FLOW: Yoga & Detox Retreat at Cintai Coritos Garden, March 2014

Just a little over an hour from Manila, Corito’s Garden is a paradise away from the bustling city. 
It is a perfect place to unwind, relax and meditate.



We were greeted by the friendly staff of the Balinese-inspired sanctuary, with fresh coconut juice to rehydrate us upon arrival. 

After an ice breaker game led by the FLOW team, we were escorted to our villas to freshen up before lunch. 

All meals were vegetarian with some vegan options and healthy- made by Corito's owner and manager, Pattie Palma Gil-Poniente. 
A highlight was the raw vegan caesar salad dressing invented by Pattie herself for our retreat.


We spent the afternoon by the pool and took a walking meditation around parts of the 2-hectare gardens to catch glimpses of the free roaming peacocks, chicken and geese. 

Sunset Ashtanga yoga was led by Pattie in the stunning Peacock shala located near the villas. Asanas for detoxifying the body were done for beginners.



With glowing eyes and faces, the participants headed to the Raw Food and Green Smoothie workshop led by FLOW with the help of Breville's team to demonstrate their juicer, blender and food processor. Superfoods from The Healthy Grocery andMoringana were infused into the recipes. The chia seeds and goji berries were a hit!






Participants received goodie bags with an event shirt from Roxy Outdoor Fitness, Roxy keychain, FLOW bag tag, products from Cutieverse such as Sanibear Handwash and Hand Sanitizer, Merry Hempster Muscle Balm and Hurraw lipbalm, gift certificates from Beyond YogaJuice BaristaRawlicious Green Smoothies

Sunday morning was a Vinyasa class before pool time. We closed the event with some performances from the participants and awarded everyone with goodies from our wonderful sponsors!


Big thanks to all our participants who joined this retreat! Hope to see you in other Flow retreats as well!

Thanks to Cintai Corito's Garden for hosting us!



Til the next Flow retreat!
