Be Love: Return to intrinsic rhythm // April 14-20, 2018

Join Corinna Rae and Leigha Butler in April 2018 for a beach yoga retreat in beautiful Tulum, Mexico at the all-inclusive Robinson Crusoe-reminiscent resort Amansala. You'll have plenty of time to lounge beach-side and play in the waves, as well as opportunities to explore the Mayan ruins and jungle landscape of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea - all while deepening your yoga practice, absorbing a gentle ocean breeze, and setting life-affirming daily intentions.

Ahhhhh, Tulum

I'm headed to Tulum, Mexico for the third year in a row, and I want you to experience it too! Join Corinna Rae and me for a beach yoga retreat at Amansala Resort this April. This is a chance to explore the Mayan ruins and jungle landscape of Mexico's Caribbean while deepening your yoga practice and living in rhythm with nature's cycles.

That depends... How many of the following statements are true for you?

  • I love yoga, and I have some experience (a little or a lot).
  • Flowing styles of yoga are great, but I also appreciate the slower forms (like gentle, restorative and yin yoga).
  • Learning how to live in rhythm with nature and with my own cycles sounds valuable to me.
  • I could really use some time to reset, replenish and get reinspired.

Did you answer YES to the above?

If so, there are only two questions left.

  1. Is the timing right?
  2. Can you work it into the budget?

If you're a yes and a yes, then sign up before there's no room left!

"I had a most beautiful experience in Tulum because of the generosity, skill, talent, warmth, and friendship of the two of you!" --Sue



Tulum Yoga Retreat Leigha Butler

Our guess is that YOU are already leading a life of compassionate action. Whether in your career or in your home, you are in the habit of generously giving your energy to those around you.

Be Love honors that inclination while also recognizing that those who lead lives of service need their cups filled too! Our aim is to support you as you renew your body & spirit and come into even better alignment with your values, gifts, and personal mission.

Think of this week as a time to renew your commitment to letting love light the way. Investing in YOU can feel like a daring thing to do, but we believe it is ESSENTIAL. Taking care of yourself makes it possible to serve humanity more effectively -- and you're needed right now.

"Leigha and Corinna are not just knowledgeable yoga teachers, they are yoga guides. I have long loved Leigha's intuitive sequencing and poetic cues. And I was pleased to get to know Corinna's deeply intentional, clear and creative teaching style. I embarked on this adventure craving a badly-needed tropical vacation, but I received so much more." 


The mission behind this retreat – Be Love – is to nourish the spiritual warrior in each of us. As yoga practitioners, we are already inclined to lead lives of compassionate action, and we aim to support you as you develop and awaken the super soul-dier within. Think of this week as a time to renew your commitment to letting love light the way.

We strike a balance between solo, reflective time and social time. Through self-care practices, intelligently sequenced warming flows, (optional) morning meditations, soft afternoon yoga, and powerful daily intentions, we will become the embodiment of love and the bricklayers of a cooperative human future.

The sea in Tulum is as bright an aquamarine color as you can imagine. The sunrise is beauty tough to capture on camera, and the friendly community is off the grid but features comfortable amenities, delicious food, and many healing services, from massage to clay baths to sweat lodges. This is a week to tap in to the rhythmic cycles inherent in nature as well as our own bodies, a week to shed what is no longer needed in service of a truer you.

Airport Code – “CUN” – Tulum is located about 75 miles south of the Cancun Airport. It takes about an hour and twenty minutes to get to our resort.

Getting from Cancun to Tulum – Amansala Resort is happy to arrange transportation for you from the airport to the resort. It’s a good idea to confirm this or ask about alternatives. There is a public bus, for instance; but we believe the resort’s shuttle is worth the price.

In & Around Tulum – Most everything is accessible in Tulum by foot or by bicycle, including the Mayan Ruins.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is a desire to gain a deeper connection to and understanding of myself, something that I've been working hard on for so long and will continue to do in the future. I view a retreat as a wonderful way to focus entirely on this without the distractions of every day life! Nicola

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.
