RETREATS: The Redefining Balance retreats are sometimes considered more of an adventure camp with a focus on human powered activity and an awareness of the environment we are all balancing in. These retreats include yoga, slacklining, acroyoga and thai massage and also make use of beautiful surf breaks and climb sites to literally take all of these practices into new terrain while balancing on a surf board and vertical walls of rock. Hosted in stunning outdoor locations, these retreats also include environmental awareness activities to educate and help preserve the oceans and climbing areas that we travel to during the week.
WORKSHOPS: Redefining Balance is an exploration into the core center of the body that allows us to take the yoga practice off the mat into new forms of balance. With an emphasis on core strength & awareness as a foundation students will learn that balance is relative to what you are practicing on. Through the inclusion of AcroYoga we will introduce the therapeutics of Thai Massage alongside the strength and power of Acrobatics as students learn how to base, fly and spot each other in inversions and arm balances on other peoples, feet, hands and knees. Playful in nature, Redefining Balance introduces powerful tools for communication and support for individuals who are looking to deepen their practice through the support and connection of working with others, especially in more advanced postures like inversions, arm balances and backbends. Location permitting, the redefining balance workshops will also include slacklining as students transition to balancing on a one inch thick piece of climbing webbing. Above all else, this program will ignite a sense of exploration and adventure as we find that balance is the result of our energy, focus and ability to connect to others & the environment.
Spotting is the art of listening so fully that we can serve our partners by offering only what is needed to set them free. Focusing on an awareness of alignment and balance, students will work with each other to learn how to safely spot and practice acrobatic poses such as handstand, forearm stand and headstand so as to experience the joy and therapeutic benefits of being inverted. Come flip your perspective upside down through this exploration into balance as we learn to trust our spotters and ourselves to become more empowered and joyful.
Intended for students who are already beginning to practice inversions on their own- some prior experience with yoga, gymnastics or acrobatics is a pre-requisite to attending this workshop.

Hey Rincon I'm making a last minute decision to sell my car before I leave.
The battery got a bit funky last night and I'm not in a place to deal with it since I am packing everything up. It's been a great car for 3 years but Scott and I bought a truck this season that we are keeping so I don't want to invest too much time/money into the escort before I leave since I have a solid one already. The marbete is good until June, it has a new starter ($190) & radiator ($130) and the engine is solid. The transmission is wearing and you need to keep on top of the transmission fluid level (we refill it about once a month) or else it has trouble shifting up hills. If you are interested please make an offer (minimum offer $500) and you can check in out today or tomorrow. The local mechanic Oz Car as well as Nefty in Aguada have worked on it so they can help ya out if you wanna switch out the battery or anything like that.
