About this trip

The Om for the Holidays Yoga Retreat is a healing journey of body, heart and mind for your holiday season. 


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.

Hi! I'm Renee and I've been on the yoga path for....... 20+ years! I'd have to say my biggest yoga lesson has been learning to be present for the full experience of life; joy, pain, contentment, frustration, boredom, passion- you name it! And the second biggest lesson is that mindfulness and the other principles of yoga are a daily practice. Yoga is really a way of moving through life more awake & aware, more present, and more at ease. As for credentials, I'm a certified E-RYT 200 yoga teacher, trained in hatha, vinyasa, restorative & prenatal yoga. I also have a degree in counseling which has been so essential to helping me understand how to infuse yoga off the mat in daily life. I LOVE sharing the gifts of yoga because this practice has been ESSENTIAL to my own wellbeing. I truly hope this practice helps you as much as it helps me. Oh yeah, and I'm also a mom, love to dance & be outdoors, and live with my hubby & beautiful daughter in sunny San Diego, California. renee@reneegauthier.com

Great time with wonderful people and amazing food. The setting was fabulous! Thank you!!!
This was my first yoga retreat and it surpassed all my expectations. Renee did an amazing job designing a wonderful getaway from everyday life. I had time to relax, restore and grow with other like-minded women. The food was fantastic and the energy was light-hearted, fun and nurturing. Renee lead 3 completely different classes and took us on a hike. She also left time for an introvert like me to escape on my own. I don't know how I'll top this experience but I would certainly try another one of her retreats!

There is something very calming about Renee's presence that inspires reflection, relaxation and renewal. She opened my mind and body with her contagious passion for connecting with the world and helped me to ground again with my core being. Her guided yoga instruction is playful and masterful. And if that weren't enough, she prepared an entire retreat with everything planned with fluidity, flavor and a palpable sense of community. I love this woman and am so grateful she's committed herself to helping people to connect with who they truly are!
