Cinco De Mayo ON the beach! A long, leisurely weekend of Yoga, Breath & Sound, Chocolates & Wines in the beautiful NorthFork, NY.
Nope! It’s not too early to head to the beach!! We all NEED some beach time right about now. Celebrate Cinco De Mayo with me in South Jamesport, NY (less than a 2-hour drive from NYC!). We will stay ON the beach (every room has water view!!) at Jamesport Bay Suites - a beautiful suites hotel, right on the calm bayside waters of the Peconic. The area is full of farms, wineries, breweries and eclectic shopping.
We will practice yoga and Pranayama in front of the water, taste chocolate at the NorthFork Chocolate Company, experience a deep transformational Sound Healing session, taste wines, have drinks for Cinco De Mayo and build a bong fire at night. We will take a swim whenever if we feel like or get on a paddle board and float... #WhatALife!!!

Mindful Vinyasa yoga sessions outside (weather permitting), facing the calm water.
One powerful guided Pranayama session to the open beach air. Experience breath-work at its best: practiced by the water, in the open, fresh, deeply-cleansing air.
One deeply transformative Sound Healing session. The session includes a combination of colorful instruments (Tibetan bowls, chimes, Sansula, steel drum and more) coupled with live voice to create a unique music landscape of higher frequency, which could be deeply moving and healing.

Artisanal chocolate tasting at the North Fork Chocolate Company where passion, creativity and love merge together in the form of hand-crafted Belgian chocolates, fudge and gourmet desserts.
