Yoga And Healing In Paradise!

Many powerful and magical experiences occurred on our Mexico Yoga and Healing Yoga Retreat in Nuevo Vallarta this past week. As I reflect from my beautiful room overlooking the ocean, I realize how special our time was together. Firstly, the resort is beautiful, friendly, extremely safe and helpful in every way. We were completely taken care of, from our special place where we practiced yoga on the beach everyday, to our meals and drinks on the beach, meals in the restaurants, and the many activities, parties and festivals that we attended. The people here come from their hearts. (We were told that Nuevo Vallarta was voted the most friendly city in the world! Now I know why.) We had fun nights, especially Pirate's night, Halloween and Day of the Dead Festival. Dancing, laughing, singing at night, and yoga, meditating, healing and beach time during the day! Secondly, yoga on the beach is like Heaven on Earth here. The energy on the beach is sacred, gentle and powerful. Nuevo Vallarta is secluded and protected by the bay. The beach is much less crowded here. Our morning meditation walk and meditation was Divine, followed by our pranayama (breathing exercises) beside the ocean. Next, Kundalini and Hatha yoga practice. Breathing, moving the body all became synchronistic with the constant sound of the ocean, which is rhythmically beautiful ~ like music. Our heart beats, breathing and energy became one with the waves of the ocean. The vibration of nature within us was filled with the vibration of the ocean, palm trees, sun and sand. Relaxation and healing meditation was equally Divine. How easy it was to sink into the healing energy of nature around us, and awaken our true nature within. Relaxation was still, relaxing, peaceful. Easy to completely let go and to float with the ocean waves... Each day my students relaxed and surrendered to a deeper level. We gathered for a few hours in the late afternoon for meditation and healing. More surrender, letting go of the past, and opening to the new! This all occurred with ease and grace, which is not always easy when the ego wants to be in control! We were blessed to have local visitors participate in our yoga and meditation. How fun to see the transformation in new students! New dreams were created and manifested by all students, opening new healing and creativity to bring home to family and friends. Also, the time swimming in the ocean, sun bathing, swimming in the pool, jacuzzi, and many walks on the beach was fun and fulfilling. We saw baby sea turtles hatching one night, and felt like mid-wives helping to guide the babies to the ocean! Many magical experiences happened for everyone, day and night. This was a rich and deep experience for my students. I enjoyed watching the happiness, peace, healing and fun everyday. It is very exciting for me to see my students reach their goals and beyond during our magical retreat in Villa Del Palmar Flamingos, Nuevo Vallarta! We are excited to return to the next retreat at Villa Del Palmar Flamingos in April 2012! Join the fun, excitement and transformation on the beach with us this Spring. This will be a happy, life-changing experience for you. Heal, renew and experience the miraculous at our next Mexico Yoga and Healing Retreat. Details will be posted soon! Namaste, Karen Korona
