About this trip

Freedom 2023 - Connect, Create, Inspire!

with Cornelius Jones Jr 


During this magical 6 day retreat, you will explore all aspects of your being through movement, creative writing, and interpersonal connections.  Cornelius will provide a space for you to be expressive, be seen, an opportunity for you to create, craft, and build upon life tools and share ideas with a community of like-minded individuals that have gathered to retreat with you.   Our focus is to create a meaningful experience through yoga, movement, and creative imagination.   Everyone will organically craft and carve out a daily practice that is meaningful to each individual.  Through the creation and crafting we will have honest conversations with one another that hopefully provides a space of support, healing, and empowerment.  


Our retreat will be hosted at La Joya Hotel & Retreat Center located on the coast of Mexico in Sayulita Nayarit which is only 45 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta.   Minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Sayulita is a winding cobblestone road that leads to playa Escondida, the hidden beach. It’s here, nestled between coconut palms and a quartz adorned boulder on the shore, that you’ll find La Joya.  


La Joya, A family-run boutique hotel and retreat space, offers elegant accommodation, wellness focused amenities and the opportunity to reconnect: to self, to nature, to whatever’s most important to you.  All rooms have 4 walls, air conditioning, high speed wifi, local organic shampoo, conditioner, and body soap.   The property includes Salt Water Pool, Jacuzzi, Sauna, Cold Plunge and on site massage studio (massage appointments are not included as part of the retreat package however you have the option of booking this individually when arriving to the property)  Practice yoga Beachside in the Functional Movement Space.  Participate in daily workshops in the open Air Terrace space.   Enjoy delicious, healthy, and organic Meals, prepared fresh daily by the staff.  During your free time take a walk to the nearby beaches, hike the trails, and/or take a Seven Minute Golf Cart ride from Town.

My week with Cornelius and Steven was magical in every way. I went to take a big exhale after a challenging last 12 months. I got way more out of the week than I could have ever imagined. I left as a better version of myself. I left with more direction and purpose. I left with a sense of self that had been missing for quite some time. The group dynamics were pure magic. I miss them all and can't wait for our reunion. Cornelius and Steven have true super powers in leading a retreat such as this and I feel as if I won the lottery having been able to participate.

This was a divine and synergistic experience for me. Everyone there was suppose to be present participating & supporting the process. Thank You Cornelius & Steven for being such knowledgeable & in tune coaches. I feel that we all had a level of breakthrough in some kind of way. So many tools to learn & walk away with for our lives. Recharging, Releasing & Manifesting was activated in my life for sure. Gratitude & appreciation to you two and our entire group. Namaste 🙏🏽

I feel really blessed to have been on a retreat for 8 wonderful days where nothing, not even a hurricane, could rain on our parade. The trip was so much better than I imagined. Cornelius and Steven did an amazing job preparing all the classes & workshops, while still tuning in to what the group needed and letting their intuition take the reins. They created a magical experience, and attracted a beautiful group of people that I will never forget. I highly recommend this retreat to anyone in need of healing movement, relaxation, and overall FUN!!

My longtime girlfriend and I attended this retreat on the recommendation of one of our friends and it could not have been more incredible. Xinalani is an amazing resort with outstanding food (and drinks), the friendliest staff, and peaceful, relaxing surroundings but what really made this experience special was the energy and instruction Cornelius brought to the yoga sessions and workshops. I went to this retreat being a fringe practicer of yoga - expecting to attend a few sessions here and there - however I left feeling as if I had an epiphany when it came to yoga and could not get enough of it. Cornelius is so passionate and truly loves what he does and wants to share that feeling and passion with his students. Regardless of where you are in your yoga journey, you will find the sessions fun, challenging, and meaningful. I could not recommend this retreat more highly and would jump at the chance to attend again in the future.
