Shake the Dust Yoga & Energy Awareness Retreat

Shake the Dust Yoga & Energy Awareness Retreat

From February 25 to March 4, 2023

Join us as we “Shake the Dust” so to speak through self-exploration and expansion through physical asana, meditation, and energy work. Our journey takes place at Xinalani – an exclusive Yoga Retreat Center nestled along the coast of the emerald ocean in the lush jungle surroundings of Puerto Vallarta. We will work through creative yet approachable chakra focused yoga sequencing twice daily meant to invigorate and restore, bringing balance to the mind, body and spirit, accessible to all levels!

In addition to yoga, you will have the opportunity to learn more about reiki and Human Design. Reiki is a natural hands on healing technique that uses “universal life force energy”, the energy that is flowing abundantly around and within all living things. Human Design is a system that blends together concepts found in the Chinese I’Ching, Western Astrology, the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, and the Chakra system. The unique energies that comprise your body graph are determined by your natal chart information. Together, these energies weave the story of who you came here to be and what karma you came here to correct.

MINI PHOTO SESSION As a group, our retreat experience will be documented. Opt in to receive a mini individualized 15 minute photo session at a location of your choice. Return home with professional vacation photos of you in paradise!

Collectively we will move, feel, breath, and bond, enjoying all of the beauty that connection offers

About the teacher

Shake the Dust Yoga & Energy Awareness Retreat

Nikki McFadden

Yoga Teacher

Strength and Flexibility 'kaleide' creating Grace. Nikki is graceful: a beautiful balance of meditation, laughter, tears and heart. Nikki joyfully loves to share her deeply thoughtful practice with others. With an extensive training background in competitive gymnastics and professional dance, Nikki's love of motion, curiosity about the human body, and desire to heal led her straight into the arms of yoga, where she first experienced real connection.

Yoga, with its emphasis on breath and mindfulness, brought equilibrium across the entire spectrum of her life. Nikki guides students through a physical practice that pushes beyond one's body and drives into the deeper metaphysical properties we all possess.

The strength cultivated in her classes helps one to grow his/her asana practice, but that same strength can be translated directly into all aspects of life.

Shannon Demorest

Yoga Teacher

As a yoga teacher and Reiki Master practitioner, Shannon uses her background in boutique fitness and child development to bring a playful, community focused approach to her classes and offerings. Shannon specializes in private group yoga classes for everyone from professional athletes to bachelorette parties.

As a nerd in all things subtle body energy, Shannon implements reiki and breath work into her classes to bring connection to the mind, body and spirit, and strives to make each of her classes accessible for every-body.

"Taking the time to marvel in your own breath is equal parts humbling and empowering. We see the ocean or the stars and can so easily be in awe but when we grow to understand that each inhale and exhale is just as incredible, self love is ignited in a way that far surpasses our physical body."
