Basunti North India Retreat

with Bristol Maryott
October 29 - November 9, 2018
Basunti Retreat Center, North India


Join Bristol at Basunti, nestled deep in the jungle overlooking a lake in a wildlife preserve. There are a few small villages nearby but you are immersed in the deep calm of rural North India. We’ll have yoga twice daily (a mix of more vigorous and more restorative classes) in the marble yoga shala overlooking the lake. We’ll practice meditation on the roof listening to the songbirds or under the moonlight. You’ll feel yoga happening off the mat as well: when you watch the sunset over the jungle or the Himalayan Mountains break through the clouds. Accommodation is in spotless, twin double rooms with balconies and private bathrooms. The food is yummy, fresh and vibrant: salads from the Basunti gardens, fresh baked bread, fragrant curries, homemade samosas and ripe fruits. There’s plenty of time to rest, read in the hammocks, swim in the lake or pool and explore the local villages. We’ll also do an optional day trip to Dharamasala, home of the Dalai Lama and a great place for shopping and mountain scenery. The Basunti website has more images to give you a better idea of just what a special and gorgeous place this is!


The price for this 12 day, 11 night retreat is $2150. That includes all yoga, food and lodging! Transportation (flights as well as transfers) are not included. To save your space, you can pay a $600 non-refundable deposit. Retreat-goers must get an Indian visa and travel insurance (this is easy & Bristol will help you!). Our cancellation policy is a 50% refund until 3/31/18, after that your spot is transferrable but you must find someone to take your place.

Costa Rica Retreat

With Bristol Maryott & Carrie Cooper

February 28 - March 6, 2019


Encantada Ocean Cottages


Carrie Cooper and Bristol Maryott are delighted to announce a magical retreat to Costa Rica this upcoming spring! It might be gorgeous outside right now but come February 28th it will be cold and grey here in New England, possibly with slush! So we hope that February 28th - March 6th, 2019 you are with us beachside at Encantada Ocean Cottages! 

This 7 day yoga retreat will feature Ashtanga and Gentle Flow / Jivamukti yoga with both Bristol and Carrie. Both teachers are extremely experienced, and have both been teaching for over a decade. We’ll have the chance to dive deep into our yoga practice twice a day, using the retreat setting to workshop postures as well as go a bit deeper into the other limbs of yoga such as meditation and pranayama. When we’re not practicing yoga, we’ll get to relax on the beach!  We’ll fuel our practice with three vibrant, fresh, vegetarian meals a day, which are all included. Cost is $1800, with lodging in double rooms, food and yoga all included in that great rate. Also included is the airport transfer from San Jose. The flight to San Jose is not included in this price. For an additional charge, it will be possible to arrange massages as well as surf lessons and jungle tours. 

There are currently only 3 spots available on this retreat so if you are interested you should sign up immediately! The rate is for double-occupancy. It is possible to get a single room for $2800. It is also possible to have a discounted rate ($100 off) if you and two of your friends are interested in a triple room. 

The cancellation policy is a 50% refund until 12/31/18. After that, your spot is nonrefundable but can be transferred to another yogi (you are responsible for finding a person to take your place).
