Second International Retreat in magical SAN MIGUEL

We will be staying in a colonial resort, few minutes by foot from the stunning historical center of San Miguel. We will practice yoga daily, including pranayama and chanting early morning before brunch and/or late afternoon restorative practice. Nathalie’s family has lived in San Miguel for decades so we have good secret plans. Creativity sessions are scheduled like those we offered in our Indian or Crete retreats... (Art supplies provided). We wanted to share this magical place where art, folk traditions and daily life are interwoven in every corner of the city. Some time will be available to rest and do shopping in the many art galleries and colorful stores.
