Join us in beautiful Mexico for a yoga retreat that will awaken your senses and renew your spirit. Not only will you have the option to partake in daily alignment-based vinyasa, but also the surrounding environment will offer unique healing that only nature can offer. This retreat is open to any yogi, or potential yogi, looking to unwind from the stressors of everyday life and return home feeling refreshed and focused.

Kristin teaches an alignment-based vinyasa class that borrows moving with breath from the Ashtanga tradition and precise alignment from the Iyengar system. The result is a focused practice that forces us to slow down, pay better attention, make better choices and thus act more skillfully — which, as the Bhagavad Gita says, is the definition of Yoga.

In this vein, each day will offer an in-depth look at the different families of yoga poses in accessible ways for participants of all levels. Days will begin with optional morning meditation and end with optional philosophy study. 

 

  • 7 nights accommodations
  • 3 vegetarian meals per day starting with dinner on the first night and ending with breakfast on the last day
  • Group Ground Transportation to/from San Jose del Cabo International Airport (SJD) Airport to Retreat Center
  • Daily yoga practices
  • Personal retreat time (having time to nap, explore, walk, read, and just be)

Accommodations

Enjoy the beauty of Baja, Mexico at this gorgeous oceanfront center. Walk for miles or ride horseback on the spectacular beaches, snorkel in the Sea of Cortez, or relax by the pool, in the hot tub, or in a hammock. Practice yoga in the two unique studios with lovely bamboo floors and expansive windows looking out to the Pacific Ocean and the Sierra de la Laguna mountains. Dine on delicious organic Mexican and international cuisine as you watch the sunset over the Pacific. Then fall asleep to the calming sound of waves on pillow-top mattresses and organic sheets. Immerse yourself in nature with trails to view the diverse flora and fauna and the possibility of seeing hatching sea turtles or humpback whales. Relax and renew your mind and body at this luxurious center with golden sand beaches in the south of Baja, Mexico.

The center features luxurious rooms – with their clean lines and understated elegance – you will drift off into a deep sleep listening to the sound of the crashing waves as they break on the beach. All rooms have views of the ocean and the gardens.

The rooms have polished travertine floors, pillow-top mattresses with 300 thread-count organic sheets, beautiful, custom-crafted teak and rattan furniture, and travertine bathrooms with organic bath towels. 

KRISTIN OLSON

Kristin’s yoga journey began at age 14 when she stumbled upon an Ali McGraw yoga video at Blockbuster. Since then she has been practicing for nearly 26 years and hopes to be practicing for decades more. She loves noticing how her own practice, and others’, ebbs and flows depending on different stages of life, yet always knowing the constant is a disciplined yoga practice, whether that is rigorous asana or quieting meditation.

Kristin’s teaching has been strongly influenced by internationally esteemed yoga teacher Natasha Rizopoulos, with whom she earned both her 200-hour and 500-hour Yoga Alliance-compliant teacher certificate. She has assisted Natasha with YogaWorks teacher trainings and at Kripalu Yoga Center continuously. This unique mentorship has allowed her to lead students through intelligent sequences with precise instruction. She has also study regularly with revered master Iyengar yoga teacher Patricia Walden.

Kristin leads workshops and teacher trainings for beginner students as well as advanced practitioners. She is a contributing writer for Boston Yoga and LA Yoga magazine and writes a monthly column Poise dedicated to emphasizing the true essence of asana.

Testimonials:

“Kristin’s teaching combines the principles of proper alignment with a flow that requires mindfulness and core strength. It is this strict attention to mindfulness that brings you deeper into your practice. She inspires a sense of community and commitment that automatically moves you to keep reaching higher and deeper levels in your practice.” -Laurie L., Yoga Student

“Kristin is knowledgable and takes the time to make sure each class is tailored to the students she sees walk through the door to practice. The classes challenge the students who want to be challenged, but gives the developing yogi the time and space to grow in their practice.” -Joan P., Yoga Student

“Kristin is so full of knowledge regarding alignment and asana, the philosophy of yoga and intelligent sequencing. Her passion for all aspects of yoga is apparent in her teaching and as a result it was really fun, easy and interesting to learn from her.” -Amy R., Yoga Student
