Are you itching to travel and ready to shed the challenges of the past year (or two)? We have just the retreat for you! Immerse yourself in an untouched tropical oasis as you dip your toes into the warm ocean water, filling your depleted self back up with this deeply relaxing experience (big sigh as you let go…). Nourish and Rejuvenate through delicious meals, all-levels Yoga and Qi Gong practices, enriching self-care sessions and camaraderie with new and old friends. Let go of the past and fill your cup with joy and peace.

Annie Elson E-RYT 500, Owner/Director of Yoga Village in Arroyo Grande, CA

I fell in love with Yoga the first time I stepped onto a mat in 1993 and have been voraciously studying ever since. Passionate about Restorative Yoga and all of its benefits, I was inspired to study with Judith Hanson Lasater and became certified in 2009 through The Yoga Tree in San Francisco.
Numerous trainings and certifications later, I am now a 500- ERYT, owner / director of Yoga Village on the Central Coast of California, lead Yoga Alliance Teacher Trainings as well as Yoga retreats throughout the world.
I am committed to making Yoga safe for every BODY, always introducing the most accessible version of each posture first before offering more advanced options. I am moved by how Yoga changes lives on every level ~ body, mind and spirit. I believe that while our practice begins on the mat, what we do with it in our everyday lives is the true essence of Yoga.
This is the second international retreat co-led by Holly and me. Our synergistic energy and passion for our practices create a magical retreat experience for participants.


Holly Padove Certified Qi Gong Instructor, RYT-200, Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist

My lifelong quest for balance led me to Yoga, Tai Chi and meditation in my mid- 20’s. I found solace from my fast-paced life in the practices and also inspiration from the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda.
Realizing my dharma was in the healing arts, I became passionate about natural health and wellness, becoming a massage therapist in 1992, and a Yoga Teacher in 1999. I also fell in love with the infinite wisdom of Ayurveda, earning a degree as a Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist in 2004.
In 2012 a friend encouraged I to attend a Qi Gong workshop. That weekend the gentle, yet powerful movements of Qi Gong set in motion yet another path. I went on to train with Holden Qi Gong, receiving my teaching certification in 2013.
I also became certified as a Yoga Nidra facilitator in 2019, and have led retreats around the world for the past five years.
I currently teaches numerous weekly Qi Gong and Yoga classes, offers Ayurvedic workshops including training Yoga Teachers, and offer personal Ayurvedic consultations.
I live on the beautiful Central Coast of California with my husband, two large dogs, two kittens, a horse, two goats and eight chickens! I also love to travel the world, cook healthy meals with fresh picked veggies from my garden, ride my horse, and be active in the great outdoors.
