Bhakti Vinyasa, Yin + Ayurveda in the Baja
An All Inclusive Yoga Retreat
with Claire Stetina Zurbrugg and Leah Adams
6 days / 5 nights
April 9-14 2022
Come away with us to refresh, relax, and re-energize in beautiful Baja.
On this retreat we’ll practice morning meditations, devotional bhakti vinyasa, and kirtan. In the evening we unwind with yin yoga, and intentional breathwork. The integration of active and restorative practice is essential to maintain the health of all layers of our being. Each day you will wake up beside the ocean, warm desert sand, and a community of people committed to cultivating well being and connection.
The lux retreat center will be exclusive to our group. Choose to sleep in elegant adobe teepees or in a private suite with sweeping views of the water and your own private veranda.

Trip Insurance / COVID-19 Considerations:
Trip insurance is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (insurance ranges anywhere from $40-100) and is very important in protecting your investment during this time. If the retreat has to be cancelled due to COVID-19 I will issue everyone the maximum refund possible less the amount we are liable to the retreat center for your personal booking upon date of cancellation, this could range from 20-80% depending on the date and how soon the retreat was scheduled to begin. Likely the retreat center in the event of covid issues will just find a new travel date for us and we just postpone. Trip insurance ensures you will recoup all personal monetary loss.
Transportation and Pickup:
Fly into/out of Cabo Intl Airport.
Check in 2pm or later April 9

Please be sure you will be able to attend before you submit your deposit. All deposits are non-refundable except for COVID-19 considerations listed above. Payment is due in full 90 days prior to the start of the retreat. If you cancel 90 days or more prior to the retreat start date, you will be issued a refund, less your $450 non-refundable deposit. Trip insurance can protect your retreat investment if you need to cancel for covered circumstances. Due to retreat centers’ refund policies, we cannot offer any refunds, transfers or credits for cancellations for any reason within 90 days of the retreat start date.
