Love yourself this Valentine’s Day with a yoga-themed kayak trip in the beautiful Florida Keys. Burnham Guides is bringing on a yoga instructor for this very special kayak camping expedition in the Lower Keys.
Call it “kayak-asana.”
Paddle across crystal clear Caribbean-blue waters to a primitive island we’ll have all to ourselves for yoga practice, kayaking, snorkeling, bird-watching and walking the long, deserted beach to find your special place to meditate. We'll also do an optional beach clean-up.
The miniature, endangered Key Deer will be our campground companions.
Kripalu-trained instructor Joanna Ezinga will help us greet each morning with an asana to awaken the body and mind in preparation for the day ahead. At the close of the paddling day, our yoga practice will include gentle movement and stretches to release tension in the lower back, hip flexors, and upper body.
Throughout the day, small opportunities for mindful paddling will be offered, such as linking the paddle stroke to the breath, or “kayak-asana.”
This Valentine's Day inspired yoga/paddle retreat will use nature, yoga, meditation, mantra, and journaling to tap into the Heart Chakra, reconnect us to compassion and empathy, and create a pathway for openness and love.
Singles and couples welcome. Beginners welcome as well. Paddling distances will be moderate, 5-10 miles/day, to allow time for yoga practice. Those who want to paddle more certainly may!
Sea kayak and gear, camping gear, all meals, 4 nights of camping, kayak instruction as needed, guide service and yoga sessions are included. Airfare is not included.
