      Health Coach, Ayurveda Practitioner and beloved yoga teacher, Suzanne Morgan, will guide you into a calming yoga retreat to help you reset your body and mind. This week-long retreat is open for individuals to join our small group or a few friends coming together. We can accommodate up to twenty people. 


      I've curated a beautiful program where you can reset, relax and step into greater self-care. Imagine this…

      • Imagine listening to the sound of the ocean as you rock in your hammock on the private, expansive terrace of your ocean-view room.
      • Imagine being able to fully relax knowing that all logistics and details are taken care of for you.
      • Imagine nourishing your body with healthy, gourmet food that delights your senses.
      • Imagine getting the rest you deserve at a boutique resort with white sandy beaches and a spa. Sit by the pool. Have a smoothie or glass of wine at the bar. Get a massage. Or make your retreat more active with SUP, snorkeling, hiking, biking into the local town or taking advantage of the many excursions nearby. Two excursions are already included.
      • Imagine enjoying daily yoga classes and wellness classes that help you recommit to self-care. Suzanne is a gentle cheerleader and experienced teacher who will lead you in all-levels yoga, meditation and journaling and guide you to greater wellness.
      • Imagine being part of a small, friendly, supportive group of wellness seekers.
      • Come and join me for this and more. A $250 deposit holds your spot and it's fully refundable before Dec. 31, 2023.

      Villa Serena’s peacefulness, harmony and elegance invite relaxation and rest; its pristine tropical setting offers exploration and adventure. Ocean front rooms with terraces, under coconut trees, surrounded by lush tropical gardens: the splendor of natural beauty. By the pool or at the beach, you are wrapped by lulling sounds of the waves and winds singing in palm trees. Secluded, still just minutes away from a quaint village and opportunities for exciting experiences… A perfect retreat…


      During your retreat, you will release anxiety and stress and awaken new levels of energy and vitality. You’ll return home refreshed and revitalized. This is an all-levels event -- beginners welcome!


      You'll have plenty of healthy, delicious food that supports emotional balance, resetting the body and clearing the mind. All meals are served buffet style with GF, vegetarian and pescatarian options. Please let us know if you have any allergies or need any food accommodations. 


      Please see the sample agenda below (towards the bottom of the page). There will be plenty of free time to hang out by the pool, hike, explore the quaint town near-by, book an adventure/excursion or do nothing. I will firm up the agenda as we get closer to the retreat. All offerings are optional.

      The trip and location and agenda were exceptional. I so enjoyed the closeness of attending with friends and the openness of everyone in meeting new people. The classes were filled with support and options and opportunities for questions and learning:

      What a blessing to get away and enjoy a weekend retreat at Moon Meadow. Suzanne somehow struck the exact right balance of fortifying and relaxing yoga across about 8 women (how does she do it?!?) and the food… I felt like my whole relationship with healthy and delicious food got a reboot. Everything was great.
      By Annie C for Relax & Renew Yoga Retreat - Dec 2-4, 2022 on Dec 07, 2022
      My time at Moon Meadows was really lovely. The place is so inviting and comfortable. My room was spacious, clean, and a real home away from home for the weekend. Suzanne is a perfect host: accommodating and warm. The food was excellent, inspiring and motivating me to take more care with meals at home. The yoga practice was also just what I needed. Thank you so much!

      It was indeed heaven! Such a relaxing weekend surrounded by great people. Suzanne has the perfect recipe for a retreat weekend filled with yoga, meditation, terrific food and rest. Moon Meadow is a special place that I highly recommend.
