About this trip

Each day, we will have a complete yoga practice which includes breath technique, asana (poses), aromatherapy and a long Savasana (meditation), ending with a very relaxing head and neck massage. 

We will split up our yoga and beach time with volunteering at Los Adoptatables- a dog shelter located in Ensenada, the town where we will be staying.

About your retreat leader, Amanda

I have been teaching for three years and am a daily practitioner. I live with my 15 year old dog, Blaze- a German short-haired pointer who I have been with all 15 years! Yoga has allowed for me to truly LOVE myself; it has raised my confidence and helps keep my stress levels bearable :). 

I love and encourage the practice of yoga off the mat. By this, I am constantly saying mantras to myself like, STRENGTH IS BEAUTY. Yoga philosophy has so many beneficial aspects and it's my dream to share them with as many people as I can. One part of yogic philosophy is SEVA (selfless service)...and that is what we will be focusing on on this retreat... giving for the sake of giving.

It is my goal to allow YOU to shine your true light during your practice. I teach for ALL levels and really encourage beginners or newbies to join! It is my joy to share yoga with you and to help us all heal from the inside out. During yoga, we will connect mind, body and spirit and I hope you'll join me on this OMazing experience.

Amanda McGuigan
I teach and practice yoga and strive to share my passion of the practice with as many as possible. I absolutely LOVE Blaze- my FIFTEEN year old German Short-haired Pointer who has been with me his entire life. I enjoy being outside as often as possible and like to hike, read and travel. Hugs!
