About this trip

This family-friendly week-long retreat with Rachel Rajput and Lael Humphries will be at Mar De Jade, a magical yoga and meditation retreat center on the Pacific coast village of Chacala, Mexico. Here we’ll spend 8 days and 7 nights deepening our yoga practice and enjoying a digital detox. Unwind in paradise with twice-daily offerings of yoga...feast on healthy and organic farm-to-table buffet meals, take a jungle hike, detoxify in an Aztec Sweat Lodge ceremony, enjoy pampering spa treatments, and much more. Swim in one of the several inviting pools, or take a dip in the ocean waters...enjoy a long walk on the beach into town...simply relax in a hammock overlooking the sea. We will also have an opportunity to visit local children at the nonprofit school run by Mar De Jade and tour their organic farm, and enjoy Stand Up Paddleboarding!

Having attended several of Rachel's Yoga Camp retreats previously, I'm not at all surprised by the fact that this retreat was such a pleasure, truly the best vacation I could've taken during a hectic fall season at work. Like everything Rachel touches, the retreat was well organized and focused on relationship-building. Rachel and Lael are not only wonderful teachers but very welcoming people who created a wonderful community vibe outside our two daily yoga classes. I'm not a huge "sit on the beach and do nothing" vacation type of person, but being in beautiful Mar de Jade, where the ocean is calm and like bath water, the meals are delicious and plentiful, and the people warm and friendly made it a perfect week. Plus, there were many optional activities, like paddle boarding, hiking, and a traditional sweat lodge to do during the day for those of us who are more restless. I could've stayed an entire week in Mar de Jade, but it was nice to experience Mexican culture and celebration in Sayulita at the end of the trip. I would love to return on this retreat and will be encouraging friends from outside the Left Coast community to join me. Thank you for sending me back to the real world much calmer - and more sunburnt.
Excellent trip. Great location, people, teachers, and classes. I thoroughly relaxed and enjoyed Rocket with Lyz and prep for Bakasana with Quamay. The food was incredible!

Amazing! I brought my brother and my two nieces, 7 and 9 and we all had a great time. Food was delicious and healthy and loved the yoga. Rachel has created a wonderful community that I love being a part off. Thank you for this lovely experience!

This was my second trip to Camp Double Bear with Rachel and it was another amazing experience: deeply restorative, yet refreshingly social. Classes with Rachel, Adam, and Lael - and a massage with Kellyn - provided just what I needed when not consuming delicious food or spending time in the hot tub with friends old and new (I made my initial friends in Oakland from 2018's trip). I'll continue to go back during my time in the Bay and I hope to meet you there on a future retreat!
