“If you have never been on a yoga retreat (or even if you have in the past), give serious consideration to joining Erica on her next retreat. She will make you feel at home even if you are thousands of miles away, she will make you feel the sense of community by connecting you more fully to your inner soul through asana and breathing practice, while also connecting you with the outside world by exploring all that the beautiful culture and people have to offer. I promise you won’t regret taking the time out of your crazy daily life to reset, reconnect and refresh your body, mind and soul”. -Larissa Noto (Bali, 2017)

Retreat Leaders
Erica Arcé

200hr & 300hr RYT

Erica’s classes are strong, athletic and flow-y. Erica’s classes offer a philosophical/spiritual component. One can count on consistent mind, body, breath cues which are creatively and intelligently sequenced. Alignment cues abound and space is always allowed for intuitive movement. Chill dubstep, atmospheric beats, and traditional yoga music merge with the energy of each class.

Creative and inspired, Erica has a 200hr and 300hr yoga teacher certification from Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health and is Director of Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Trainings at Kripalu. When Erica’s not immersed in teaching, she enjoys worshipping the sun, spending quality time with loved ones, watching sci-fi movies and getting right-brained at the art studio.

Jay Karlinski


Jay Karlinski, a 500 hour certified yoga teacher, is a world traveler, explorer, and committed yogi for nearly 20 years. Jay lived at the world renowned Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health for 2 years, teaching and eventually directing their yoga teacher training program. His classes are focused on creating strength and stability through dynamic movement and energizing balance postures. Jay has traveled the world in search of adventure and experience. He served in the Peace Corps in Guatemala, living in a small, rural mountain village. He taught English in Thailand, lived in an orphanage in India. He lived, worked, and played in Mexico and Jamaica. He climbed Machu Pichu, explored the Amazonian rain forests. He trekked through the jungles of Borneo in search of the wild orangutan, rode his bicycle (with his dog) across the USA. He paraglided in the Andes, bungee jumped in Costa Rica, surfed (poorly) huge waves in Indonesia. He skydived, scuba dived, zip lined, and spelunked. He has hiked all the great National Parks of America and Canada, got lost in Tazmania, snorkeled in Fiji, and volunteered with Operation Smile in Vietnam. He has led yoga teacher trainings in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York. He has explored Laos, Cambodia, Bolivia, Australia, and countless places in between. Through all of the adventures and all of the experiences, yoga has been the constant. Jay believes that a truly effective yoga practice informs all life experiences, by bringing increased awareness and aliveness to all that we do.
