Workshops

At SYJ we love a home grown workshop where we put together unique and informative learning opportunities meant to help you dive deep into the yoga that interests you. We have workshops for everyone whether you’re new to yoga or looking to advance your practice.

Our teachers are incredibly knowledgable and when we come together in a workshop format you get a full on immersion into technique and approach. Part of SYJs mission is to keep the yoga fresh and as teachers we love learning and we love sharing what we think is the most interesting yoga out there.

Full Moon Yoga Surf Retreat

with Raquel Marra & Emily Tully

Join Emily and Raquel in a Nicaraguan Full Moon Yoga & Surf Retreat. Buena Vista Surf Club, a secluded jungle eco-lodge overlooking the surf at Playa Maderas, just north of San Juan el Sur in Nicaragua, will be our home for 4 nights and 5 days. Unwind and give in to the simple life, surrounded by lush forest and the Pacific Ocean. This cozy retreat will offer two traditional family-style meals a day, two rejuvenating yoga classes a day, and an opportunity to surf and go on other exhilarating excursions if you wish. A five minute walk to the beach is always an option between yoga classes, too! Each cabana has a view into the jungle, a private bathroom, a ceiling fan, and cool water showers (that are refreshing after a day in the sun!). Fall asleep to the natural sound of nature surrounding you and find peace that will last a lifetime.
