Bedside Yoga – Yoga and End of Life Care Retreat in Mexico
December 2| $1200 – $1700
This five day training retreat is for yoga teachers, therapists, hospice workers, chaplains, clinicians and others in pastoral care, or for those simply interested in learning more about being with people at the end of life, offering solace, presence and appropriate movement and touch.
This retreat has also greatly benefitted people who are in bereavement, processing past or future losses, and those wishing to increase and deepen their spiritual life and connection to divine presence.
We will look at three broad topic areas of yoga: self- study, movement and breath and contemplative tradition – and explore how each aspect has something unique and powerful to offer in end of life care. We will then learn and practice specific techniques within each of these areas, including basic Thai yoga compressions and gentle passive stretching.
When we are not together practicing in the gorgeous wood studio overlooking the ocean, or eating fresh wholesome food family style, participants will have plenty of time to lounge on the private beach in the jungle, swim, kayak, hike to hidden clay pots where you can dig cool clay to rub on your body and refresh your skin, visit a nearby Orchid farm, or simply swing in the hammock.
The retreat takes place at a beautiful secluded “off the grid” center in the jungles of Mexico, about one hour north of Puerto Vallarta. Check here for details on the location.
This retreat is limited to 12 people. There are 4 double and 4 single rooms. If there is a group of 4 people who want to come together and stay in a 4 person room, we do have this available at a reduced rate.
We are offering a special ultra discounted rate for the first six people who register and pay in full by April 15, 2019.
If paid in full by April 15, 2019: $1200. We have only two double rooms available for this rate.
If paid in full by April 15, 2019: $1700. We have only two single rooms available for this rate.
Date: December 2nd – 6th, 2019
