March 1st – 8th, 2014
Join Yoga Masters Alan and Sarah Finger in their 8th annual ISHTA Yoga retreat to the tropics. This year we return the beautiful Mar de Jade Resort in Mexico!
Whether you are new to yoga or have been teaching for years, this retreat is an opportunity for you to deepen your own practice and connect on multiple levels; with yourself, with fellow practitioners, and with the beauty of Mexico’s tropical Pacific coast.
Mar de Jade was created in 1983 in the spirit of active community service, of gratitude for the natural environment, and of the cultivation of genuine friendships. Each day of this weeklong excursion will begin with a signature flow asana class taught by Sarah, followed by a profound meditation with Alan. Alan will also lead inspiring lectures on Tantric philosophy in the afternoon, followed by a luxurious restorative class with yoga nidra taught by Sarah.
All classes will be held in Mar de Jade’s exquisite retreat halls, with hardwood floors, ocean views and floor to ceiling windows that open up completely to allow for natural light and breeze. The rest of the day is yours to plan! With a wide variety of offerings, there is something to suit everyone’s tastes. Daily options for activities include snorkeling, nature and cultural tours, horseback riding, whale watching, and more. If you’re feeling less adventurous there’s always the ocean, warm sun, hammocks and a good book. Do everything… or nothing at all. It’s up to you!
Most rooms in Mar de Jade have breathtaking ocean views and are made with non-toxic building materials drawn from the natural elements in the area. Many include full baths and are suitable for couples and families alike. Room preference will be honored on a first come, first serve basis.
Daily schedule includes:
- An invigorating and inspirational morning asana class with Sarah Platt-Finger.
- The signature ISHTA pranayama and meditation session with Yogiraj Alan Finger.
- An afternoon satsang with Alan, offering in-depth discussion about yoga philosophy and how to truly live your yoga.
- A late-afternoon restorative class with Sarah to soothe and relax body and mind.
Prices vary depending on accommodations, but all packages include 7 nights stay, 3 gourmet organic meals per day and 4 yoga sessions per day!
