YOUR INSTRUCTOR

KYLIE LARSON

Kylie Larson, RYT began practicing yoga eight years ago in an effort to give back to her body for all the work it had done for her in previous athletic endeavors. Somewhere along the line she began to see the benefits of practicing yoga far surpassed the physical and helped to deal with the day to day stress that life throws at you. It soon became a passion of hers. Kylie completed the Green Mountain School of Yoga's 200+ hour training and she is now a registered yoga teacher. Her teaching style is upbeat and energetic, sprinkled with bits of yoga philosophy. She likes her students to have fun during class and get a workout, but also wants them to realize it's not just about the asana.

THINGS TO DO

TEMAZCAL CEREMONY

Temazcal, a Mayan word meaning “medicinal house,” is a powerful healing ritual that has been used by the Mexican Aztecs, Mayans and Native Americans for centuries. This ancient process uses steam and sacred sounds to cleanse the body, mind and spirit.

Visit the site of a pre-Columbian Maya walled city which served as a major port for Coba. Explore ruins are situated on 40 foot (12-meter) tall cliffs, along the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula.

MAYAN RUINS TOUR

Spend the afternoon exploring the Sian Ka'an biosphere reserve and float down an ancient canal made by Mayans approximately 1000 years ago. You'll pass through four different ecosystems, including mangroves, lagoons, natural canals and tropical jungles.

SIAN KA'AN TOUR WITH CANAL FLOAT

RETREAT OPTIONAL ADD-ON ACTIVITIES

Cenotes are unique to the Yucatan Peninsula. They are natural pits or sinkholes that formed over thousands of years as a result of limestone caves collapsing and exposing a natural pool. We will explore 2-3 different types of cenotes on our tour.

CHRISTEN BAKKEN

Christen Bakken is uncertain if she found yoga, or if yoga found her, but since 1998 the yoga mat has been Christen’s refuge. Her first visits to the mat had nothing to do with tight hamstrings or shoulders and instead, had more to do with reducing anxiety. Through movement and breath, she began to see the mat as a place to let go, and, only then, strengthen and soften in all areas of her life.In 2006, Christen took her first power yoga teacher training. She has done many trainings since then; her most recent is 500 hours with Rusty Wells in San Francisco.

Christen's specialty is weaving together the work we are doing with the body, to the work we can do with the heart and mind. Bhakti, the devotional practice of yoga and Christen’s style, asks students to look past their tight hamstrings and hips, and really begin to see what is magnificent and already perfect about their bodies. Christen’s vigorous flow classes can transform not only the way you move on the mat, but the way you move through your life. Her intention is to lift your heart and inspire you to see divinity in each moment.
