Mar de Jade, Mexico | Feb
Another glorious morning... you wake to the lapping of ocean waves just outside your door... you notice your breath deepening…. your mind becomes quiet without effort as you take in the tranquil beauty surrounding you.
It is in this environment that your spirit taps into endless new sources of creativity. As your limbs stretch and release, as your heart expands and the back of your neck softens, you find each moment opening to limitless possibilities. Discover the deep peace and quiet joy that comes from your body moving more gracefully and easily than ever before.
As your mind comes into focus, watch your pen gliding effortlessly across the page. As each moment brings a newfound expansiveness and quiet sense of appreciation for all that is, feel every cell of your being dancing into life.
Join us at Mar de Jade (“Sea of Jade”), an enclave of resplendent beauty and grace. Emerge from this retreat with your soul nurtured and luminous, and step into your life with renewed wonder and joy.

Harnessing the Power of Creativity
Banff, Alberta | Sept 30 - Oct 2, 2011
Honour yourself with time for reflection and self-exploration. Join us in early Fall at our Yoga and Writing Retreat in Banff, Alberta, where we create a sacred space for creativity and renewal at the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
Watch your body move joyfully through space and your breath deepen as you settle into the beauty of your surroundings. As stiff muscles release and the stress of the everyday world dissolves, find the balance, strength, ease, and grace that are already within you.
Step out onto the balcony and breathe the fresh mountain air. With each breath, let your mind be at ease. Know that you are in the best of all possible worlds at the Banff Centre, a globally renowned arts and cultural institution where inspiration abounds and creativity is found in the air itself, with every breath. Find rest and rejuvenation as you write by the warmth of the fireplace, inspired by stunning panoramic views of the majestic Rocky Mountains. In this tranquil environment, let your insights deepen as your spirit expands.
Experience the joy of writing in a small and deeply supportive community – here you can let your words dance on the page. Watch your internal critic disappear as you allow the movements of your body to open your heart and free your words.
Nourish your body with sumptuous vegetarian meals. Relax in the steam room or hot tub, meditate, or go for a walk along the paths of the pristine forest. As you unwind, leaving the cares of daily life behind, experience the creative wellspring of true peace.
