Yin and Restorative Yoga Retreat – Sept 2019
About This Event
Envision yourself enjoying sunny days, white sand beaches, palm trees and the tropics… This is your destination for your “Disconnect to Reconnect” in our rejuvenating Yin and Restorative Yoga Weekend experience! You get to deepen your practice in a safe environment while reconnecting with Self and re-balancing your body mind, and spirit.
While recharging at our beautiful retreat in Boca Raton, you are welcome to enjoy daily meditation and yoga classes, or even sit in on our YTT 200hr yoga school’s in depth yoga teachings. Otherwise, feel free to just bask in the sunshine and relax in our hot tub and resort style pool. You will receive healing therapy sessions of massage and acupuncture included in your package.
At Zen Den Yoga School and Retreats we teach Sadhana Yoga: the Yoga of Spiritual Practice and the asana practices of ashtanga-inspired vinyasa; sivananda hatha; gentle chakra balancing hatha; yin yoga; and restorative yoga flows. Our approach is experiential, contemporary and eclectic. We bring to life the ancient teachings of yoga through accessible spiritual lessons still relevant today.

Indulge in the experience of yin and restorative yoga to truly deepen your practice both physically and spiritually. During your days with us you will gain a deeper understanding of yourself by tapping into the subtle energy body in the poses. You will loosen your joints, clear toxins, and by relaxing the active mind you will find greater ability to connect with your intuition. Within the asanas you will learn grounding meditations and visualizations to improve health and balance emotions.
Zen Den Yoga School and Retreat Center provides the yogi and yogini with a safe and nurturing environment to grow and practice the yoga lifestyle. We are not your average yoga retreat, we adhere to the true meaning of the word yoga: to yolk or bring together in all aspects of the eight limbs of yoga.
Your time of Disconnect to Reconnect can be enjoyed in beautiful meditations, expansive de-stressing yoga practices in our yoga shala or outside on our yoga decks, relaxing massage therapy, balancing acupuncture session, even stand up paddle board yoga along the Inter-coastal waterways (optional add on: Sunset SUP excursion/add fees apply $70; or full yoga class on the board $100), and topped off with our beautiful tropical sunny weather! What else could one ask for?
Ira and his wife Valerie have built an incredible experience offering guests enlightening programs to dive into their own personal and spirit development and wellness just 1 mile away from the ocean. The school offers an on-going 200-hour yoga teacher training program, you can feel free to sit in on these lectures, documentary films, and other school activities.
