About this trip

Find strength in surrender with Shelby Gorstein at Still Salty Escape. This retreat is designed to connect you to your own strength and capability, while simultaneously demonstrating the power of letting go. Harmonizing the ideas of sthira and sukha, or stability and ease, this retreat aims to deliver you an experience rich in the beauty of balance. 

You can expect to engage with both yin and yang energies through challenging flows with dynamic transitions, as well as gentle flows that feel delicious in your body. 

Nestled in nature, this salty sanctuary will be your home for a week. Come as you are, and enjoy the bliss to be found in disconnecting from the hustle and bustle of life. Beyond asana, we will have the chance to practice yoga off the mat through activities including: journaling workshop, volcano hike, cooking class, beach cleanup, farm tour, and more!  

These classes are accessible for all levels; however, expect to feel some fire, particularly in the arm balance and inversion workshops. 

*5% of the proceeds from this retreat will be donated to local non-profit organization, Rise Up Retreats. This donation is used exclusively to support environmental initiatives within the area in an effort to empower people through nurturing the planet.
