Power Vinyasa Flow Retreat: Finding Peace Within
with Kathy Vanderselt and Julie Funke


February 15- February 22, 2014


Prepare yourself to be transformed by a perfectly balanced week of powerful physical strength and spiritual/mindful ease. The POWER VINYASA FLOW RETREAT to Xinalani

(—an exclusive ocean front eco resort on Mexico’s Pacific

coast near Puerto Vallarta—is the perfect way to leave February behind and take your

yoga practice to a whole new level.


Come play with Julie and Kathy each morning as they lead a two-hour dynamic and powerful asana practice balanced by a late afternoon restorative/ yin/meditation fusion or workshop practice. Xinalani (pronounced she-na-lani) means “seeds” in pre-Hispanic language and

classes are designed to build and grow each day as your power takes root.


Of course there will be plenty of time to balance power with play as you explore this spectacular ocean front paradise and dozens of activities: everything from surfing, kayaking,

snorkeling, or cooking classes and salsa dancing. There are eco- excursions for the adventurous and spa treatments to relax and restore. Three gourmet, healthy style meals are included daily based on locally grown produce and freshly caught fish. All accommodations are beachfront, spacious palm-thatched cabins built on stilts with stunning views of the Pacific.

Julie enjoys being on her hands, upside down in an inversion or perfecting challenging arm balances. She leads workshops to teach others to do the same. She loves power vinyasa yoga, the yogic art of weaving breath with movement, to inspire the spirit, open the heart and connect with the power and wisdom of the body. Her classes offer a chance to build confidence and strength, become more aware of what the body can do when you are truly in the present moment, but more than anything they are fun.


Be prepared to sweat, work, play and have fun on your mat!
