Embody YOUR Body

April 6th – 13th, 2019 

From busy schedules to the pull of social media, the very nature of our world today is triggering great disconnection from self. During my retreat, we will focus on what it means to practice embodiment, and I will teach you some invaluable tools for how you can bring yourself back into alignment; body, mind, & soul. 

The location & facility that will be the home for this retreat (just south of the Puerto Vallarta airport) is absolute paradise. It would be a blessing to have you join me for an incredible week of Yoga, Meditation, Nutrition Workshops, healthy delicious food, beach, sand, and sea!

The Xinalani Experience!

Xinalani is a leading retreat centre in Mexico bringing together the best yoga facilities (4 different uniquely different and beautiful yoga studios including a hot yoga studio), beautiful eco-chic accommodations, delicious healthy food and a supportive staff to make your dream retreat come true…. all set on a wide pristine beach and a jungle of seriously breathtaking natural beauty!

The meaning of “Xinalani” in pre-hispanic language is “seeds”. By being an Eco Resort, they attempt to minimize their environmental impact. Therefore, all guest accommodations have low consumption light bulbs (LEDs) and are equipped with two outlets to charge cell phones and camera batteries. Their construction method is extremely organic: no concrete, no land modification, very little footprint. All guests are provided with high-end eco-friendly soaps and shampoos. Toilets are low-flow, and all water is recycled by using it to irrigate our gardens. They use natural and biodegradable cleaning products, and they both recycle and compost wherever possible.

Teshia visited many different retreat centres before selecting Xinalani for the home of her retreat, and she feels confident that the following will facilitate a unforgettable and life changing experience; her exciting and inspiring schedule plan, the professionalism of the Xinalani staff, the top notch facility that is innately Xinalani, and the incredible beauty of the natural surrounding environment.
