“And the day came when the risk to remain tight

in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” - Anais Nin

Indulge your soul with curated excursions and delicious meals (local, ethical, and vegan-friendly). Visit a healing cenote, the mystical Mayan Ruins, and a stylish Tulum beach club. Enjoy ample free time by taking in the lush Caribbean views, receiving a massage, reading in a hammock, or adventuring on a jungle bike ride to a secluded beach.

Dive deeper with writing circles and sacred ceremonies to practice listening to your inner voice of truth. Reemerge feeling connected and inspired to live soulfully in your daily life. In addition to your stay, Leslie will be available for personal yoga and writing sessions. Book a discovery call with her to discuss these offerings during your retreat.

Come, disconnect, recharge, and renew yourself in the Mayan Riviera. Each morning will begin with an energizing mediative flow practice and end with a calming Yin, Restorative, or yoga Nidra practice. This retreat is for everyone. Offering modifications for everybody. The classes combine flow, alignment, strength, and relaxation. Find balance on and off your yoga mat, and leave the retreat feeling rejuvenated.

The itinerary is curated by your local hosts, proud Mexicans who are passionate about teaching others about Mexican culture while having a lot of fun doing it. The itinerary offers a beautiful Mayan sound bowl therapy session for the opening ceremony amongst the ocean breeze, perfect for a spiritual and mental cleanse.

There is a tour to a cenote, a freshwater sinkhole in the middle of the jungle, a tour to some ancient Mayan ruins and lunch and beach day at a pristine beach club in Tulum, a one-hour massage session on the beach, a night out in Playa del Carmen on the famous Fifth Avenue, and of course, daily sunrise and sunset practices overlooking the Caribbean waters. Whether you are cliff jumping in the jungle or reading a book on a hammock under a palm tree, the itinerary has the perfect balance between adventure and relaxation.
