CALENDAR OF RETREATS
Dominica Delight With Nikki Vilella
February 29 to March 7, 2020 ~ 7 nights
Treat yourself to 8 days and 7 nights on the stunningly beautiful island of Dominica, where Nikki and company will help you to relax and rejuvenate during this week-long vinyasa immersion at Jungle Bay. Two yoga classes will be offered daily in Jungle Bay’s stunning yoga shala. Each morning will begin with a workshop like format woven into a classic Kula Flow class: plan to explore a wide range of topics such as the mechanics of proper backbending, the art of arm balancing, wise transitions in Surya Namaskar A and B, bandha practice, or the shoulder girdle alignment necessary to keep any vinyasa junkie healthy. The afternoons can be spent as you choose: hiking throughout Dominica’s lush tropical forests, snorkeling in the warm bubbles of Champagne Beach, visiting the onsite spa, relaxing with your feet up at the pool, or taking a siesta in a hammock. Early evening classes will be more of a lunar flow variety and will feature some yin/restorative, pranayama and meditation. Finish the day listening to the soothing sounds of the rainforest as you retire.
Kula Flow is a form of vinyasa with equal emphasis on creativity and alignment. Expect inventive and thoughtful sequences alongside a fair amount of anatomical information and skilled hands on assists.
