“Many people have mis-conceptions about retreats. Some think they are tied to a particular religion or are very rigid and restricted. Some may be, but not mine. My retreats are a combination of good nutritious (and delicious!) food, fun but challenging yoga practices, some heartfelt soul searching and rest. You will deepen your practice, make new lifelong connections with new friends and leave feeling stronger, healthier and more relaxed than you’ve ever been.” Shawn Shaw

“The retreat to Pura Vida, Costa Rica provided me an opportunity it deepen my yoga practice and receive instruction on alignment and proper stance. All of a sudden, I was doing arm balances and asanas I never dreamed of doing! Shawn is a truly amazing woman and wonderful yoga instructor. The group dynamic was also amazing! I felt very comfortable just being me and completely transparent, knowing I had the support of the entire group. I would highly recommend doing a retreat with Shawn to anyone looking to deepen their yoga practice and make a personal transformation."

re-treat: A place affording peace, quiet, privacy or security

Here's what students who have attended Shawn's vacations have to say...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It's beautiful in this place, so quiet, so still
so perfect to be alone, so perfect to share

When I practice I feel like an open window
all of you are the wind that keeps the door ajar

“Tom and I loved traveling to Italy with Shawn to participate in a yoga retreat at Locanda delle Gallo in the hills of Umbria. It was the perfect vacation~ a beautiful site with healthy and tasty food and wonderful sessions of yoga in the morning and afternoon. I felt as if I was nurturing my head, my body and my spirit. We took early morning walks in the hills overlooking Locanda and went for drives to the nearby Italian hill towns to take in the local culture. It was a priceless experience!”

~Tom a student at the 2010 retreat
