Winter just keeps getting colder and the escape to Mexico for a Sun, beach and yoga retreat with Rosemary is an absolute soul saver!
(PRWEB) February 22, 2011
It's that time of year again, when Winter has given us just about as much as we can handle and Spring can't come soon enough... and a trip to Sayulita, Mexico for a vinyasa yoga retreat with San Francisco yoga teacher Rosemary Garrison is just what the doctor ordered. Students from cities all over the US bring their Ashtanga, Power Vinyasa, and other yoga backgrounds to practice under the gentle warmth and peaceful serenity of coastal Mexico.
This year's yoga retreat in Mexico will once again be held at the spiritual sanctuary of Haramara - an enchanted retreat location nestled within one of the most beautiful coastlines along the Pacific. Known by many students and visitors as "a sanctuary for the soul," Haramara provides the luscious landscape of beautiful surf and a vast, tropical jungle - providing the backdrop for the healing, nurturing and encouragement of the yogic spirit.
The Mexico yoga retreat will last for seven days and nights. Each day 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 our contemporary 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.
Haramara's amenities include palm-thatch cabanas with large beds with hand-woven sheets and single, double, trio, and dormitory style rooms. Three 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.
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 Chicago, New York, Denver, Seattle, Los Angeles, and many others. The Mexico retreat is an opportunity to study and practice with a much-loved local teacher, as well as to connect with other students from different practices and backgrounds.
Interested students are invited to contact Rosemary for additional yoga retreat details. Students in the Bay Area are invited to attend a yoga class in San Francisco at one of the studios where Rosemary teaches.
About Rosemary Garrison:
Rosemary's yoga journey began with the Mysore Ashtanga first series taught by renowned Ashtanga yoga teacher Tim Miller, with whom she has studied extensively. Years later, further exploration into yogic movement and practice guided her to Vinyasa Flow yoga classes where she found the dance of Vinyasa liberating, beautiful, and alive. 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. Rosemary is RYT 500 Yoga Alliance certified.
In addition to teaching her weekly yoga classes Rosemary is a private yoga instructor in San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area.
