New Adventures Retreat with Zahra and Zoha
August 30, 2015 – September 5, 2015

New Adventures Retreat with Zahra and Zoha at Casa Om provides a special opportunity for her to share her two loves, travel and yoga. Yogis will have a new external experience; adventures in Mexico with ancient ruins, cenotes, and swimming with whale sharks during the full moon, as well as new experiences inside your body, with daily yoga classes. The workshops provided will also deepen your knowledge and understanding of the yoga and how it relates to your body, mind, spirit, and life.

Zahra’s final intention is for all the yogis that retreat with her to fully enjoy all their new experiences in Mexico with a luxurious all-inclusive trip. It is important to her that our physical needs be met as well. Meals and yoga mats are provided, maid service daily, and luxury rooms with tile basin showers.

About the Teacher:

Zahra Vaezi

Zahra Vaezi, an avid yoga aficionado, has been practicing yoga since 2005. She fell in love with Bikram Yoga after her first class. She started work study immediately, she knew then that the yoga would be a permanent fixture in her life. She attended teacher training in 2011 and Zahra’s commitment and dedication continued on from there. She purchased a studio in 2013 located in Arlington, Va. She is now expanding her reach as a yoga teacher internationally with Casa Om, the first of many yoga retreats focused on introspection and personal growth.

Adrian Andres — (Inversion workshops)

Adrian has been practicing yoga for seven years. In 2009 he spent three months in India, acquiring his certification in traditional Hatha yoga. Adrian loves being upside down, he currently teaches inversion workshops at Bikram Yoga Arlington as well as his former schools. He loves seeing the growth of students from all levels, whether they are a beginner overcoming the initial fear of being upside down or more advanced, working on pressing up from “crow”. Most recently, Adrian started exploring “Acro Yoga” aka partner yoga. He continues to study all different forms of yoga, and simply wants an opportunity to let his love for yoga shine and spread at the New Adventures Retreat at Casa Om.
