About The Teacher

Lucia Di Cesare, BSc, RHN, PTS

Lucia is a graduate from the University of Western Ontario, Canada with a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry, BSc.  After spending many years working in the corporate world, she began to notice how stress, lifestyle and diet affected the wellbeing of herself and those around her.  With her scientific background she had a natural curiosity to learn how those factors affected our wellbeing and what we can do about it!


Through the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, CSNN, a science based program focusing on Holistic Health, Lucia became a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, RHN.  From this program she understood that health and wellbeing is a function of Mind, Body and Spirit.  


What is an RHN?  A Registered Holistic Nutritionist is a professional, with a set code of ethics, trained in Natural Nutrition and complementary therapies, whose principal function is to educate individuals and groups about the benefits and health impact of optimal nutrition.

Lucia has always been an athletic person enjoying sports and fitness, but now she understands clearly how exercise is imperative for ones wellbeing.  Therefore, it was only natural that her next step was to obtain her Personal Training Specialist, PTS certification.  She has fitness programs suitable for all levels, try one!


Lucia is currently living on Isla Mujeres promoting a healthy lifestyle.  She feels so fortunate to have met Meg DeClerck at Red Buddha Yoga & Wellness.  With Meg’s gift for Yoga and Meditation and Lucia’s passion for Food and Fitness, they are able to offer their clients a complete program that incorporates Mind, Body & Spirit, Replenish.

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

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.
