Hi, I’m Yogini Mimi. Your stress-reducing genie.
I’ve created a beautiful, exotic yoga retreat with you in mind called the B.A.L.A.N.C.E. Yoga & Surf Retreat, September 1st through 8th, 2016, in Montezuma, Costa Rica in the Nicoya Peninsula, known as one of the Blue Zones across the world. To learn more about the Blue Zones, visit www.yoginimimi.com and go to the retreats tab.
But before we get into the details of the retreat, allow me to share a little bit about myself.
In the past, I was a pharmaceutical sales manager for a Fortune 500 company. I spent a lot of time focusing on others and little to no time focusing on myself.
I experienced an imbalanced lifestyle in the five wheels of my body vehicle: spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically and socially.
Spiritually, I created little room to practice my faith. I was too busy.
Mentally, I created little room to exercise my mental abilities in a manner that was nourishing and rewarding to my soul. Once again, I was too busy.
Physically, I had no time to establish a consistent fitness regimen that would help me reclaim my health. Again, I was too busy.
Emotionally, I created a space that did not permit time to cultivate a powerful relationship with myself or my child, let alone a significant other, which was nonexistent in this reality I was choosing for myself. A typical work week looked like: I would wake up at 4:30 AM to catch a 6:00 AM flight out of town. I would be away from my son and my home for three days a week, leaving my son with my step mother, my sister or a nanny. I would return late Thursday evening so that I could be home for conference calls all Friday beginning at 5:00 AM. I would end the day too exhausted to engage with my child. Saturday’s were my day to spend quality time with my teenage son, who was outgrowing me by then. Sunday’s were my day to preplan the next week so that I could do it all again.
And socially, I was so lame. I cannot tell you how many times I said, “no,” to life events so that I could say, “yes,” to work events. I remember a time when my family came to visit me in Seattle, Washington. They planned this beautiful excursion to Mount Rainier. And I said, “no.” Here I was living in the Pacific Northwest and I never visited Mount Rainier. Why? Because I was just too busy, overstressed, and overwhelmed with my workload and familial responsibilities.
Then I realized, “I’m too busy,” was the story I was telling myself. What’s the story you are telling yourself?
It is with you in mind that I have created this beautiful retreat in Costa Rica. If you relate in any way to my personal story, then join us.
If you have ever felt as if you needed a vacation after your vacation, then this retreat is the antidote.
So, allow us to guide you into a place of relaxation where you can energize and recharge by enjoying yoga, meditation, surfing and healthy foods while in paradise. With me, Yogini Mimi, and my team of extraordinary and talented coaches.
