Serita Yoga Presents:  Rest and Liberation Retreat

February 9-16, 2019

Troncones, México

Serita Colette will be leading a once in a lifetime retreat in Troncones, Mexico on Rest & Liberation.  We will be studying yogic practices of liberation through the Hatha Yoga tradition, and the power of Nidra to open to ourselves beyond limiting ideas of self to unfold into our deepest desires.  

Nidra means to draw forth dissolution.  Nidra is a yogic science that opens us deeper to what we are already calling into existence consciously, subconsciously, and unconsciously.  Often misconceived as yogic sleep, Yoga Nidra is a practice to draw forth dissolution of what we are attached to that limits our perception of our greatest reality.  The practice reveals what is already there through dhyana: concentration.

Present Moment retreat & spa resort will be our beautiful home for a week.  Known for its picturesque landscape, Troncones is a quiet beach village located about 20 miles northwest of Zihuatanejo on the coast of Guerrero, México.

Immerse oneself in the sacred ocean around the full moon, evening sangha around a bonfire, time for massage, fresh smoothies, beach play, peace and reflection.


Daily Yoga

We will be studying yogic practices of liberation and the power of Nidra to open to our deepest desires.  Dharma talks, two practices a day, time in nature to unwind from the fullness of city life, warm weather and an ocean to indulge during winter, practicing with a teacher rooted in the yogic tradition.

Serita Colette

Serita was born during the monsoon in Kerala India.  She was raised an intersectional feminist and performance artist by her single mother and auntie.  In 2009 Serita studied classical Indian dance with Kalamandalam Shiva Das. In Kerala she also discovered the healing power of Hatha yoga and a desire to continue studying the teachings of her ancestors.  

 Serita believes adamantly in the work of healing justice; “that we begin to value care, emotional labor and resilience, not as add-ons, but as central components of sustainability that restore us to life,” (Prentis Hemphill, BLM).   Through teaching yoga, ayurveda and liberation practices Serita has emboldened many of her students to bring forth their vision and power with love and gratitude for all that is sacred.  It is through Serita's sustainable practices for deeper awakening that we are healing ourselves, and each other, “a practice of freedom!” -bell hooks.
