Wake up every morning in one of the most biologically-diverse places on Earth to the sounds of the jungle and get ready for a day of a lot or a little! This retreat is yours to customize. We offer meditation every morning and two yoga classes per day. Get a massage on your private lanai, ride horseback on the beach at sunset, scuba dive, or tour the national park with a biologist. Or…let the yoga be enough, take naps and read a book in your hammock overlooking the Pacific. You won’t be disappointed either way. Throughout the week you’ll be nourished with delicious meals – many plant-based, but also fish and meat available. We want this week to be a time for you to fill your cup with whatever you need when you arrive.

About the instructor: Jen Breen & Mary-Kate and Sherry
I grew up in Seattle in a hippy, creative, curious, outdoor-loving family. During my teenage years my mother would walk around the house in aerobic clothes and drag me to a funky yoga class in a gym. Little did I know that this would become my life’s work and passion. I began studying yoga formally with Cintra Brown in Phoenix, AZ while teaching elementary school with Teach For America.
i appreciate how yoga helps me be more authentic, compassionate and aware. I use yoga to help me understand myself better which helps me understand others better. I appreciate that it’s a practice for life. My practice has given me tools to help me in life most especially as a wife and mother and a steward of this beautiful earth.
My inspirations and influences along the way are: my mom who values humility and who is quoted to say, “you aren’t as important as you think you are.” My dad who imparted wisdom through modeling a good life of balance and harmony and following your bliss. My sisters Kim and Heidi who are my best friends, advisors and truth tellers. My husband Tom who practices a yoga called “sense of humor” and my four little yet mighty teachers; Grace Cal Johnny and Kate. My yoga teachers; Cintra Brown who taught me the power of mantra and seeing students, Sharon Land who taught me about Daimon and finding one’s unique inner gift. Bikram for the power of asana, heat, discipline and sequencing. Erich Schiffmann for the power of meditation, listening, riding the edge and free form yoga. Katerina Wen for her devotion to the multi-dimensionality of yoga and her brave, authentic approach to teaching with depth and courage. Catherine Shainberg for my yearly tune ups in the potential of imagery to powerfully transform habits. Newest teacher of mine; Nevine Michaan of Katonah Yoga…an original and diverse teacher. And, lastly Mother Nature — the forest, the sea, the mountains and most of all the moss.
