Ex: Where are you located? We are very near the southern tip of the Baja peninsula in Mexico – about 15 miles north of Cabo San Lucas on the Pacific coast. For more specifics, check out our map.
Ex: Are you close to the ocean? Our retreat center is on beachfront property. Walk out our western gate and on to a mile-and-a-half stretch of golden sand. Listen to the waves crash as you drift off to sleep.
Retreat leader Kim Stetz: Gravitating towards the healing aspects of yoga from the inside out, Kim feels mindful yoga is a vital part of daily living and anyone one can participate and have a yoga practice. After some 20 + years of practice, in 2014 Kim opened Savasana Station, an organically grown community yoga studio in the heart of the East Village, NYC. Her strong background and training in therapeutics lends diversity to students who are recovering from injuries or in need of healing. Daily meditation practice is as much a part of Kim’s life as brushing her teeth and bathing.
