Get ready to feel rejuvenated inside & out with Yoga, healthy food, nature, vitamin sea, our inclusive approach to asana, like-minded people, and Kathy’s Island Retreat center. In this retreat the practices will be accessible to all yet deep enough for the experienced Yogi. Some sessions will be fully Yin (relaxing) while others will be Yang (building, toning) and or include other elements from our personal practice (meditations, breath work). We look forward to having you with us. Read more about us below or book a discovery call here.


Kathy & Ruth

EXPLORE the functional approach to Yoga through yin and yang movement, breath work, meditation, and educational workshops to help you dive deeper

LEARN about yourself. In addition to daily Yin Yang Yoga practices there will be three workshops that dive into the many layers of being: physical (functional anatomy), mental (establishing the mind & emotions) and existential (discovery of your core limiting beliefs).

REJUVINATE through the process of taking care of yourself in a way that is hard to do in the day-to-day hustle. Eat good food, hydrate, move properly and gather with like minded people to get back to your life feeling rested, renewed, and inspired.
