Annual Christmas Retreat

December 23 – 29, 2018

Choose a holiday full of health, relaxation, gratitude and meaning. Our annual Christmas Yoga Retreat at the exotic Xinalani Eco-Resort is a perfect way to escape the madness. Spend this holiday practicing yoga (choose up to 4 classes daily!) meditating and rejuvenating along a serene private beach in Mexico — with sun and sea, and surfing, horseback riding, paddle boarding, and kayaking with a group of like-minded, multicultural yogis! Classes are designed for mixed levels, emphasizing safety, awareness—and the joie de vivre of yoga!

Flow of the Day

MORNING

Wake to the rhythmic sound of waves and an intricate chorus of tropical birds, and enjoy a cup of tea while overlooking the ocean. Stroll the beach or take a morning swim before heading up to the Jungle Studio for a morning of body, mind and soul replenishing. Join one or both back-to-back yoga classes: Mindfulness Meditation & Gentle Yoga with Sylvia Ferguson, followed by Vinyasa Yoga with Josie Sykes.

AFTERNOON

Free time to enjoy the sunshine and waves! Head out for kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, surfing or horseback riding. Trek into the forest to a hidden waterfall, take a Mexican cooking class or journey inward with a shaman-led temazcal, followed by a healing massage in the ocean-side spa. A delicious buffet lunch is served from 1:30 to 2:30, followed by plenty of time for a hammock siesta!

EVENING

At sunset, reconvene for Hatha and Alignment with Sylvia and a gentle nervous-system-balancing yoga class with Josie. Following our sunset session is dinner on Xinalani’s ocean-view terrace: a three-course gourmet meal featuring inspired and traditional Mexican recipes, designed for the healthy lifestyle of a yogi. After dinner take a moonlit stroll on the beach, gather with friends around a bonfire or even try your feet at salsa.

Why Retreat?

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

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim
 

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.
