Greatful Heart Retreat: Maya Tulum March, 2013



As the remains of winter linger through the month of March, give yourself the gift of renewal on the Grateful Heart Yoga Retreat with Barbara Voinar.

The winter months fill us with both the satisfaction of sequestering away, and the budding desire to expand and grow. As spring approaches, we recognize our natural inclinations for change and growth. Feeling the inevitable aspects of change occurring within and around us, giving oneself the gift to be on retreat reconnects us with the source of renewal within. Each time we configure an asana, we immediately come into the present moment. As we develop clarity, comfort, and familiarity in the broad range of our practices, we gain a great sense of trust in our ability to meet life’s ever changing landscape with an open heart and mind.

Life is greatly simplified during this week. We stay in traditional yet elegant palapas, are provided three plentiful, excellent meals each day, and enjoy the company of kindred spirits in the most beautiful of surroundings. Imagine waking up to a sunrises over the Caribbean Sea, walking on the beach, and enjoying long morning yoga practices of meditation, asana, and breathing awareness. In the presence of the vast blue sky and expansive sea, we find ourselves relaxing the conversation of all we feel responsible for, and instead, finding time to rest and reflect on all that we are grateful for in our lives. Benefiting from two daily yoga practices, we expand our sense of freedom and lightness, as we feel the inner encouragement to let go of what no longer serves us.

There is time to take excursions to ruins, visit the Sian Kian Biosphere and cenotes, sweat your prayers in a Temescal, enjoy the cooling tradewinds of Tulum’s white sandy beaches, and create your own magic. Each day affords ample time to relax, renew, and pamper yourself.
