Gentle Somatic Yoga Cultural Immersion Retreats:  The Ultimate Spiritual Vacation!

Each day begins with a rejuvenating Gentle Somatic Yoga class with meditation. The rest of the day is balanced with outdoor adventures and free time to explore on your own. We’ve had so much success with these customized retreats that many participants return for the experience of conscious community and also to be further inspired by a balanced lifestyle.

There is a lot of well-thought-out planning to make each GSY Cultural Immersion Retreat unique and exotic. Through ample research we discover the “insider’s scoop” into each destination to find treasures and off-the-beaten-path type of activities. For example in Bali 2016, we had custom temple clothes made for each participant and went to ceremonies that hadn’t been performed in over 100 years. In Slovenia & Croatia 2017 we had private access into the finest wineries and 5 star gourmet meals.

Mexico February 12-19, 2022 is now open for registrations! Click the graphic below for more info. This retreat will sell out quickly, so consider putting your deposit down today!

“I joined this retreat hoping that I could unwind from chronic pain symptoms and other stresses. This retreat went beyond my expectations and had incredible transformative experiences! James is an amazing facilitator, the food was excellent, and I’ve made some new friends for life!”  Cory J 

“This retreat brought me endless gifts. All of the participants were absolutely delightful. We all loved it so much so we are going back next year. James was an incredible host utilizing his limitless skills of Hanna Somatics and yoga. We all learned so much from him. I loved being in nature, unplugging from the world, and being in an absolutely magical place. Thank you for the experience. I wish it for everyone. Blessings, Caroline

“This is my 2nd retreat abroad with James.  I loved the entire experience.  The location was incredible!  The Somatic Yoga was outstanding!  My body feels much looser and happier : )  James is patient and very considerate of each person’s physical challenges; and you brought an amazing group of people together.  Can’t wait to participate on another retreat with him : ) “
