She is Co-founder and Director of Education for Renew Yoga’s Registered Yoga School. She continues to feed her fascination with the body as she works toward a Yoga Medicine 1000HR credential with Tiffany Cruikshank. Amy plans to expand her practice into collaborating with doctors and health care practitioners in support of illness and injury.

the yoga:              flow

Classes will range from powerful and strengthening, to deeply relaxing and restoring. During active practice, key muscle groups will be realigned and strengthened, focusing on basic postures and breathing. The yoga asanas, or postures, are designed to peel back the residue of our daily lives, and reconnect us to the primal flow of energy occurring naturally within us. During restorative practice, the body is supported by bolsters and other props so that muscle activity can be surrendered, and the benefits of the postures can happen passively as guided meditation helps the nervous system shift gears into the relaxation response, slowing the brain waves to a healing Alpha or Theta frequency.  

 

Sound healing:

Sound Healing uses the power of sound and vibration to restore one's body, mind and spirit to a sense of balance and harmony.  Imagine receiving a gentle bath of sounds. Your relaxation deepens as your body and heart soak in the subtle vibrations of instruments and singing moving over and around you.  Sound is medicine for your whole being.


EXPERIENCES

The sea

Sea of Cortez

The unique marine life has created a thriving ecosystem; smaller microorganisms attract the diverse small fish, which then attract larger gamefish. Between the waters themselves and the hundreds of islands within, the Sea of Cortez and nearby lagoon Magdalena Bay are active home, birthing, and nesting sites for a large number of marine mammals, birds, and fish, some of which you can only find here. Blue Whales, Humpback Whales, California Gray Whales, Orcas, Manta Ray, and Leatherback Sea Turtles migrate annually to the area, and it’s not unlikely to spot a Vaquina Porpoise speeding alongside your boat or kayak

Whale Watching

Every year between late December and mid-March thousands of gray whales make their annual migration through the Pacific Ocean. It is a spectacular event. During these months it is possible to see these magnificent creatures and experience one of the world’s most memorable wildlife adventures.

Kayaking and SUP

Las Cruses provides a fleet of sea kayaks and stand up paddle boards guests can take exploring. These water toys are a great way to get up close and personal with the diverse and exciting sea life. 

 

The Land

Hiking

Naturalists from around the world are attracted to the area’s sheer diversity; desert flora and fauna, mangrove estuaries, and the coastal shorelines make up the intriguing terrain. The area provides nesting sites and migratory habitat for about 210 bird species (both terrestrial and marine) and a number of endemic species, including the world's largest cactus, blacktailed jack rabbit, ground squirrel and a variety of reptiles.

Valleys covered in the thousands of desert plant varieties lead to ravines and stream beds, the site of primitive cave and gorge paintings and carvings.  The unique alluvial plains, dramatic cliffs, and waterside wonders make Azul de Cortez and the Baja peninsula a flourishing tropical ecosystem. Explore10,000 acres of Las Cruse's private, pristine coastline, breathtaking trails, and mountain pools.

 

Accomodations

Las Cruses

Historic Rancho Las Cruces is an exclusive Baja seaside beach resort located on a natural sanctuary of more than 10,000 acres and 7 miles of private pristine coastline. Its hotel is situated along the white sandy beaches of the Sea of Cortés.

Wake to the morning sun and be filled with awe as it turns the tranquil sea into a masterpiece of color. Enjoy the majestic Santa Cruz Mountains, stunning desert gardens and oasis of stately palms while enjoying attentive and personalized service.
