About Sylvi Harwin

Yoga transports me to a place of peace and joy; it is my personal dance to celebrate life. Yoga and meditation are the foundations of my life journey. I was very fortunate in that my mother embraced the yogic philosophy and taught yoga when I was but a toddler, so my practice began at an early age. I experienced a profound connection to the yogic philosophy and yoga community.

I bring to my teaching years of practice as well as my passion for yoga and instructing to help each student ease into the poses with safe alignment in a mindful, calm state of mind. I am particularly knowledgeable about helping students with injuries or physical challenges to better achieve comfort and openness in their asanas. I specialize in Yin Yoga, Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow & Hatha Yoga, with certification in Yin & Vinyasa style Hatha Yoga, & regularly offer workshops at yoga centers throughout North County. I am also a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP) and offer 60 hour yoga teacher trainings.

About Rached Maalouf

Rached Maalouf was born in Lebanon and moved to Boston, Massachussetts in 1976 at the age of 12. He moved to San Diego in 1990 and now lives in Escondido, with his wife and 2 children. He completed 3 yoga teacher trainings; Indra Devi Hatha yoga in March 1999, Synergy yoga in August 2000 and Ashtanga yoga in June 2003. His yoga teaching career began in 1999 and hehas taught approximately 15,000 classes since then. Yoga is his passion and way of life.

He opened Sattva Fitness Yoga Center in January 2002, teaches full time and runs the business. While teaching and assisting in local ongoing teacher training programs, he has witnessed physical and mental transformations of many students. Reading or interpreting a student's body in a pose, making modifications and skillfully using hands on adjustments are his strengths. He lives a simple life, eats organic and vegetarian food, and lives to serve his family and yoga students.

About This Retreat

Yoga is a means of achieving a union of mind, body & spirit to create complete harmony between human beings and their environment, their individual consciousness and Universal Consciousness. This retreat in Mexico is designed to help you achieve this balance by practicing pranayama, meditation & yoga asanas along with outdoor activities and organic, nutritional foods, all in a peaceful, natural setting in Puerto Vallarta. Lodging in open-concept villas nestled in a jungle setting overlooking the ocean, you will enjoy group meditation, Yin yoga & Power yoga outdoors in the morning and an hour of Hatha yoga levels 1 -3 in the evening, with afternoons free for activities including hiking & snorkeling (at no extra cost).
