THE CURRENT: Ride the wave into Puerto Vallarta #reSOULutionsretreat2019

Join me for my second venture with the ReSOULutions crew and escape with us to wander the sands of Mexico in Puerto Vallarta’s Xinalani (pronounced "she-nah-lah-knee "), a pristine private beach peninsula. This sophisticated sanctuary nestled in nature is the ideal setting, balanced equilibrium between modern accessibilty (WiFi, in-house spa service, & delicious, dining arrangements) to a relaxed, remote locality for sweet, secluded serenity. At the heart of this coming escapade: The Elements. A retreat, in the very essence, to withdraw the senses to simplicity, an exploration within the essentials to honing the crux of your matter, the heart. Rather than expend energy towards the elaborate and extravagant, focus on the fundamentals: the air to breathe, the sun to touch, the water to taste.

A Short Story.

Though born in Honolulu, Hawaii, I was initially raised in Miami until my family relocated to San Diego, where my parents have resided for over 25 years. Though I distinctly recall thoroughly enjoying my first yoga class at a Hollywood gym, circa 2007, it wasn't until five years after I became much more consistent and dedicated with my practice. It wasn't until several years later that I realized the extraordinary power of Yoga beyond a physical plane. Subsequently, I made a conscientious decision to unravel myself from the constraints of a career in a structured setting to pursue an alternative lifestyle. I set forth to acquire my teaching certification through Yoga Vida in the winter of 2013.
In constant pursuit of personal growth and unadulterated happiness, when not on or near a mat, I'm most likely getting an adrenaline kick out of a range of fitness-oriented pursuits (an admitted SoulCycle junkie, alternating workouts with Barry's, Fhitting, boxing, HIIT style classes), engaging in an assortment of cultural/social activities (e.g., live music/dance/theater performances, appreciating artistic endeavors, savoring culinary delights), or simply taking a moment to be in awe of anything or anyone, anywhere at any given moment. -Loren Yandoc
