Retreat to Aruba w/ Brock & Krista Cahill

June 30th – July 7th

Year after year we set out on different adventures in life. Brock and Krista are passionate about 3 things: Yoga, Community and the Ocean.  Their Yoga retreat will be a celebration and a braiding of these three elements woven into a fine tapestry of laughter and handstands.  Early registration is required, so don’t hesitate to save the datesJune 30th, to July 7th 2012.

This year’s retreat will be held on the quintessential desert island, Aruba…

Aruba is known for it’s miles of pristine white beaches that rank among the most beautiful in the world. One of Aruba’s most charming traits is the perfect weather.

Brock and Krista  will offer twice daily yoga practices (6/30 evening practice only, 7/7 morning practice before brunch and departure) in a shaded, ocean front pavilion with a brand-new wooden floor!  The retreat center offers props and yoga mats for your convenience.

After your morning session each day we will have a full brunch, which is included.  Two dinners at the resort are also included in the cost below; the first evening we will dine together at the retreat as a group, this will give everyone a chance to rest after a full day of travel; the second dinner gathering will be on July 4th, as a celebration of our Independence and Community. The remaining dinners will be discovering the many amazing local cafe’s on the island.

They will be arranging different optional day trips to towns and deserted islands to snorkel, dive and explore.  Shopping, gambling, nature and late night clubs are also just a short cab ride away from our resort, there will be many opportunities to shake a leg!

Levitation at 9,000 Feet

Here is a short video I took of Brock and Krista Cahill’s yoga class at Wanderlust this year! As I hav mentioned previously I had the pleasure of being their yoga assistant this year which was such an honor and so much fun! The view is breathtaking to say the least and the class was fun, challenging and inspirational as usual. Nothing quite beats handstanding at 9,000 feet in the air overlooking Squaw Valley let me tell you!

Watch the video it will make you laugh, as in true Brock and Krista form they begin the class, after a few Om’s and opening words in one of their all-time favorite poses ( second only to handstand that is..) Navasana (boat pose)!

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?

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.
