Sept 15-21st YOGA Rejuvenation with Michelle Weinhofen !!!!!  www.michelleweinhofen.com   ig @michelleweinhofen “Come with a girlfriend or solo & immerse yourself in a jungle paradise to renew, restore and revitalize your energy. Spend 6 nights in Bocas Del Toro, Panama and enjoy yoga classes, workshops, meditation, beach time, adventures & catching up on the much needed “me” time. Leave feeling refreshed!

Michelle is from & currently teaches in Orange Co, California. While training for a marathon and looking for a way to lengthen her muscles and reverse the physical strain caused by running, yoga moved its way into her life and she immediately fell in love. She completed her 200 hour teacher training on the Big Island of Hawaii through Yogaworks led by Alice Cheung & Oliver Reinsch. Michelle’s teaching style consists of a blend of Ashtanga & lyengar yoga.

Michelle’s personal practice started off very physical as she loved the challenge of learning new & difficult poses, but soon realized her love for the calmer side of physical practice and non physical practice as well.  In her classes, she values being able to bring in different aspects of yoga, such as pranayama, meditation & intention setting. Michelle teaches Vinyasa Flow style classes with structural integrity & mindful breath as well as slower paced classes focused on flexibility, longer holds & working towards deeper opening while creating that mind-body connection & overall awareness. Michelle is also a certified Reiki Healer & has trained under many different disciplines within the healing arts. Yoga has changed her life so much for the better that she wishes to bring that positivity & healing into her student’s lives as well. 1446155737700.jpeg

October 20-25th Fall Girlfriend Rejuvenation Yoga Retreat with Meghan Gorham (bio below)  

Grab your bikini & your best friend and join us on the caribbean in October! This fun retreat combines the best of what Bocas has to offer including snorkeling, amazing food and plenty of time for the beach or hanging by the pool. Reiki and massage services can be added to your blissed out island experience. Do as much as you want as the adventure options here are endless or enjoy your downtime in paradise  lounging. Your days are yours to decide. Meghan is great at balancing the perfect rejuvenating, morning yoga class with an afternoon of fun!

Schedule:

Each day a different type of yoga will be explored.We will start our first evening with an invigorating, jet lag relieving class that will get our blood flowing.  We will end with a slightly longer meditation as we listen to the waves roll in just off the firefly deck, helping your mind and body release the stresses of a long travel day.  Each day after we will explore different styles of yoga.  Yoga is about having fun, listening to your body, and challenging just yourself.  No matter where you are in your practice, every pose is accessible at some level. On top of daily yoga classes we will have three workshops.  An arm balance workshop, a heart opener workshop, and a meditation workshop.  The workshops are a less formal approach to yoga than a structured class.  Each workshop will include discussion, demonstration and practice.  The environment is open and relaxed where you can freely ask questions and each person will receive individual attention with whatever poses they are working toward.

Meghan Gorham: Certified Yoga Instructor

meghan

Meghan has been practicing yoga for over ten years but not until she started a family did she find the inspiration to want to teach.  Meghan wanted to deepen her personal practice as well as learn the proper skills and  knowledge to teach her children the mind, body, and spiritual benefits she finds in her daily practice.  She strives to have yoga, meditation and the mindfullness that inevitably follows to be a daily thread in her family’s life.  She started teaching in 2012 and fell in love with the ability to share all the benefits of yoga to willing students, as well as with her family.  Meghan believes yoga, pranayama, and meditation bring about a sense of peace, balance, and strength to mind, body, and spirit. No matter where you are in your practice, everyone can benefit.

Meghan currently lives right down the path from Firefly in her dream jungle home with her wonderful husband and two spirited kids.  The whole family loves the simplicity and the raw, open connection with nature that Bastimentos and her neighboring islands have to offer.
