About this trip

⫸Namaskar, Dream Babes!  


Practice, Play, Punk, Pray with Ammie and the Dream Babes for 7 days of Yoga Practice & Ceremonies in a luxury eco beachfront resort in the quaint Mexican town of San Francisco, Nayarit (also known as San Pancho).  The retreat schedule will allow for 2 (sometimes 3) Yoga practices per day.  You will receive and be exposed to a dynamic range of Yoga practices including Pranayama, Asana, Yoga Nidra, Yoga Diet, Discussions, Self Acupressure, Local Ceremonies and much more!  We will also be immersing ourselves into the deeply rich native culture of Mexico through ceremony including a traditional Temazcal Experience, a Cosmology and Ritual Ceremony, and another secret surprise we have in the works. You are the Dream Babes!


Yoga practices that retreat attendees will engage in and be exposed to:


⫸YOGA + DIET

Discussion on Yoga diet and transforming the heart with food. All meals throughout the retreat will embody a Yoga vegetarian diet.


⫸PRANAYAMA

We will discuss and practice breathing techniques, yogic cleansing practices, and Mantras.

This daily 60 min is designed to help students develop and maintain daily self practices and mindfulness. 

*Bring your yoga mala or your chanting beads if you have them.


⫸MASTER CLASS

This energizing class will challenge ALL LEVELS of Yoga practitioners. Attendees will have the opportunity to take this class twice throughout their stay.   Practices will include Vinyasa, Dynamic Yoga exercises, long holds, and inversions. Queuing will include meridians, organs, emotion, and chakra awareness. 


⫸SLOW FLOW + LONG HOLDS + YOGA NIDRA

These classes will include dedication, slow flow, sensitizing movements, and long holds. For ALL BODY TYPES AND LEVELS. These classes work with the deeper tissues of the body. Ammie will also guide the class through the practice and theory of Yoga Nidra!


⫸TRADITIONAL TEMAZCAL

Traditional Temazcal Experience guided by Marciano, the ceremony master and Temazcelero at Subuya jungle retreat steeped in Mexican traditions .  The temazcal represents the belly button of the earth and the rebirth of the participants. We will change into bathing suits and be guided through the 4 gates in the clay sweat lodge where we will give thanks to the earth.  Rituals include prayers, chanting, throwing tobacco on the stones to set intentions for areas of focus and improvement in your life. 


⫸COSMOLOGY CEREMONY

Immersive cosmology experience on a secluded beach near Las Lomas engaging all senses. 

 You’ll be greeted with a sunset bonfire on the beach where we will prepare traditional hot cacao together. After sunset we will feast on a ceremonial 4 course meal prepared by our local Nayarit chef based on the elements (earth, water, fire and air). 

Sol, the ceremonial master will take us on a journey where we’ll learn about the Mexican constellation and rituals as observed from the main Mexican tribes - Wararki, Mayan, Aztecs (Pre-Hispanic). We’ll finish the evening with a sound journey. 


⫸MERIDIAN YOGA THERAPY

60 minutes, 3 available sessions. A beautiful combination of Acupressure and MTPR, Myofascial Release Stretching, Joint Mobilization Massage, Energetic Alignment, Thai Yoga Bodywork.  These hands-on sessions are relaxing, therapeutic, and rejuvenating. This deep pressure bodywork is conducted while fully clothed in yoga attire on a large floor mat or more likely a pile of Mexican blankets.


⫸WHY AN ECO RETREAT?

Because tourism is a force and our responsibility is to ensure that we are respecting and supporting the communities and environments in which we visit. This retreat has kept the local economies, culture, and environments at the forefront of our planning. We partnered with Hotel Maraica because it is Mexican owned, supports green initiatives and collaborates with local businesses and community organizations.  The hotel is designed to exist sustainably and in harmony with its surroundings.  That being said, there is no A/C, TV or WiFi in the rooms.  There is WiFi in the common areas but WiFi and phone service may be unpredictable and at times unavailable.  We are in the jungle after all! It is truly a practice of disconnecting so that you can tune into the experience with your body and spirit.  We will be learning about and honoring a local organization from the area to give thanks for our warm welcoming to beautiful Nayarit.  Let's help preserve the magic that brings us to Mexico!

⇻COVID-19 & International Travel⇻
