YOGA & MEDITATION SUPER POWERS 

with Kim Stetz

Retreat for 5,6, or 7 nights! 


Savasana Station Destination retreats find luxury accommodations combined with eco-friendly environment so you can have your cozy blankets, peace & quiet and be light with your carbon footprint. 

"I don't spend my hard-earned dollars easily but I'm so glad I invested them in this retreat. I came into the week feeling physically and emotionally broken, and I left with my heart opened - in both senses - and on its way towards a better place. Most importantly, I took away new elements of a solid basic practice in both yoga and meditation that I've been able to integrate into my regular life. Also, Kim is her own best advertisement! Not only does she practice what she teaches, but don't you all wish you looked like that, whether you're 24, 44, or 64? yeah i thought so. :) [i know you probably won't put this on your site, but it's true!]" Andrea Johnson - Environmental & Political Activist

We choose our destination venues carefully. From the moment we arrived at Prana Del Mar, we experienced a warm, welcoming energy. Our driver greeted us at the airport and took us for a short 40-minute drive to Prana Del Mar where Eric the owner (and friend of Kim Stetz) greeted us, fed us and gave us a tour of the grounds. Our luggage was handled by porters and placed in our rooms. So easy! We knew immediately that we wanted to come back to this special place with our retreat tribe!

 

DESTINATION

Savasana Station owner and talented yogi Kim Stetz will guide this week-long retreat designed to help you reconnect to your mind and body.  We'll be practicing mindfulness and learning techniques to develop our kindness and wisdom, while enjoying the serenity and natural beauty of this unique beachfront yoga center.

If you would like to drink alcohol on our last night together, drinks may be purchased and put on your personal account. Please note, True Wellness is not a vacation with some yoga and meditation. True Wellness is a practice-based week of healthy asana and breath techniques, compassion exercises, mindful eating, drinking and playing, wise intention, and cultivating kindness to yourself and others.  If you're unsure whether you're ready for this retreat, please contact us.
