Yoga and your True Nature
Yoga Practices for a Calm and Happy Life

If you're looking for a yoga retreat that offers you tools for finding your true nature - Happiness -
here it is. Anna Laurita invites you to 6 days of Yoga Practices for a Calm and Happy Life

I want to be happy and you want to be happy.

During this yoga immersion/retreat you will learn new tools for happiness through daily yoga practices ( vinyasa and restorative), dharma talks, guided meditations, pranayama, mantras, mudras, affirmations and more. In addition you will enjoy calming activities in nature, including a full day visit to our local Botanical Gardens (and a private yoga class in the gardens) . You will also enjoy a Stand Up Paddle (SUP) Yoga Class with a beach lunch to follow.

During the course of the retreat you will have ample time for yourself too. Many afternoons will be free for naps, beach time, and exploring. You will be in the historic downtown which is perfect to enjoy dinners in the many amazing restaurants and sunset strolls on the Malecon.


• Morning satsang/dharma talks with intention setting for the day - tools for happiness.

• 2 daily yoga classes (complete sessions) that include intentions, pranayama, mantra, mudra, asana, and relaxation techniques. One dynamic practice and one restorative practice daily.
