One of the best times to visit Japan is in the spring when the world-famous Japanese cherry blossoms are in full bloom. So we thought, what if we combined cherry blossoms with yoga on a wellness retreat? It was a match made in heaven.
This retreat will include travel around Japan with a local private guide. We will enjoy yoga as scheduled, along with daily cultural experiences.
You will be staying 6 nights at centrally located Hyatt Regency hotels that are highly rated and 1 night at a 5-star, traditional Ryokan with an onsite Japanese Onsen.
Plan your air travel to arrive at Haneda International Airport in Tokyo (HND) on April 2nd, no later than 3 PM.
Plan your air travel to depart from Haneda International Airport in Tokyo (HND) on April 9th, no earlier than 2 PM ( We will take a morning flight from Osaka to Tokyo, which is included)
We will travel 1 hour from Kyoto to Osaka by van and then another hour from Osaka to Tokyo.
* Schedule is subject to change.
** Please note that Japanese Onsens are separated by gender and are experienced in the nude. The Onsen and all activities listed are completely optional.

The moment I found yoga, I began transforming into the person I am today. On the mat I learned how to love myself and others. Then suddenly it became obvious that I needed to transcend the unhealthy habits, relationships, and career path that previously defined me.
In 2009 I received my 200-hour Teacher Training from Yoga South in Boca Raton. It was here that I gained the foundation of alignment, sequencing, and adjustments that are staples of my teaching style. Later, I received a Yin Teacher certification from Little Ocean Yoga in Jupiter. Today, I continue to practice with mentors regularly because I understand that an exceptional teacher must also be a devoted student.
I am hands-on and I love to challenge students. When I’m not teaching yin, I generally guide a physically demanding, yet intuitive vinyasa flow that connects the body to the breath, mind and spirit. I encourage students to stay present through each posture and go inward to examine their self-limiting thoughts.
I believe our realities are shaped by our thoughts. And if we can rewire them to be more open, loving and forgiving, we can create healthier bodies and minds.
I believe adjustments are another way to inspire students to go inward by helping them stretch beyond self-imposed limitations.
I hope to challenge students’ perceptions on the mat so they may see life off the mat differently. Of course, always with love, patience and encouragement.

Welcome to Tokyo, the nation's capital! Did you know that with over 9 million residents, Tokyo is classified as the largest city in the world? And that's not even counting the neighboring towns in the Greater Tokyo region, bringing the number to a whopping 36 million! Your private car will collect you from the airport and take you to your accommodations.
Plan your travel to arrive in Tokyo no later than April 2nd. We'll meet at the hotel that evening for dinner and group orientation. On this first day together, we will plan to visit the famous Shibuya Crossing: The busiest crossing in Tokyo.
