            Winter Renewal Retreat                       in Tulum, Mexico 

January 28th – February 4th, 2017  

Recover and rejuvenate from the holidays and those brutal January temps with a week in Tulum, Mexico to focus on rebuilding your inner fire. Myself and teacher extraordinaire Baron Carr will guide you through a week aimed to help you get your groove back. Enjoy two classes daily (alternating between yoga, meditation and strength/conditioning) suited for all levels and abilities. We’ll also guide you through journaling and mind-body activities geared to help you hone your vision for the year. This will allow you to return home refreshed, inspired and focused, keeping you resilient throughout the new year. Located on the Yucatan peninsula just 2 hours south of Cancun, Tulum is perfect for eco-friendly travelers who also want eco-chic. The cozy nature of Shambala Petit Hotel, limited to 20 people, makes your whole experience feel like home. Their yoga studio, right on the water, is one of the most magical spots to practice yoga in all of Tulum. With plenty of free time in-between classes you can relax on the white sand beach, enjoy one of the many spa services or take an excursion to the Mayan ruins, Cenotes (natural groundwater pools) and more.

Surf, Yoga and Adventure Retreat in Northern Nicaragua 


Tap into that part of you craving excitement and exploration, in addition to relaxation, when you vacation. This retreat is for those who want something off the beaten path. Rather than face crowded beaches with high prices geared to tourists, explore this exquisite part of Central America before everyone else discovers its charm. Most people don’t realize Nicaragua is the safest country in Central America. This area in the Northern part of the country is quiet and clean with warm water, endless beaches and volcanoes in the distance. Not only can you hike the volcanos, you have the opportunity to VOLCANO SURF, which should be at the top of every adventurer’s bucket list! But don’t let that overshadow surfing in the ocean waves, perfect for both beginner and advanced surfer. If surfing isn’t your thing, enjoy a massage or the pool with nearby hammock and the serenity that comes from not being glued to a computer screen (internet is limited here, allowing you the ultimate escape of unplugging). You’ll love everything about your home for the week at El Coco Loco Eco Resort, from the friendly staff to the outstanding food which is plentiful and caters to all dietary preferences. Let’s not leave out the twice daily yoga lead by myself and the phenomenal Randy Ferguson, who will guide you with his unique style of hands-on restorative classes. He’ll also be offering Pranassage sessions, which are a creative synthesis of yoga and bodywork.

$1,400 per person (for triple occupancy) 

$1,600 per person (for double occupancy)

$2,600 per person single occupancy
