About Recharge Retreats

Back in 2010, we were in Mexico for a three-week break from running our corporate consulting, training, and coaching business.

Twenty-one days of yoga, great food, swimming in the ocean, and meeting new friends has a way of relaxing you. Changing your perspective. And that’s how Recharge Retreats & Awakened Life School of Yoga got started.

We were staying at a resort with no electricity, in an open-air room that overlooked the ocean. There wasn’t much for us to do, and yet somehow our life was so full and rich. We couldn’t believe how good we felt.

Over the prior two years, we’d talked several times about starting a yoga teacher training school. And while we loved the idea, it had never felt like the time was right. But on this trip, something changed. And even though we didn’t know how exactly we were going to do it, we decided we were going to run our first yoga training in Bali, less than a year later – despite the fact that we had never been to Bali! It was a huge leap of faith and tons of work, and most (maybe all?!) of our friends thought we had gone crazy. But with non-stop intervention by the universe to help us get things going, and behind-the-scenes help from countless people, we ran our first teacher training, with 15 beautiful people from around the world.

It was life-changing, to say the least. Guiding 15 people through a deep transformational journey was much more powerful than we had ever expected, and we knew we wanted to keep serving others in that way.  Not that much later, we closed our other businesses and devoted ourselves to yoga full time.  It’s been scary and challenging sometimes for sure, but mostly, it’s been unbelievably rewarding and heartwarming.  It’s the best decision we’ve ever made!

If you have any questions, please reach out to us…we’d love to chat.  Maybe we’ll meet at an upcoming retreat or teacher training!

Take care and have a beautiful day,

Chris and Liz
