Yoga Retreats

with Elka Haeckel & Brett D Kehler

May 5-12, 2018

Slow down, unwind while you allow the days to ebb and flow with the tides, enjoy long strolls on the beach, watch magnificent sunsets, and sleep under the star filled nights.

Become one with nature, breathe with purpose, move with intention. Join Elka and Brett for a week to relax and rejuvenate at the tranquil Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort. Together we will disconnect from the outside world as we relax into the meditative sounds of the jungle using yoga techniques to reconnect with the 5 elements of nature to create balance and harmonize our mind, body, and soul. Pura Vida!
