Celebrate Summer Solstice ON the beach! A weekend of Yoga & Breath, Deep Healing Treatments, Sunrises & Fun Summer Activities.
It's the moment we have been waiting and praying for lol - the official summer! We all NEED some sun, yoga and healing right about now. For the second year, I, Yuval Samburski, am joining forces with Robert Blaisdell, my absolute favorite massage therapist/energy worker of all times. YES! For those of you who know, Robert is coming from Guatemala, to join us and offer his magic, here, in North Fork, NY.
We will, once again, stay ON the beach (every room has water view!!) at Jamesport Bay Suites - a beautiful suites hotel, right on the calm bayside waters of the Peconic Bay. The area is full of farms, wineries, art galleries and eclectic shopping. And the best part? It is less than a 2-hour drive from NYC.
Friday night, after some yummy yoga, we will have a picnic dinner together on the beach from a local Italian, farm to table restaurant. Throughout the weekend, we will practice yoga & Pranayama outdoors, gazing at the glorious bayside water. Saturday evening is our beach, bonfire dance, and Sunday, our bubbly farewell brunch. In between all the activities, we will have the chance to experience magical sunrises, sunbath or swim whenever. Or, if we feel like it, get on a paddle board and float... #WhatALife!!! You will also have enough time to book that much needed energy work/massage with the one and only, Robert.

"Transformative. I was totally transported to a different dimension and emerged a bit more whole. Beauty. Inexplicable to me, but wonderfully known to you. And in between, we met and your touch was healing and an inspiration."
