About this trip

During the Fourth of July holiday we will immerse in the practice of yoga, and celebrate our personal individual freedoms. The freedom to explore your practice, your intentions, and your heart’s deepest desire. This retreat is all about nurturing and honoring YOU.

Imagine 2 yoga classes a day (a refreshing morning flow and an evening restorative flow), 3 delicious meals, nature hikes, canoeing, swimming, hot tubing, campfires, and serenity. This retreat offers a special opportunity to disconnect from your day to day experience, reconnect with yourself, and make new friends.

<strong>About Your Hosts</strong>

Mike's philosophy is simple; show up. Not just on the mat, but in life. Be present, be humble, practice yoga, honor yourself, and see what unfolds. The classes he teaches are Bhakti Flow, Vinyasa based, focused on breath, and movement. He truly believes that there is a place for yoga in everyone’s life, regardless your of age, size, strength, flexibility or beliefs.

Lauren holds space with strength, authenticity and depth that comes from a deep appreciation of the yogic path instilled in her by her teachers. Her nurturing, soothing disposition combined with her ability to lead a powerful class makes for a unique experience described by students as a true “soul and body work out.”

My mission is to provide the highest level of teaching through dedicated studentship, as well as, continued study and advancement of yoga, movement, and stillness. I strive to create the perfect retreat experience and carry that love, and devotion, into our every day lives. I pay attention to the smallest details, facilitating a seamless retreat experience for you. Most importantly, I am here for you, the student, with love, kindness and devotion.


This trip was set up wonderfully! A perfect way to get away with no stress of arranging anything as the Xinalani crew literally does everything for you. From taking your bags to your rooms to grabbing your empty glasses from your lounger, they do it all. I was impressed on a daily bases with how kind and caring everyone was and how much they sincerely wanted you to be enjoying your stay. Mike and his yogi family are also very attentive and loving. I truly have never felt more comfortable in a communal environment such as this one. All classes were in beautifully built buildings on the mountain side so get on the stair stepper too prepare! Classes and Meals are all scheduled around each other so you don’t have to scramble or rush, making it truly 100% stress free. The proximity to the ocean and jungle coverage made the climate at the resort almost perfect. Was never too hot or too cold in our sleeping rooms and just steps away to hot sun and swimming throughout the entire day. I could say much more but I will end with telling you honestly I am already putting my coins aside to enjoy it all to its fullest next year!! Thank you everyone!

We had a fabulous time! Mike, Abby & Robin were phenomenal! Outstanding week of yoga! Can’t say enough good things about it. I have been telling everyone who will listen how great it was. The food was delicious too! Thank you for an amazing week!

I had a life-changing week. I'll address it in terms of the place and in terms of the practice. This retreat center is an amazing place, with welcoming hosts, incredible food and views, and at once luxurious rooms with constant connection to the mountain-side and beach. The Xinalani staff do so much to make the stay special. Talk with them early and often. The yoga practice was a healing journey. The community of teachers gave us so many tools and so much wisdom. I will be digesting (hopefully through continued practice) what I experienced for a long time. My fellow students were open and caring and willing to make space for each other. This time was a gift. The community we became was a gift.

Mike & Abby’s retreat was just magic! Everything I could have needed or wanted and more. So grateful for the space they hold, the way they teach and the energy they bring. The resort was perfect as well. Absolutely one of my favorite weeks! We will definitely be back for more.

So glad that I participated in the 200 hour immersion instead of the 100 hours. Great group and great teachers. I learned so much and I realize that there is so much more for me to learn and explore. A true adventure continues to unfold for me. Thank you Mike for being my/our guide on this journey! Your time, efforts, shares and teachings are greatly appreciated.

Magical is the best way to describe a week at Xinalani with Mike and Abby. Whether you go alone or with people you know, Mike and Abby foster a loving inclusive community where everyone feels a sense of belonging. Classes are challenging with modifications for yogis such as myself and infused with Bhakti teachings and reflections. Xinalani itself is beautiful. The staff is friendly, kind and most accommodating. The food is delicious and the rooms are wonderful. It’s an experience that will call you back for more....thanks Mike and Abby see you in 2022!!
