Divine Nature & the 5 Elements:
A Yoga Retreat in Paradise
Friday, October 28th through Friday, November 4th, 2016
a week of yoga, meditation, amazing food, and beach bliss on a remote magical island surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea! Not a single car or a paved road, just jungle paths that wander from one side of the island to another. Waves cresting on coral reefs and a single sailboat are all that exist between you and the skyline, pristine pink sand and grass as soft as moss await your happy toes, and yoga classes here will both stir and soothe your soul. We are making our way here to reconnect with the beauty of nature… to come back home to the Self… to recharge our pranic batteries under the wide open sky with our feet in the water, and with space, time, and the support of this untouched paradise to bring the body and mind back to balance.
Connect, flow, transform, release, integrate…
Embody the qualities of Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space during a sacred journey through element-based yoga classes, and experience the transformative power of nature in the jungle, on the water, in a sacred beach fire ceremony, in the Caribbean trade winds, and in the magical essence of Little Corn Island, a dreamy getaway 43 miles off the coast of Nicaragua where all you can see are turquoise waters, soft sandy beaches, a horizon decorated with billowy clouds, and a jewel-green jungle that grows right up to the most exquisite shoreline, just steps away from your cabana. Peace and tranquility await you!
Each day begins outdoors…
on one of two open-air yoga decks with guided meditation, energetic breathwork, and a vinyasa flow practice tied to the element of the day, and afternoons offer activities that take us into a deeper embodiment of the elements. Presentations on the principles of Ayurveda, the chakras, and a sweet dose of yoga philosophy will be integrated throughout the week along with yoga nidra, restorative yoga, and a dosha flow practice to support the balance of your body, mind, and spirit as you release old patterns and tap into your full energetic potential.

Kate Prantis, RYT 200. Yoga evolved for Kate as means to balance her athletic endeavors as well as those of her clients. Kate has been in fitness industry for over ten years and has worked as a personal trainer, group fitness and spin instructor, adult and children’s triathlon coach, swim coach, and children’s ski instructor. Her own experience as a tri-athlete, cyclist, rock climber, and skier began to take a physical toll on her body, and she was immediately drawn to yoga not only for its physical benefits but also as a guide to living mindfully. Kate’s love of yoga deepened, and she became an instructor, completing her 200-hr training with Vidya Vinyasa YTT at Dragonfly Yoga in Sandwich, NH under the guidance of her beloved teacher Katie O’Connell. Her love for yoga as a way of life continues to grow, and in April 2016 she will travel to Little Corn Island, Nicaragua to teach yoga for three months and practice thai yoga massage.
