There will also be ample time for exploring and snorkeling, relaxing and a day of mission with a local children’s organization. Attendance is limited to 12 people.

Maggie specializes in meditation, chakras balancing, vinyasa flow, and chair, intimate, corporate, senior and children’s yoga. She is also certified in Reiki Level 1, personal training, yoga and chakra balancing, and group exercise. Through practice and mission, Grace aims to leave guests in a state of higher awareness, able to let go and free up space to share their souls.
