Health Coach, Ayurveda Practitioner and beloved yoga teacher, Suzanne Morgan, will guide you into a calming yoga retreat to help you reset your body and mind. This week-long retreat is open for individuals to join our small group or a few friends coming together. We can accommodate up to twenty people.

Villa Serena’s peacefulness, harmony and elegance invite relaxation and rest; its pristine tropical setting offers exploration and adventure. Ocean front rooms with terraces, under coconut trees, surrounded by lush tropical gardens: the splendor of natural beauty. By the pool or at the beach, you are wrapped by lulling sounds of the waves and winds singing in palm trees. Secluded, still just minutes away from a quaint village and opportunities for exciting experiences… A perfect retreat…

During your retreat, you will release anxiety and stress and awaken new levels of energy and vitality. You’ll return home refreshed and revitalized. This is an all-levels event — beginners welcome!

You’ll have plenty of healthy, delicious food that supports emotional balance, resetting the body and clearing the mind. All meals are served buffet style with GF, vegetarian and pescatarian options. Please let us know if you have any allergies or need any food accommodations.

Please see the sample agenda below (towards the bottom of the page). There will be plenty of free time to hang out by the pool, hike, explore the quaint town near-by, book an adventure/excursion or do nothing. I will firm up the agenda as we get closer to the retreat. All offerings are optional.

How To Register

Fill out the registration form by first selecting your room type. If you are wanting to share a room, but don’t have a roommate, I can probably accommodate finding a match for you if you register early. If you are sharing a room with a friend/partner, be sure to list the name of your roommate in the registration notes. Or register both of you at the same time, by selecting 2 occupants for the double/shared room.

When you register, be sure to include your phone number. I’ll connect with you by phone to discuss your needs. Space is only guaranteed upon payment.

If you’d like to have a discussion before you register, please contact Suzanne Morgan at 703-626-8349.
