I’ve learned I’m worthy of any and all the things. I have changed my outlook on myself, those around me and situations. Alyssa never pushes me and helps me believe in myself that I can accomplish things. She has given me courage to face things I never thought I could or wanted to. I am beginning to believe again. Thank you with all of my heart.
— Bev L.
 
Above all, it was an amazing self-process! I found questions about myself and my body that even in years of therapy I had never thought. Through this connection with myself is much easier to understand the signs of my body, take care of myself and not fall into such current traps before the program. In addition, Rita is a wonderful, empathetic and inspiring woman who encouraged me to make these changes happen!

alyssa pfennig, certified yoga therapist (c-iayt)

Alyssa is passionate about sharing the therapeutic wisdom of yoga, nature and horses to help women nourish their path to connection with themselves and their own wild, feminine wisdom. She has practiced yoga for over 15 years and was inspired to become a teacher after sharing the practice with her young niece.

Drawn to the therapeutic use of yoga practices that helped her with an injured shoulder and manage work stress, she spent three years immersed in the study of therapeutic yoga through the Yoga on High Teacher Training Institute in Columbus, Ohio. She has trained in using yoga practices such as asana, pranayama and meditation, to help with structural, mental and emotional issues and will help you make every pose accessible and comfortable in a group class or design a personal yoga program specific to your needs.

For three years, Alyssa assisted in research studies on using yoga to manage chronic pain and PTSD with veterans in conjunction with the VA Medical Center and has also worked one-on-one with patients in a specialized clinic at Eskenazi Health. She works with women on a daily basis to get to the root of their chronic pain and reconnect to their wild hearts.

She is an E-RYT 200/RYT 500 with the Yoga Alliance and a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). She is also certified in enzyme nutrition with the Food Enzyme Institute and certified in Thai Yoga Massage.

rita avellar, integrative health coach

Rita is a certified Health Coach by the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and in love about healthy cooking, wellness, writing and sharing information about healthy living.

Her personal struggle with a sick childhood in Brazil, her native country, with pneumonia, allergies and a low immune system motivated her to research and implement a variety of holistic approaches into her lifestyle. Her research began as young as 12 years old, learning to heal her body using natural and alternative medicine, herbs, vitamins and food.

A combined interest in human behavior and communication led her to work for more than 15 years in marketing for the fashion industry and later in life she decided to follow her first passion, study to become a health coach and share what she has learned with others so that they can find relief in their lives as well.

 
Wherever there is an absence of power, spirit, or joy in a woman’s life, she has lost touch with her wild self.
— Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Hotel Cerritos Surf Town

Cerritos Surf Town is located on one of the most privileged beaches in the Pacific, Cerritos Beach.

This beach is an incredible oasis in the middle of an incredible show where the desert and the sea come together. Cerritos Beach, being the only beach where you can swim, is also a meeting place for several of the best surfers on the Pacific coast.

On your visit to Cerritos Surf Town you will enjoy one of the most beautiful and quiet beaches of Baja in a totally relaxed and stress free environment.

 

Tears have a purpose. They are what we carry of the ocean. And perhaps we must become the sea, give ourselves to it, if we are to be transformed.
