Mexico>The Align Retreat: A Wellness Immersion for Women in Dentistry

Do you live off of four cups of coffee a day and still feel exhausted? Do you workout regularly and still can’t get rid of that nagging back pain? Do you read all of the personal development books and still feel disconnected? As dentistry professionals, we dedicate our lives to serving others; helping patients, leading teams, and supporting our families and communities. We tend to take care of others before we take care of ourselves, but can’t pour from an empty cup. This can lead us down a path of stress, chronic pain, burnout.

Embark on this transformative 6-day retreat tailored exclusively for women in dentistry, set against the picturesque shores of Playa del Carmen to realign your mind, body, and soul. Nestled between the serene coastline and jungle, our retreat combines luxurious accommodations with expert-guided sessions and adventurous excursions, creating a harmonious blend of relaxation and personal growth. Daily sessions will focus on yoga, mindfulness, ergonomic practices, and building a wellness toolbox tailored to the unique demands of dentistry professionals.

Escape the demands of daily life, join a supportive community of like-minded women, and leave with practical tools to enrich your overall well-being and realign your mind, body, and soul. Book now to reserve a spot!

Timeline

Details

Day 1 · October 11, 2024

Set intentions as you arrive in Mexico

Slip into the rhythm of the tide as you roll into your seaside accommodation, your home away from home from home for the next six days. Check in, drop off your bags, and head to a group introduction session where you'll get to meet your fellow travelers. Feel the good vibes envelop you as you talk; you're all here to grow and create a positive space with one another. Then, we'll head to a welcome ceremony where intentions will be discussed. With all of this complete, a delicious dinner will cap off this first day.

Day 2 · October 12, 2024

Get to know your soul on the first full retreat day

Good morning! It's the first full day of the retreat, and we're going to spend our time wisely and gracefully. Greet the day with morning yoga, meditation, and breathwork, calming your nervous system and aligning both your mind and body with the energy of the day. A nourishing brunch follows, after which we will head to a wellness workshop. Here, you will be guided through gaining a new, deeper understanding of your soul and aligning your mind. The rest of the morning and the afternoon will then be free before we complete the activities of the day with a cacao ceremony, a sacred ritual where you will consume raw cacao, fostering introspection, spiritual connection, and emotional healing. Eat some dinner as the sun sets over the ocean and then head to bed!

Day 3 · October 13, 2024

Delight your senses with a cenote excursion and sound healing

The magic of Mexico beckons you to rise this morning. We'll begin once again with yoga, meditation and breathwork to create inner stability. Then, we'll head out on an excursion to a cenote! Cenotes are natural sinkholes or limestone caves filled with crystal-clear groundwater, and they are completely enchanting. This will be a great time to commune with Mother Nature and find some inner peace. When the excursion is complete, it's back to the retreat where we'll enjoy a calm evening and a sound bath accompanied by yoga nidra.

Day 4 · October 14, 2024

Focus on the physical with a cold plunge and another wellness workshop

Today's morning routine is slightly different than normal. After a bit of movement, we will engage in a cold plunge! This will help stimulate circulation, reduce muscle inflammation, and promote a feeling of alertness and rejuvenation in the body. We'll then head to our next Wellness Workshop, a logical extension of the work we began on day 2 of the retreat. Rather than focusing on our minds, however, we will find alignment within our bodies. A break for free time will then lead us into dinner and a tranquil session of yin yoga and guided meditation.

Day 5 · October 15, 2024

Indulge in the beauty of Sian Ka'an and release negativity in a temazcal ceremony

We've reached the final full day of our retreat. With limited time left, we're going to spend it in the most uplifting, powerful way possible! The day begins with breakfast before we head out for a hike at Sian Ka'an. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Sian Ka'an encompasses a vast biosphere reserve with diverse ecosystems, ancient Mayan ruins, and a rich array of wildlife, offering a unique opportunity for ecological and cultural exploration. We'll have an amazing time moving through these remarkable landscapes before returning to the accommodation to relax through the afternoon. The final event of the day will be a temazcal sweat lodge ceremony where you will release impurities, negativity, and whatever else may be holding you back. After one final dinner together, we'll find closure in a Wellness Workshop focused on our souls.

Day 6 · October 16, 2024

Depart from Mexico after a transformative journey

We've reached the end of our time here in Mexico. A morning wellness session followed by a closing ceremony will wrap up our experience before we head to the airport. Thanks so much for joining us! Safe travels, be well, and we can't wait to hear about your continued progress once you're back home.
