About this trip

This family-friendly week-long retreat with Rachel Rajput and Lael Humphries will take place at Mar De Jade, a magical yoga and meditation retreat center in Chacala, Mexico. Chacala is 41 miles north of Puerta Vallerta, and we will pick you up from the airport at PV and deliver you right to the door of Paradise! 


UPDATED for COVID: Mar De Jade has impeccable cleaning protocols and distancing guidelines. All meals are served outdoors, with all yoga classes in Open-Air studios. Aside from your roommate(s), there is no need for indoor mixing with any other folks, and the property is plenty large enough that it never feels crowded. Please read their updated protocols HERE.


We will spend 8 days and 7 nights deepening our yoga practice and enjoying a true digital detox. Unwind in paradise with twice-daily offerings of yoga. and meditation to soothe your troubled soul. Feast on healthy and organic farm-to-table buffet meals, get a massage, cruise the bay in a Stand Up paddleboard, take a jungle hike, tour the farm, detoxify in an Aztec Sweat Lodge, enjoy pampering spa treatments, swim in the pools, or take a dip in the ocean waters.  *If you must use the Wifi, it is fast, with very few connectivity problems.


But wait! Mar De Jade is also a socially conscious nonprofit organization that has a number of community efforts. It is run by founder Laura del Valle and her daughter Anjelica, who live on the property. Our retreat fees go directly to support:

El Jardin: their local school (free for community children)

El Rancho: their organic permaculture farm, and the new:

Tao De Jade: trade school for underserved teens and single parents.

This was a magical and healing experience, place, and community. Mar de Jade is one of a kind and Rachel has everything taken care of and planned so participants can do as much or as little as they want. First time I can remember not needing a vacation from a vacation when I returned back to "real life" because I was so deeply nurtured and grounded from the retreat. I am already planning to come back as soon as I can.

"The cure for anything is salt water ... sweat, tears or the sea" - Karen Blixen. This retreat had a little of all of these and was the perfect way to emerge from what felt like a long winter. Thank you Rachel & Amelia for leading this incredible womxn's retreat to Mar de Jade. This was my fourth time at this beautiful retreat center, and I know I will be going back again soon.

I had a wonderful experience! I didn't know any of the participants and enjoyed being aware of my thoughts, insecurities, and letting myself get comfortable with the new experience. The classes were balanced beautifully; Lael and Rachel did a fantastic job and taking us through a very complete practice, allowing us time to rest, explore, socialize and practice. I cannot wait to join them again!

I love this retreat so much! This was the third time I joined Rachel, Lael, and Left Coast Power yogis on this unique and revitalizing adventure. Rachel has the formula nailed down and keep improving on it every time. From transportation, connecting us during travel and while in community on the retreat, planning and recruiting us for fun adventures (and reminding us that we can do as little or as much as we want 😉) are just a few points that I appreciate. Mar de Jade and its employees are amazing. They were pulling triple duty this time as there were two other groups on retreats at the same time we were there. Even with the abundance of other folks, we were still treated with kindness, consideration, and assistance in whatever form we needed. The food is amazing, the optional excursions are always a fun way to break up the trip, and the yoga 2X a day by Rachel and Lael is something you can't really put a price tag on. This is one of the most affordable and BOUNTIFUL trips I've ever experienced, and it's why I'm a repeat participator - who's coming with me next year?!
