What a typical day will look like:
All activities are optional. Each morning will start with a morning meditation (ideally on the beach), followed by either breakfast or a morning yoga practice. In the afternoon, there will be lots of time to sun on the beach, participate in your tune up program (if you choose to add that to your experience), or explore the town of Santa Teresa.
Lunch is available at many local vendors and restaurants for around $10-$12/meal, we recommend bringing a little extra for dinner so you have more options. We will gather as a group for the evening; yoga, dinner, and a group activity for the night.
Every day will be different and we will keep participants updated with a daily schedule. Yoga classes will vary from a high energy flow to restorative. This retreat is open to everyone - yogis and non-yogis alike!
Caitlin Pascucci, E-RYT 500
Caitlin began consistently practicing yoga in 2011 at a free class in a community space. It was this unconventional beginning that has led to an unconventional path of teaching and studio management.
In 2012 Caitlin pursued her first yoga certification at Fluid Yoga with Kevan Gale (located at Stil Studio in Dedham, MA). She began teaching donation-based classes regularly and in 2014 she founded Sangha Studio, Vermont’s first and only nonprofit, donation-based yoga studio.
As a teacher and Executive Director at Sangha Studio, she prides herself in supporting the creativity of teachers and students and believes in the power of community and collaboration. During her classes, Caitlin hopes to deepen each student’s individual practice through hands-on adjustments and assists, precise alignment cues, and creative sequencing. Her classes encourage students to get to know each other, challenge their way of thinking, cultivate awareness of the breath/body connection, and build strength.

Sarah Diedrick teaches from the belief that yoga is a way to access the ecstatic and inspiring qualities of life. Her style is strong, alignment-based vinyasa infused with playful flavors, and focused on moving with the rhythm of the breath. Sarah hopes to empower her students by sharing tools and insights that can be woven into life both on and off the mat. Through precise alignment cues, intentional sequencing and philosophical themes, Sarah hopes to direct each student toward the incredible potential of their own Self.
Sarah also teaches restorative yoga. She is passionate about his more passive practice because it allows us to move into the kind of stillness that initiates a conversation with the more subtle aspects of body and mind.
With a degree in English and Creative Writing, Sarah threads poetic language through her classes as a way to highlight the many artistic aspects of yoga. Sarah has completed two 200-hour trainings with Amy Ippoliti and Paula Tursi, and has continued to study with and assist her mentor, Amy Ippoliti. She trained with Judith Hanson Lasater to receive her restorative yoga teaching certification. Sarah has had the pleasure of studying Tantric philosophy with teachers such as Douglas Brooks and Bill Mahony.
