We would love to share this experience with those who are interested in traveling with a diverse group of participants and are open to exploring some of the areas less traveled by yoga tourists.
While this is NOT a Teacher Training program – we intend to treat this experience to be more than a vacation with some yoga in it. Our role as teachers and facilitators, whether traveling to amazing locations or practicing in our home in the Hudson Valley, we aim to support self-care practices for anyone seeking to use yoga and meditation in practical ways in their daily life. As well as work with artists and creatives specifically to support their personal and professional goals with their art with the wisdom and support of yoga and sound healing.
All are welcome to join us on this retreat – as artists/teachers/healers from the African diaspora – we encourage all black and brown travelers to join us and explore your self-care practice with us in a place that offers afro Caribbean and indigenous history and culture and perhaps surprisingly aligns with the practice of yoga and meditation for all.
Offering this experience in Panama allows for practice and experience in a beautiful location – but also takes time to learn about people, places, and things that are a part of yoga history and current story- beyond our typical exposure to yoga and yoga retreats.
We will be offering multiple gatherings and meet and greet opportunities to meet with us and other participants so we can have some familiarity before traveling together.
You may join us in person when possible in the Hudson Valley or virtually via zoom at designated times. You may also request a one on one meet and greet – Please send your questions to Sara
