Puerto Rico Yoga and Ayurveda Weekend Retreat


Event Highlights

  • Experience this unique program seeped in deep physical, emotional and energetic healing, detoxification, or rejuvenation therapies all formulated just for you. On our seaside location on the beautiful island of St. Croix, US Virgin Islands we create a special program to support health, peace and gentle healing on all levels of existence. Daily consultations, therapies and individual workshops are shared to support not only transformation during your time here with us, but sustainable healing to take with you as you venture home.
  • Program includes a fresh breakfast of local fruits, coffee and tea followed by a movement class overlooking the ocean.
  • Free time midday to explore the beauty of the island or relax poolside at your private villa.
  • Afternoon Yoga and Ayurvedic classes will be offered as well as Ayurvedic Spa services including massage, steam therapies, facials and oil treatments by our Pancha Karma Specialists.

      Panche Karma Bliss

    Carlisle and Zaplin are passionate about everything they touch. I have worked with/been a student of Carlisle and have enjoyed watching her growth and empowerment over the years. Zaplin seems a perfect compliment to her. This is The Team that greets you on the mat, wherever you are, without judgement, with compassion and enduring love. I completed the 200hr & taken part in several successive Yoga Trainings, each time deepening my awareness, knowledge and ability to share. This past Spring I was blessed to have a guided panche karma with them. Through their vast wisdom, insightful and attentive care I was guided through a complete purge of old samscaras and emotions that were continuing to hold me back. I have experienced a surge of creativity, boost in my yoga business and a drive to help others, all whilst feeling balanced, keeping my heart and mind free, open to possibilities. They individualize your experience and inspire you to be sensitive to your own daily changes/needs. I look forward to each time our paths cross and the continued knowledge and love they impart.

      Personal, real teachers that guide you to your path

    I've worked with Carlisle and Zaplin across various retreats for Yoga/Ayurveda as well as for Panchakarma. The style in which they share their cumulative knowledge has been inspiring and transformative for me on so many levels. I have always had an interest in Yoga (asana) and Meditation but it took studying with them for me to truly understand the purpose of practicing. Something was missing for me when it came to Yoga, until I met them. Because of their teachings, I understand Yoga as a way of life, and in my experience, there are no two better guides in the process. They have studied for years and years and continue to. They live and breathe their practice. Their extensive knowledge and understanding allows them to help students find balance and health through Ayurveda, which is much needed in truly practicing Yoga. They are able to meet each student where they're at to help them prepare to practice Yoga from the ground up. They help students find their own practice and work with them so that it's sustainable, personal and safe. Carlisle and Zaplin deeply honor the traditions of Yoga and Ayurveda and it comes through in everything they do. Their teachings are authentic, traditional and effective. Whether studying Yoga and Ayurveda or undergoing Panchakarma, working with them requires discipline, dedication and hard work. And for me, it's been life changing.

      Incredible 200hr Yoga Teacher Training

    I received my 200 hour yoga teacher training with Maha Vidya two years ago and my experience was 100% positive. The course material was presented clearly and the training gave me the confidence and experience needed to deepen my personal practice and lead asana classes. Carlisle and Zaplin are passionate and devoted teachers of Yoga and Ayurveda and are highly attuned to individual and group needs. They effectively create a safe and nurturing container for deep self study. I greatly look forward to the opportunity to study with Maha Vidya again.

      Pancha Karma

    Just went for a long weekend to complete Pancha Karma. It was amazing. Both of my hosts were very attentive and catered the program to my unique needs. It was a wholesome and incredible experience. They were knowledgeable and took the time to discuss any concerns and questions!

  • Michael Fensom   April 11, 2019

      Pancha Karma with Maha Vidya Yoga and Ayurveda

    I've done three Pancha Karma processes with Carlie and Zaplin over the past year and have found each to be uniquely transformative. Collectively, the experience of each Pancha Karma has helped to dramatically shape me as a person. I have cultivated deepened awareness, positivity and a new sense of being through the Pancha Karma processes that has illuminated my life. And have let go of elements in my life that were no longer serving me. Personal growth has accelerated as a result. While each Pancha Karma experience is different, a consistent is the careful guidance of Carlie and Zaplin. They are attentive, deeply knowledgable and insightful throughout the process, and care about my experience and wellbeing conscientiously. They strike the ideal balance of making sure I am secure in the details of the process while also allowing my experience to unfold individually. I can say confidently that my personal experiences during these Pancha Karma processes are enhanced significantly by Carlie and Zaplin's devotion throughout. My appreciation for Pancha Karma — and my yoga practice as a whole — is tied to my appreciation of Carlie and Zaplin's mindful instruction.

      An Absolute Jewel of a Find!

    I have been a student/client of Carlisle and Zaplin for more than 5 years. With expert guidance, gentle nurturing and highly skilled treatments, they have steered me toward a practical and individualized path to health and wellness. I have been inspired by them to rekindle a long-lost light of daily meditation. It’s been a major game-changer for me. One of their most powerful strengths is an uncanny ability to accurately pinpoint areas of my mind and body that might require attention. I can honestly say I’ve experienced deep transformational healing every single time! Nutritious meals, nature-bathing, daily meditation and movement practices are among the many experiences served up with so much warmth, love and authenticity on their glorious farm in Maine!

      Absolutely amazing.

    I couldn't have asked for more thoughtful, kind, and respectful teachers who were willing to share all their information with me. All I had to do was pay attention and ask. I absolutely love these two, and will be back to train with them many times over. Thank you both for all your kind words and your thoughtful lessons. I can't wait to see what the future holds in my practice.

    My Experience on this retreat was life changing. Every resource, knowledgeable information, assessments in practices and more provided by the Teachers was profound, beautiful and most importantly precious to apply in my life. I am very grateful to have invested time of my life in this retreat, I now feel that my life has multiplied and my interest in Yoga and well being is pure. Thanks So Much!

Thank you!
