Yoga and Circus Eco-voyage 2015 with Catherine Nehme and David Castillo

February 28-March 7, 2015

Come experience unforgettable moments with your family - and newfound friends - in a magical spot by the Pacific Ocean in Mexico. We offer you a unique opportunity to retreat with your children if you choose, to practice Vinyasa Flow yoga with Catherine while the kids are in a playful Circus workshop with David...and finish the days gathering together again over a healthy, organic meal.

Join us on our journey to pure peaceful pleasure in a part of the world most visited by sea turtles, whales, dolphins, birds. You’ll stay at luxurious, secluded, sustainable Playa Viva -- only 30 min away from Zihuatanejo and its international airport, yet completely immersed in nature.

For a preview of your experience, please watch this video filmed during an earlier retreat led by Catherine at Playa Viva.

While this retreat is family-friendly, singles and childless couples are very welcome also.
