February 3 – 10, 2018

Join Alek for 8 days and 7 nights in Chacala, Mexico just an hour and a half north of Puerto Vallarta.

Mar de Jade (Sea of Jade) is a retreat center that welcomes people to rest and enjoy a simple way of life. Set between a tropical jungle mountainside and the rolling waves of the Pacific Ocean, Mar de Jade is surrounded by natural beauty and absolute tranquility.

This retreat is an opportunity to practice yoga together in a beautiful, natural setting, away from the usual distractions of daily life. We will explore a balanced practice including asana, movement, breathing techniques, and relaxation led by Alek Trail. Classes will be offered in a way to accommodate a variety of levels with the expectation that students are in relatively good physical condition and have a solid familiarity with Vinyasa Flow Yoga’s commonly used asanas and transitions.  All students are (always) encouraged to modify the practice so that it meets their needs.
