About this trip

Sayulita Adventure Yoga Retreat 2022



Locale

Sayulita, Mexico




Date

March 5th-11th, 2022




Next spring retreat yourself to a week in the ever-exquisite little ocean-side town of Sayulita, Mexico for an unforgettable week together on the mat, on the water, and on the beach.

 

We'll be staying in a luxurious locale that is a 5 minute walk from the town plaza and a 5 minute walk to the beach called the Casa de la Ballena. 


We'll relax in King or Queen studios/villas complete with a kitchenette that overlook the pool and courtyard and enjoy a central locale that is walking distance to everything in the vibrant village around us. 


Together we'll make the most of our days with daily yoga and meditation, an art workshop, beach days, pranayama and yoga Nidra, a surf lesson, a surprise adventure, and time to slow down, relax, and explore the beauty around us. 


We'll enjoy daily breakfast at our lux locale and head out into the village to explore the local flavors and gastronomic delights. 3 lunches and 3 dinners will be included as well. 

We rise and shine with the sun and begin most days on the mat with a long morning yoga and meditation practice. Then we'll nourish with breakfast and enjoy some free time to relax, explore, or head out for a surf lesson or adventure together. 


We pop about town exploring the best restaurants, and also enjoy taking advantage of having a full kitchenette with fridge in our villas at our lux retreat home for those who want to enjoy a few meals in. 


We'll take a deep dive into our yoga and meditation practices together and into life lived well. We'll aim to enjoy sunset every evening and take in the sights, sounds, art, history, and vibrant culture of Sayulita one blissful day at a time.

Yoga

We will be practicing a strong, dynamic, and compassionate yoga practice and flow marrying together the traditions of Iyengar and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. We will slowly and mindfully weave our way through alignment-based practices each day taking time to workshop asanas and come-see-come-look moments giving students the opportunity to demo postures as we practice. Expect longer holds, break-downs of alignment and postures, and a focus on the breath. Classes are appropriate for all levels from beginners to advanced practitioners and teachers. We ask students to be truly curious and expect to take a deep and joyful dive into the practice and your own inner ecology and wilderness. 




Meditation: 

We will be practicing guided Vipassana and Mindful Meditation during the retreat including breath meditations, heart meditations such as the Loving Kindness/Metta Meditations, and compassion meditations.

Meet Mary Susan Stults 


Born in Fort Payne, Alabama, I was raised in Cedar City, a town in southwest Utah about an hour from Zion National Park. An avid nature lover, I grew up exploring the many hiking trails, rivers, rocks, mountains, canyons, and the endless outdoor beauty of Utah and Colorado with my family and friends. Despite growing up landlocked I grew up with a deep love and appreciation for the ocean and water and that passion has only grown with each passing year. After moving to Boulder, Colorado in 2001 to attend the University of Colorado-Boulder, I made Colorado my mountain home for over 20 years until I traded the mountain life for the island life and moved to Hawaii in 2018 to the Garden Island Kauai.


My yoga and meditation practice and path began with my mother as a child at home in 1992 and continued in the studio at the age of 14 in 1997 with the practice of Ashtanga Yoga as taught by Sri. K Pattabhi Jois. I practiced Hatha, Ashtanga Yoga, and Iyengar Yoga as taught by BKS Iyengar throughout highschool and early college and in 2002 began practicing at Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor's studio, the Yoga Workshop in Boulder, Colorado. 


Years later I had the blessing and great fortune to be introduced and led to Master and Mentor-Teacher Maty Ezraty with whom I studied intensively, mentored with, and assisted until her recent passing. Over thousands of hours and many years of study, mentoring, and practice, Maty influenced my practice and life on and off the yoga mat greatly and will forever be my greatest teacher and influence. Maty encouraged and influenced me to delve deeper into the yoga practice and approach both the daily practice of yoga and life from the subtle body. Over the years I have had the opportunity to practice and learn with many wonderful yoga and meditation teachers aside from Maty including Dharma Mittra, Judith Hanson Lasater, Richard Freeman, Seane Corn, Peter Doobinin, Carrie Owerko, James Brown, Jack Kornfeild, and many others. I look forward to studying with Chuck Miller and Dona Holleman in the future. 


I teach internationally and in the U.S and am a certified 500+HR E RYT Yoga & Meditation teacher, educator, and practitioner, a WPA/Paddle Into Fitness Certified Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) and SUP Yoga teacher, certified Kids Yoga teacher, certified Adaptive Yoga teacher, and am known by all for my enthusiasm, heart, and positive outlook. I teach a knowledgeable, dynamic, refreshing, and compassionate alignment-based yoga practice that intelligently weaves together the traditions of Iyengar Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga. Many describe my energy as contagious, finding my nurturing, wise, soulful, & patient style of teaching to be welcoming & supportive to all. For me being a student of the practice of yoga is as important as being a teacher, we are students first, and teachers second. 


Expect the teachings to be greatly reflective of Maty Ezraty, Sri. K Pattabhis Jois, and BKS Iyengar, as well as from my near 30 years of practice, and classes are open to anyone ready to explore more deeply. I invite all students to let go of expectations, to be truly curious and compassionate, and to embrace and befriend an explorer's mindset within our own inner ecology. I approach and understand yoga as a spiritual practice and discipline and a healing art. We learn to trust our own intuition and innate wisdom, "we do not learn to be intuitive, we already are." The Yoga practice is a re-remembering and recognition of our wholeness and of the truth that we are always evolving, transforming, and are under constant construction; there is infinite room for learning, progressing, and creative expression. The practice offers a moment to awaken and a continuing opportunity to return home to the beauty of our own being and self. As a friend says, "This practice intends to provoke us & to inspire the bigger questions triggering one’s own awakening…the truth is-It is never complete, it is never finished, it’s infinite."


I wholeheartedly believes that Yoga, Meditation, and Stand Up Paddleboarding, and SUP Yoga are for everybody, and am passionate about sharing these gifts, as well as my love of nature, adventure, travel, living well, environmentalism, ocean conservation, and the outdoors with all ages.

Reviews

This yoga and meditation retreat was the perfect reset I needed, spiritually and physically. I'm grateful for all the care and attention Mary put into planning our sessions and activities. There was a comfortable flexibility, with lots of good options, and the right amount of downtime, too. She is knowledgeable, real, and down to earth; a beautiful and refreshing presence. She created a warm and accepting atmosphere, offering us the space to tap into what we needed. I like learning about different kinds of meditations and breath work, it is so incredibly helpful and centering for me. The yoga sessions were revolutionarily helpful in breaking down the foundations of the poses to align properly, and with gentleness. It felt so good to move my body and breathe!

MARY is 5 STARS all the way around......From the moment I met her and throughout the Telluride trip everything was AMAZING. The accommodations, food and extra excursions Mary set up for us despite COVID, despite an unexpected snowstorm in September and juggling schedule changes she made the TRIP by far unforgettable. Her hospitality and Yoga expertise were outstanding. Mary made me feel like I've known her forever and I consider her a wonderful close friend. She is very gifted in her chosen practice and such a BEAUTIFUL SPIRIT. If I could afford it I would love to go on all of Mary's yoga retreats and adventures. Maria LeMieux -Telluride 2020

Being a yoga novice, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. I can honestly say this trip was everything I wanted and more! Mary did an excellent job accommodating participants of every skill level and making everyone feel equally comfortable. There was an instant bond among all the women on the trip that just grew stronger throughout the retreat. The food was phenomenal as were the add-on activities. I loved every minute of it and would highly recommend this trip to anyone who needs a little “me time.” I definitely left more relaxed, yet alive, then when I arrived.
