Salutations in the Sun:
St. Lucia Yoga Retreat with Checka Antifonario

Island: St. Lucia
Date: February 18-23, 2012
Accommodations: Villa Capri
Retreat Details:

Mid-winter is the perfect time to relax and recharge on beautiful St. Lucia, to delve deeper into your yoga practice, to reconnect with old friends and get to know new ones under the island sun.  Enjoy an invigorating solar yoga practice each morning and wind down your day with a blissful slow flow in the late afternoon.  Join Checka for extended meditation sessions, and/or schedule a private yoga session to focus on a personal goal.  We will also get our creative juices flowing with journaling and craft sessions. 

Embrace your adventurous side and explore the beach, snorkeling, horseback riding, and much more.  Lounge at our villa's private pool under the sun.  With so much to choose from in this incredible tropical setting, you can fill your day from sunrise to sunset, or opt to spend the whole day with your book and a hammock!!  All group yoga and meditation, accommodations, airport transfers and meals are included in your retreat package price. 

Our retreat coordinator will be available to recommend and organize a full range of additional "a la carte" adventures and activities as well as body treatments once you arrive.

Please join us for a wonderful week together this February!

Yoga Instructor: Checka Antifonario

Breathe, expand, challenge and nurture yourself, discover something new, and maybe even laugh a little (or a lot!) - these are the intentions that Checka holds for her yoga students each day.  Checka is deeply honored to share the practice of yoga, and passionate about her work.  She teaches an upbeat Vinyasa Flow class, offering fresh and creative sequencing along with compassionate and skilled assists and adjustments.  She provides smart and safe pathways to deep openings and peak poses, so students feel both exhilarated and supported in their practice.  Moments of challenge and intensity are woven together with times of deep relaxation to keep yogis curious, engaged, and full of breath!

Checka Antifonario (E-RYT, RCYT, RCY Facilitator) is a full-time experienced adult yoga instructor and children's yoga specialist based in the greater Boston area.  She also runs Radiant Child Yoga Teacher Trainings both locally and throughout the U.S.

Checka 's yoga journey began in 2006, when she moved from Cambridge, MA to the Big Island of Hawaii to live and work at a yoga and wellness retreat.  In this setting of stunning natural beauty, she began to deepen her own practice, along with her love and appreciation for the strengthening and healing nature of yoga.  After two years of serious practice, Checka traveled to Costa Rica to complete her 200-hour Yoga Alliance certification with Jacqueline Heisel of Frog Lotus Yoga (based in North Adams, MA).  She then returned to the Boston area and has been teaching full-time ever since.

Checka has completed additional training with Shiva Rea, Shakta Kaur Khalsa, Alice Senko and YogaThree founders Chanel Luck, Bonnie Argo, and Roberto Lim.  She continues to be gratefully inspired by the guidance of her yoga mentors as well as the lessons she learns from her students each and every day!
