Living Fully - A Caribbean Yoga Retreat
with Kristin Leal
Island: St. Lucia
Date: January 15-22, 2011
Accommodations: Stonefield Estate Villa Resort & Spa
Retreat Details:

Come to play
Come to reclaim your joy
Come to reconnect to the source
Come to dive deep into your practice, immersing yourself in asana, meditation and Kriya techniques

While it may be easy to find your bliss in this dreamy location as you sink your toes in the white sand while the crystal blue waters lap at your ankles....we will share techniques that will help bring that connection back into each moment of your living.

Our morning yoga practice will include asana that will truly be tailored and individualized to suit all levels of practice and energy. In our evening practice we will share different mantras, kriya techniques, pranayama and meditation from our Tantric lineage.

Fill the rest of your time enjoying meals offered by our private chef, exploring the nearby town of Soufriere or choose to relax at one of the two nearby beaches (Both are less than 10 minutes away ~ one by foot and the other is accessible by a complimentary daily shuttle). Soak in your private plunge pool, luxuriate in the main pool or simply sway in a hammock and indulge in your stillness.

Our retreat coordinator will be arranging our included sunset sail. to make arrangements for any additional Adventures and Activities as well as help you to book your 1 hour complimentary massage at the newly built Bamboo Door Spa! I so look forward to sharing this experience with you!

Yoga Instructor: Kristin Leal

Soon after moving to New York City in 1993 to pursue her dance career Kristin's friend dragged her to her first yoga class at the old Jivamukti yoga school. While she had no idea what anyone was talking about she immediately fell in love with the poetry of meditation in movement. She studied with her first teachers Sharon Gannon, David Life, and Katchie Ananda for many years trying to discover and understand herself and this transformative practice she stumbled upon. She hungrily went to every workshop and studied with every teacher that passed through town and completed several teacher trainings with Adrienne Burke (a senior Jivamukti teacher), Rodney Yee, and Betsey Downing PhD.

In 1995, she graduated from the Swedish Institute for massage therapy and became a licensed massage therapist and reiki practitioner. She has additional certifications in Thai massage, neuromuscular and myofascial release.

She has been honored to lead many workshops and teacher trainings around the country and in 2005 Kristin created the Kaya Yoga 200 and 300 hour teacher trainings to share her passion for the miracle of the human body and the liberating potential of movement. She has been blessed to graduate over 100 students to date.

In 2006 her life changed yet again when she met her teacher Yogiraj Alan Finger. She is beyond thrilled to have been able to work alongside this yogi master helping him to further translate his teachings and create the Ishta Marma Point teacher training.

She is a co-author of the book “The Yoga Fan” which has been reviewed as being “an indispensable guide for the serious yoga student”. Kristin is currently writing her second book on the physical and energetic bodies with her Guru Alan Finger.

Kristin's classes are a challenging mix of strong anatomical alignment and powerful vinyasa flow all while maintaining a sense of humor and a connection to the divine within. Her classes are influenced by everything from quantum physics to her new love of the trapeze but most of all the beautiful teachings of all of her teachers and students who continue to inspire her every day.
