Yoga Retreat Q & A

LOCATION

Recently declared a UNESCO biosphere reserve, our destination in north east Tobago takes us off the beaten path, toward the most picturesque and pristine of Tobago villages. It isolated by the mountains and a narrow winding road. The quaint village nestles on steep cliffs above the deep blue Man O’ War bay.

As a native of Trinidad and Tobago, and an avid practitioner of traditional yoga, I am delighted to host your week in paradise! With daily yoga, pranayama, and meditation practice, this week is an an ideal opportunity to nourish, recharge, and heal body, mind, and spirit. Reconnect with yourself and nature: roam the hills, swim the salty Caribbean Ocean, hike the forests, enjoy the sound of birds, and breathe the fresh air! Ample time to spend alone or with others in the group. Photos.

This retreat strives to support the local community, culture, and cuisine. Eco-conscious efforts involves sustainable practices (design & materials, water & energy conservation, waste reduction, etc.).

YOGA ASANA EXPERIENCE

Two tours are included. Due to seasonal conditions, flexibility with available options will be required. Tours can include: a glide over the blue-green waters of the Caribbean Sea in a pirogue; a visit to a waterfall, and/or a full day around the island of Tobago! After a day tour, we’ll fall into beds, and not wake up till the smell of coffee wafts through the morning air. Unless that rooster…

OUR TROPICAL ABODE

Home base is a two-storey wooden villa with breath-taking panoramic views of the hills, village, rainforest, and Caribbean Ocean.  Peacocks and a variety of singing birds will surely catch your attention. Walking distance to Tobago’s best beaches!

BOOKING FLIGHTS – I will help co-ordinate all flight details for the retreat. 

PURCHASE TRAVEL AND MEDICAL INSURANCE – Unforeseen circumstances can happen to anyone at anytime. It is essential to have travel and medical insurance.  

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE

Level of adventure/fitness- the villa is on a cliff and although the beach is a 5-10 minute walk away, the road can be steep in some areas.

Digital detox – consider limiting use and savour this opportunity to reconnect with yourself and other like-minded individuals in a beautiful location.  

Once the group is complete, we meet in-person (or online) to get acquainted, and discuss the exciting details!
