Mexico Yoga Retreat with Dev and Linda

Your TourHero

Devon Watson Hero

Hello! My name is Dev, and I am an international yoga educator currently rooted in the Pacific Northwest. I lead transformative retreats, workshops, and teacher trainings that invite students to embody their highest potential through the luminary practice that is yoga. My teachings are drawn from traditional roots, mainly the Biṣṇu Ghosh lineage, Iyengar, and the eight limb system of Aṣṭāṅga Yoga.

My own love for this practice was born out of a deep curiosity toward spirituality, Eastern philosophy, and the meaning of life, prompting me to leave behind traditional pursuits and embrace a yogic path at a young age. By 2015, I knew this was my calling, and I left college to teach and study yoga full time. For the last decade, I have taught and studied both in the US and across the globe, collecting a wealth of unique experiences and a well rounded perspective that informs all I do.

Day 1 · February 10, 2025

The adventure begins!

Upon arrival at the airport (you can arrive anytime but before 3pm is best), you're whisked away on a group transfer to your accommodation, Ekumal! As the warm breeze of the jungle welcomes you, your dream week begins with a relaxing arrival day as we all settle in and get oriented at our home for the week. As the evening unfolds, we will come together for a special welcome dinner, followed by an opening ceremony where your retreat leaders Dev and Linda will welcome you, give introductions, and answer any questions you may have about the week to come!

Day 2 · February 11, 2025

Diving deeper; a day of practice in paradise

We kick off our morning with an invigorating sunrise morning practice, setting the tone for a perfect day ahead. After nourishing your body with a wholesome breakfast, we have a nice pocket of free time to rest, swim in the pool, book a massage or do whatever your heart desires! Later in the afternoon, we will immerse ourselves into a workshop all about inversions. Here we will overcome fears, explore how to advance and build upon inversion postures, and embrace the playful energy of trying new things. Conclude the day with a delicious dinner, followed by a cozy circle around the fire under the starlit sky.

Day 3 · February 12, 2025

Bliss on the beach

It's a beach day! After our sunrise yoga session we will have breakfast and get ourselves ready to hit the beach for the rest of the day until dinner. Once we are at the beach you have the option to enjoy a packed lunch provided by the retreat or head out to explore a local restaurant and treat yourself to something else while we're in town! As we return to Ekumal in the evening, we will get settled and regroup for a delicious dinner together.

After an energizing morning practice and a tasty breakfast, we will be on our way to the crystal-clear waters of this natural wonder, surrounded by ancient limestone formations and lush jungle greenery. You can choose to swim and explore the glittering blue waters of the cenote or simply bask in the tranquility of this stunning sacred space. Return to Ekumal in the afternoon for a light lunch, followed by a flexibility workshop that will take your mobility to new spaces. After our workshop we will enjoy free time until dinner, and a circle around the fire to conclude our day.

Day 5 · February 14, 2025

Embrace serenity and prepare to say farewell

Our final full day together begins with another fiery morning practice as the sunrises over us in the jungle. After breakfast, you have a choice to stay back and chill at the resort during free time, or opt to take a shuttle into downtown Tulum for some shopping, local restaurants, or a walk about town to admire the culture and local community. Then we gather for one last special dinner, where we celebrate the memories made and friendships created in our week together. The day ends with a closing ceremony around the fire pit.

Day 6 · February 15, 2025

Departure and reflection

As the final morning unfolds, we savor the final sunrise practice in our beautiful shala, centering our energy for the travels ahead. After a leisurely breakfast, take time to pack and prepare for departure.
