ONE DAY OF YOGA (FOR EVERY BODY) and URBAN ZEN RESTORATIVES, (Reiki, Aroma Therapy, Sound Healing by Erin Raber) and LIVE MUSIC by the great Brazilian guitarist/composer: Ricardo Peixoto. A Complete and Profound Healing of Body, Mind, and Spirit.
In today’s world we live with so many distractions, stresses, and unhealthy rituals that create dis-ease. Coming back to nature and spending a day in beauty, resting, and connecting to your senses is an act of profound self-love and compassion. Only through a sense of full relaxation are we able to find a sense of mental, emotional and spiritual ease. In this retreat expect to nurture self-care habits and a deep sense of well-being, while deepening your understanding of self and others.
• AM: a yoga for EVERY BODY practice, followed by a group discussion on the power of nature and how nature can help us heal using aromatic herbs to help us connect with our senses.
• Mindful walk around the beautiful gardens of Green Gulch (or to the beach)
• Enjoy a delicious, organic, vegetarian lunch at 12:15
• One hour of guitar music with Ricardo Peixoto
• 2.5 hours of URBAN ZEN: Restorative Poses, Aroma Therapy, Breath/body Awareness, Reiki, and Sounds Healing.
Urban Zen practices help us cultivate resilience and sense of presence by strengthening our relaxation response. It is from this place of tranquility and full surrender that our body is more able to access its natural ability to heal, digest, cleanse, sleep, build a strong immune system and fully recharge. Our body awakens and we act with more clarity, creativity, and compassion during stressful times.
This is a great opportunity to balance your life with much ease and complete surrender and to listen to a great Brazilian guitarist and composer from Rio who has delighted international audiences.

Ricardo Peixoto: “Ricardo Peixoto’s fluid melodic sense and original harmonic approach place him at the forefront of Brazilian guitar in the world today. Whether playing classical or electric guitars, Brazilian 7-string, 12 string, octave guitar, cavaquinho, or tenor banjo, Ricardo’s music combines rich melodies, unusual harmonies, and the unmistakable rhythms of Brazil.” Bay Music and Entertainment
