Please join us for a perfect blend of practice and play; sun and sea; explore and restore.
We have chosen to return to silky, white beaches of the Ancient Mayan coastline of Tulum, Mexico. The natural landscape there is a unique combination of beach, jungle, lagoon and cave. One of the things that makes Tulum so irresistible, and so perfectly suited for spiritual pursuits, is that there are lime-rich, underground rivers flowing beneath us. These rivers carry a positive ionic charge that helps us to drop away from the stresses of our daily life and into the ever-present ease and contentment within us.
We will be staying at Casa Violeta (www.casavioletatulum.com.) Violeta is a very special place. Karla, the owner, has been able to retain the essence of the Tulum from decades ago (relaxed and carefree), while still offering luxury where is matters (fine Italian linens and some of the most delicious food on the strip)
Daily Schedule -
The structure of the retreat is simple -
light breakfast of fruit and coffee/tea
morning asana practice (1.5-2 hours)
free time to enjoy the expansive, silky, white sand beach; the clear, crisp Caribbean Sea, local adventures (paddle boarding, snorkeling, scuba diving, kite surfing, kayaking, biking to nearby ruins); spa therapies (including sound healing, indigenous sweat lodge, and some of the best reflexology on the planet)
evening subtle practices of pranayama, chanting, meditation - (approximately 1 hr)
dinner - we will share a group dinner on the first night of the retreat at Violeta; the rest of the dinners will be taken as you like (although I have found the we usually organize a few more group dinners off site)
The schedule of the retreat is meant to be relaxed, offering each participant the opportunity to create the experience that will be most healing and beneficial. The only requirement is to join for our morning and evening classes, other than that, the choice is yours…
Casa Violeta has only 13 rooms available - 8 rooms are beachfront (or beach view) and 5 have a garden view. Each room is unique and situated quite close to the Sea. You can look at the rooms on the website and follow up with any questions or concerns.
The cost of the trip includes everything mentioned above , double occupancy starts at 1910, single occupancy starts at 2520 (a few rooms offer the option for triple occupancy). There are two rooms which can be offered at a more discounted rate; these rooms will be given according to true need.
A non-refundable $900 deposit is required to secure your room (and since each room is unique, first response gets first pick).
We will help you to organize your airfare, airport transfer and answer any other questions you may have. Try to arrive as early as you can on the 7th and leave in the mid-late afternoon on the 12th.
I hope every single one of you will be there...it will be a magical time of reflection, revitalization and real enjoyment.
