About Us

"Face the sun - nap in a hammock - breathe salty air - go with the flow - drift - soften into hot sand - sway like coconut palm - float on a balmy breeze - let go - unwind - relax."

We love Nature

Do not think = be happy!

Yoga says to embrace your core and enjoy the lightness of being. The coconut, our "Queen of Foods": The young coconut is a superfruit!
