Linda Winnick & Shakti Yoga Present
A Caribbean Retreat for Mind, Body and Soul
Download Flier
Island: St. Lucia
Date: March 15-22, 2008
Accommodations: Villa Capri
Yoga: Twice Daily

Classes will be held next to the villa's private pool, overlooking the calm waters of the Caribbean Sea . They will concentrate on manipulating the postures and breath to cultivate vitality and to encourage strength and flexibility of the body.  Throughout this retreat there will be a focus on how the asanas effect anatomy and physiology: basically how yoga can transform and heal our lives. Beyond that, Linda will work to help each student develop their fullest potential of mind body and spirit.

Linda has developed her own style of yoga and of teaching that is not bound to any specific lineage or tradition but embraces almost all. Linda creates unique sequences (vinyasa krama) and no two sequences are ever the same. Her classes are based on the ability of the student, the season and the time of the day. She synthesizes the beauty of form and healing potential of alignment of Iyengar and Anusara, the fluidity and grace of Ashtanga and Jivamukti, and the strength and integrity of Forrest Yoga. Linda has studied with senior teachers of the above mentioned traditions and styles as well as Sivananda.

Adventures & Activities
Rodney Bay Shopping and Beach Excursion
Enjoy a morning strolling through the shops, art gallery and venders market where you might find the perfect souvenir to remind you of your Caribbean experience.  Or if you prefer, just relax and take in some Caribbean sunshine on one of St. Lucia's longest stretches of golden sand!

Pigeon Island National Park

This 44 acre site was once an island accessible only by sea.  A causeway now joins Pigeon Island to the mainland. Spend an afternoon exploring the grasslands, dry tropical forest and quiet beaches.  Visit the interpretation center to learn more of the Pigeon Island story.  Take in the views from the British built forts at the summits of the islands where on clear days you can see all the way to the neighboring island, Martinique.
Friday Night Fish Fry and Street Party
The village of Anse la Raye is home to a weekly "Seafood Friday" which caters to both tourists and locals, serving steamed fish accompanied by plenty of drinks and music in a rustic, local setting.   A true Lucian experience and a great way to spend our last evening!
