TAP INTO THE WELLSPRING

A NATURAL ADVENTURE

A Natural Adventure

WITH COCO BORSCHE & ALEX WIDAS

 We are beings of tremendous value and depth, and of infinite potential. We are innately noble. Our very nature is brilliance.

The stories of our lives and cultures can sometimes obscure these inalienable truths.

Join us as we adventure into our own true nature, and tap into the wellspring of joy at the core of our hearts.

YOGA

  • Awaken the subtleties of ashtanga yoga through a slow, gentle, and relaxed morning practice.

  • Experience the grace and playfulness of Liquid Flow Yoga during delicious dance-like nightly practice.

PHILOSOPHY AND MEDITATION

  • Investigate the heart of reality with key insights from Tibetan Yoga, Zen, Classical Yoga, Taoism, Sufism and more; in a nonsectarian, easily understandable, relatable, and relaxed way.

MASSAGE THERAPY

  • Shed patterns of holding from mind and body with a massage therapy session.

ADVENTURE

  • Explore the secluded oasis of Cat Island with its caves, cliffs and stunning beaches. Paddle out into the jewel-like aquamarine waters — matchless in their beauty. Snorkel in the thriving reefs. Dive into mystery of a Blue Hole. Sail into the sunset with exquisite fresh food and live music.

ABOUT US

COCO CATALINA BORSCHE

Chef de Cuisine & Liquid Flow Yoga

On a trip around the world, Coco was given her name by her parents, after an island was discovered in Costa Rica named " Isla del Coco ". The cosmic coincidence is that she was conceived in the Galapagos Isles, which share the same rare bird species and green sea turtles as Cocos Island

Coco's yoga journey began in Poona, India at the United World College founded by Nelson Mandela. She organized to have a direct disciple of BKS Iyengar, Mr Shah ( who dedicated 1008 consecutive drop backs to Mr. Iyengar for his 60th birthday ), come to the school to teach the students. Coco intensified her study of Iyengar Yoga at the Kare Ayurveda Institute, set in idyllic Mulshi Lake. Afterwards in her native Germany, she embraced Prana Flow developed by Shiva Rea as well as Ashtanga Yoga. Coco has assisted Trainings/Workshops/Festivals and practiced worldwide with Simon Park (Liquid Flow Yoga) and Maty Ezraty. Her passionate and original fusion of these various disciplines, signifies her style.

Coco´s classes are invigorating and dynamic, as well as soulful and meditative. They are accompanied with the rythms and sounds of world music.  Her teaching will help you heal your body and free your mind. 
You will find the empowerment of the self-healing process.

ALEX WIDAS

Yoga, Philosophy, and Meditation; Massage Therapist

Alex is a Licensed Massage Therapist and teaches yoga and philosophy around the world. He draws from more than a decade of study in biomedical sciences, alternative medicine, martial arts, philosophy, Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, and Liquid Flow Yoga.

Alex is attentive, kind, and gentle. His classes are illuminating and relaxing. For him: yoga, bodywork, and philosophy are central aspects of living artfully.

The art of living is neither careless drifting on the one hand nor fearful clinging to the past on the other. It consists in being sensitive to each moment, in regarding it as utterly new and unique, in having the mind open and wholly receptive… This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.  -Alan Watts

THE LOCATION

SPIRIT HOUSE ON CAT ISLAND, BAHAMAS

The Spirit House is an entirely off-grid home set in a pristine tropical wilderness 3 miles down a private road from the nearest settlement of Devils Point, Cat Island, The Bahamas. 

It sits on a 70 foot elevation overlooking the multi-hued brilliant blue waters of Exuma Sound and the southwest coast of Cat Island. There are nearly 360 degrees of ocean view including 2 exquisite white sand beaches and a tidal wetlands which is home to egrets, herons and osprey. Sunrise over the lagoon, sunset over the ocean, a full moon which shines almost as bright as day with its mysterious silver light and a brilliant field of stars unlike anything that can be experienced from more settled places can all be explored from the decks and verandahs and every room has excellent views of the surrounding wilderness.

Cat Island is the least developed of the larger Bahamian islands and has retained the timeless charm. It has a reputation for mystery and magic and is a repository of Bahamian art, craft, heritage and folklore. There are caves to explore, blue holes and endless white sand beaches and shelling locations with no crowds of tourists.

THE FOOD

delicious healthy vegetarian cuisine

The food will be prepared by Coco, we try to use all local organic ingredients. We will try to cook on a real fire whenever possible and also to catch a fish for one night to share. There will be breakfast, lunch and dinner.
