North Fork Yoga Shala Retreats
Here at North Fork Yoga Shala, in Greenport, we are really proud of our expanding offering of several retreats both near and far as well as the variety of workshops and trainings that we hold both with our own instructors and talented guest instructors and facilitators.
Our retreats, currently led pre-dominantly by Claire Copersino, our Founder and Director, span the globe, and range from a few wonderful days within driving or public transport distance to further afield in Mexico, Costa Rica, various locations in Europe, northern Africa and several in the planning stage that will be further afield. It is often the case that once someone has joined one retreat, they catch the bug, so to speak, and attend another .. and another .. and another. Don’t say you weren’t warned J
It is truly magical to watch new connections form on our retreats, new yoga-family bonds be created and very much a family vibe set in within the first 24 hours amongst our small, intimate groups wherever we may be calling home on our retreats. These connections then grow once back home and you now know that person who was once just a face across the studio. As a result the community and family feel of the studio just continues to deepen and expand and sweeps everyone who walks through our doors up into the glow.
Claire Copersino Yoga Retreats, trainings, and workshops are curated based upon suggestions from you as well as initiatives from our team of instructors and we always welcome your thoughts, ideas and feedback.
Amansala, Tulum Retreat
March 13, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - March 19, 2019 @ 12:00 pm| $2200
You just have to say the word “Tulum….” to feel the vibe of a tranquil, relaxed and simply stunning little town on the Yucatan Peninsula, 90 miles south of Cancun.
Tulum’s most iconic, eco-chic boutique hotel, Amansala, will be our home, right on the powdery white sandy beaches overlooking the turquoise waters and daily sunrise. Aman: meaning Peace, Sala: waters, perfectly encapsulates what it is to drop in to this home away from home that focuses on the natural beauty and resources of Tulum, where they have created simple yet beautiful rooms, a menu brimming with fresh, delicious and healthy meals and a super warm and welcoming atmosphere that is akin to a friends beach house. You will simultaneously have the experience of being indulged and pampered while restoring your body, mind and spirit to emerge feeling even better than you did when you arrived.
This will be our 11th annual winter retreat and if you haven’t experienced this before, are you in for a treat! If you are returning to Tulum you understand what it is that keeps calling us back. The beachfront studios are each unique and magical for different reasons and along with our oceanfront home, Amansala Resort, provide the perfect setting for really peeling back the layers and accessing a much deeper, more profound connection to your practice and yourself. There is no setting more conducive – all the ingredients to this location and retreat are absolutely spot on.
Amansala resort is the perfect place from which to curate your perfect retreat experience. If you’re interested in exploring, then the world famous Mayan Ruins are a short 10 minute bicycle ride away, as are a variety of gorgeous, unique cenotes a short trip away. Town is 10 minutes in a taxi, or 30 minutes on a bike and the Sian Ka’an biosphere reserve where you can explore by truck and boat are close by to the south. Meanwhile, if you’re all about removing your shoes upon arrival and not putting them back on until its time to return home, then this is the place for you. This is barefoot beach life at its best, with on-site extraordinary mayan healers, massage therapists, intuitive healers and spa services to punctuate your yoga, beach-walks, naps, divine meals and some wonderful times with your fellow retreat peeps recalibrating to your natural rhythms that are perfectly in-sync with all that surrounds us.
