Yoga for Your Inner Artist on the Sea: New Moon YogART Retreat
This active retreat explores the intrinsic creative potential that lives in all of us while offering travelers the chance to immerse themselves in the culture of the Big Island. YogART was been created by award-winning arts educators Lisa Rasmussen and Ceylan Hulya, who combine the creative, sacred and healing arts. YogART fuses five inspirational activities: daily yoga, stream of consciousness mark-making, creative visualization, transformative art-making and dialogue. During the five-night stay at Kalani Oceanside Retreat, yogis will also embark on day trips to nearby lava fields and the Petroglyphs of Maunaloa at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
Beach Bums Meet White Sand Recreation
Beachside activities are the main attraction at the Harbour Village Beach Club in Bonaire, an idyllic location for any beach bunny on the small, southern island in the Dutch Caribbean. Tranquil yoga classes are held in an open-air studio taking advantage of Bonaire’s year round average 80-degree temperatures. A sweeping sun deck at Harbour Village offers lounge chairs from which to soak up the atmosphere of the second largest of the “A-B-C” islands (Aruba, Boniare and Curacao), known for its pristine coral reef and candlelight dining on the beach.
Yoga for Cowgirls
Whether you are an avid rider, an adventure-seeker or just someone who loved My Little Pony, Big Sky Yoga Retreats provides intimate excursions that combine yoga and horseback riding for women. Yoga ambassador Margaret Burns Vap created Cowgirl Yoga retreats to give individualized horse-riding and yoga training in small groups in Montana’s Big Sky Country. A dedicated group of wranglers, yoga instructors and chefs ensure this retreat gives you the opportunity to reconnect, find balance and inspiration. Daily classes include some specially designed to open your hips and hearts to what Margaret calls, “the human-horse connection. Guests also get the chance to participate in cowgirl photo opportunities with their horse and forever capture the memory of their wild-west weekend.
