Destination yoga retreats offer a complete experience

of rejuvenation, rest, contemplation and pure fun. The

opportunity to go somewhere warm and beautiful, do yoga

twice a day, enjoy local cultures and all the amenities of a

tropical island is a total mind*body*soul healing experience. The opportunity to share the retreat with others offers an experience that you can continually draw upon for inspiration. You can kick start your yoga practice or learn for the first time. We work with any injuries you may have offering a safe place to challenge yourself while remaining within your limits.


Our goal is to offer you the ultimate wellness experience in the most beautiful destinations on earth.  Try one of our organized retreats or let us assemble a tailored event for you and a group of family or friends. For more information on tailored retreats please contact us for a custom itinerary.

In addition to being a certified yoga and pilates instructor; Layah is an accomplished holistic healer specializing in Swedish massage, Shiatsu, Acupuncture and Aromatherapy.


“ I was introduced to yoga/pilates as a beginner in 2009. Layah’s ability to understand where people are at and their body’s needs in a class is a rare gift.  A retreat with Layah has effects that can last for months to come.” K. Korchinsky, Toronto Canada
