Vieques Retreat

An ALL YOU CAN SWEAT kind of Weekend get away!

14 - 17 Nov 2019

Namaste! Thank you for visiting us, and showing interest in our first studio weekend retreat. Why Vieques? It is close to home, but far enough to help us disconnect from our day to day; helping us truly connect with ourselves and one another, in a relaxing and intimate environment.

Join us at Finca Victoria, in an island get away you can not miss! Explore the movement of breath, body and spirit, in a guided retreat with Valerie, in the small island of Vieques, Puerto Rico.

 

RETREAT OVERVIEW 

We are taking you to discover the movement of life, new ways to understand, access, and use breath, asana, journaling, nature, luxury, play, and more… and it all starts with YOU! We have chosen a medley of our favorite practices to share with you over the course of this weekend. By the end of our retreat, we promise you will rejoice in the very essence of who you are, enjoy and understand the importance of YOUR daily practice, and what is most important to us, you will leave with a grateful and compassionate heart, as a kula, as a COMMUNITY… as FAMILY. Join us!

* No prior yoga, meditation, socializing or spiritual experience needed!

OUR HOSTS

Finca Victoria: A farmhouse style Bed & Breakfast in the heart of the small island of Vieques, Puerto Rico. The hotel is located on a hill with wonderful cross-ventilation, surrounded by luscious vegetation and the soothing symphony of the native Coqui frogs. Being on one of the highest points of the island provides us with an amazing view of sunrises and sunsets. The island has hardly any light pollution, which creates the perfect atmosphere to see the stars at night. Under the right clear-sky conditions, even the Milky Way becomes visible for stargazers to admire.
