With incredible scenery and magical vibes, this retreat not only makes for the perfect vacation, but also the ideal setting for creating mental bliss and building a lasting connection to Self.

Teacher Bios

Derrick "DJ" Townsel, a former NFL athlete, is now an Orlando-based personal trainer, health coach, and yoga instructor.

Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Derrick was extremely athletic throughout his childhood and adolescence. His hard work and tenacity propelled him to a full scholarship playing football at Murray State University as a 4-year starter, and then on to the NFL with the Houston Texans from 2010-2011. Following his time with the Houston Texans, 2 other NFL organizations and 2 other professional leagues (AFL and CFL), Derrick found his passion helping others realize their physical and mental potential through personal training.

Inspired by amazing individuals on Instagram, Derrick began practicing yoga in 2012. Not entirely comfortable practicing in public at the time, Derrick became a self-taught yogi in the middle of his living room. He followed online sessions and studied the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects and history of yoga. Derrick has now become an inspiration to thousands who didn't think a passion for fitness or yoga could be a possibility for them, mainly men and people of color. Derrick is now a sought-after 200-Hour Certified Yoga Instructor, Acrobatic Yoga Instructor, Certified Personal Trainer, and Level 2 WCO Calisthenics Instructor in Central Florida.

Channeling his West Indian ancestry, always listening to Bob Marley while he practices yoga, and his signature crown of locked hair, Derrick has become known to the yoga community as the "Rasta Yogi".

I had an amazing time. By the last day I was uncertain where the time had gone. Everything was organized well and I had a lot of fun. The people were great and the activities were memorable. My goal was to have a good time and it exceeded my expectations. Will definitely be on another retreat in the future.

This trip will always hold a special place in my heart. Daniela and Azma made every step of this experience effortless and peaceful. The communication from the moment I signed up for the trip to its completion was punctual and beneficial. They responded to my inquiries rapidly. Even though I was flying across the globe to a place I’ve never been joining complete strangers, I already felt comfortable and safe knowing that Daniela and Azma had my back. I would join another one of their retreats in a heartbeat.

Going on this retreat was one of the better decisions I have made for myself. There was beautiful scenerey, and beautiful people that quickly blossomed into new friendships. The planned activities were perfect and made sense for the particular retreat we were on. Wild elephant safaris and bon fires on the beach were things I never knew how much my soul needed until doing just that. Interesting and challenging yoga classes coupled with relaxing beach vibes was everything I wanted and more. Thank you! -Mara
