About us

Join facilitator Heidi Dyer in the beautiful Mexican countryside for a retreat which allows you to disconnect from demands and distractions of the everyday in order to reconnect to your self, others, and the rhythms of nature. Enjoy daily yoga, vegetarian meals, afternoon workshops and evening meditation, as well as time to relax, wander and explore amidst the grounds of the historic Guapamacátaro Hacienda. 


For more than twenty years Heidi has been guiding individuals through the process of inquiry, self-discovery, and authentic expression. She is an artist, a teacher, a healer, and a dreamer.

Originally from the USA, Heidi has given herself over to her wanderlust and inherent curiosity to travel, study, volunteer, and teach all over the world. Recent adventures have taken her to Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Mexico, Bali, and Guatemala. Heidi has committed herself to a lifetime of learning about the body, movement, and the integration of the self. She has studied Dance extensively as well as various forms of movement and manual therapies such as: Yoga, Authentic Movement, Contact Improvisation, The Feldenkrais Method, Massage Therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy, and Energy Work. She holds an MFA in Dance, is a Certified Yoga Therapy Teacher, and a Licensed Massage Therapist.

The Guapamacátaro Hacienda is located in the culturally rich and peaceful Purepecha region of Mexico (northern Michocán state), 1.5 hours East from Morelia and 2.5 hours West from Mexico City. Nearby towns include Maravatío, Tlalpujahua and El Oro. It was one of the most productive haciendas during the Spanish Conquest, has been a family haven for 5 generations, and an active hub for the cultural and agricultural production of the area. The facilities, set on rural farmland, are comprised of living quarters for up to 10 people, several studios, large common areas and beautiful gardens.
