Along with hiking and yoga, 2 Pilates classes will be offered - Pilates is a lengthening and leaning exercise, very similar to yoga. For people who practice this incredible exercise, growing an inch or two is extremely common. Because of the core strength, breathing techniques, and range of motion you achieve with Pilates chronic back pain and other debilitating physical ailments decrease significantly. Pilates when done regularly is capable of creating an extremely new and exciting physical and mental well being.

More About Lacey Daunt with Lucia Yoga Retreat in Spain
Lacey Daunt was born and raised in a small quaint town on the eastern most tip of Long Island; Montauk. Living within a 5 minute walk from the ocean stemmed her irresistible love for the water (Surfing, free-diving and swimming are among some of her favorite water sports.) The cold winters in Montauk ultimately forced her away to a more tropical paradise; Hawaii.
Currently, she resides on the small island of Oahu. Being surrounded by fresh fruits and vegetables that are grown locally makes her vegan fruit-loving lifestyle simple. Lacey is extremely passionate about consuming a plant based diet without the use of any animal products. She spends her time running a blog intended to educate others on food and lifestyle choices and how they affect our health, other beings and our planet.
Along with the ocean and mother nature, Lacey had always had a love for holistic healing, energy and exercise. In 2012, she went through intensive training to become a certified Pilates instructor via Power Pilates, NYC. In 2013, she attended the largest holistic nutrition school in the country, Institute for Integrative nutrition, where she was taught over hundreds of dietary theories and life methods. During this time she worked alongside QRA (Quantum Reflex Analysis) Practitioner Karen Panish where they tested the human body non-invasively using energy and organ frequencies to detect weakness' in the body. Lacey also worked as a nutritionist for the company MINDBODY during a three month wellness challenge for employees where she guided them to find their personal path to ultimate healing. With her Health Coaching degree, experience in the health field and Pilates certification she began taking on clients personally and globally via e-mail.
I would like to work with Lucia Yoga Retreats because I aspire to spread the message of yoga throughout the globe. The message that moving freely with ones breath is what life is all about. The mind/body connection developed through yoga is useful in all areas of ones life.
One year later, she decided to follow her passions on another healing journey to Bali, Indonesia to become a certified yoga instructor. During this course, she was taught the true foundation of yoga that extends beyond the physical practice. She developed an understanding of the mind-body connection, meditation and enlightenment - a learning journey that made the trip a life-changing experience. After completing her 200 hour YTT in Bali, she returned back to her home in Hawaii. Lacey has now added yoga to her healing practice. She teaches all classes from static yin, to hatha, to fast paced vinyasa flows. She specializes in private lessons by creating personal sequences for individuals. Lacey has always held bio-individuality - the concept that every person is uniquely different - above all. She personalizes her 1:1 health coaching, pilates lessons and yoga lessons to fit the individual at hand. Lacey primarily bases her practice in Hawaii, but travels back to New York to teach in the summers.
