Island Bliss in Aruba:
with Rachel Brathen

Island: Aruba
Dates: March 4-10, 2012
Accommodations: Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa
Retreat Details:

Rachel Brathen, Manchebo's Yoga Director, will personally be offering this retreat with twice daily yoga. With a variety of fun and innovative classes and workshops, optional paddle board yoga and exciting island adventures, this week will make sure you go back home relaxed and rejuvenated. Retreat participants will have plenty of opportunity to enjoy the beach, the crystal clear waters and the spa in between. Practicing at the ocean front yoga pavilion, letting the sound of the waves guide you into the present moment, watching the sun set on the horizon...What better way to enjoy your vacation?

For this retreat week, a light breakfast of fresh fruit smoothies will be served daily before the morning yoga session. Following the morning yoga session a substantial, healthy brunch will be served. The Welcome and a Farewell dinners (both three course and including a glass of wine) will give us the opportunity to dine as a group while the other nights you can choose to eat at one of the two restaurants at Manchebo or, if you are interested in venturing out and trying one of the other fabulous restaurants Aruba has to offer you can take advantage of the "Dine Around" package.

The concierge staff will be happy to assist you in planning other activities for you during your stay such as island touring, shopping, scuba diving, sailing, playing golf, snorkeling or enjoying rejuvenating spa treatments at the exotic outdoor Caribbean-Balinese spa facility.

Yoga Instructor: Rachel Brathen

Swedish native Rachel Brathen has been practicing yoga since she was a young teen. After graduating school she traveled to Costa Rica and it was here that she found the joy of incorporating yoga into her everyday life. Deepening her yoga practice and also taking her first steps towards teaching, she ended up moving to Central America where she spent years exploring the intricate studies of yoga and spirituality.

After moving to Aruba early 2010 she now teaches yoga full time on the island. Yoga Alliance Certified, her classes are a mix of Hatha and Vinyasa Flow, integrating alignment, core work, and breathing techniques with basic poses and creative sequencing. Each class is designed to energize the body, cultivate a meditative consciousness, and give greater vitality and health

Rachel provides every student with a space to safely play in the art of yoga. This Island Bliss Retreat is the perfect time to dive deeper into your practice and enjoy the rejuvenation that yoga brings.
