February 6 - 13, 2020




Sold Out!

Retreat Details

Imagine seven peaceful nights in a cabin by the ocean on the exotic tropical coast of Mexico. Spending your days nourishing your body and soul with Somatics, Yoga Nidra and delicious healthy meals. Feeling the warm sand under your feet as you stroll the secluded private beach. When you get too hot, taking a dip in the refreshingly warm ocean waters. Or relaxing in a hammock in the shade with a cool drink.

Sound like a nice way to spend a week in February? Let your vacation be a "Play-cation".

Join Kirsten and Rob in Mexico for Yoga & Somatics in Paradise!

You will be playing and staying where the jungle meets the ocean at the beautiful Punta Monterrey Beach Resort. 

Start your day with a gentle Somatic Yoga class in the breathtaking Yoga Studio overlooking ocean and jungle. All yoga classes are skilfully led by Rob or Kirsten and appropriate for all body types and levels of experience.

After a nourishing breakfast in the scenic outdoor dining area, there will be a variety of options on offer during the week. You can attend a morning workshop to learn a home practice of Somatics and Yoga Nidra (conscious yogic sleep). There will be some optional excursions to explore sights and experience adventures in the area. Or, you are welcome to wander the trails, walk the beach or relax on your own.
