About this trip

Imagine rising amongst the pink sky at  Tribu Todos Santos in beautiful Baja Sur California, in Mexico, to begin your day with the intention of offering a sense of healing, balance, restoration, rejuvenation, wellness, vitality and ease. You will be surrounded by the elements of nature: the palm trees and beach sand, the ocean water a short walk away, the vitality and warmth of the sun, along with the cool off-shore breezes and spacious skies above. Nourishing organic meals will be cooked lovingly for you and offered with joy and the invitation for mindfulness, connection, laughter, kindness and community while you eat. The rest of the day is yours as you wish to create it: an adventure/excursion nearby, or relaxation by the pool or maybe a massage at the spa awaits you.  In the evenings, instead of having to drive anywhere, simply stay connected to the present moment, grounded into your ease and release, and take a short walk back to your teepee, (following your nourishing restorative session—-a “Dr. Kelly special.”) Wonderfully relaxed, invite yourself into a deep sleep under the star-filled night for healing in all realms of mind body and spirit (and the potential to recover from any chronic symptoms of grief or debilitating stress/imbalances/tension/pain/adrenal fatigue/burnout/etc.,.)  Post-slumber, awaken to a new day and begin again... offering your self space and awareness for revivifying your own balance and elements of wellness... while in this very special place, with an amazing group of people, on this one of a kind restorative retreat. 

Join us for this Healing Retreat...

Join us for this six day/five night Yoga Retreat in beautiful MEXICO! Restore, Release, Rejuvenate! This event will take place at  Tribu Todos Santos ( a Yoga Retreat/Boutique Hotel destination,) 

and is geared toward any and all yoga enthusiasts (experienced and beginner practitioners are all welcome!) We will gather daily for a morning yoga practice, integrated with: meditation, community, themed discussion/journaling on balancing dualities of Stillness & Flow, Effort & Ease, Yin & Yang, Grief & Gratitude... and healing through the various elements of earth, water, fire, air, ether. We will invite balance of each element to support our overall wellness, chakra alignment, and synergistic health of mind body spirit and soul. Additionally, there will be evening restoration/relaxation sessions offered, as well as opportunities to add-on (optional) daytime excursions to explore the surrounding area (such as surfing lessons, SUP, kayaking, hiking, shopping in the nearby artists’ town of Todos Santos, etc.,) Other activities to consider include walking the beach, mountain biking, Temezcal, spa services on-site, and of course pool/lounging relaxation time.  The option to participate in Temezcal (an authentic sweat lodge session) will be at a specific time and day, and for an additional fee.  Temezcal is a wonderful ritual that invites a detox and a letting go on the physical level, but also affects us deeply on the emotional and spiritual level, as well. Additionally, a Full Moon Circle/Ceremony will be offered on a specific night of your retreat, to foster grounding, nourishment, connection to the earth and sky/ethers, inviting opportunity for a letting go and an offering of creating of space (within) for transformation... The moon near its peak time of fullness is the perfect time to reflect and offer a letting go/release of what might feel stuck/is no longer serving us/or is even creating an obstacle to our potential growth, joy and contentment in this life... and in particular for us, we will be practicing around a Taurus Full Moon (nourishing earth sign) while in Scorpio Sun season (a powerful time for sitting with our darker heavier feelings and offering them mindful awareness & love.) The season of Autumn is known as "Grief season" and we will be honoring the darkness as well as the light... the reflection of the light from the Full Moon reminds us that even in the darkest of times, there are cycles in nature to revere and connect to, and this will facilitate our mindfulness, compassion & healing... to acknowledge that if stuck, the stuckness is temporary and part of a cycle... and showing up with courage to feel all parts of yourself are welcome. The way we heal is to "feel."  This will be a safe space for sharing and feeling supported in a circle with others holding space for you.  As the retreat days progress we will learn the possibilities of holding dualities, of both, Grief and Gratitude... Lunar and Solar... Yin and Yang... Effort and Ease... Stillness and Flow... Holding on and letting go...

Testimonials


"I have to say, that the Yoga retreat was a little miracle for me.  It was eye-opening how out of touch I have been with my core and center.  Lots going on in the brain, not so much checking in with the heart / minds-eye these past years.  Thank you so much for the opportunity and for creating such a safe space for discovery.  I'm pumped; but I'm also giving myself time for it all to work its way into the chaos and complication of life!  Slowly but surely.

Last week I had the experience of not taking my sleeping meds three nights in a row and sinking into a peaceful sleep, and that is unheard of for me in recent times.  So I'm motivated to keep working on more holistic ways to address my anxiety/stress.  I read your professional bio and I think you are a really good fit for me, especially with the areas you are now making a focus of your practice.

I'm overjoyed! Very grateful for this new connection, on a professional and personal level.

p.s. -- Several people were very envious of my retreat experience and I bet you will get some joiners based on word of mouth of this group.  I hope it's something that I will be able to attend as well, so keep me in the loop!" 

-Julia P.







I came to Kelly three months ago not knowing exactly what to expect. I felt like I was at a

critical moment in my healing process – I was ready to move on from my childhood woundings,

but I felt stuck, and I felt that my stuckness was in part tied to having been in trauma for so

much of my life that my body didn’t know how to relax into a restful state. I found Kelly’s bio in

a systematic search of naturopathic physicians in Seattle, and I just felt safe reading her words;

the way that she described bodies and wellness invited me to see myself as whole and her as

partner, which was such a different (and healing) experience than I’ve encountered in my

lifetime of regular interactions with healthcare professionals. And meeting her – and then

working with her – has brought that safe and healing experience full circle, into my body.

Kelly’s capacity to hold space for my whole self, to be with my body and invite it into deeper

healing, and to support its restoration to balance with her intuitive bodywork and her

compassionate presence, and her consistent affirmation that my body is whole and has

everything it needs to be healed…it’s changed my life. I not only feel better than I have in

years, I am moving out of the trauma and survival mindset that has permeated my life for as

long as I can remember, and acting in ways that are brave and grounded and peaceful and true.

I cannot recommend Kelly highly enough.

-Amy R.






Dr. Kelly Moyaert’s approach is very personal and life-changing. Now I sleep through the night, no longer have afternoon crashes and have much improved energy. Her thoughtful care includes leading me through a therapeutic way of eating that is healing me from the inside out. Above all, she makes me feel as if she’s always by my side, encouraging me that I can do this and it will get better.

-Judy A.

This was my first retreat experience of any sort and all I can say is I am hooked! Dr. Kelly is one hundred percent amazing!! The space she facilitates and holds for healing and community is out of this world. Each day had multiple opportunities for peaceful solitude as well as opportunities to build community and speak truthfully from the heart. The space held as a group was extremely welcoming and there was never any pressure to participate in activities that did not resonate with your truth. There was a loose schedule which allowed for both structure and laxity in enjoying the retreat which I totally loved! The food was both delicious and nourishing for the heart and soul. It was enjoyable to be in an area away from the hustle and bustle of my daily life with people who shared the same values and mindset I do. If you are on the fence about booking a retreat with Dr. Kelly I can assure you - DO IT! You will not be disappointed!
By Jeena C for Nourish Your Heart & Soul Yoga Wellness Retreat on Apr 30, 2024
This was my second retreat with Kelly in Todos Santos and it was such an amazing time of restoration! The practices and integration with the elements seemed to "sink in" much more this year (even though the teachings were different it had the same theme). Just as last year there was plenty of time for self reflection and relaxation along with the wonderful excursion to swim with sea lions and have a beach picnic. The bonds formed between the attendees is special and the time we cultivate together is unmatched. This will be a retreat for me that I will look forward to on a yearly basis.

Beautiful retreat with our fantastic Yoga Teacher, Kelly! Truly restorative and relaxing experience with healthy, yummy meals and fun activities. To celebrate the Spring Equinox with this yoga teacher and group was transformational. Thanks so much Kelly!
By Rosalie M for the Elements of Wellness: Yoga & Meditation Restorative Retreat on Apr 26, 2023
This was the most incredible retreat! Kelly was such a great guide and facilitator for the entire journey. The accomodations were so comfortable, the staff made us feel at home and the food was so fresh and delicious, we were fed like royalty. Everything went seamlessly from start to finish, all of the details were handled so that I didn't need to worry about anything, I was able to relax and reset. I would highly recommend a retreat led by Kelly as her deep knowledge and desire to teach is so clearly expressed in so many ways we were held in this magical space of yoga and fellowship. I am excited to attend her next event!

This was a trip of a lifetime and came just at the right time in my life. I was looking for an escape from everyday life and this retreat was what I needed. Each day started and ended with a yoga practice with a thought provoking theme. Kelly's choice of music to accompany each practice was meaningful and playful. Some classes were challenging and modifications made them accessible to everyone. The small group size made it possible to get to know everyone and share thoughts and feelings we felt like family. The group activities away from the retreat were well planned and fun and gave us more opportunity to become friends with people who we didn't know. We went surfing, paddle boarding and did a silent sundown meditation on the beach. The resort was beautiful and the food was tasty and fresh. I would definitely book another retreat with Kelly.
