Ak'boL Yoga Retreat Center is inviting all locals to attend
San Pedro's First Annual Yoga & Wellness Festival: July 9-16th @Ak'boL.
A week of yoga+meditation+breathing+cleansing+nutrition...and much much more.
Lose weight=Rejuvenate!
Learn the different dimensions of Hatha Yoga and Meditation
along with other tools to lead a healthier lifestyle.
Cleanse body, mind and spirit.
Open to Beginners, all levels, all body types...no experience necessary.

Why Yoga? it is relaxing, energizing, good for balance, strength and flexibility which enhances your overall sensitivity. Your intuition sharpens which reinforces your self-trust and trust in the universe. Yoga is for All. All bodies, young and old...beginners and all levels welcome. No judgement or competition with Self or others. Yoga is not a religion. Yoga leads to Self realization=We are One=One love.

Yoga is not Yogurt! Yoga is union with your true nature....a way of moving into stillness in order to experience the truth of who you are. Yoga is a science of Self Realization.
(mary-everyone thought I as referring to "yogurt" when i first moved here! thought that would be attention getting)

*Iridology: The eye is the window to the soul. Iridology is a beneficial tool that allows us to observe the entire body non-invasively. By reading the different colorings and markings in a magnified iris, an iridologist can interpret what each sign means and understand how each system and organ is functioning. The history of the body and certain things that have been inherited also allow us to understand the problem behind the problem. Have a stomach ache? Iridology shows us what is going on internally and causing it! You will leave with a complete understanding of how your body is working for you and how to improve what's not. * Private sessions with Rachelle will give you a detailed understanding of how your body is functioning plus a personalized nutrition plan to help you achieve your ideal body.
*Ayurveda=the science of self healing=food is medicine/medicine is food. The basic principle of Ayurveda is to prevent and treat illness by maintaining balance in the body, mind and consciousness through proper drinking, diet, and lifestyle, as well as herbal remedies.
