Over 5 years ago I started organizing this December retreat as mindful, healthy alternative to the holiday hustle and bustle. I craved this kind of experience for myself, and realized that other people do to! And so the tradition of Om for the Holidays began.
My intention for this retreat is to provide the space and opportunity for you to:
Finish up your 2017 with intentional health & wellbeing and move into the new year feeling rested, energized, relaxed & focused.
Immerse yourself in yoga, meditation, healthy eating, hiking, beach & pool time, siestas in the hammock, and lots of time to simply be.
Sleep in magical palapa cabanas on a tropical hillside, just steps away from a private beach. Enjoy the rustic luxury of comfortable beds with hand woven sheets, oil lamps and candles for softly lit evenings, and a unique private bathroom with an open air shower that offers views of jungle & ocean.
Eat organic gourmet meals in a beautiful open air dining room amidst the jungle canopy, overlooking the ocean. Eat breakfast listening to the birds, enjoy a quiet lunch at midday and linger over dinner while gazing at sunset.
When is it?
Retreat begins December 16 in the afternoon/ evening and ends December 21 mid day
Where is it?
The retreat will be held at the Haramara Retreat Center located in Sayulita, Mexico, 25 miles north of Puerto Vallarta.
