You know the feeling. Life has a way of pulling us in a million different directions – between successful careers, playdates, networking events, or hobbies. And sometimes – while you understand that self care and recharge time is important, you push it to the back burner to accommodate the needs of your family, friends or team. Yes, you’ve read the articles on how important it is to take time to get centered – you may have even presented talks about it! Yet, when you’re living a busy, exciting life, it can be hard to turn those words into actions.This is why, back in 2009, I developed a retreat geared solely towards helping women get to the heart of what transformation means to them. Next year, from January 31 – February 6, get ready for a week of luxurious relaxation, workshops and more during the annual women’s only Transformation Retreat! Join me and other like-minded women in beautiful Isla Mujeres, Mexico for an intimate, carefully designed and professionally facilitated retreat to ensure maximum relaxation and lots of much needed “heart work”.
Does this already sound like what the doctor ordered? Well, keep on reading.
Day 1: Arrival – After arriving into Cancun International Airport, you’ll be transported to Isla Mujeres (which means “The Island of Women” in Spanish), where you will be welcomed by sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea. Grab a complimentary cocktail, mingle with the rest of the group, then enjoy a delectable, fresh traditional island dinner. Catch the sunset and relax with a welcome meditation while overlooking the ocean.
Day 2: Preparation Day – Enjoy a luxurious day of self care, reflection and relaxation. Explore our spacious villa, take a dip in the pool or soak in the sun while reading a juicy novel on our secluded beach! You’ll also be able to choose from a variety of luxurious spa treatments, including an open air massage, chocolate body wrap, facial and/or mani/pedi. Please note that these services are not included in the price of your retreat.
Day 3: Exploration Day – Beginning on Day 3 and throughout Day 6 of the retreat, we will begin each morning with open air yoga on the private resort rooftop palapa. On Exploration Day, our first yoga activity will feature opening asanas, where we will begin to open up our bodies to the work that will take place during the retreat
Following a gourmet breakfast, the “heart work” portion of the retreat will commence. During Exploration Day, we will embark upon a guided workshop where you can take self inventory on your own personal gifts, strengths and desires, including areas of resistance and limitation.
Then, get out and explore! Feeling adventurous? Grab one of the complimentary golf carts for a quick ride to explore the island. There are a plethora of fun island activities to enjoy, including renting a group yacht for the day, visiting historical sites, exploring nature reserves and more. A complete list of things to do will be provided to you, prior to arrival. End your night with a romantic open air dinner in town with the group.
Day 4: Purification Day – Today will be all about detoxing, including the detoxification of fears, old patterns or toxins that sabotage divine potential, beginning with asanas that promote deep organ cleansing. After our workshop, we will head to Isla’s world famous North Beach for a complimentary oceanside massage, where will we also have several cabanas for relaxing fun in the sun. That evening, opt for a night on the town in the city square, enjoy a calm movie night in with girl talk, or whatever your heart desires. Remember, this is time for you to get back to center!
Day 5: Implementation Day – Time to create an action plan! Today’s morning yoga will focus on asanas that promote strength, action, courage and focus. From there, we will work through ways to actually bring your goals and dreams to fruition, namely what you can do to get out of your own way.
Day 6: Manifestation Day – As Paulo Coelho once said, “When you want something, all the universe conspires to help you achieve it.” On the final day of the retreat, our yoga instructor will guide us through poses which promote openness and will allow the universe to come to you. During our final workshop session, we will discuss ways to allow the universe to receive your plans so that you can meet your dreams. The day will end with a seaside ritual on the most sacred and magical part of the island, led by a gifted shaman, followed by a traditional Mexican dinner on a lively thoroughfare.
Day 7: Till Next Time – We’ll end this experience with a final morning meditation and breakfast, as you take in the last bit of the sweet island air and return home full of fresh insights, renewed clarity and new friendships!
This retreat is structured with plenty of downtime for relaxation and reflection by the beach or pool, if desired, as well as many other fun island activities. Attendees leave feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and inspired to live their best lives!
I do hope you’ll consider joining me on January 31 – February 6, 2019 for this luxurious, relaxing and insightful getaway.
