OR the opportunity to go for 2 FULL WEEKS (Jan.11-25)


led by award-winning yogi Ted Roseen and Sharon Picasso

It’s a good sign when a retreat has been returning year after year, and even more so that for the past TEN years there has been back-to-back weeks! 


Thoughtfully created in Troncones, Guerrero; one of the last sacred and authentic destinations in Mexico, Present Moment Retreat offers the opportunity for physical, spiritual, and mental rejuvenation through yoga, meditation and the healing arts. Renew your spirit while meditating on their private beach; revive your energy with sunrise and sunset yoga with yogi Ted Roseen, and then reward yourself as you dine on mouth-watering gourmet cuisine. At night, relax in your private seaside cabana, take a walk on the beach, cool off in the pool or check out the nightlife in one of the nearby towns.
Located just north of Ixtapa, with the amenities of a five star hotel and the privacy of a deserted island, Present Moment Retreat uniquely combines the luxuries of a health spa and beach resort with the tranquility of an intimate yoga center.


Ted Roseen (he/him).  Master yoga instructor, Ted Roseen has been teaching his unique blend of yoga around the Twin Cities for years. This mix of the biomechanics of Iyengar, strong poses and repetition of Ashtanga, and the gentle flow of Vinyasa creates a fun, yet challenging balance for students of any level. As a marathoner, triathlete, and rock climber, Roseen understands the importance of an open body, the benefits of a positive and quiet mind and the powerful resource that is tapped when that open body and quiet mind are connected. But, it’s Ted’s sense of humor and lightness of heart that really sets him apart from other teachers, a true believer of tapping in to your inner playground. He has studied under a number of gurus, including Saraswathi Rangaswamy, daughter of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India and local yogi Dec Barry. Ted was acknowledged for his efforts and abilities in yoga in the Mpls/St.Paul Magazine “Best of the Twins Cities 2007."


Sharon Picasso (she/her).  Sharon Picasso is a Minneapolis based movement, performance and transdisciplinary creative Artist and Founder/Artistic Director of Picasso Projects and Lupa Studio. Sharon has taught Pilates since 1998 and now focuses her teaching practice in the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® Methods. 
A compassionate and lighthearted teacher with a keen eye for alignment Sharon engages the whole person in her classes and sessions and provides space for connection and expression. Using her background in somatic based movement Sharon invites the individual to have a deeper relationship themselves and their bodies, sensation and expansive movement. 
Sharon’s work as a professional freelance performance and dance artist lives parallel to her work as a choreographer since 1995. Sharon’s creative and collaborative practice has expanded into design including sound, light and installation. Paramount in Sharon's collaborative process is cultivating an inclusive, respectful and sustaining creative environment where value is placed on the wholeness of an individual.
