About this trip

Imagine rising amongst the pink sky at Pachamama Mexico to begin your day with the intention of restoration, rejuvenation, balance, wellness, vitality and ease. You will be surrounded by the elements of nature: the palm trees and beach sand, the ocean water a short walk away, the vitality and warmth of the sun, along with the cool off-shore breezes and spacious skies above. Nourishing organic meals will be cooked lovingly for you and offered with joy and the invitation for mindfulness, connection, laughter, kindness and community while you eat. The rest of the day is yours as you wish to create it: an adventure/excursion nearby, or relaxation by the pool or maybe a massage at the spa awaits you.  In the evenings, instead of having to drive anywhere, simply stay connected to the present moment, grounded into your ease and release, and take a short walk back to your teepee, (following your nourishing restorative session—-a “Dr. Kelly special.”) Wonderfully relaxed, invite yourself into a deep sleep under the star-filled night for healing in all realms of mind body and spirit (and the potential to recover from any chronic debilitating stress/imbalances/tension/pain/adrenal fatigue/burnout/etc.,.)  Post-slumber, awaken to a new day and begin again... offering your self space and awareness for revivifying your own elements of wellness... while in this very special place, with an amazing group of people, on this one of a kind restorative retreat. 

Join us for this Restorative Retreat...

Join us for this six day/five night Yoga Retreat in beautiful MEXICO! Restore, Release, Rejuvenate! This event will take place at Pachamama Yoga Retreat and Boutique Hotel destination, and is geared toward any and all yoga enthusiasts (experienced and beginner practitioners are all welcome!) We will gather daily for a morning yoga practice, integrated with: meditation, community, themed discussion/journaling on the various elements of earth, water, fire, air, ether, and how to invite balance of each to support our overall wellness, chakra alignment, and synergistic health of mind body spirit and soul. Additionally, there will be evening restoration/relaxation sessions offered, as well as opportunities to add-on (optional) daytime excursions to explore the surrounding area (such as surfing lessons, SUP, kayaking, hiking, shopping in the nearby artists’ town of Todos Santos, etc.,) Other activities to consider include walking the beach, mountain biking, Temezcal, spa services at Pachamama, and of course pool/lounging relaxation time.  The option to participate in Temezcal (an authentic sweat lodge session) will be at a specific time and day, and for an additional fee.  Temezcal is a wonderful ritual that invites a detox and a letting go on the physical level, but also affects us deeply on the emotional and spiritual level, as well.  Lastly, a New Moon Ritual/Ceremony will be offered on the final night of your retreat, to foster balance and inner harmony, and create the space to imbue new life/energy into anything that you'd like to revitalize and/or invite more of into your life, off the mat... The new moon is the perfect time to plant the seeds of intention for manifestation over the next month/moon cycle... We will honor this time with a lunar flow, a yoga nidra, and a realigning of your spirit & vision (for your self/your relationships/your life...) and connect to any heartfelt intention, or "sankalpa" (that you may hold at the time.)

In the rare event of a cancellation by Dr. Kelly Moyaert due to dangerous weather, political unrest, acts of God and other force majeure events, any refund provided will depend upon Dr. Kelly Moyaert receiving a refund from the venue.  Dr. Kelly Moyaert cannot compensate participants for airfare, hotel and travel costs incurred. 


To cover these risks, and safeguard your own investment, again, it is required that all participants purchase travel insurance for their own protection, and specifically is highly recommended that your policy include a “cancel for any reason” option (as a precautionary measure to prevent any individual loss in the rare chance of cancellation.) 


**If any payment is not received by the participant prior to or on the due date for that payment, Dr. Kelly Moyaert has the right to cancel the participant‘s registration for that retreat. In this case no refund will be provided. 


Dr. Kelly Moyaert reserves the right to refuse or cancel any participant’s registration for any reason.  In this case, a full refund will be provided.

Testimonials

 

"I have to say, that the Yoga retreat was a little miracle for me.  It was eye-opening how out of touch I have been with my core and center.  Lots going on in the brain, not so much checking in with the heart / minds-eye these past years.  Thank you so much for the opportunity and for creating such a safe space for discovery.  I'm pumped; but I'm also giving myself time for it all to work its way into the chaos and complication of life!  Slowly but surely.

Last week I had the experience of not taking my sleeping meds three nights in a row and sinking into a peaceful sleep, and that is unheard of for me in recent times.  So I'm motivated to keep working on more holistic ways to address my anxiety/stress.  I read your professional bio and I think you are a really good fit for me, especially with the areas you are now making a focus of your practice.

I'm overjoyed! Very grateful for this new connection, on a professional and personal level.


p.s. -- Several people were very envious of my retreat experience and I bet you will get some joiners based on word of mouth of this group.  I hope it's something that I will be able to attend as well, so keep me in the loop!" 


-Julia P.




 

I came to Kelly three months ago not knowing exactly what to expect. I felt like I was at a

critical moment in my healing process – I was ready to move on from my childhood woundings,

but I felt stuck, and I felt that my stuckness was in part tied to having been in trauma for so

much of my life that my body didn’t know how to relax into a restful state. I found Kelly’s bio in

a systematic search of naturopathic physicians in Seattle, and I just felt safe reading her words;

the way that she described bodies and wellness invited me to see myself as whole and her as

partner, which was such a different (and healing) experience than I’ve encountered in my

lifetime of regular interactions with healthcare professionals. And meeting her – and then

working with her – has brought that safe and healing experience full circle, into my body.

Kelly’s capacity to hold space for my whole self, to be with my body and invite it into deeper

healing, and to support its restoration to balance with her intuitive bodywork and her

compassionate presence, and her consistent affirmation that my body is whole and has

everything it needs to be healed…it’s changed my life. I not only feel better than I have in

years, I am moving out of the trauma and survival mindset that has permeated my life for as

long as I can remember, and acting in ways that are brave and grounded and peaceful and true.

I cannot recommend Kelly highly enough.


-Amy R.




 

Dr. Kelly Moyaert’s approach is very personal and life-changing. Now I sleep through the night, no longer have afternoon crashes and have much improved energy. Her thoughtful care includes leading me through a therapeutic way of eating that is healing me from the inside out. Above all, she makes me feel as if she’s always by my side, encouraging me that I can do this and it will get better.


-Judy A.
