A note from Lana & Sara:

Yoga, in sanskrit युज्, means union. 

The synonym of peace is union. 

Our yoga practice brings us a deeper sense of peace with ourselves.  This is our path and why we are so excited to be sharing our passion for yoga with you.  A retreat is an opportunity for reflection, to open up to possibility and nurture ourselves.  With a better understanding of ourselves and our relationships, Yoga opens up the door to wholeness, so we can have more health, happiness and peace.


Whether you are just here interested or will be joining us....may your path be filled with light, love, joy & peace.
