About this trip

Hit pause on your day-to-day and join Dani Parker for an all-inclusive movement and wellness retreat at Playa Viva, a unique eco-luxury resort on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. Immersed in stunning natural surroundings, this retreat will offer you the space to refill your cup, nourish your body and mind, and rejuvenate from the inside out.

Our days will include daily movement and mindfulness classes with Dani, delicious farm-to-table meals and refreshments, access to pristine private beach, optional activities from the mountains to the sea, and plenty of time for relaxation amongst the peaceful grounds of Playa Viva.

Nature lovers will have tons of opportunities to explore the beautiful natural surroundings from releasing baby turtles at Playa Viva's onsite turtle conservatory to local adventures including ATV mountain tours, snorkeling, surfing, and more. Looking for more space to rest and rejuvenate? We get it. There will be ample free time to enjoy laying on the beach, reading by the ocean view pool, or treating yourself to an onsite spa treatment.

Give yourself the gift of nourishing your body, mind and spirit in paradise with Dani and our incredible community! You deserve it.

Dani is a mindful movement instructor and community leader on a mission to reshape the way we cultivate personal and collective wellbeing. After years of pushing her body to its physical limit, a severe spinal injury forced Dani to slow down and explore a deeper journey of healing. Through somatic movement, mindfulness + breath, Dani not only healed physically, but experienced a sense of inner vitality that she’d never known before. Passionate about sharing this feeling, Dani developed her signature mindful fitness practice, Come Alive.


It was an amazing yoga retreat with Dani. Dani did everything from detailed packing list several weeks before the trip, to gift bag with mosquitos repel and sunblock to make sure we enjoy our trip. She shared with me how to cross border from Mexico to San Diego which saved me lot of time and money. She sent everyone reminders, what to expect, confirmed our flights so there is airport pick up arranged. It was better and more than I expected, she is full of love and compassion. Her yoga classes on the beach in the shade with ocean view is breathtaking. Because of her positive energy, everyone in the group (14 of us) are bonded. Everyone gets along so well. We had so more laughs and great memories. Two of my friends joined us, even though they are not yogis, they enjoyed every moment of it. I will definitely signed up for her next retreat. -- Anna

Wonderful experience. Dani's classes were challenging but grounding, the food and accommodations at Playa Viva were amazing. Playa Viva is a special place and I hope to go back. I would absolutely recommend this retreat & / this hotel to anyone.
