“Yoga is a practice of almost unlimited possibilities, benefiting our physical health, our sense of mental and emotional well-being, and feeding our soul on its search for purpose and meaning. And because of all these things, yoga can help us get healthy, be healthy, and also help us deal with sadness and suffering when they inevitably show up in our lives. It has been my invaluable companion for almost 20 years, and I am looking forward to our discoveries together in the next 20!”

New Adventure!
Marfa/Austin, Texas
March 28-April 2, 2018

Art, Yoga, Music Tour - Marfa, Austin Texas 2018 with Baxter Bell and Melina Meza

Join us, Baxter and Melina Meza, for a journey into art, yoga, music, nature and tasty Tex-Mex food! We begin in Marfa, an art oasis in West Texas. Put on the map back in the 1970s when artist Donald Judd moved there in search of “space” to explore his minimalist art, it has been drawing bohemians and the creative type ever since. This tiny town full of scrub cactus, tumbleweeds, vacant roads surrounded by sky and cotton candy clouds is the perfect backdrop for our adventure.

After dropping into Marfa for a few days we’ll hit the road and travel to the Live Music Capital of the World- Austin, Texas. We’ll immerse you into the local music and food scene, keep you healthy with yoga, swimming at Barton Springs, and lots of tasty refreshing juices! This spring retreat is perfect for art enthusiasts, yogis and Americana/Folk/Country/Blues music lovers.
