In yogic philosophy, everything in nature is connected through five elements that all come from & return to one another, including us. Join me for a stay & some elemental yoga play at nature-friendly Eco Lifestyle Lodge resort in majestic Tent Bay!

For six days – from February 13th to 18th, 2020 – you can enjoy two element-driven yoga classes a day, two farm to table meals a day, connecting with nature via hiking and outdoor classes & gorgeous, unobstructed views of one of Barbados’ most photographed beaches right from your room! & Since the retreat spans Galentine’s/Valentine’s Day weekend, you could make it even more special by bringing your bestie or partner to share in the experience at this sustainable, Green Globe certified resort with you! Here’s a more detailed overview of what you’d get out of the trip:

☼ 6 days, 5 nights in a shared bed (2 people per room/bed) with an ocean view, open air patio, & kitchenette that includes complimentary coffee & tea – some rooms have a hammock on the patio & one is even a full apartment!

☼ transportation to & from the airport

☼ locally sourced, fresh made breakfast & dinner each day

☼ one element-driven yin yoga class with meditation & one element-driven vinyasa flow class on an open-air yoga deck each day

☼ a complimentary hour long massage

☼ a swag bag filled with my fave eco-friendly, organic & vegan products

☼ a trip to the animal flower cave where you can descend into the cave & go for a swim

☼ a guided hike through gullies & beachside cliffs

From now until July 12th, you can take advantage of Early Bird pricing, which reserves your spot early on & guarantees you $250 off the full price of the retreat! It also gives you more time to pay off your balance 🙂 There are four different types of rooms, so the prices per person for all of the awesome things listed above are as follows:

Queen Room: $1400
King Room with Hammock & Kitchen: $1425
King Room with Patio & Fridge: $1425
King Room with Hammock & Full Kitchen: $1450
Queen Apartment (ONE available!): $1500

To take advantage of the discounted price, just email me to request a registration form, then I’ll send one over to you for you to fill out & send back with a non-refundable $500 deposit by July 12th. Payment plans are available for the rest of the amount, but no matter what we agree on as far as that goes, the amount must be paid in full by October 12th. If you can’t quite make your initial deposit by July 12th, you can still sign up! The prices just go up by $250 after that date. So starting July 13th, the prices would be:

Queen Room: $1650
King Room with Hammock: $1675
King Room with Patio & Fridge: $1675
King Room with Hammock & Full Kitchen: $1700
Queen Apartment (ONE available!): $1750

The process would be the same: email me requesting a registration form, then I’ll send one over to you for you to fill out & send back with a non-refundable $500 deposit. Payment plans are available for this option as well, the amount just has to be paid in full by November 12th.

All yoga classes & excursions are TOTALLY optional! So if you bring a friend or partner who doesn’t practice yoga or YOU just don’t feel like doing it or any other activity at whatever time, you can skip it with no worries! You would both still have to pay the retreat price in full, but there are also tons of other options like horseback riding, SUP, surfing, & pottery or basket weaving workshops available for you to try at an additional cost.

& Just to be clear, the price does not include: your round trip airfare to & from BGI Airport (round trips from almost anywhere right now are only around $500-600!), lunches (you’re encouraged to explore the island during the day), any of the additional activities, spa services or excursions, drinks outside of water with meals & any additional taxes & gratuities.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’m a beginner. Will I be able to do your classes? YES! Alignment is one of my specialties, so no matter where you are in your practice, you can feel good knowing you’re safe/stable in your body & you’ll know exactly where to go. Also, again, ALL classes are optional! So you don’t have to do them if you don’t want 🙂

I really want to come, but I’m kind of afraid to come alone… It’s totally normal to feel that way! But don’t let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game, as they say. Even if you come on your own, I’m very sure you’ll make new friends to explore the island with (we also have some group excursions planned!), awesome memories & you’ll leave having made great progress in your personal yoga journey!

I really hope you’ll decide to join! It’s going to be a truly amazing experience & your energy would add so much to the retreat. Email me at heyryanash@gmail.com if you’d like to sign up or if you have any questions that I didn’t cover here! Look forward to hearing from you!
