the elements of gaia are calling

El Cuyo, Mexico


April 24 - May 1, 2022

8 days, 8 women, 5 elements

yoga, plant medicine, body work, adventure, nourishing food, empowerment, ceremony, singing, dancing, breath-work, heart healing, tantra, are just the beginning of what you will receive

El Cuyo is part of Ria Lagartos Biosphere reserve,

which means it is a protected area where human intervention is prohibited. Ria Lagartos is extremely rich with biodiversity due to the combination of freshwater and saltwater that are present. The reserve is home to flamingoes, turtles, deer, jaguar and thousands of other protected animals. Picture this; you are sitting on the pier with saltwater grazing your face as you spot a dolphin making his way across the horizon. What a blessing that these sacred lands are protected. 

The moment your foot steps on the land, you can feel the high vibrations radiating off the

community and culture.

The beauty of the waters, the people, and the ancient practices are one-of-a-kind.

Paradise found

Visualize opening your eyes to the green lush earth surrounding you. Waking up to the songs of nature; tropical birds, the ocean waves,

the smell of sweet wind traveling through the trees, the air dancing on your skin. 

We will begin our mornings with an intentional practice themed around the earth elements setting a vibrant tone for the day.

Honoring the body every step of the way, we will enjoy a colorful breakfast with cacao, coffee, and tea.

Every meal will cater to nourishing the body, mind, & soul.

From there, it’s a day of exploring the best of what Mexico has to offer and what you have to offer back to this land.

Additionally, there will be free time for you to integrate & slow down. Bask in the sun, take an ocean dip, or go on your own adventure!

The days will end with a relaxing restorative practice with chakra energy healing or a private fire cupping session.

This is the space for you to fully embody the elements & drop into peace.

Can you feel it?

land here

We have 6 different room options all priced at affordable rates for a pristine ecological hotel in a private location in El Cuyo.

We will be practicing with an epic view of the ocean. Prepare yourself for stunning sunrises and sunsets.

This location is aligned with our values and fully dedicated to our retreat. It is a blessing we are allowed to bring a small group here to experience this hidden gem. This is an exclusive area of Mexico and protected, we ask that those joining come with devotion to taking care of the land as she takes care of us.

From there, her interest in traditional medicine blossomed. Studying the interwoven aspects of medicine across cultures is of peak interest to her.
