Yoga, the beach, and a wonderful teacher... this ranks as the best vacation of my life!
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 10, 2012
Rosemary Garrison's annual Spring Mexico yoga retreat is taking place once again in the beautiful beach and jungle landscape of Sayulita, Mexico.
Yoga students from all over the U.S. and abroad bring their Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Bikram, Iyengar and other yoga backgrounds to practice under the gentle warmth and peaceful serenity of coastal Mexico, leaving behind the cold Winter months for the Mexico beach. The Spring yoga retreat is an opportunity to study and practice with a much-loved San Francisco yoga teacher, as well as to connect with other students from different practices and backgrounds.
The Mexico yoga retreat in 2012 will be for seven days and seven nights, at the spiritual sanctuary of Haramara Retreat - an enchanted location nestled within one of the most beautiful coastlines along the Pacific. Known by many yoga students and retreat visitors as "a sanctuary for the soul," Haramara provides the luscious backdrop of beautiful ocean landscapes and a vast, tropical jungle - providing for the enrichment, healing, nurturing and encouragement of the yogic spirit.
Retreat amenities include palm-thatch cabanas with large beds with hand-woven sheets and single, double, triple, and dormitory style rooms. Three healthy, delicious meals will be served daily, and there will be opportunities for exploration beyond the retreat perimeter - including surfing, trail hiking, kayaking, and horseback riding.
Each day of the retreat will include a morning and an evening Vinyasa Flow yoga class followed by teachings around the purpose, philosophy, and power of the practice both historically, and within the context of modern lifestyles. The yoga classes will be preparation for daily meditation both for those students with a meditation practice, as well as for those yogis who are interested in beginning meditation. Instruction will be available for all interested.
Featured in the New York Times Travel Section and Food & Wine Magazine, Rosemary's yoga retreats are considered some of the most replenishing and healing weeks of the year by her yoga students, who have traveled from cities all over the country to attend, including New York, Denver, Seattle, Los Angeles, and many others.

She then began practicing with an array of talented teachers within the yoga flow lineage - Max Strom, Dharma Mittra, and Shiva Rea. After a Yoga Alliance Certification, a teacher training with David Swenson, and a myriad of other trainings, she began teaching yoga in 2004 and has taught yoga full-time ever since.
