When I was in Costa Rica recently, I was in an area that has been greatly influenced economically by the yoga industry. I had the chance to get to know the management team at Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort and in conversation we started discussing some passion projects we all have.

Hey everyone, I just finished putting together the highlights from February 2015 Mexico Retreat and wanted to share it with you all – please watch the video below!! So many amazing moments with new friends – it has become an annual retreat to San Pancho, Nayarit, Mexico.
What is different this year is a focus on the RAW aspect. With a daily yoga/meditation practice each day we will still adventure and explore but nourish ourselves with the help of Chef Alex and his wife who will be on-location offering raw, gluten-free and all vegetarian options in addition to the regular full menu. The option is yours to cleanse and restore inside AND out!
