Local Weekend Yoga Retreat June 9-11th!!!


Transform from Amazing to “OHM”azing!!!!  Connect to the fire within

Everyone need a little “me” time, where you can escape the day-to-day and restore the body and mind.  Yoga has long been a practice of choice to help find clarity, calm and the ability to focus on your inner self.

Join us for a local weekend retreat located on property overlooking the Oso Bay. Meditate with the sound of gently swaying palm trees, the natural sounds of the bay and watch as exotic birds fly by. There is a wild bird refuge only steps away. This retreat will focus on personal growth and transformation.

Study with the teacher training students as they explore the many facets of yoga. Asana classes will include Chakra opening, candlelight yoga, restorative yoga, inversions 101, arm balancing 101, yoga nidra, and more! There will be time for meditation, journaling, yoga philosophy and energetic lectures, creating vision board, a nutrition workshop with a registered dietician and spending time with like-minded individuals. Explore the effects of pranayama. This will be a weekend full of self-exploration. The yoga practices will be outdoors. Enjoy organic vegetarian and pescetarian meals. Non-yoga activities can include walks through a bird sanctuary, lounging around the pool or enjoying a comfortable chair on 2 separate decks.

The retreat will be for all skill levels. It will be held primarily outdoors.

This workshop/retreat qualifies for Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Hours

Dates June 9th-11th, 2017.

Yoga Alliance 200 Hour Level Teacher Training Begins April, 2017!!!

The purpose of this Teacher Training Course is to educate the Yoga Teacher in different areas that will awaken their inner knowledge and teach them be able to tap into their own power and self confidence so that they may be of the greatest service to the community which they serve.


In order for a teacher to be skilled they must have a foundational understanding of yoga philosophy, yoga history, understanding the science of asana practice (which includes but is not limited to asana alignment, biomechanics of the body, when and where modifications are needed, when to use verbal cues, when to use hands on adjustments, understanding the importance of breath, understanding the importance of sequencing and working with injuries), understanding the importance of having a personal practice, understanding the importance of being a good and respectful student yourself.   The aim is being authentic and always having the purest and highest intentions to embrace and empower all students. A great teacher meets the students where they are and encourages them from there. The teachers trained in this particular training will learn to guide the student to walk their edge while respecting their boundaries. The teacher will be authentic. They will say what they mean and mean what they say. The only way we can teach others to get into alignment is by personally experiencing alignment. Alignment may be in body form but it is also being aligned in the way we live. It is from this personal knowledge that the teacher teaches. Teacher training is a transformative experience where you develop a deeper understanding of your body, mind, and heart through yoga.

As the facilitator of the training I will be sharing my rich lineage from Jivamukti Yoga and various other syles from which I have studied. The Jivamukti Yoga lineage is a physical, ethical, and spiritual practice. As a Jivamukti Yoga teacher we operate through 5 tenents of yoga philosophy which include: Ahimsa (non harming), Bhakti (devotion), Nada (music and/or sound), dhyana (meditation), and shastra (study of ancient scripture). The teacher trainee will learn to teach from the heart and tradition. We always honor our teachers and those who came before them. May your studies be filled with light and love.  ~ Michelle Acebo
