Magical Weekend at Austin Yoga Retreat

By AFM Staff – February 15, 2018


Austin Fit Staff got their community zen on at a two-day yoga retreat, “Nama’stay at the Native,” hosted by beloved Austin yoga teachers, Lizzie Aguirre and Gustavo Padron.

When we arrived at the Native Hostel at noon on Saturday, we quickly checked in then headed to a beautiful space upstairs to enjoy an energizing flow co-led by Lizzie and Gustavo. After shower and changing, we were put into four groups and then given instructions for a scavenger hunt around town (with riddles including us to Austin hotspots including Blenders and Bowls, Juice Society, and lululemon. The final stop was Zilker Park, where we all reconvened for a colorful Holi Festival and more fun team-building activities.


We went back to the hotel to clean up then headed to Casa de Luz for a delicious plant-based dinner, followed by a fun night at the Native.

The next day we woke up for more meditation and juicy yoga, followed by group activities promoting spiritual growth and connectedness. After 24 hours, everyone in the group felt like close friends. We left feeling rejuvenated and inspired.


Lizzie will be hosting these retreats at Native every quarter with different co-leads, so keep your eye out for more to come! We cannot recommend a better way to spend a weekend full of love and growth here in Austin.
