Rivkah is a hatha, vinyasa, and yin teacher. See her bio here. We will practice hatha flow, or vinyasa in the mornings and restorative or yin in the evenings. All levels of practice are welcome. Please bring any props that you like to practice with. If you are coming from far away don’t worry, we will work together to figure something out!

Do I need to be good at yoga?

No – all you need to bring is an open mind, a willingness to learn and to listen to your own body.

What is SUP? SUP yoga?

Stand up Paddle board is a lovely sport accessible to anyone who can swim! We’ll do a quick intro to paddling for those who have never done it before, and we’ll have two SUP yoga practices. We anchor the boards for SUP yoga so we don’t float away.

What if it rains?

Then we get wet. Part of planning gorgeous retreats with nature is accepting nature in all its forms. Please bring clothing for all conditions and a wetsuit if you know you get cold. We will do our best to proceed with scheduled activities, and will only cancel activities if your safety is in question.
