat spot, as the rhythm has a naturally slower cadence. The rainforest is prolific, exuberant and a great model for the thriving life force that we seek to cultivate inside ourselves. Brazilians relate from the heart and treasure family and leisure time.  You can feel the joy in relating in the simplest of interactions whether buying a fresh coconut or renting a beach umbrella.  Brazilians value playful interactions and even treasure “preguiça” or laziness. We relax more deeply in the presence of others who know how to relax!

The power of Shakti, or feminine life force, is palpable in the Atlantic rainforest.  I had my own feminine awakening amidst the Atlantic rainforest and have found it to be especially healing for high-powered achieving women looking to change their relationship to their health, their bodies, relationships and motherhood.
