About this trip

Come discover the magic of Oaxaca with us as we enjoy the long golden beaches, turquoise waters, lush landscapes, and outdoor adventure along the way. Nourish your body and soul with daily yoga and meditation classes and a chef-prepared cuisine that is as delicious as it is healthy. Join us on this unforgettable trip as we experience the cultural heart of Mexico with something to offer for everyone. Whether it's finding peace and tranquility, basking in the tropical sunshine, deepening your yoga practice, or looking for inspiration on and off your mat, the spirit of Oaxaca is sure to energize and uplift you! 


Our journey begins in the charming village of San Agustinillo, known for its pristine beaches, authentic cuisine, friendly locals, and laid-back vibe. We’ll be staying at the Zazil Retreat Center, situated atop a cliff overlooking the town with sweeping views of the Pacific and just a few minutes of walk to the beach. We'll practice yoga daily in Zazil’s beautiful open-air yoga hall complete with palm-thatched roof and stunning ocean views. We’ll enjoy a variety of excursions including surfing lessons, dolphin watching, a Oaxacan cooking class, and optional add-ons such as private photography sessions, Spanish lessons, and more. 


For those choosing to continue their adventure with us on the optional Oaxaca inland tour, we'll travel into the heart of the misty Sierra Madre mountains and stay for two nights at the Terazza de la Tierra, a cozy mountain refuge surrounded by spectacular scenery. Run by a Danish chef, the retreat center grows all of its own organic food on-site, and with over twenty waterfalls, it is as enchanting as it is cozy. Here you can relax in the fresh mountain air with activities such as hiking through alpine cloud forests, taking part in a temezcal ceremony, or visiting a traditional village. 


We’ll wrap up our trip with a two-night stay in the beautiful colonial Oaxaca City - revered by foreigners and Mexicans alike for its superb culinary and cultural offerings.

About your yoga teachers

Gigi Mao has practiced and taught yoga for more than 10 years as an extension of her belief that persistent dedication to the practice of yoga enhances everyone's experience of life. Passionate about living and sharing the wisdom of yoga, Gigi focuses her classes on building inner and outer strength and flexibility through introspection and mindfulness, bringing each student into closer connection with the Truth and Light within themselves. 


Although she hails from Shanghai, China, Gigi considers Austin, Texas her true home. When she isn't downward dogging, you can find her running the Lady Bird Lake trail, belting out 90s Hong Kong pop songs at karaoke, or planning her next international adventure.




Aimee Huffman is an Austin-based yoga and meditation teacher, personal fitness trainer, muscle and stretch therapist, and owner of Aimee Wellness. She has been a dedicated yoga student for over a decade and believes breath, strength, and movement are powerful guides to daily life — encompassing more than physicality — and when paired with meditation and mindfulness exercises, can unlock the door to mental clarity and elevate emotional health. 


You can expect each class with Aimee to be light-hearted and accessible as she invites you to bring happiness, love, and wellbeing into your life through mindful movement, breath awareness, and a touch of playfulness. Whether your goals include strength, flexibility, relaxation, or general fitness, your time with Aimee is always infused with laughter and care. When she isn't on the mat or working with clients, she enjoys live music, impromptu dance parties, and exploring Momma Earth.
