“We are honored to host this retreat as a way for people to realign with nature and self,” said Joan Southon, spa director at The Resort. “Many people are intimidated by yoga or think they can’t do it, but Paleena is a great example of an instructor who embraces yoga and its benefits, and gracefully shares that passion with others.”
