We are excited to announce our adventurous 2017 Inner Series Retreat to the Atacama Desert in Chile March 26th-April1st. We will spend 2 nights at the chic hotel, The Aubrey, in Santiago and explore this up and coming cosmopolitan hotspot, while making time to get our Salsa groove on!
There are award-winning vineyards close by and beautiful hikes and bike trips to venture out on. We will then fly together to Atacama Desert to spend 4 magical nights together at the astounding hotel Awasi Atacama.
The Atacama Desert is a plateau in South America, covering a 1,000-kilometre (600 mi) strip of land on the Pacific coast, west of the Andes Mountains. It is the driest desert in the world. Located in the ancient trading town of San Pedro the Atacama has just 10 rooms.
Our days there will be spent both practicing and exploring in our adventurous surroundings. Each room will be assigned their own guide with a 4WD vehicle upon arrival, and a built custom itinerary - whether its horseback riding, mountain biking and sand boarding, stargazing, or hiking the unique Chilean landscapes.
Visit the Moon Valley and the Death Valley. Hike to the hot springs of Puritama for a rewarding soak. See Geiser de Tatio smoking in the early morning light, or have lunch at Salar de Tala (salt flats). Discover the colors of the Rainbow Valley (Valle Arcoiris).. Don't be surprised to come across flamingoes or llamas. All just complete magic!
Awasi is famous for the delicious food and hospitality and as part of Relais & Chateaux, they offer a culinary experience featuring the best local ingredients. We will have the great pleasure to have amazing lunches out in the dessert and gorgeous dinners gazing at the stars around a cozy fire.
Inner Strength is a core-strengthening program developed from dance warm-up, Pilates, and yoga techniques. The Inner Series retreat will also have some part of the practice devoted to Dance Grooves, which is my dance choreography class where we explore the full expression of the body. FUN! As with everything, the Dance Grooves is optional…but I promise you will want to dance your heart out overlooking the inspiring surroundings.
Inner Power Flow is an athletic approach to yoga based on elements from various traditions focusing on core flexibility, breath, and deep stretching reaching to connect seamlessly mind and body. Each movement is systemically linked with breath work to train your entire body, refresh your mind, and soothe your soul.
