Once a year, Jeffrey Armstrong shares the best secrets of #YOGAWisdom & Longevity. This year we’ve booked a fabulous private estate in Mexico 60 miles from Cancun. We would be most honored if you can join us for this auspicious event and celebration! (Private message from Jeffrey at the bottom of this page)
Be inspired, rejuvenated, renewed, ignite your passion with #YOGICWISDOM tools that will serve you for your entire life. Yoga retreats are more than just a vacation; they nurture you on many levels. Devoting time to rest, rejuvenating and connecting with our true self creates a powerful opportunity for inner transformation, connection to our divine nature and higher purpose.
This is a special MASTER CLASS RETREAT bringing together a select group of friends, VASA students, and yoga teachers who are avidly interested in fast-tracking their life and yoga practice. Jeffrey Armstrong shares the best YOGA PHILOSOPHY & wisdom he’s learned over the years. Be prepared to be deeply inspired and transformed… EACH year has a theme and covers many topics: relationships, longevity, health, yoga philosophy, tantra, mantra, yantra, up to the highest conversations on Vedanta. This will be an amazing, yet intimate gathering of yogic thought leaders, writers, poets, artists, conscious entrepreneurs and speakers. It would take you years to learn what he will offer you in this 5 day retreat.
Come share an unforgettable experience!!

This is a waterfront luxury villa, which includes your own chef who will cater your every need while you sunbathe in one of the world’s most exotic beaches. Located in Half Moon Bay it provides a tranquil haven from the hustle of the modern city. The bay is surrounded and protected by a coral reef, and its shallow waters are perfect for snorkeling, kayaking and swimming. It has a 1500-square-foot pool with wet bar and covered leisure area with an outdoor Jacuzzi in the terrace. A spectacular Villa for an unforgettable vacation. You may never want to leave!
We have set up a Facebook MEXICO RIDE SHARE group for everyone to connect:
While you are responsible for the cost of getting there – once you send your flight information to the VASA office we will connect you with others to book a van to lower your TAXI costs. People are coming in a few days earlier and leaving a few days later so while this may seem doable now — it may not be as we get closer — we will try to make it work – IF WE GET ENOUGH NOTICE!
Departure Date Feb 26 at 11 AM Tuesday after morning meditation class, breakfast and closing ceremony. It takes about 1 hour to get to the airport. Book your flights to depart after 2:30 to be safe – or stay an extra day and enjoy Cancun or Tulum. There are famous ancient ruins in Tulum.
Dear Esteemed Friend & Student, Namaste, These past years, many of you have contributed your time and energy to VASA – thank you. One of the things we really appreciate is your steady creative input into the many global projects on which we are working and your commitment to traveling to distant lands to participate in these advanced learning retreats. Your presence and enthusiastic dedication inspires me to be the best teacher I can be, and through your personal progress you inspire others who may be new to the path of Vedic philosophy from which I teach.
Jeffrey teaches from the Brahma-Saraswati-Madhva-Gaudia-Vaishnava-Sampradaya lineage or more simply put: Inconceivably, Simultaneously, One & Different: The Distinctivist Path of Vedanta.
This REUNION is a time for you to “really lock-in” your spiritual practice and to give you the opportunity to go deep into your Vedic meditations. It is my only wish that before I leave the planet, my students will learn the Vedic knowledge as best as they can, and that you pass it forward as accurately as possible, and be shining beacons for the next generation.
We are all a divine work in progress. I am requesting your attendance so that I may pass on some of the deepest wisdom to my dedicated senior students and so that you may ask some of your most profound questions in the company of like-minded friends. It is said in the Niti-Shastra of Chanakya Pandit, that we learn in four ways: 25% from the teacher, 25% from the knowledge in the books, 25% from other students and 25% over the course of time. Please consider your attendance at this retreat/reunion as guru dakshina and a gift to yourself and your spiritual upliftment.
May our vision of bringing the healing tonic of Vedic knowledge to the world inspire you, and may the Divine Couple guide and bless your life always. Jai Sri Krishna, Kavindra Rishi
