We Brought 40 Yogis To The Desert

We Brought 40 Yogis To The Desert

And Here's What Went Down At Our Alo Family Retreat

We invited 40 of our closest yoga friends from all around the world (seriously, we got #thetwomartinas from Italy, @sjanaelise from Australia, @nayitavp from Miami & @chintwins from New York—and so many other incredible yogis) to come hang with us in the desert to relax, refresh, reset… and even get some good Instagram photos along the way! Here's what went down.

Day 1

Sunrise shoot? Check.

Poses with yogis from all over the country? Check. (Just right here we have Utah, Florida, North Carolina and California representing.)

Morning yoga taught by Josh Kramer, followed by everyone jumping into the pool? See for yourself.

Poolside hangs? Check. Check. Check.

It was seriously dreamy getting our Alo family together for a few fabulous days at the Merv Griffin Estate. We set intentions over dinner and learned that some people wanted to make unique connections with every single person there, while some just wanted to be 100% present, and others couldn't wait to learn how to nail that Acro pose with @acrowithjon. The best part? You could actually do it all. This place was a dream. We saw years and years of friendships formed on Instagram, come to life IRL. From online on Instagram to on the mat in the desert, we couldn't get enough of all the love surrounding us. We all had the feels.

Day 2

The next day was almost better than the first. Another awe-inspiring day of constant eye candy of yoga goodness. We ate organic food, drank out of delicious coconuts and partied under the moon... Dance circle included!

Morning meditation taught by Aubry Marie? It was so on.

Veggie burgers + poolside massages? Yep.

Our friends over at Wildfire Initiative came out to lead us through some incredible breathwork and meditation. We all left truly in tune with our breath.

All in all, we're feeling incredibly #blessed. We got to bring our Alo family together for few days of self-love, incredible poses, dance parties and yummy dinners—AND we all left feeling so incredibly excited to be a part of the Alo team (jersey included). #TEAMALO4LIFE.
