The Retreat

As we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of our every day lives, it's easy to feel exhausted and overwhelmed. Join us for five days of reconnection and rejuvenation. With the guidance of Erika Ruiz and Alicia Tillman, this retreat will give you the opportunity to practice yoga daily on our beautiful beachfront Yoga Shala. There will be delicious meals, a workshop, a temazcal, and much more.

Erika Ruiz

In 2014, I received my 200RYT from Life Power Yoga by Kest. Then in 2015, I completed the YogaOne Teacher Mentorship program and began YogaOne's 300RYT Advanced Teacher Training. I guide my students through graceful sequences that are physically challenging and transforming through the connection of breath and movement. By infusing the power of intention and self-love I aim to guide my students to explore both fluidity and stillness in their asanas. I help students subtly expand outside of their comfort zones to move with intention in practice and in life, ultimately giving them tools to achieve their full potential both on and off the mat.

I am a 500hr Registered Yoga Teacher with The Yoga Alliance. With a focus on yoga for athletes and performance, my intention to create a practice to benefit the movement in all body types from professional to the everyday athlete.

Through yoga, I have found myself on and off the mat. The ability to tap into my breath and find peace anywhere is one of the greatest gifts yoga has given me. I would love to help people around the world find their peace and balance on and off their mat. This includes you, so I will see you on your mat.
