with instructors Nancy Boler and Silke Schroeder

10-17 April 2010

Winter in Wisconsin

YOGA: Yoga classes will be held in the yoga studio at Villas Shanti. The studio is spacious, screened, equipped with fans, and surrounded by palm trees and flowers. Props – mats, blankets, straps, blocks – are provided.
The morning classes will be more vigorous, the afternoon classes gentle or restorative. The classes are geared for students with a minimum of six months yoga experience. Please contact the instructors, Nancy or Silke, with any questions regarding class level.

ACTIVITIES: Between classes there will be ample free time to relax poolside or on the sparkling white sands beach, just a two block walk from Villas Shanti. The world’s second largest reef is just 200 yards offshore, and the snorkeling is spectacular.

Daytime activities, arranged by our hosts, may include: snorkeling, exploring cenotes ( cave-like natural wells), massage, touring nearby Mayan ruins of Tulum or Coba, or shopping in Playa del Carmen. Activities fees are not included in retreat costs.

ACCOMMODATIONS: Villas Shanti is located in the small, beautiful fishing village of Puerto Morelos, 30 minutes south of Cancun. Each double room has tiled floors, bathroom with shower, and kitchenette. All rooms are screened, have fans and air conditioning, and overlook the central courtyard with freshwater pool. Daily maid service and bottled water are provided for each apartment. Overflow housing is within a five minute walk of Villas Shanti.

MEALS: Your yoga vacation includes an incredible brunch daily, as well as a welcome dinner the night of arrival and farewell dinner the Friday prior to departure. For those who enjoy cooking, small markets in town offer an array of tropical fruits and vegetables and staple items. There are also many restaurants in town, offering excellent variety of cuisine.

TRANSPORTATION: Arrange round-trip airfare to/from Cancun. If possible, please arrive at Villas Shanti by 6 pm on Saturday April 10, in order to attend the welcome dinner at 7pm.
