    Join Chris for a week of yoga, nature, and relaxation at Sky Temple in Yelapa, Mexico. Retreats from our everyday routines provide us opportunity for reflection, insight and renewal. Yoga in this tropical setting is nourishing for the soul. The morning class will be a mixed level yoga practice with options for beginners to advanced students to enjoy. Afternoon class will include restorative yoga, pranayama and meditation. Nora Gordon will assist and provide hands-on massage during the afternoon restorative practice. Between classes choose to hike the valley paths, meander through the village, relax on the beach or simply rest in your open air suites. Return feeling refreshed and renewed. I hope you join us!

  • Restorative Yoga
  • Restorative yoga is designed to help relax and renew the body on many levels; the nervous system, emotional distress, physical tension, and more. Poses are supported by props while relaxing music is played and poetry is read to encourage introspection and relaxation.
