Please join us on an inward journey to the SELF by deepening your spiritual connection through yoga, meditation and ceremony, as well as enjoying the pleasures of life on the beaches of Barbados. By blending different unique styles of yoga, mantras and meditations we intend to learn to be more inclusive with diversity. By embracing the differences of each other and ourselves, we learn we are more alike than different and grow to appreciate a deeper experience. The week is designed to nourish your BodyMindSpirit connection.
