Studio Retreat to Maya Tulum

Join us for a studio retreat to Mexico next Spring!
 
The team at Southern Om is excited to announce the details of our first annual Spring Retreat to Maya Tulum, Mexico the week of April 18-25, 2015.
 
Join Pace & Sarah Beattie and your fellow students and instructors for a week-long retreat designed to offer relaxation and rejuvenation in the tropical setting of Maya Tulum, with daily yoga and meditation practices led by SO instructors.
 
This resort offers delicious and nutritious meals, spa services and excursions as well as tranquil villas and beautiful beaches to create the ultimate vacation getaway. This is a wonderful way to celebrate our SO community and what we hope will be an annual tradition at the studio.
The cost per person will range from $1,500 to $3,000 depending on the type of housing selected. Single and double accommodations are available. Airfare to Cancun, Mexico is not included and is arranged individually by the student.  Transfers to and from the resort are available for $40 each way. A $500 deposit will be due upon registration, with an early bird special of one complimentary spa service for anyone who pays their deposit prior to December 1.  Final balance will be due February 15.
If you are interested in going on the retreat, please contact Sarah Beattie at sarah@southernom.com. Postcards are available at the Front Desk containing additional information, but please SAVE THE DATE and start planning now for a Spring getaway for your mind and body!

Back Care Workshop

Back Care Workshop

*Space Still Available*

Sunday, July 27 from 1-3 pm with Silica & Sarah Oliver

This will be a full-body experience blending directed effort, release, and attention to bring us closer to full, healthy functioning in the spine. The spine is our central point, the basis for everything we do in our bodies, but we can become disconnected to it in one or multiple areas, manifesting as pain/restriction in the spine itself, or in the major joint areas--hips and shoulders.

Join Southern Om teachers Sarah Oliver and Silica Larkin as we explore the 5 principles of re-engagement and awakening of the spine and the relationship of major joints to the spine for maximum suppleness, health, power, and ease.

Equipment needed: yoga mat, towel and water. Cost is $25.  Appropriate for yogis at all levels.

Sign up online or at the Front Desk.
