Yoga Adventure Retreat
Jon Burras and the Little Wellness Company are presenting our first Yoga Adventure Retreat in several years.
I am proud to announce that this spectacular week-long yoga retreat will take place on the enchanting island of Catalina, just a short boat ride from the Orange County, California coastline. You will be guided into a mixture of yoga classes and experiences, taste the local cuisine and be delighted by the many activities and adventures that present themselves to you. You can also just relax and enjoy a week of unwinding and pure peace with a massage or a quiet day on the beach.
You will have the opportunity to come together as a community with your fellow yogis and yoginis and grow deeper within yourself. You will be challenged to look deeper into yourself and set new commitments for your future. Whatever happens on the yoga mat is only a small part of the entire experience.
This trip will entail six nights and seven days of wonderful warm Indian Summer experiences. Expect the weather to be wonderful and most of the tourist to be gone. The ocean water temperature is still warm enough to take a dip in after a sweaty yoga class.
We will begin our six-night odyssey on Sunday September 15 at the Dana Point Harbor where we will travel on the Catalina Express ferry (about one and a half hours in length) and dock at the ferry terminal in Avalon, Catalina. We will then proceed to walk a short distance to our hotel, the Metropole, where we will be staying for the week.
A simple multi-purpose room will be our meeting room for yoga and other group events. A continental breakfast will be served by our hotel staff to get you started in the morning. Guests will be on their own for lunches and dinners. There is a wide assortment of restaurants and eateries all within easy walking distance of the hotel. You will have a chance to taste many different flavors the town of Avalon has a chance to offer.
On day seven (Saturday September 21) we will convene at the boat terminal and set sail across the channel and back to Dana Point harbor.

Single Occupancy: $2550

Open to yogis from athletic beginners to advanced practitioners who are in good health with at least one year of continuous yoga practice. You must be willing to participate in a community event with a wide variety of growth-full yoga and insightful sharing of ideas.
The yoga practice will be challenging yet conscious. We will attempt to travel the middle path on our journey. Athletic beginners might feel challenged and advanced yogis might have the opportunity to slow down and dedicate themselves to the fundamentals.
Required: One yoga mat and at least one blanket
Optional: straps, blocks, additional blankets, eye pillows (There are no props at the meeting venue)
We will meet most days three times per day. We will have a strong Vinyasa flow yoga practice in the late morning, followed by lunch and a rest period or swim in the ocean. We will convene again in the late afternoon for a focused yoga class where we will work on fundamentals. Dinner and a stroll along the Avalon boardwalk will follow. We will meet again in the evening for a discussion or group event. There will be plenty of yoga time, plenty of rest time along with catching up with friends or spending the afternoon at the local spa getting a massage.
