This spring in Playa Maderas, Nicaragua, Gregg Drusinsky, Angelica Kushi, and Michael Hewett are offering a 7-day exotic retreat that will jam-pack the participant with adventure, asana, meditation, macrobiotic philosophy, live music, and delicious eats.
Ease yourself out of winter by committing to a week and a half of renewed transformation. Multiple price packages are available to suit your specific needs, and we are dedicated to providing the right combination of sthira and sukha–steadiness and serenity–to both tease and tense the body toward enigmatic release.
The atmosphere of Maderas Village is ripe for regeneration; the website reads, “focus on whatever you like to do.” And we sure as hell will. This is yoga without the bullshit. Prepare your ass to be kicked, and celebrated, accordingly.
The retreat will be held from 4/20-4/27, and if you happen to arrive a day early (4/19), the first night’s free. Registration ends 4/5, and space is extremely limited. Join us for an all-inclusive ride of seriously enlightened shenanigans. Register here.
