About this trip

A 6-day, 5-night retreat led by Kayla Nielsen, Louise Albano, and Alex Goldyn which fuses the healing power of yoga, nutrition, and adventure into one complete holistic experience. Together, we will explore mindfulness through asana, meditation, and sustainable food preparation, production & consumption.

10% of the proceeds from this retreat will be donated to Go Light Our World’s projects across the globe. 
Not only will you be investing in a life-changing experience for yourself in a beautiful location; but you will also be giving back to impoverished communities around the world.
