Christy Cutler – Certified Teacher of the Feldenkrais Method/ Priestess of the subtle/ Awareness Architect/ Curator of curiosity/ Poetry lover/ Lifelong children’s dance teacher/ Traveler by trailer throughout the West/ Aquarius who cannot carry a tune/ Twenty years ago I discovered the genius of Moshe Feldenkrais’ somatic work. It fills my soul to experience and teach his movement lessons which are a gentle but powerful means to improve our mind/body, open us up to joy and being in our bodies just as they are. Beautiful and complete! 202219 will be my 7th year co-leading iBODY’s Magical Mexico retreat. Join me in slowing down and opening up to the small miracles, lulled by the sound of ocean waves in the background!
Annie Martens — Hatha & Yoga Nidra Instructor/ Yogini Goddess/ Professional Free Spirit/ Silent Meditation Facilitator/ Age-is-Just-a-Number Believer/ Sagittarius/ Astrology Blogger/ Poet/ Non-dualist/ Ayurveda Lover/ Over the last decade, yoga has become the lens in which I see life through. That’s why in my classes why I often share stories of my times spent in India, the place that yoga originated many thousands of years ago. It’s my desire to bring the magic I found there to you, and to inspire you to see the beautiful and authentic aspects of not only yoga, but yourSelf! I’m humbled to co-faciliate this supremely special retreat for the third year, and I so look forward to a week of connection and soul-growth with you!
