Walking On Sunshine
 Yoga retreat with Hargobind August 18 - 24, 2024
w/ special guests Mihaela Karkia, Mckenzie Dreher
 & Solveiga Baltusyte
I am so excited to introduce my most physically demanding retreat yet. In my quest to find effective and safe ways to practice yoga poses for healing and performance I wound up studying with these teachers. 
 Mihaila is a professional handbalancer. Solveiga is an flexibility coach and circus artist. Mckenzie once took my classes and now I take hers. She is a performer and incredible teacher. 

This retreat will reframe how you think about safe and effective ways to practice yoga poses. The approach will be fun, safe, powerful and deeply transformational. It will also give you a road map to drastically improve your handstands, dancers, camels, whees, splits and lots more.  For you teachers, it will drastically change how you think about poses and inspire your teaching. ~Hargobind

The mayans used to say these sacred water pools connected them to other worlds. We'd have to agree. 
Puerto Morelos is on the beach but just West is Ruta De Los Cenotes. It's a road that passes along some of the best cenotes, ancient natural water pools.  We'll take you to some of our favorites for swimming, zip lining, jumping and adventures. 


Our retreat is supported by a host of massage therapists, shamans and healers of various tradition.


Karmina is the head chef at Casa Om. She brings years of experience in creating healthy, delicious beautiful food. 

We run a vegetarian kitchen inspired by the practice of ahimsa, or non violence to the animals, as much as possible. 

Hargobind will also share some recipes from his forthcoming book Recipes for Building Community. 


Harg in his words: 

" I am super passionate about helping people fall in love with yoga, making new friends, living healthy and having fun. I've tried to follow the technique and inspiration wherever its lead me.  I built my retreat centers to be a reflection of the lifestyle. I hoped these venues would bring out the best in the clients. 


Mihaela Karkia is a professional handbalancer. She started her training at the age of six in Finland where she also graduated from the professional circus school SaSak. In 2017 she moved to Ukraine to train in the Kiev Municipal Academy of Variety and Circus Arts where she graduated from in 2021. In Kiev she also trained with Oleg Kurinskyy, learning from the best coaches and handbalancers in Ukraine was priceless for her progress. Constantly improving her skill set continues to motivate her. She started teaching in 2020. Sharing the knowledge gained in 20 years of handbalancing is another meaningful mission for her. She will lead 5 classes througout the week.

Solveiga Baltusyte

Solveiga Baltusyte is a Circus artist specializing in Aerial Acrobatics and a Flexibility coach. She started her circus career as an adult, which pushed her to work hard and learn fast to become a professional acrobat. Solveiga started her contortion training as a compliment to her aerial acrobatics career in 2017 while living in Hong Kong and since then had fallen in love with this discipline and continued to train with world renowned coaches - exploring the art of contortion further within Chinese, Russian and Mongolian Techniques. She fell in love with this ancient art form and is now teaching a unique blend of techniques to adults who want to reach a new level of body control, get rid of chronic pain and improve the quality of their life. “EVERYBODY can be flexible, but everyone is different, and therefore you just need to discover what technique your body responds to”
