MEXICO Yoga, Detox & Rejuvenation Retreat

with Micheline Berry & Joey Lugassy

Thursday, May 4 - Sunday, May 7 2017 ~ Nayarit, Mexico

Optional Add-On Day: Monday, May 8

ABOUT THE RETREAT ~ yoga . rejuvenation . sun . sea . soul   

Join Micheline Berry and Joey Lugassy for their annual SPRING Detox & Rejuvenation Retreat, this year seaside in Nayarit, Mexico (1/2 North of Puerto Vallarta). You will restore and rejuvenate at this stunning seaside Villa Spa, just footsteps from the Pacific Ocean, where the rain forest meets the crystalline blue waters of Nayarit. 

“Fire in the Belly, Honey in the Heart” is the dynamic, core detox vinyasa yoga practice and designed for this retreat by Micheline Berry and is accompanied by the evocative music of Joey Lugassy to ignite manipura chakra, the center of our digestive fire, and anahata chakra, the center of fearless compassion. Our daily yoga practice includes transformational poetry, powerful core work, heated vinyasa sequences, twisting postures leading to backbends and landing finally in meditation and deep relaxation.  

Sesame oil self-massages will follow some of our sessions. Come prepared to sweat, burn, and bloom! Open to all levels of yoga and meditation. 

On retreat, you’ll experience transformative inner explorations combined with seaside eco-adventures including swimming, surfing and paddle boarding on pristine ocean waters, often accompanied by the frolic of local dolphins, whales and sea turtles.  

Delicious farm-to-table cuisine (mostly vegetarian with some seafood) complements the journey. Mind-blowing bodywork and ayurvedic treatments are offered by our Villa Spa at a very reasonable additional cost.  

Spring is a powerful time to release pent-up toxins physically, emotionally, and mentally, while renewing your vital energies and recharging creatively. A seaside digital detox of sorts, this retreat will seduce away from stress and smart phone alike, and allow you to unwind with the lull of each ocean wave. 

The result? Nourished vitality and peak states of creativity which will
remain with you long after you return to your urban lives. We hope you can
join us!
