NYE FT. LAUDERDALE RETREAT
If you’re anything like me you’ve woken up on New Years day with a hangover and thought, wow this is a terrible way to start this year. Our annual NYE Men’s Naked Yoga Retreat is meant to counter that. Join us Friday December 28th through Tuesday January 1st and enjoy the company of other men who enjoy mindful discussion, yoga, delicious healthy meals and of course, being naked! Danimal will lead daily classes and workshops designed to have you feeling your best for 2019. In between classes we’ll relax by the pool and hot tub in our private backyard, head to Sebastian Beach to meet the locals or enjoy many of the other shopping, dining and attractions South Florida has to offer. SOLD?! Sign up below. If you have more questions read the FAQ section or feel free to email me.
What’s included in the price of my trip? The price includes accommodations, meals and yoga from Friday December 28th through Tuesday January 1st. It DOES NOT include transportation or excursions.
When do I arrive/depart? We’ll have our first group practice together Friday December 28th at 8pm. In the past students have had to work a full day and had to miss the first class, which is not a big deal it’s usually very informal. Check out is 11am on Tuesday January 1st.
What if I don't know anyone going?
Lots of guys come on their own and make amazing friends on the trip. Friends who come together often find it's an amazing time to bond with one another.
How do we get out there?
Flights are available from BWI, DCA and Dulles to Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood, Miami International and Palm Beach Airports. I plan to compare prices between all three. Google Flights is a great way to do that.
Can I drink alcohol?
Yes, while the only alcohol provided will be a champagne toast on NYE (there will also be a non-alcoholic alternative) you are welcome to purchase and bring alcohol on the retreat as long as you respect those who choose not to drink
I have dietary restrictions, will I be able to eat anything?
Yes, we can work with any diet
What's the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen situation like?
The house is totally modern, clean, updated bathrooms, full kitchen, wifi, air conditioning, everything you need. It also has a pool and hot tub in a very private backyard where we’ll practice. Three queen beds are in separate bedrooms and then we’ll set up a little camp out area in the living room for the sofa beds. We’ll share two bathrooms but in the past this has never been a problem.
It looks like we’re sharing beds, is that the case? Yes. Unfortunately finding a house in South Florida on NYE is hard. I’ve been assured by the owner the beds are sizeable, including the pull out beds. Also by sharing we’re saving a lot of money that can go towards excursions and travel costs.
What’s the deal with food? Meal price is included in the cost of the retreat, however we’ll be splitting up into meal teams to cook dinner each night. I’m using a grocery delivery service to have all the food delivered so you won’t need to shop, but at some point you’ll be on cooking or cleaning duty. Though this might sound like work it’s often a fun way to get to know the other guys on the trip and show off any culinary skills you might have.
How much yoga are we doing? I'm worried I'll get worn out.
We have classes every morning and evening, but they're not always full asana practices. Some are restorative, partner and thai massage classes. Also if you need sleep or down time you're welcome to opt out.
Is it worth the money?
YES! Everyone who has come on this retreat in the past has had the time of their life. You'll come back having not only had a fun weekend, but also feeling refreshed and energized.
What happens if I end up not being able to go? $100 of your purchase goes to a non-refundable deposit. Because the holiday season is so crazy, your remaining fee will only be refunded if you cancel a month in advance (November 30th). Sorry I can’t be more flexible but when people cancel I lose money and these retreats become difficult to do.
