Our goal is to train the mind and improve the structure and function of the brain.
This retreat was designed specifically for mental health professionals who treat and manage clients suffering from stress-related disorders, such as clinical depression, bipolar disorders, addictive behavior, PTSD, sexual abuse, and loss of a loved one.
However, the retreat is appropriate for anyone interested in learning lifelong modalities that can be summoned at any time to reduce their levels of pernicious stress.

Meet Jaime R. Carlo-Casellas, PhD
Jaime Carlo-Casellas, Ph.D. (a.k.a. Yogi Kabir), is the Founding Director of the Stress Management & Prevention Center in Rancho Mirage, California.
His reason for founding the Center was to help those who suffer from physical and emotional conditions, who feel depressed, and who are stuck and do not know which way to turn. To this end, he works closely with physicians and psychotherapists who treat stress-mediated conditions.

What Past Retreaters Think
The yoga and meditation retreats that Dr. Casellas offers have been of so much help to me that I have taken them three times. They have helped me immensely in changing my autopilot way of living into a more mindful way of life, including my mindful eating habits. Within a period of about three-month, I have managed to lose a significant amount of weight. I now feel so much better about myself.
- KS, R.N.
The yoga and meditation modalities that Dr. Casellas offers have, for all practical purposes, saved my life. Four years ago, I was in a car accident and was trapped in the car for over an hour before I was rescued. I just knew I was going to die. Since that time, I had suffered from PTSD, and several years of therapy had done little to help me. Then I went to Dr. Casellas, who showed me how to practice Trauma-Management Yoga. After several sessions with him I 'm beginning to regain all feelings in my legs and feet. What an amazing experience! I can now see that I am on my way to recovery
