Manny and Rose Medina have been living in this region for most of their lives. They know the land for its healing herbs, trails and helping spirits. They have been leading retreats in this area as well as throughout the U.S., Mexico and Canada for over twenty years. With the combination of this blessed land, natural hot springs and serene, quiet, expansive atmosphere, they have marked this retreat center as one of their favorite places to gather for healing retreats.

Reema Datta was born into a family of yogis. She was first introduced to Shamanism in 2002 during a trip to the Brazilian Amazon. There she realized that the roots of yoga are shamanic and universal. This is the fourth Yoga and Shamanism retreat Manny, Rose and Reema will offer together

"The yoga with Reema helped move stuck emotional attachments. It's amazing how breathing a certain way, using imagery, and flowing in a specific sequence breaks up and releases the emotions. Manny and Rose emanate such a beautiful, peaceful, gentle, humble spirit. I've never encountered anyone like them. The deep sounds from the drums, the songs, rattle shaking, stomping my feet into the earth, and moving around the fire in a circle was freeing."
