Return 2 Balance in Puerto Vallarta

Yoga has so much more to offer us than what we learn in a 75 minute class. Although that in itself can be deeply nourishing, what I love best about retreats is the opportunity to mindfully take our practice off the mat and into our daily lives. This is where the real yoga - and the real transformation - takes place. It is my intention to create a container for this transformation through physical practice, exploration of deep breath work, intentional self-care and a deep-dive into our own patterns and emotional blocks. 

Join me April 30th - May 5th 2018 for Return 2 Balance, a 5 night/6 day Creative Flow Yoga & Meditation Retreat.  Whether you're a brand new beginner or a seasoned yogi, get out of your comfort zone and deepen your practice while learning tools to reclaim and sustain balance... 

Mind, Body, & Spirit.

About the Practice

Each day will begin with a 90 minute Creative Flow Vinyasa session thoughtfully crafted to support our theme of the day. Time will be provided to 'workshop' more advanced postures and receive hands-on adjustments & assists. Morning practice will conclude with pranayama (breath worth) and guided or unguided meditation and a journaling theme to compliment the energy of our practice.

Each evening before dinner, we will conclude our day with a delicious Yin (introspective, cooling, deep-stretch practice) session to observe and decompress the body as well as move any stagnant energies from the organs and connective tissues. The evening practice will serve as a space to prepare the body & mind for rest while also bringing the daily theme back into focus to close out the day mindfully.

All class are mixed level which will, at times, offer challenges to all levels by way of "peak poses" and more advanced variations.  There is never any pressure to perform and all practitioners are encouraged to use the yogic principal of Satya (truth & honesty) when approaching their asana practice. It is the duty of each practitioner to maintain balance between challenging the body & mind and physical safety of themselves and their fellow yogis.

About Natassia

If you’d told Natassia over a decade ago that a 1 page article in a women’s fitness magazine would lead her to a life of yoga, she’d never have believed you! What started as an outlet to relieve stress and stay active has since evolved into a way of life and personal passion as a Certified Vinyasa Yoga Teacher. During her 200-hour training with Drishti Yoga in Costa Rica in April 2015, she immersed herself in the practice, anatomy, and philosophy of traditional hatha, vinyasa, and yin yoga. 

Ever a student, you can find Natassia taking weekly classes and monthly workshops with her beloved local teachers and annual immersions with her favorite international teacher-trainers Her studies in the system and practice of yoga has given way to complimentary ongoing studies in the Meridian System, Astrology, Reiki, Herbalism, and the Subtle Body.

While teaching, Natassia builds flowing, creative, & intelligent sequences on a strong foundation of alignment, breath awareness, and, of course, opening the heart.  It is her hope that each student leave class with a sense of physical empowerment, mental clarity, and awareness of their physical & energetic bodies.
