Island Yoga Retreat: July 27 – August 1, 2017

Friends! We are so thrilled to share with you some very exciting news for 2017!

As many of you know, we opened our island home, Island Yoga, on January 1. The Island Yoga Retreats are going to be truly special here; held in our beautiful studio, a sacred community space we have been manifesting for several years, with lodging at the charming Costa Esmeralda just around the corner. Meals will be served in our wrap-around garden (we have an actual fireplace, fairy lights, and a tiki bar!) comprised of a healthy and delicious mix of island and modern cuisine, prepared by our in-house chef.

In addition to practicing yoga twice a day, we will offer SUP Yoga, a sunset sail, tons of beach time, a hike on the north shore and a visit to the natural pool.

This will be a heart-centered week, focusing on your innermost longings; a perfect place to deepen your practice and set your intentions for what’s ahead.

Deposit is $500. Email experience@islandyoga.com to sign up!





  • 5 nights at Costa Esmeralda

    Hi, I’m just wondering if there are any spaces left on this retreat for a single person please?

    Thank you.

  2. Liz says:

    Could we come for just 3 days or do we have to do the full retreat?

  3. Amanda says:

    Hi there,

    I was just wondering if Rachel will be teaching at the summer retreat? I know she’s due any second!

    • rachel says:

      Hi! Yes, I will be teaching at all of my retreats at Island Yoga. Dennis will teach, as well 🙂 Are you going to join us? 😀 Feel free to send any other questions directly to experience@islandyoga.com for a quick response!

    • rachel says:

      Hi Amanda,

      Yes, Rachel will be teaching at the summer retreats, with the help of Dennis 🙂 If she or Dennis absolutely cannot teach a class due to needing to tend to Baby, then one of our fantastic resident teachers will fill in for that class. Feel free to reach out to experience@islandyoga.com with any other questions!

      Love, Team Brathen

    Traveling from far away, obviously. Should we plan to fly into Aruba a day early so that we can start in AM on the 27th? And what about the last day? Plan to fly out that day? Or plan to spend the full last day there and get a hotel near the airport or something for that evening?

    • rachel says:

      Hi! Our retreat begins the evening of the first day, actually. And it ends on the final day around late morning. If you email experience@islandyoga.com, you can get all the answers and more for this retreat 🙂 Hope you can join us!

    • rachel says:

      Hi Valerie!
      Great question. The retreat kicks off the evening of the first day, July 27, and it wraps up late morning/early afternoon on the final day, August 1. It’s up to you whether you want to extend your stay outside of the retreat dates. If you email experience@islandyoga.com, our team will give you tons of tips on how to set up your most ideal flights 🙂

      Love, Team Brathen

  5. Olivia says:

    Hi, I was wondering if there is an age requirement for this retreat? Thank you ☺️

    • rachel says:

      Hi Olivia!

      Usually our minimum age is 11. If this person is able to be in the yoga classroom respectfully, and they are with you at all times, then there shouldn’t be a problem. Please feel free to reach out directly to experience@islandyoga.com for a quick reply for any other questions. We hope you can join us!!

  7. Claire says:

    Hi! Just curious if we need to be skilled in yoga to do this. I’m fairly new to it but would love to do a retreat!

    • rachel says:

      Hi Claire,

      Great question. You do not need to have an advanced yoga practice to join the retreat. Rachel and Dennis are excellent with offering modifications for the varied levels in the room. Feel free to send any other questions directly to experience@islandyoga.com for a quick reply. We hope you can join us!!
