Tulum Retreat – Yoga, Meditation, Flow & Song – with Leigha Butler & Corinna Rae – April 15-22

Be Love Retreat in Tulum Mexico

The mission behind this retreat – Be Love – is to nourish the spiritual warrior in each of us.

Join my wonderful guest teacher Corinna Rae and me for a beach yoga retreat in beautiful Tulum, Mexico at the all-inclusive bohemian-style resort Maya Tulum in April of 2017. This is a chance to explore the Mayan ruins and jungle landscape of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea, all while deepening your yoga practice, absorbing a gentle ocean breeze, and setting life-affirming daily intentions.

Tulum Yoga Retreat Leigha ButlerThe sea in Tulum is as bright an aquamarine color as you can imagine. The sunrise boasts pastels and contrasting colors that are tough to capture on camera, and the friendly community is off the grid but features comfortable amenities, fantastic food, and many healing services, from massage to clay baths to sweat lodges.

Tulum Mexico Yoga Retreat Leigha ButlerThe mission behind this retreat – Be Love – is to nourish the spiritual warrior in each of us. As yoga practitioners, we are already inclined to lead lives of compassionate action, and I aim to support you as you develop and awaken the super soul-dier within. When “Be Love” is your guiding mantra, the right choices seem to simply present themselves and life unfolds like a flower delicately, sensuously revealing its precious inner essence. Think of this week as a time to renew your commitment to letting love light the way.

TO RESERVE YOUR SPOT

Reach out to Amanda, the very helpful woman doing reservations for us. She is easy to reach via email at reservations@mayatulum.com, or call Maya Tulum at 1-888-515-4580 x231.

TRANSPORTATION

Airport Code – “CUN” – Tulum is located about 75 miles south of the Cancun Airport. Last year it took us about an hour and twenty minutes to get to our resort.

Getting from Cancun to Tulum – Maya Tulum is very happy to arrange transportation for you from the airport to the resort. It’s a good idea to confirm this when you book or ask about alternatives. There is a public bus, for instance; but we believe the shuttle is worth the price.

In & Around Tulum – Most everything is accessible in Tulum by foot or by bicycle, including the Mayan Ruins. Maya Tulum Resort has bicycles for rent.

Monday Night Chant Sessions

Monday Night Chant Sessions

Every Monday 8:15pm

Beginning October 3rd

hh-tyh2016_0632

We’re excited to announce that beginning Monday, Oct. 3, The Yoga House will be hosting Monday Night Chant Sessions led by the studio co-owner, Jacqui Nash, at 8:15pm (after the 7pm House Flow class). Each week, we’ll explore the use of music and the vibration of our voices with traditional chants and mantras and the accompaniment of the harmonium as an extension of meditation and of connection to our practice. The sessions will be about 30 minutes, and attendance at the 7pm is not necessary. We hope that you will join us! These sessions are free of charge.

A Special Flying Flow Class to be held at BSP, Saturday, September 17th, 7:30-9am

Hi Flying Yogis & Yoginis!

On Sat., Sept. 17th, we’ll hold our Flying Flow class at BSP’s upstairs springy, bamboo-floored dance space. This way, we can spread our wings and fly (and fall!) without fear of putting a foot through someone else’s rib cage or noggin. Not that we don’t thrive on the intimacy of our own space… It’s just that, this’ll be an adventure.

If you park at The Yoga House, just cross the street and find the red double doors in the corner of the giant brick building. That’s the back door to BSP. It’s got a sign that says, “Standard” above it and an arrow pointing down to it! — Official address is 323 Wall Street. The doors will be unlocked and someone will be there to guide you to the second floor dance studio.

I’ll be unlocking The Yoga House at around 7, so please grab a block, a strap, and a blanket if you don’t have your own. We’ll have to drop props back off before Felipa’s folks start coming in, around 9:15 + we’ll want to get our ninety minutes in, so arrive on time!

I’m really looking forward to the chance to play around with a lot of room for movement

Peace, peace, peace,

Leigha
