This Retreat Is For You If…
You’re looking to connect with likeminded, creative individuals who are interested in becoming their best selves possible by knowing themselves.
You’re ready for an adventure and once-in-a-lifetime experience through carnival Trinbagonian style & the exploration of intentionally focused breathing via the practice of yoga.
You need to take a step back from being in your life so you can work on your life in order to share your life with others for the betterment of all life.
You want to learn basic yet essential yoga and pranayama techniques, along with herbal teas, life affirmations for cleansing and maintaining as healthy a being as possible.
You’re inspired by travel, different cultures, and cuisines, and meeting other beings being human; learning and sharing your stories.
You believe that taking time to experience, slow down, and connect is just as important if not more important as the “hustle”.
You know that nothing great was ever built overnight.
You are interested in or have questions about carnival and yoga and your place in the scheme of things.
You’ve always wanted to go to Trinidad & Tobago or already love it and this is an opportunity for more!
You have an open mind, heart, & spirit.
You want to explore leaving our world better than how you first inherited it.
This Retreat Is NOT For You If…
You’re a very nervous traveller.
You’re afraid to try or don’t enjoy new foods, meet new people and cultures.
The unexpected nature of travel (things happen!) and being in a different place easily upsets or frustrates you.
You aren’t flexible and don’t enjoy “going with the flow”.
Please know you can make this retreat before booking it. Due to the involved logistics and up-front costs, this retreat is 100% non-refundable unless you can find someone to take your place.
We strongly advise you to purchase third-party travel insurance in the unlikely event of missed flights, natural disasters, strikes, or other unforeseen events in your life. We cannot emphasize this enough!
We will do our best to accommodate personal dietary restrictions that aren’t medical. If you have a serious or life-threatening allergy, please let us know prior to purchasing so we can check with the inn/apartments/& food providers to see if your requirements can be accommodated.
We can accommodate vegetarians and will do our best to offer vegan menus where feasible.
If you have any questions after reading the details, don’t hesitate to respond to this email and ask away! I am so deeply excited to meet each of you as sistas & brothas - my guests, and I can’t wait to see you & serve you there!
While we will provide you with as much support & hospitality to enjoy your stay in sweet, sweet T&T(Trinidad & Tobago).
We do not promote any guest businesses or accounts. Yet, you are welcomed to network and build your brand with other participants.
We have years of experience in yoga, & it’s practice, life philosophy, herbal teas and its benefits for an effective efficient life, and life skills solutions for an ever-changing world.
We will share our continuous expanding skills, strategies, and hard-won experience with you, teaching and sharing with you in a few hours what took us years to learn ourselves.
Remember before and after this retreat your commitment to Knowing Yourself is a lifelong process, and that in an easy and relaxed manner is my modus operandi for success.

I can’t wait to meet you all and play!
