January 26 - Feb 2, 2016
Christiansted, St. Croix, US Virgin Islands
w/ Matece Skow and Erin Matteucci
During the day, wake up with morning pranayama, meditation and yoga in the outdoor yoga pavilion, cooled by ocean breezes, under a custom-designed tent on an ample, suspended wooden floor. Yoga is followed by scrumptious vegetarian brunch featuring local exotic fruits. Then explore white sand beaches, peaceful harbors and rocky shorelines; go hiking (in many different ecosystems), snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing or kayaking. Visit colorful local festivals, historical and ecological tours and much more. Return to a gentle/yin yoga class in the afternoon to unwind from a day of relaxing Caribbean style.
At night we gather around the pool for a sumptuous dinner prepared from local organic produce, then enjoy optional evening activities such as fire dance performances, sunset sails or free time.
The vacation residences are steps away from the ocean beach, pool and neighboring beachfront restaurants. The beautifully designed and fully-furnished suites feature a comfortable living and dining area, kitchen (many with washer/dryer), two bedrooms, two baths, and a large open gallery with a view of the beach. Four people share a suite, two in each bedroom. Rent or bring your own gear, and enjoy snorkeling directly off the resorts' beaches. An astounding array of tropical fish, manta rays, sea turtles and starfish dwell in our underwater "backyard".

Feedback from friends who have
joined us on retreat in the past:
“Thank you so much for all your work in putting together THE perfect vacation! Sign me up for the next one!”
“I’ll always remember the morning practices, looking over the never-ending rice fields with the rain thundering down and how it stopped perfectly in time for us to come out of savasana and enjoy the sun…”
“I don’t know where to start – the resort, the food, the people, the YOGA! This was one of the best trips I’ve ever done!”
“I’ve been to other yoga retreats with different groups and this was by far the best one. You obviously thought of all the details and I still can’t believe you found this place. The pictures definitely did not do it justice…”
