Can you imagine doing your yoga poses while balancing on a paddleboard? Apparently it’s all the rage according to the Los Angeles, California-based Travel Yogi, a specialist in international yoga retreats and yoga adventures that perhaps has gone overboard this time with her next scheduled yoga retreat in Aruba from April 6 to 13, 2013.
“Warm and inviting island destinations are always popular retreats, because the rejuvenating properties of water and yoga go hand in hand,” said Jennifer Hoddevik, The Travel Yogi founder and owner.
The action in Aruba takes place at a boutique beachfront hotel with a seaside yoga pavillion (http://thetravelyogi.com/adventures/aruba/). “One of the highlights of the trip will be pushing the envelope and letting go of your fears through the unique experience of standup paddleboard yoga,” said Hoddevik.
Included in the seven-day, $1,649 per person rates are two yoga classes a day with instructor Maria Santoferraro (Daily Downward Dog blogger), stand up paddleboard yoga class with Rachel Brathen, sunset catamaran sailing with snorkeling excursion and snacks, daily breakfast, two hotel lunches and dinners and two restaurant dinners in town, plus transfers to and from the airport..
While the retreats are yoga focused, other destinations offer Yoga Adventures with the opportunity to practice yoga while engaged in other adventure travel activities.
A list of international and domestic destinations for 2013 include but are not limited to Aruba, Galapagos, El Salvador, Santorini, Maui, Cabo, Tulum, New Zealand and Vermont. Guests practice and play with some of the yoga world's best known instructors: Annie Carpenter, Kathryn Budig, Giselle Mari, Jennifer Pastiloff and Ashley Turner to name a few.
