La Calera is a refurbished old lime factory founded in 1951. It is currently a home to artists' studios, business initiatives, and social programs. La Calera has beautiful lofts that are magical and have their own perks. The loft was constructed using recycled materials from the same factory, retaining the industrial architecture that originated it.
All the lofts have a large bedroom with a private terrace and an exclusive access. They have a queen bed and a sofa bed. There, you'll find everything you need around you. There is a large front shaded terrace which is an ideal place for a pet, a drink, and talks. Most lofts are designed for two people. If requested, sheets can be given for the single sofa bed for an extra cost. Wooded surroundings, privacy, and tranquility allow you to enjoy your stay in absolute comfort.
During this retreat you will enjoy yoga and meditation sessions, once or twice a day, as well as excursions, and an unforgettable culinary experience.

Working as a registered massage therapist for 15 years was an education for Cathy. She likes to integrate that knowledge into the sequence of each class and use it while guiding the practice. She likes to think that her creative experiences enhance the awareness of student's movement patterns in class. Everyone brings a different set of experiences with them that impact every aspect of their being. She is so grateful for the wonderful teachers who have shared their wisdom; Baron Baptiste, Sarah Powers, Paul Grilley, Ana Forrest, Patrick Creelman, and incredible teachers in Vancouver and afar.
This yoga retreat will take place in an authentic and traditional Oaxaca town in Mexico.
