6 Night Soul Reset Yoga + Meditation Retreat
Join Kiara McBain for a Soul Reset in paradise. Everything about this retreat has been curated for you to leave all your stressors behind and reconnect with yourself. Seven days and six nights provided for you to feel nurtured and nourished.
Morning yoga practices will be active & sweaty to get you in your body and drip away residual stress. Evening practices focus on grounding, slowing down and enjoying lots of therapeutic Thai Massage-style adjustments.

HAVING HEALED HERSELF OF POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER THRU THE USE OF YOGA AND COMPLIMENTARY MODALITIES, KIARA NOW AIMS TO BRING A STYLE OF YOGA TO OTHERS THAT CAN OFFER HEALING FOR LIFE'S STRESSORS. KIARA COMBINED THE METHODS THAT HELPED HEAL HER TO CREATE KI YOGA.
WITH TANTRA ROOTS, KI YOGA EMPHASIZES THAT THE WAY OUT IS THROUGH.THE WAY THROUGH IS THROUGH THE BODY AND ITS SENSATIONS. ASANA ALIGNMENT IS ULTIMATELY KEY IN TEACHING THIS; HELPING THE STUDENT BUILD A STRONGER MIND-BODY CONNECTION BY EMPHASIZING PROPRIOCEPTIVE AND INTEROCEPTIVE AWARENESS. THE BETTER CONNECTED ONE IS WITH THEIR BODY, THE MORE ATTUNED THEY ARE TO WHEN STRESS ARISES AND HOW BEST TO MANAGE IT.
BREATH WORK IS PARAMOUNT TO KI YOGA. USING NEUROHACKING BREATH TECHNIQUES, STUDENTS ARE GUIDED IN HOW TO USE THEIR BREATH TO SHUT OFF THE STRESS RESPONSE AND TURN ON THE REST, RESTORE, DIGEST RESPONSE (OR PARASYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM). IN YOGA PHILOSOPHY THE BREATH IS ALSO CALLED PRANA, WHICH HAS THE SAME MEANING AS KI, OR LIFE-FORCE ENERGY. BY USING THE BREATH WITH THE YOGA ASANAS, THE LOCKED LIFE-FORCE ENERGY (PERCEIVED AS STRESS) BEGINS TO DISSOLVE AND DISPERSE.
