About the Retreat
Join Leigh Ann Handel for a week of sun, surf, and savasana. Each full day will include a mid-morning Forrest Yoga class and a sunset Yin Yoga class. The week’s sequences are designed to counterbalance each other in order to safely create space in the body and mind. Come prepared to spend quality time with yourself.
About Leigh Ann
LEIGH ANN HANDEL began practicing yoga in 2006 and began teaching yoga after her first training with Ana Forrest in 2008. After exploring multiple yoga styles, particularly Forrest, vinyasa flow, Bikram, and yin, she’s found that Forrest Yoga is her yoga home. Leigh Ann aspires to teach yoga as a tool to heal the body, mind, and spirit. In her “off the mat” time, Leigh Ann likes to read as much as possible and cook adventurously.
Casa Om has 10 beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms, a spacious and well equipped yoga room, swimming pool, a rooftop dining area and 2 kitchens.
