Rukhsana's Wellness & Heavenly Retreat

About This Center

A family run wellness center offering a holistic getaway to those who need a space to listen to themselves and a place to be free of judgment. 

Rukhsana’s Wellness Heavenly Retreat offers a diverse range of courses and workshops, while rejuvenating your authentic self, mind, body and soul, under a Mexican sun. Set atop a hill, with endless ocean views surrounded by untouched wilderness, we offer holistic vegetarian food and isolation from stresses of daily living. At one with nature, an extension of the divinity, your experience may include a retreat, daily Meditation or Yoga Classes, an Ayurvedic Spa Treatment, a Meditation or Ayurvedic Workshop, or a Yogic Holiday.  

A yogic holiday gives you the time and space to focus on yourself.  Originally designed by Swami Vishnudevananda, a student of Swami Sivananda, this stay provides you the space and guidance to enjoy a balanced yogic lifestyle.

Pass through the gates of Rukhsana’s Wellness & Heavenly Retreat Center and immerse yourself in natures radiant tranquility, enjoy incredible vegetarian/vegan cuisine, and deepen your meditation and yoga practice daily.  Relax, rejuvenate and replenish your mind, body and soul while treating yourself to a blissful, self- indulgent holiday.

“Rukhsana is the real-deal, compassion, knowledge, spirit of love and giving. She gives you the tools to better cope in a difficult, stressful world. Cannot say enough about her, her husband Arshad and daughter Sameena."

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
