About this trip

RETREAT POSTPONED UNTIL FALL 2020- Details to come soon.

“We work on ourselves in order to help others, but also we help others in order to work on ourselves.” -Pema Chodron

These are trying times. We are being asked to sit in discomfort and uncertainty like we have never been before. Pushed to examine our internal selves and surface beliefs, patterns and ways of being that may be creating barriers to showing up in community. Through movement and art, Jen and Lila will help you open to deeper parts of yourself. Be a conduit for that which is buried - what is simply waiting to arise. In this virtual retreat you will engage in Yoga and Pilates based movement, guided meditation, art and writing.

Lila and Jen are committed to creating brave and nurturing spaces for learning, moving, and sharing. They believe in the transformative power of movement and art. The retreat is split into two- two hour blocks with a break in between for lunch. A Spotify playlist will be provided.

Thank you Lila for creating a lovely day of self-care and movement. It was exactly what I needed. I enjoyed the balance of stillness, reflection, fun, collaboration, connection and strengthening exercises. The body awareness that classes with you activate last through the days that follow. Enjoyed all the offerings of each modality and instructors. Looking forward to more retreats at home and in person. Thank you for a truly heart-opening experience.

Lila did a fantastic job of creating a well balanced retreat. Holding time for movement, personal reflection and laughter. The facility was peaceful and beautiful. There were amazing views and hiking trails and the accommodations were rustic but very very comfortable. The food was healthy and delicious, i looked forward to every meal. I appreciated that folks could engage when they wanted and step back if they preferred. Looking forward to doing another retreat with Lila soon!

This was my fourth Chacala retreat with Lila. Each year, it’s been the best week of my year. Lila is a brilliant and radiant teacher, as is Jorg. Mar de Jade is heart-stoppingly beautiful, the organic food is healthy and delicious, the sound of the ocean waves so restorative — and the friendships that form and deepen each year at this magical retreat even more so. Can’t wait for next year!

Lila's retreats are always special and Mar de Jade was no exception. The staff was efficient, friendly and very helpful. Food was excellent and the weather cooperated also. Lila and Joerg had good chemistry and I came back in a lot better shape than when I arrived. The folks in our group were awesome.....saw old friends and met new ones.
