About This Event
Join this BEACHFRONT YOGA RETREAT in the perfect Union of Elements - nature, luxury, fun, delicious, and healthy - Create a memory!
We will be blessed to practice yoga in a stunning location by the Sea of Cortez. This is a quiet, green and blue paradise - accompanied by delicious flavors, authentic people, a touch of freedom, sweeping breezes, and crystal clear water.
A yoga retreat is a wonderful way to deeply focus on yourself: watching, reflecting, resting, and learning. Now let's add into the mix: exploring, playing, making new friends and having great fun.
La Ventana on the Sea of Cortez is a well-known water sport destination that is quickly attracting fun and sun seekers to its unique and beautiful location. Locally based activities include: Kite and wind surfing, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), mountain biking through the ancient cactus forest, snorkeling with gentle whale sharks, and, of course, fishing - which is how the Mexican Baja began to grow from the 1970s.
La Ventana is approximately 30 minutes from La Paz, the capital city of Baja California Sur. La Ventana means "the window" in Spanish. The view to Cerralvo Island (officially Jacques Cousteau island) is stunning, framed by the L-shaped land extending out into the sea. The area has been made famous to and by wind chasers who enjoy kite and wind surfing. Over the years these sport enthusiasts have transformed La Ventana and the surrounding areas from a sleepy local village to a bustling and developed community.
The ethos is focused on living well in a simple and natural, active and diverse area. Here you will meet born and raised locals, transplants who have come to work in the growing community, and an abundance of US and Canadians who live here for weeks or months during the winter.
The area villages include La Ventana, El Teso and El Sargento. Surrounding the villages are the beautiful ancient cactus forests, continuous beaches and the Sea of Cortez.
Many in the community have developed and maintain a large network of trails for walking and mountain biking. One notable and unique feature is the ability to make a natural hot spring bath by digging out the sand on one of the beaches.
Federica Clemente is a Yoga Alliance certified instructor who has practiced and studied Mysore Ashtanga, Iyengar and other forms of yoga for more than 15 years.
With a background in professional dance, craniosacral therapy and shamanic healing, Federica brings to her retreats a wealth of background information in the mechanics of alignment, dynamic movement, energy flow and effective healing techniques.
She is also a Gestalt Counselor. Gestalt is an amazing and effective therapy that helps to empower you in your journey to living a happy and fulfilled life.
Most importantly, Federica surrounds her retreats with an attitude of fun, playfulness and open acceptance. The end result is usually an incredible journey of self-exploration, deep processing, and meaningful experiences that you can carry with you out of the retreat and into your daily life.

The beachfront house is in a private, secure compound surrounded by lush palms. It is situated right on the best kite surfing beach. You can kiteboard right from the back door. If you don't kiteboard, it is ideal for watching the action up close. When siesta calls, take a break and lounge on a hammock under the trees.

Susan Hardwick-Smith February 01, 2019Not just a yoga retreat!
I was searching for something new and healing to do over Christmas and found Frederica’s Women’s art of silence retreat in Ostuni through retreat guru. Through some magic of the universe I found myself in exactly the place that I needed to be with exactly the right teacher to move me towards transformation in some of the most important areas of my life. With a group of incredible women who became deep friends through this eight day experience we certainly enjoyed Frederica’s incredible talent at teaching yoga -but most transformational were the one-on-one sessions that she offered in emotional release using Gestalt therapy techniques. She is a truly gifted Gestalt therapist and I got more out of three one-on-one sessions with her than in years of traditional psychology. She was able to intuit and meet me exactly where I was in the moment and help me to dig down to the deepest roots of my emotions around issues that have been keeping me stuck for 50 years. I found myself completely uninhibited and free to release emotions that I have held onto for my whole life, not only through her sessions but through creative dance, music and art. The structure of the day allowed for plenty of connection and conversation as well as lots of walking in the beautiful surroundings and even a visit to the most gorgeous private beach. The food was beyond compare and the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable. Evenings out by the fire sharing stories and burning our demons written on crumple pieces of paper, as well as her amazing massages were other highlights of the retreat. I’m definitely going to return to meet with Federica again -and she is available to help clients on their journey through Zoom sessions as well which is a remarkable service. I returned home after this retreat truly a different person with a lighter view on life and inability to let go of being right around some key issues in my life .
