Mexico Yoga Therapy Intensive

January 30-February 6, 2021

 Discover rest and relaxation by the ocean while invigorating and restoring your mind and body in lively yoga classes. Learn foundational yoga poses, sequences, and the principles of good alignment and breathing. We will focus on allowing relaxation to enter our bodies and minds to reset us for the upcoming year. This is De’s 8th year of offering this retreat and it is a magical place that allows stress to melt away and real changes to take place. Many of the intensive participants have come multiple years to experience this healing place and yoga therapy intensive. This year Brian Spielmann will be teaching morning meditation. We will practice meditation on the beach and in the Shala prior to the morning sessions. Brian has over 30 years experience and De and Brian have taught over 5 retreats together

Location: We stay in Puerto Morelos-in the Yucatán. It’s a quant fishing village and has some of the best snorkeling. It has about 14 excellent restaurants in town where the food is clean and fresh (no one in 5 years has gotten sick) and walking distance from where we stay. Puerto Morelos is 20 minutes south of Cancun. There are many direct flights from Denver to Cancun. You book and pay for your own flight. I help arrange airport transportation to where we stay (it is an extra cost but we save money to transport together). We arrive on a Saturday and depart on a Saturday. Early to mid afternoon arrivals and departures work nice.The villa we stay in is sweet and rooms are double occupancy. There is an amazing yoga shala that is screened in with all the props. The beach is fantastic and right across the street.

Price: The retreat comes with 6 brunches (from the best restaurant in town) and 2 dinners, 10 Therapeutic Yoga classes, meditation sessions and your lodging. That first night we have a welcome dinner usually 7 pm. The Friday before we leave we have another dinner. Sunday through Friday we have a brunch. These are all included in the intensive price. The total for the Mexico Intensive is $1600 per person with cash or check or $1650 per person with credit card. Rooms are double occupancy.

We often take a group day trip on Wednesday. We have gone to Tulum, amazing freshwater cenote’s, Isla Holbox, and Isla Mujares. This is an additional cost and optional trip. We always have a blast!

One afternoon we go to the national (gorgeous) coral reef for a group snorkeling trip. It usually runs $30. It is an extra cost to go.
