|... and the reasons ... oh let me count mine.... Maybe they are similar to yours ... to retreat from the madness, the fastness, of our daily lives, into a slower, loving, peaceful space to just "be" with ourselves and any others we are lucky to share peaceful time with.
Let me be one of those joyful lucky persons for you.
Because guess what, chickadees, this l'il yogini has discovered she needs chill, and love, and beauty... and peace, and harmony, and care big-time in 2021-22, and maybe just ever after.
After 15 months of stress on stress she is ready to receive, and to encourage any of you kids wise and self-caring enough to also say Yes, okay, like she finally did.
Yes, so "she" is me! Yup, you guessed it! You've got your reasons, I've got mine. Some of them match, some of them are different; it doesn't matter! We've got some seasons upcoming, for you & me!
These are my two impending "Live, Love, Laugh" Yoga Vacation Retreats, below and at right. Check 'em out ~ yogis & no!
November 9-15: Thanksgiving Tropical Retreat
From Tues to Mon, 6 nights at the Cofresí Palm Beach and Spa Resort in Puerto Plata ("the Silver Port"), on the lush tropical island of the Dominican Republic.
My husband and I just went there and vetted it. Oh la-la! You will not be disappointed! I'm smiling ear-to-ear now!
See our video slideshow of our scouting trip here. Don't worry, we will not make you ride the moto-taxis from the airport; that was our little adventure!
You will get hotel shuttle transfer pickup directly from the airport, straight to the vaccination-required, negative Covid-test proofed resort. And on your departure, transfer back to the airport is included, too.
This all-inclusive yoga vacation retreat is super special in the amazingly low price, and that anyone not doing yoga may join, with a discount, so you need not sacrifice friends & family R&R time to get in your vacation pampering AND yoga retreat in one. Why? 'Cos we all need ... chillllllllllll. Yeah.
I've chosen the week based on the best dates for travel, weather, airfare. And just in time to come back refreshed and still eat turkey or tofurkey if you're into it, with chestnuts and stuffing and Macy's Parade!
Direct flights are 3.5 hours and RT $300+ right now from New York for that week.
Pre-register for September or November, or both!! And begin your anticipatory delights early! Take a cue from this happy yogini: we are in charge of our own mood and vibration! And our guided impulses do put us in the clearest space to be of service to others. And the world.
