About Wandering Yogi Retreats

We all have wander within us, just waiting to get out. And see what there is to see...

 

To be transported to a far off land that has been 'only but a dream'. And have the time and space to explore this place with every little bit of our being. To savor the intricate flavors of foods that makes us moan with mouthgasm. To smell exotic flowers and aromas that make us feel so high we want to reach up and touch the sky. And dance free. And roll around on the ground and heal ourselves through deep belly laughter. Tickling our fancy's in the friskiest of ways. And creating our own fairytales with all kinds of endings. And maybe, just maybe feeling the call to reach out on a limb of a tree to do something we've never dared to do before...

 

We encourage wandering both globally and in our own backyards to wake up your imagination and creativity, to nourish you so you can help nourish the world around you. We seek to curate and create luxurious organic experiences where you feel free to be yourself, enthralled to feel your bare feet kiss the earth and hands to kiss the sky, and hungry to taste all that life has to offer… 

 

Wander with us, experience the lifestyle.

About Fally Love Weiss

My first taste of yoga was watching VHS tapes in my bedroom because yoga was still somewhat on the fringe back then, and studios were NOT on every corner.  And I was hooked!  I had never felt anything like it!  In 2005, I took my first TT with Ganga White and Tracy Rich, and realized that I was not just stepping into some poses, but exploring a whole lifestyle.  A way of being.  In that training, I was introduced to Thai Massage and 2 months later, I was enrolled in massage school.  I was REALLY hooked!  And so, began my deep dive into the field of bodywork.  I was a committed Ashtanghi,  gratefully and humbly practicing Mysore with Tim Miller.  At the same time I was delving into my HHP and falling in love with every new modality I was exposed to.  I graduated massage school in 2007 with over 1200 hours and specializations in Thai Massage, Relational Somatics and Craniosacral therapy.  

 

These last 13 years of practicing and learning yoga & massage has been a wandering journey, full of beauty and challenges.  I have traveled to India and Thailand to deepen my practice and sit with my teachers.  I have attended thousands of hours of trainings, workshops and retreats; humbly sitting with masters like Arjan Pichest, Shiva Rea, Saul David Raye and Kaline Kelly.  I have taught numerous classes and workshops and retreats all over the west coast of United States, as well as Hawaii, Tulum MX, Chiang Mai, Thailand and Malaysia.  I have happily and passionately shared yoga and massage with thousands of people across this big blue planet!

 

And still, the biggest gifts and most profound realizations have come in the still moments, when I'm consciously witnessing my own breath.  So, I strive to be open, and listen and let the wisdom of my body, and of our bodies speak.  I will forever consider myself a student and continue learning and growing and evolving with this sweet gift of breath and movement, of yoga and massage.  

 

What nourishes you? 
I am most nourished in the those authentic moments of connection with myself, with nature and with other creatures.  When I see people giving of their hearts with complete abandon because there is no other way to be than just pure love!  That shit lights me up!  Authenticity, honesty and raw courage nourish me.  And green juice.  Cuz, micronutrients.  

 

What are three words you would use to describe yourself? 

Loving Silly Adventurous

 

Who has had the most influence on who you are today? 

My dad taught me unconditional love and the infinite potential that is housed inside a seed.  And we are all seeds.  And we get plant seeds everyday in our thoughts, actions, deeds.  My mom taught me commitment and follow through, and inspired me with her ability to reimagine and recreate her life.  For those things, and an indescribable amount more, I am humbled.  My family has been and will always be my biggest lessons and biggest influence.

About Jess McGimsey

Yoga is something that I never expected to love.  I came about it randomly in my late teens as something to add to a fitness regime. That first class was awkward and oddly refreshing. I couldn't explain it, but I felt like a better person.  By 2010, I had devoted my life to sharing the gifts of yoga and opened my first studio, Peace Love and Yoga (PLAY). Immediately, we were embraced by the community and PLAY took on a life of it's own.  Four years and a baby later,  I was struggling to find my own identity within the studio. It was during what I would call one of the hardest seasons of my life, that I finally learned what it meant to truly live your yoga.  To let it not be something that you just do on your mat, but a way of living. Finding my true self, and learning to trust that all is coming has been my wandering journey.

My teaching now comes form a place of inquiry and encouraging the relationship with your true self. I still own PLAY in CA, and I am grateful to also share my love for yoga with the central Texas community through Living Beyond the Mat. I am a forever student and am certified as an E-RYT 500.  

What nourishes you? 

Yoga in all forms, my children (Wyatt and Ella), and the excitement of doing something new whether it be exploring a new city, creating a new business venture, or trying something I've never done before. 

What are three words you would use to describe yourself? 

Passionate, Loving, Organized

Who has had the most influence on who you are today? 
Definitely my children. They have both taught me to be patient, to be open and to see life in the present. Wyatt is so inquisitive, and makes me stop and wonder, why is this like that, or what happens if we try this? While Ella is just over 1 year, she keeps me on my toes, and teaches me that life (and her) are completely unpredictable.  I love being their momma, and the person I've become with them.
