Daily Schedule

This retreat takes place from July 27 - August 3, 2024.  Plan on arriving at the property between3-5pm on July 27th, and leaving after yoga & breakfast on August 3rd. We'll help coordinate for people to share transport if needed. Each day is balanced between group activities, and plenty of free time to do as you wish. Everything is optional: you can get into as much or as little as you want. Below is a schedule just to give you a general idea (it tends to vary once we actually get going). Whether you want to embrace your introvert, or hang out with new friends - there will be plenty of opportunity for both.

Movement + Breath. A deep morning practice with Nikki or Anton. Morning practice will be a mix of rigorous movement, breath-work, and meditation.
Nourish. Enjoy Cocoon's iconic breakfast! Local organic fruit, greek yogurt, eggs from our chickens, freshly baked breads, homemade jams, and freshly brewed coffee & teas.
Play. Chill out by the lake, adventure to the beach, or hop on a bike and explore.
Nourish. A light lunch.
Play. Book a massage, choose a hammock to nap on, or play uno with Anton.
Afternoon Practice. The afternoon activity varies. Some days it'll be a more restorative or workshop-style class with Nikki or Anton. Other days we'll skip practice and go adventure!
Nourish. Plant-forward, farm-to-table dinner. Local natural wines available at a very reasonable price.
Sleep, stargaze, or skinnydip.
