What does it mean to be powerful and what are the various ways in which we might harness our power both on and off our mats? Join Claudia Teicher and Liz Schulman in beautiful Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for a yoga retreat designed to investigate these questions.
In the 5 Waves of Power Yoga Retreat, we will explore the manifestation of power from the external to the internal through the identification of 5 power sources: limbs, joints, core, bandhas, and breath. Accompanying dharma and yoga philosophy will connect these practices to our everyday lives. This retreat will fire you up and leave you connected to your own power source.
Please note: this retreat is not designed for someone brand new to yoga
