About Santosha Retreats

Halli Bourne and Marisa Wolfe first joined forces in 2006 to launch the Hyatt Regency Tamaya's yoga program on the Santa Ana Pueblo in New Mexico.  A year later, Marisa opened Yoga del Sol, offering yoga, bodywork and awesome workshops with Halli.  With a shared sense of wanderlust and craving for adventure, Marisa and Halli founded Santosha Yoga & Meditation Retreats to draw their students into a direct experience of the wonder and discovery of pervasive relaxation in new environments.  Quick to smile and eager to embrace the array of life's pleasures, their friendly personalities and skillful approaches offer students a unique, rich experience of yoga and mediation.  Halli and Marisa currently maintain full schedules running their own businesses while coming together to lead retreats in New Mexico and beyond. www.santoshayogaretreats.com

About Kripalu Yoga
Kripalu Yoga is a comprehensive, disciplined approach to self-study that cultivates health, psychological growth, and personal satisfaction. Kripalu draws from thousands of years of study and practice and fosters spiritual connection to all life.  Through the application of nonjudgemental awareness, students connect to their own innate wisdom and potential for happiness.  What distinguishes Kripalu Yoga from other styles of yoga is its emphasis on physical sensation, emotion, and thoughts that arise throughout the practice with careful attention to the quality of breath. The way students act or react on the mat becomes a microcosm for behavior in daily life. With increased consciousness, students discover greater authenticity, equanimity and contentment.  While other styles of yoga are honored, our practice will be meditative in nature with a combination of flow and stillness as we tune into the present moment and the bliss available to us there.
