The Practice at Playa Viva Yoga & Retreat Centre

A retreat is so much more than a vacation : it’s a thoughtfully planned invitation  to unpack from the demands of daily life and be in the fullness of daily yoga practices at a leisurely pace. It’s time away to return to yourself.

Come away with us! We are bringing the strength of our signature offering The Practice into our mornings and expanding it into softness with gentle, yin and restorative late afternoons, as we tuck into simple and elegant Playa Viva eco-resort. Classes will be lingering and in tune with the needs of students, held in the beachfront open-air studio. High quality mats and props are on-site to support us. All room accommodations are open-air and together we will be nourished with the freshest organic farm-to-table meals.

Jen Storring has been teaching yoga in studios and the Kingston community since 2008, when she completed her first Hatha training. She credits dallas as her most profound teacher and ongoing resource. Jen is known as an articulate, technical teacher who is committed to delivering thoughtful, all-levels classes with gentle hands-on attention, really great playlists and sometimes a fair bit of core work 🙂 Jen’s teaching practice continues to evolve as she deepens her understanding of what it means to be of service to students as they explore yoga and remember that they, themselves, are their own best teachers when they tune in to the deep inner wisdom that is in all of us.

dallas delahunt believes that a regular yoga practice has the power to teach us how to be more aware of our experiences, be connected to the moments, and simply be. When we practice remaining present to each moment on our yoga mats, it shows us a way of being more present in our day to day lives.  It reminds us to be kind, patient, and loving to ourselves, and in turn, to those around us.  dallas’ approach to teaching yoga is simple, accessible, and pragmatic. She focusses on creating quiet spaces for the mind to calm down amidst the movement, work, and stillness of the body. Her classes are powerful and gentle, a beautiful pairing to help you leave feeling nourished, supported, and loved.
