Todos Santos Yoga Retreat

MARCH 10-16, 2019 // BEAUTY IN BAJA

WITH Patricia Abad

THE MAGIC

What's Unique

Nestled in a desert seaside oasis, the Mexican town of Todos Santos is brimming with creative culture and stunning natural treasures — a perfect host for our yearly yoga retreat in Mexico. Start each day with a beautiful morning, activating practice and end each day with a restorative, regenerative session. February is time for the whale migration/breeding so you’ll have daily sightings of these beautiful creatures from the retreat center or the beach. We’ll also go snorkeling with Whale Sharks if weather permits, so get ready to go deeply inward while deliciously exploring the world each day. THE HEART // The truth is we had equated Baja with all inclusive hotels and spring break, but boy were we wrong. Baja is full of wild, raw, nature and magic. The desert, with it’s striking cactus, rolls into the cleansing sea with a calm force unlike anywhere else on earth. And the whales, the dolphins, the whale sharks are worth the trip all alone, just to see these magical creatures is a dream. We created this retreat to invite you into this nature filled, mystical place to feel, to see, to recover, to learn, to explore and to dream.  OUR PROCESS // Did you know that we build all our trips from scratch?

YOUR TEACHER

Patricia Abad

Born in Spain, I have had the pleasure to live and travel around the world. Yoga found me many years ago when I was living the hectic London life. The healing properties of the practice, both on and off the mat, lead me to India where I lived for seven months having the chance to study different disciplines with great masters and experience the roots of the practice. After these months of profound realizations, the magic of life guided to Mexico, where I am currently based. RYT-500, I have also broadened my teachings studying different taoist and tantric techniques such as zhineng qigong level 1, Yin yoga, and Tantra yoga, which have enriched my awareness of the subtle body and allowed me to have a more holistic approach to the practice. I throw Yin yoga teacher trainings in Mexico, and workshops internationally, I have had the pleasure to work with different clients and events such as opening the Forbes Forum Powerful Woman 2017 in Mexico and appear regularly on TV to share the teachings. My classes are rooted in Hatha yoga, deeply connected to conscious movement and a strong sensitivity for the subtle body and the energetic field. Providing always a safe space to deepen into the journey of the Self and for alchemy to happen.
