Flow Luxe Yoga Retreat at Windward House!

The Windward House in Tali Beach, Batangas was our home for the last Flow Luxe retreat. We have been planning to do the retreat in this incredible space for months and finally got to do it with a really cool mix of people, like always! 


The laid back interiors of the beach home certainly set the mood for the weekend retreat. Three whole days of R & R is exactly what everyone needs!


Our opening circle is a chance for everyone to break the ice, get to know each other and feel welcome in this new space. Check out the youngest FLOW participant, Baby Maya :) 


The group getting ready for the first yoga class led by Monica Eleazar-Manzano who taught a basic vinyasa againt this gorgeous backdrop, hues of nature and underneath a huge old tree which kept everyone shaded and breathing fresh air. The next day, we had a grounding Yin Yoga session on the upper deck as the sun was setting. No words can justify the experience. You must join our outdoor yoga sessions in one of our upcoming retreats! This particular group had 2 more yoga teachers, one visiting from Guam and another teacher from the city. We had a good exchange of talks on the practice, healing and more!


Yoga always does the body and mind good. Look at the shiny happy people after class with their goodies from our sponsors. :)


What's in our FLOW Goodie Bag? We used an eco Luntian bag which contained a Roxy tee & sticker, Beyond Yoga coupons, Hola! magazines, Belo Essentials Sunexpert sunscreen, Breville reusable smoothie container, STRIP and Browhaus GCs,  Healthy Grocery superfood info sheet


Breville surely wants to help you transition to a healthier lifestyle by giving out so much information on blending smoothies and how to juice fresh vegetables and fruits (ideally, organic!).


Everyone agreed that the main highlight of this weekend was the GLORIOUS Vegetarian food lovingly prepared by Denise Celdran of Edgy Vedgy. See some of the photos and start salivating!


If you want to see more awesome food creations from this retreat, check out #FlowWindward on Instagram and you are sure to regret not joining us!


"A single spark of light can light the darkest night". We pooled our intentions one night and let it float out to the universe to start manifesting waves of new consciousness.



The next morning, the girls went out for their first Stand Up Paddleboard experience with Tono Legarda. Yoga and SUP definitely go hand in hand! 


To the opposite island they go!


We had many moments to share our personal stories with each other. Host, producer, writer and mom, Cat Juan-Ledesma joins the group. Read her account of that weekend in her blog here.


Our green smoothie & introduction to raw foods workshops is powered by Moringana and The Healthy Grocery. (You may purchase moringana capsules and teas from the FLOW Shop www.flowretreats.com)

What's a retreat without sometime to laze around under the sun...



Our wonderful pop up Flow Shop that weekend. 


And it is mandatory at FLOW that everyone comes home with something extra. We acknowledge everyone with what we think is so 



Finale group shot before we headed back home, recharged after that whole weekend under the sun, eating fresh and whole vegetarian food and practicing yoga & SUP, laughing and swimming. See how we glow? :)
