Southern Brazil Yoga & Adventure Retreat March 11th-19th 2011 With Angela Kukhahn and Anthony Ippolito

Brazil retreats

Hello yoga enthusiasts and adventure lovers this retreat is for you

Our week in Southern Brazil will be a wonderful experience of culture, natural beauty, and adventure. In addition to practicing yoga in energy filled, breath taking locations, we will spend some time exploring the most beautiful beaches in Brazil and the dune ecosystems that surround them on Santa Catarina Island.

We’ll sail through the coastal islands to the Baia dos Golfinos (Bay of Dolphins) and have lunch on a distant beach.  The bay is appropriately named as dolphin sightings are frequent in this area.  At night we’ll slip away to dance to traditional forró music.  Whether you want to dance or not, it will be extremely difficult to keep your body from moving and getting involved with the local crowd, gyrating and effortlessly gliding around the dance floor.

We’ll travel up the chiseled mountains of the Serra Gaucho to our home base the Pousada Morro Grande, a 5th generation working ranch.  On horseback, we’ll ride through fields of native wildflowers, majestic Brazilian Pine forests and breathtaking canyons.

You will see the striking difference of the vegetation inside of the canyon and pass many beautiful little waterfalls and swimming holes to cool off on our hikes out.

Rare and endemic giant tree ferns are numerous in the canyon and take on surreal shapes and growth forms like trees out of a Dr. Suess book.

Each night, the stars of the Southern sky will begin to poke through the impending dark canopy.  New constellations only visible in the Southern hemisphere will present themselves.

Our finale will be the barn party.  We’ll feast on the famous Brazilian barbecue, dance the traditional Gaucho dances to live accordion music and be swept away in the warm atmosphere of the traditional Gaucho lifestyle.

WANDERLUST OR BUST!

Brock and Krista Cahill photography by Jasper Johal

Brock & Krista Cahill will be teaching at the second annual Wanderlust Festival, July 29 – August 1, 2010 in the stunningly beautiful peaks of Squaw Valley USA in Lake Tahoe, CA.

I am very happy to announce that I will be there to (as many of you already know) working as their assistant! I think this is going to be an amazing chance to hang with other yogis, take workshops from some of the worlds greatest teachers and enjoy a fantastic music lineup as well!

Below is a e-mail I got yesterday and thought I would pass along to you guys to get you pumped for Wanderlust!!!

Don’t have the dough but still want to go?

Win a trip from Prana a yoga clothing company HERE

Wanderlustis a one-of-a-kind festival bringing together the world’s best yoga teachers and best performers in rock & roll, all in a setting of breathtaking natural beauty. It is a place to relax, unwind, bend, dance, revel, and contemplate. It’s a community of like-minded people who share a common set of interests and values. It’s a chance to escape the mundane and dwell in the extraordinary. It’s healthy hedonism and spiritual exploration. Most of all it’s a long weekend of satisfying, stick-to-your-ribs fun.

This year’s festival features even more of the good stuff – expanded yoga offerings, more great music, a complement of organic foods and biodynamic wines, and the same incredible scenery and community that made last year’s event such a hit. The New York Times said it best: festival goers get “the same rejuvenating charge from raucous dancing as from mindful breathing.”

Brock & Krista’s Wanderlust Line-Up!

Brock & Krista will be taking center stage for 3 AWESOME classes that you won’t want to miss!

Brock & Krista’s Signature Flow Practice – (bala) nce yoga:

A blend of inversional vinyasa flow; bala is a Sanskrit word meaning strength. Therefore, in this practice, we use our strength to create balance. What a wonderful way to use your power to cultivate harmony, clarity, grace, and peace. In this style of practice expect to spend a good deal of your time upside down, or in an arm balance, challenging gravity and using your roots to find wings.

Foundations of Flight:

This workshop begins with plentiful amounts of core work to warm the body by igniting the fire within and awakening the inner warrior. Brock & Krista will then go over proven secrets to make arm balances and inversions effortless! The workshop will conclude with a few creative “arm balance medleys” created by Brock & Krista that sequence these challenging postures together in a fun & melodic flow. This workshop is great for a group of fledgling flyers who are just gaining their wings; and of course the frequent flyers are welcome to join in as well and brush up on the basic techniques of these masterful postures!

Tricky Transitions – All the Fun of Flowing and Floating:

What can we say…flow yoga Rocks!!!!! Even more exhilarating are the transitions into, out of, and between the postures. Balancing sequences of two or more poses requires a intense mental focus, physical strength and a truly playful spirit. Bringing together all the necessary ingredients for a truly deep and transformative practice. Join us on a wild journey of crazy postures and fun transitions. As your guides, we will help you to tap into the strength within you. This will allow you to smoothly navigate through the turbulence, delivering you safely to the other side. Yoga will give you the opportunity to practice getting through hard or complicated transitions in your life; knowing that by using your strength you can get even better, and overcome your obstacles.
