Embrace the Edge 7 Day Yoga Retreat in Chacala, Mexico - February 2018 - SOLD OUT

About us

Join Fiji and David February 17-24, 2018 at the Mar de Jade Resort in beautiful Chacala, Mexico, for a 7-day yoga retreat. Do yoga beside a gorgeous, quiet beach that lies between the jungle and the ocean. 

During the 7 days, David and Fiji will be working with the theme 'Embrace the Edge'. In our lives and on our mats we are often challenged to be present with our limits and physical boundaries, and by learning how to continuously lean into our tension and ride the edge in our postures and in our lives, we position ourselves to be ready when opening happens.  

The physical sensation and focus create a level of mental presence that enables us to live fully in the moment. Embracing our edge teaches us to seek out, honor, and respect our limitations and to find the presence and power needed to eventually expand them. 

During the 7 days, Fiji and David will be helping you explore and embrace the edge in your own practice through a variety of approaches, including a dynamic vinyasa-based yoga practice that pushes the physical limits of your own body, along with a gentle, more introspective practice that deepens your ability to relax and feel calm.


Mar de Jade is a Yoga, Wellness & Vacation Retreat Center nestled between the tropical jungle and the pristine sandy beach of Chacala, México. It is an intimate place offering groups and individuals a relaxing, supportive and inspiring environment in a peaceful fishing village.

There are three yoga halls with hardwood floors that overlook the Pacific Ocean, offering exquisite views and a fresh breeze. They have four types of rooms, which you can look at on their website. 

Mar de Jade also features a number of eco-excursions, cultural experiences and a fully equipped spa that has a large outdoor jacuzzi, cold plunge and steam room. And for those that want to take a break from a busy life to just live at a slower pace, there’s always the ocean, warm sun, hammocks and a good book. Do everything… or nothing at all, it’s up to you.

Mar de Jade is dedicated to creating a peaceful and caring environment where you can rest and enjoy a simple way of life in an inspiring natural setting. They live by the values of sustainability, service, spiritual awareness, simplicity and community.

Mar de Jade has been family-run for over 30 years with a strong commitment to community service through the creation of non-profit projects such as a Medical Clinic, a Children's Program and an Organic Farm.
