FEBRUARY 13 - 19, 2016

Take your yoga practice to the next level with Michelle Cordero! Join us on our deserted beach just outside of Zihuatanejo, Mexico for a 6 night Yoga Retreat!

Daily deep flow classes will combine vinyasa flow, Forrest techniques, core strength and breath awareness to help students develop greater strength, flexibility and inner awareness. Expect the morning practices to be dynamic, mindful and challenging. In the late afternoon, we will have an array of practices designed to bring ease into the body and calm the mind. These afternoon practices will be slower and will include pranayama (breathwork) as well as meditation. A few afternoons will feature special topics like: inversions, chakras & the energetic body and Michelle’s unique creation, Sensual Yoga.

Our retreat center is small and intimate, space is limited and will likely sell out fast! Your $500 non-refundable "Placeholder" deposit will ensure you a spot!

What To Expect

Balancing Strength with Grace

Our Retreat Center is located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, nestled between the drama and beauty of the Sierra Madre mountains and the sparkling waters of the Pacific Ocean. Proximity to these natural wonders provides easy access to a host of activities – from swimming to hiking to scuba diving to whale and bird watching, to horseback riding and so much more!

Enjoy the environmentally-conscious resort with ecoluxury accommodations, each with a beachfront view and just steps away from the breath-taking blue ocean! Fall asleep and awaken to the sound of the waves... here you will truly be one with The Elements!

In addition to twice daily yoga with Michelle, we will also enjoy organic, farm to table meals (all individual dietary needs accommodated), and the opportunity to become immersed in nature. Whales and dolphins are known to frequent this private beach in February, and we will also have the opportunity to partake in baby turtle releases! Optional activities also include volunteering in the turtle sanctuary and giving back to the local community if that is something that calls to you. 

This well rounded retreat will balance strength building with relaxation and connection to nature. You will leave feeling stronger and rejuvenated, with a home practice tailored for you.
