Join Jon & Leah Hansen for this powerful journey into the heart as we connect through daily Meditation, Asana, and Inquiry. Allow your heart to be healed in this serene setting where the beauty of the desert meets the beauty of the ocean. The ocean and the desert have an immense power to heal and restore our head, our heart and our soul to come back into play. Through daily meditation, asana, and inquiry we will begin to explore and expand our views on what we are capable of, where we might be holding back in life, and what is possible when we free ourselves up to be the whole and complete beings that we are.
We will explore the practice of sthira-sukha: balanced action. Just as we pour ourselves into the physical practice of yoga we will also PLAY on and off the yoga mat! We will explore Baja together and at the same time explore new possibilities in playfulness on the yoga mat. We will build community together and connect through the community in Baja. This will leave us with a restored sense of self and aligned purpose in life.
And finally, we will relax each and every day. Whether it be a long walk on the beach, relaxing by the pool, or snorkeling the sea of Cortez. This setting beckons you to restore yourself. You will walk away lighter and brighter as you take time to reconnect with yourself and what you are up to in this precious life that we get to lead.
