Entre sueños Winter retreat January, 2019 Collaborators
Margaret Dubin has been practicing yoga for more than twenty years. After a two-decade career as a cultural anthropologist working with and for Native American communities, Margaret left the field and enrolled in yoga teacher training at the former Piedmont Yoga Studio. In 2017 she opened her own studio, Yoga for All, with the goal of making the practice more affordable for her community. Margaret is trained in trauma-informed yoga and has served veterans and survivors of domestic violence. Her #havematwilltravel initiative has enabled her to teach in the Navajo Nation and the rural Adirondacks. Margaret studied Reiki with Erika Faith at Cloud Nine Studio and is certified as a Reiki Level I/II; Yoga Tune Up and Roll Method with Gretchen Corbin and Melissa Williams; meditation with Debbie Philps of True North; Buddhist philosophy with Mark Mancall and Sean Feit Oakes; and SUP yoga with Mike Wang and the inspiring staff of Mike’s Paddle.
Stephanie is a Oaxaca-based yoga teacher (RYT-200). She began her yogic path in Costa Rica in 2012 and completed her 200 hour teacher training at Pilgrimage of the Heart Yoga in San Diego, CA. She teaches in both English and Spanish and focuses on alignment based movement. Her specialties are in Vinyasa Flow, Acroyoga, Hatha, and Yin yoga. Apart from yoga she loves cooking vegetarian food (with the exception of the Oaxacan specialty: chapulines!)
Without a doubt, one of the greatest reasons to visit Oaxaca is the food! Wonderful pairings are created with traditional drinks and the cuisine. The unique combination of flavors in Oaxacan cuisine are comprised of cheeses, seven types of mole, stewed meats, tlayudas, memelas, traditional soups, sweet breads, champillones (grasshoppers), tamales, and fruit ice creams.
Las artesanìas/ Artisan crafts
In Oaxaca, indigenous artistic expression is a vibrant part of life in the pueblos that surround the main city. Many of the communities in these pueblos still practice traditional ancient art forms that have been passed down over thousands of years. Folk art such as alebrijes, textiles, ceramics, and beautiful embroidery can all be found in the Central Valleys.
Los Mercados/ The markets
In Oaxaca’s markets an explosion of colors, flavors, and aromas come together. As you wander through the markets you can find traditional foods, (mole, cheeses, coffees, atole, tamales) fresh fruits and vegetables, herbs and spices, handicrafts, textiles and so much more!
Las Ruinas/ The Ruins
There are around 4000 known archaeological sites in Oaxaca. Monte Álban and Mitla are two of the most important settlements for the Mixtecs and the Zapotecs and forged the beginnings of present day Oaxaca.
El Mezcal/ The Mezcal
Distilled from the Maguey (agave) plant, Mezcal plays an important role in Oaxacan identity. The art of Mezcal can be experienced in various mezcalerias and palenques where you can taste the aromas and flavors which tell its story. A visit to Oaxaca is not complete without tasting a traditional mezcal created by experts.
Los Museos/ Museums & Galleries
Oaxaca has a rich history and culture of artistic expression. The city center has several museums and galleries that host exhibitions and works from regional, national, and international artists.
