MARGE CAMP
april 16-22, 2023

Movement | Artistry | Restoration: Group Experience

Celebrating A Meaningful Practice

It is with abundant carbonated JOY I present to you the first ever rendition of MARGE CAMP. While the acronym started as a playful joke, why fight it if the shoe fits?

 

"Movement | Artistry | Restoration: Group Experience / Celebrating A Meaningful Practice". This absolutely, truly, and entirely encapsulates the essence of MARGE CAMP.

I oh-so warmly invite you to join me in the delightful town of Puerto Morelos, Mexico in April 2023. In this special corner of the world, I've spent many hours sizzling under the Caribbean sun, trapping sand between my toes, breathing with the rhythm of the palm trees, dropping sweat on the studio floor, and indulging in the fullest celebration of my movement practice.

Casa Om Mexico offers a lovingly designed insulated retreat abode to carry your week with ease and wonder. Located just 16 miles south of the Cancun International Airport, staff will scoop you up on your Sunday arrival and return you back to the airport on the Saturday departure date. Luxury bedrooms, private bathrooms, linens and necessities, a private pool, hammocks abundant, open air dining palapa, koi pond, and a state-of-the-art yoga studio is yours to call home - nestled just across the street from the Caribbean Sea where 6 sunrises await you.

Above all, I am thrilled and honored to share with you ALL of my specialized offerings I hold near and dear. In addition to power, rocket, vinyasa, and slow yoga asana practices, I will offer daily workshops - a direct download from my heart to yours. We will explore our connection to our practice through language, play, journaling, embodying the chakras, & getting vertical as well as horizontal. Plan on cartwheels. A sunrise beach practice. Expect the dreamiest moonlight nidra. Haikus will be written. Get your feet in the air. Soften into your self. In a word: indulge.

Itinerary details to unfold as camp approaches. And just like always - everything is optional.

If you happen to be a yoga teacher and partake in all classes/workshops, you will earn 25-hrs of continuing education accredited through Yoga Alliance.

The dining experience is like no other - Casa Om staff prepares daily brunch and dinners with the yogic lifestyle in mind. Exquisitely enriching vegetarian Mexican, Thai, New American, & Lebanese dishes alongside daily juices under the open-air palapa are guaranteed to leave you nourished. A treasure as old as time... breaking bread as a group will enrich our gathering as we feed our bodies and spirits, sharing stories as we energize or wind down our day.

 

Two evenings are reserved for you to explore the nourriture of the town; just take a jaunt down the road and watch the delectable options unfold. The possibilities are endless!

Staff is happy to offer gluten-free and vegan options in addition to taking care of any personal dietary needs. For more information on the Casa Om cuisine, see here.

A plethora of additional adventures are available: on-site massages, body and breath therapies, spa treatments, healing ceremonies, snorkeling in the world-famous reefs of Riviera Maya, excursions to explore the cenotes (natural sinkholes)...

... or you can quite literally cross the street and treat yourself to moments in the sun and sand with fresh guacamole and a margarita in hand.

Ready, set... exhale. Close your eyes. Can you smell the sea breeze yet? Feel the sun on face? The salt on your skin?

Marge (she/her) proudly bears a lifetime affinity for movement and languages, having spent most of her years calling upon the body as her chosen tool of artistic expression in addition to learning Spanish, Italian, and French. She holds a BFA in dance and choreography, a professional certificate of contemporary circus arts, and an E-RYT 500 YACEP Yoga Alliance credential. Her studies, creations, teachings, and performances have blown her all across the globe and today she finds herself sharing the intersection of her accrued disciplines in Richmond, VA.
