Discipline of Freedom

Yoga Retreat at Mar de Jade

with Sheryl Grunde and Gavin Kleiman

Chacala, Mexico

January 11-18 2020

During this week long dive into the life changing exploration of yoga,  you'll reside in a beautiful ocean setting at a retreat center that creates educational opportunities in the local community.

Yoga is an ancient Indian tradition of philosophy and introspection popularized in the modern world by one limb of the practice, hatha yoga.  Hatha yoga consists of movement and breathing practices that are used as tools to achieve greater self awareness and find the underlying calm and balance that is our innate nature, the truth beneath the chaos and fluctuation of our minds as we deal with modern life.


During this week long dive into the ancient practice of yoga, we will use anatomy, alignment, breath, and teachings from the ancient yogic texts to cultivate personal discipline, which influences our daily movements, choices, thoughts and actions to create more ease and freedom in our lives. 

Mar de Jade provides the gorgeous space in which we'll practice, three abundant, healthy, delicious meals daily, and opportunities for adventures: whale watching, hiking, snorkeling, and shopping... Massages are available as well. 

Sheryl Grunde has been conveying her love for the transformative practice of yoga since 2000. Her knowledge of the body, keen eye for alignment, and compassionate heart continue to inspire her students to reach further and go deeper.

Gavin Kleiman studied physical therapy in South Africa and yoga instruction at the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, CA. He combines manual techniques with yoga and biomechanical awareness to empower his patients to care for themselves. Outside of the office, he enjoys running in the woods with his dogs and competing in triathlons. Gavin's website: http://kandspt.com
