About this trip

Have you always wanted to try yoga, but aren't sure where to start, or tried a yoga class but it moved too fast for you? 


In this class, taught by the Lighting the Path Yoga Teacher Trainees,  we will explore some of the basic postures, breathing and meditation techniques that make up the practice of Hatha yoga. Students will leave with a basic understanding of proper alignment and technique, sun salutations and the “vinyasa”, and will be prepared for most beginner and all level classes. 


Yoga is appropriate for just about anyone. You don't need to be flexible or be able to quiet the mind. You simply need the desire to show up and do your best. Whether you are brand new to yoga or you’ve been practicing for some time, this workshop will provide plenty of opportunities to grow, learn and have some fun!

This is a class being offered by the Lighting the Path Yoga Teacher Trainees and will be taught be the trainees and observed and supported by Pete Guinosso.

This is a donation based class. We are raining money for the non-profit - Yoga Gives Back.
Yoga Gives Back is a non-profit supporting the people of India.

In 2023, while many of us are blessed to have yoga practice that sustains us at this difficult time, our fund-recipient women and children in India are struggling for their lives. 


Now more than ever, we are called to take action.

Worldwide, an estimated 300 million practicing yogis drive an 80-billion dollar industry. If a fraction of this can be redirected to empower the underserved women and children in India, we can effect a real change, especially at this challenging time.

What’s included

  • Yoga
  • Lots of Assists :)
  • Yoga Mat
  • Other Yoga Props
  • Fun

More About Yoga Gives Back
There are many charity organizations within the yoga community, but there is none other that focused on giving back to India, especially to support the serious challenges of poverty and related social issues. It’s clear that the economic imbalance is lopsided, that impoverished mothers will never even have a chance to relax with yoga practice in India; while so many of us, an estimated 300 million practitioners today, enjoy this practice mainly for self-care, generating an estimated 80 billion dollars.


Now, our goal is to reach to #OneMillionYogis so we can create much bigger impact, empowering lives.

The yoga retreat was an amazing experience to commence 2023 on all aspects.
By Tim T for New Year Yoga Retreat 2022/2023 on 10 Jan, 2023
My husband and I had an amazing experience. The location was beautiful. The food was great. Pete was fantastic! What an amazing way to prepare the body and mind for the new year!

Pete lead another wonderful New Years retreat at LMB - seamlessly incorporating many students new to pete as well as the veteran long-time pete followers. One student said it best in the closing circle - Pete has a gift of bringing people together and creating community. This retreat was another beautiful expression of that gift. Come as you are and leave with a more open and warm heart - that is the spirit of a Pete retreat!

I signed up for Pete Guinosso’s yoga retreat on a whim wanting to escape the inebriated crowds and dial myself into a more meaningful transition. To be honest, I was intimidated as I don’t regularly practice yoga or meditation. After four days of practice, I return home feeling like I have stretched every muscle in my body, soul, and mind. I am buzzing with joy and feel elevated. I do not remember my body ever feeling this good! My mind is clear, and my heart is open. I am ready to take the learnings off the mat and enter the new year full of purpose and joy. I can't recommend this experience enough and look forward to joining

This was an amazing yoga retreat, and Pete did a great of pulling it all together. First of all, the retreat is in a lovely location, close to a beautiful lake and surrounded by trees. Secondly, I loved the yoga classes, especially the morning classes next to the lake. They were appropriately challenging, and also included bits wisdom and intuition from Pete, as well a good mix of light heartedness and humor. It was just the right balance for a retreat like this. In addition, Pete acted as gracious and welcoming host, making sure the participants had opportunities to get acquainted with each, laugh and connect. Finally, the food was delicious. Overall, this was a very special retreat thanks to Pete's leadership. I highly recommend it, and hope to participate again one day!
