About this trip

Cultivating presence is a practice of returning to the present moment, over and over again. On our mats, we direct our attention in conscious ways – connecting to the breath, noticing physical sensations, observing thoughts as they arise. With consistency, we develop a greater sense of awareness, which allows us to be more reflective and receptive towards our current experience – whatever it may be. Through our sincere efforts and willingness to be present, we expand our capacity to navigate through and embrace all this life has to offer us.  

Join me for a blissful 7 days & 6 nights at Prana del Mar, a luxury ocean-front retreat center in Todos Santos located on five beautiful acres near the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula. The retreat program includes a balanced blend of twice daily yoga and meditation - including Vinyasa Flow, Gentle/Restorative, Yoga Nidra, Kundalini & Pranayama. We will explore practices that help us cultivate mindful awareness, creating the internal conditions for clarity, healing, and transformation.


You will have ample time to relax on your private deck, lounge by the pool, unwind with a massage or walk along the stunning beaches. If you’re up for a little adventure - surfing, horseback riding, kayaking, snorkeling, hiking and excursions into town will be offered. We will gather for delicious meals overlooking the magical desert landscape, connecting with and sharing experiences in the spirit of community. 

LOCATION

With the Sierra de la Laguna mountains to the east, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the rugged desert all around, Prana del Mar is nestled in a tranquil valley that provides a natural setting for rest, relaxation, rejuvenation, and exploration. You will be treated to stunning vistas, expansive skies, and a sense of spacious tranquility. This secluded, zen-like property is located between lively Cabo San Lucas and the artistic community of Todos Santos, offering everything from cultural excursions to quiet moments in nature.

The luxury accommodations at Prana del Mar are spacious and elegant. All rooms have pillow top mattresses with 300 thread count organic sheets, custom teak & rattan furniture, travertine bathrooms with organic bath towels, views of the ocean and the gardens, personal terrace with chaise lounges.

Yvonne, E-RYT500, is deeply committed to living wholeheartedly and sharing the timeless teachings of yoga. She approaches the practice from a holistic perspective – weaving together mindful movement, breathwork, meditation and philosophy – and encourages each person to discover their own path to clarity, steadiness and ease. For Yvonne, all of life is practice. How we relate to our inner world shapes the way we move through the outer world. Every moment is an opportunity to meet ourselves in the moment, to breathe and begin again.

Just an incredible experience. Prana del Mar is a magical place that puts you out in nature, fills your belly with delicious food, and fosters kindness and community. More than anything, though, I have to give gratitude to Yvonne and the great community of people she attracts -- the classes were fantastic, spaces of strength, quiet, and joy, and I feel so lucky to have had this experience.

Yvonne is a tremendous teacher and leader, and I'm so grateful I joined this retreat. Highly recommend! This was my first yoga retreat of any kind, and I look forward to many more. Ratna Ling is a beautiful place, with large cabins and welcoming spaces.

Such a phenomenal getaway! After a year+ of practicing by myself at home (and on Zoom), it was a sincere gift to be in the company of others who traveled from near and far to be together for a weekend of restoration and rejuvenation with Yvonne at Ratna Ling. The setting could not have been more beautiful and serene; and I can't recommend the "yoga > eat > contemplate > yoga" rhythm enough. Many thanks to all who made it so.

This retreat was delightful. Perfect teacher, yummy food, and gorgeous surroundings. If you want to get away from your busy life and go inward, do a retreat with Yvonne. She is warm, wonderful, and brilliant. I loved that you could join in on everything or schedule a massage .... and/or back away for self care. See you in 2022! Much gratitude.
