How do I get there?

What is the Yoga like?
Core Strength Vinyasa Flow
I prefer to call Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga a “perspective” on all yoga, rather than just its own style. I created it after years of training and study where I was seeing a lack of either understanding or focus on the core of our yoga poses on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and energetic.

Along the way, I was fortunate to meet one of my formative teachers, Leslie Kaminoff of The Breathing Project in NYC, and author of the bestselling Yoga Anatomy. Under his expertise in yoga, philosophy, anatomy and pranayama, I continue to evolve my understanding of the multi-faceted core.

Out of my journey into deep Center came my Core Principles, ways to clarify what the core is, exactly how to instruct it and activate the core within the yoga practice. To help students experience their Center, I created my Core Poses, specific movements, postures and sequences that bring the student into more core-generated alignment, improving safety and stability while causing a more efficient total body/mind transformation.

Rebel Spirit Vinyasa Flow

Yoga works to inspire a REBEL SPIRIT in all of us. It reduces our resistance to fear because through this practice the self-abuse of perfectionism diminishes. Rebel Spirit Vinyasa Flow mevinesfranceencourages you to feel more than think, learn more than compare, enjoy more than judge. Ift is a practice over-analysis or procrastination.

If we defiantly let our heart consciousness take an active role, then we shift our paradigm into one where there is no failure, only trust that we can’t really fail at anything. If you go up to bat and miss the ball, it’s not a big deal. You produce a result; so you act upon that result and stay stoked to try your poses again.

This practice invokes the badass energy of Durga, Invincibility, to stand up for our life! We will inhabit the poses with fierce kindness and peaceful determination and strut away inspired to be ourselves. Join me for some playful, radical fun flow to stoke your rebel spirit!

Disclaimer: Rebel Spirit Vinyasa Flow can be (1) practiced by anyone, and (2) You can’t do it wrong. (3) Please come dressed like you (and not like everybody else). (4) Yoga police, yoga elitists, and anyone that’s “yogierthanthou*” this one is not for you. *Sadie Nardini quote

    • Hi Sandy,
      We are finalizing costs, they will be in the same range as all our other retreats. Stay tuned will post in the next 30 days!


      • Thanks for the response, but it’s now August and has been more than thirty days–what’s the price of this trip?


  1. This looks to be right up my alley. Your tours look like great values and being with folks with the same interests really helps the immersion process, but having some time for individual exploration is perfect. Looking forward to seeing how it spec’s out.




  2. another thing i’d like to ask: if i reserve a spot on this trip for $500 and then when the final price comes out it’s too expensive, can i transfer my deposit to another trip on your website? i really am interested in going to france, but i need to know how much the total price will be.
