Yoga Journeys

Reconnect with yourself

Francisco has been leading retreats to locations rich in cultural stories and natural wonderment since 2006. Prior to each upcoming journey, Francisco travels to each location to plan it with thoughtfulness, in order to ensure that you return home with memories that will hum in your heart for years to come.  During these heart-opening experiences, Yoga Journeys will inspire you with the magic, culture and beauty of the locations we visit, while creating time for you to relax, connect with friends and practice yoga.
