BIO
The inward journey. In 2014, I landed my body in my first Vinyasa Class, not having a clue of the pathway I’d follow thereafter. I kept hearing, ‘show up, it gets easier, and I love you.’ These three elements on this path were extremely crucial in my interest in diving deeper into the practice. What followed the next two years was a journey inward, one that encouraged me to lean into discomfort, that growth was somewhere on the other side. So as I learned to manipulate my body into shapes that it’d never experienced before, I also began to unravel tight chords wrapped around my inner existence that were begging to be freed. I was certified to teach Vinyasa Yoga in 2016 and shortly thereafter began my career as a Yoga Instructor. My passion stems from the acknowledgement of being extremely uncomfortable in my body and mind, and learning how the rhythm and flow of the practice soothed both physically and emotionally. The ability to guide others on their own journey inward through this practice, is something I deeply cherish. Everything we seek is already within us. We practice mindful movement, physical and emotional alignment, with fluid breath to regulate and rediscover the things we thought were lost. Looking forward to holding space for those willing to journey inward, unravel, and explore the body, mind, and spirit connection!

Embrace new beginnings as you arrive in stunning Playa del Carmen

As you step into the serene embrace of the Riviera Maya, your journey of self-discovery begins. Here, you will shed the burdens of everyday life and fully immerse yourself in a transformative experience involving yoga, meditation, and more. Your first day unfolds as you transfer from the airport to the retreat center. Check in and then enjoy a gentle invitation to explore at your own pace, embracing the holistic surroundings and connecting with the mystical energy that permeates the air.

As the sun paints the sky in vibrant hues, the welcome ceremony marks the commencement of your inner odyssey. A harmonizing Yin practice anchors you in the present moment, setting the tone for the days ahead. The retreat's essence deepens as we gather in a circle to share our intentions, clearing the path for personal growth and healing. For those seeking a tailored journey, private sessions — be it Oracle Readings, Private Lessons, or Wellness Coaching — await, guiding you toward alignment and empowerment. As the day gracefully concludes with a nourishing dinner, the night sky unveils possibilities, allowing your spirit to roam freely. This is a time for you, a time to embrace your authenticity and begin your wellness voyage with a heart open to transformation and fulfillment.

Nurture your soul with ayurveda, vinyasa, cooking, and more

As the sun gently rises over the Riviera Maya, the day unfolds with meditation and invigorating vinyasa practice, allowing you to attune your body and spirit to the energy of this sacred place. Following this, a thoughtfully crafted journal prompt guides you on a reflective journey, fostering introspection and allowing you to learn new things about yourself. A nourishing breakfast then fuels both body and soul, preparing you for the deeper explorations that await.

As the day continues, attend an ayurveda workshop. An ancient holistic system of medicine originating in India, ayurveda focuses on maintaining balance and wellness through personalized dietary, lifestyle, and herbal practices. Immerse yourself in this historic wisdom before lunch and free time.

As evening rolls into the Riviera Maya, a captivating Cooking Lesson beckons. Here, you'll learn recipes and tap into a sense of self-care and passion for life. The day culminates with a shared dinner, a feast of both flavors and connections. As the night envelopes the sky, you're free to explore the enchanting surroundings or bask in the quietude of your inner world, savoring this opportunity for growth, alignment, and exploration of your soul's purpose.

Enjoy a mostly free day as you continue expanding into the future

Ignite inner flames with a cacao ceremony and find closure with community

Awaken to the final full day of the retreat and prepare to ignite your inner flames, giving you lasting energy that you can bring home with you tomorrow. As always, we begin with morning meditation and vinyasa, awakening your spirit to the fullness of the present moment. Our daily journal prompt will then allow you to capture these evolving reflections. Following breakfast, free time and a pause for lunch pause unfolds. The day's unfurls further as the evening approaches, adorned with the warmth of a shared dinner.

As twilight descends, we'll begin a series of ceremonies that will provide closure as this amazing experience comes to an end. A cacao ceremony beckons, leading you on a sensory voyage that merges ancient traditions with modern transcendence. The evening crescendos with a profound closing circle and fire gathering, where hearts converge and stories intertwine like flames, igniting a deep sense of community. Finally, under a starlit sky, we will attend a releasing ceremony that will guide you towards letting go and trusting the path you've embarked upon. This day's journey is a celebration of the vibrant spirit within, guiding you towards the threshold of profound alignment and empowerment.
