Aaron Ogden and Tony Khalife bring to Sagrada a truly holistic, spiritual integration of yoga, music and ceremony. The weekend begins with the setting of intention and inviting clarity into the practice. As the weekend unfolds, you are guided to move joyfully and powerfully towards realizing these resolutions and expansions of your authentic self through yoga, meditation, and sacred ceremony. You will return home feeling clear, vibrant, centered and rejuvenated on all levels; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

I just left the New Year's Yoga Retreat with Aaron Ogden as an instructor. It couldn't have been a better trip for my worn out New York self. Each morning started with a beautiful hike at different locations every day. We had a lovely small group of people at all different levels of yoga and Aaron tailored the classes perfectly for what we were all trying to achieve. Sagrada Wellness is a very special and beautiful place.
