About this trip

Retreat with Brette and Lisa to Playa Viva, a luxurious and environmentally conscious resort in the rugged, unspoiled beauty of Mexico. 

Tend kindly to your body by immersing yourself in nature, practicing yoga next to the ocean, and eating fresh farm-to-table meals. Explore new adventures designed to deepen your connection to nature and the local community, including releasing baby sea turtles into the ocean. And most importantly, relax into the sacred space of retreat life to renew your spirit and align with what matters most to you.

About Playa Viva

Playa Viva is a sustainable boutique hotel located on the western coast of Mexico, just 45 minutes south of Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa Int’l Airport. Nestled between the sparkling water of the Pacific Ocean and the majestic Sierra Madre Mountains near the village of Juluchuca, Playa Viva is situated on a mile of pristine and private beach.

This will be our second trip to Playa Viva and we are very excited to return. 

Watch Playa Viva's video, More Than Just a Hotel.


Suspended in mid-air by palm trees, our group will be staying in treehouses designed to echo the Mobula rays you can see flying out of the ocean in front of Playa Viva. 

The treehouses are spacious and will each accommodate four guests, with two guests in each room. They have a private bathroom, an ocean view, and a small lounge area with an in-floor hammock. Click here for a video tour of a treehouse. 

Cost is $2,900 per person ($500 deposit is required at the time of booking). At the time of booking, you may pay the deposit or pay in full. If you pay only the deposit at the time of booking, there will be (6) $400 payments due each month, starting April 1 through September 1, 2024. WeTravel will send email reminders for payment deadlines.

Brette and Lisa have a combined experience of more than 35 years of teaching yoga. Their unique but perfectly complementary approach to sharing yoga creates a retreat experience with the freedom to play, encouragement to rest, and guidance to reconnect to yourself. This will be their seventh year co-leading a destination yoga retreat.


Brette and Lisa have organized the perfect week of "connection" and recharging. The retreat helped me to recalibrate my compass towards Truth! Forever grateful, Sandhya

Life changing! GO! Brette and Lisa have created a supportive and loving trip that allows you to take it to whatever degree you want. You will definitely find good food, laughter, "Mexico yoga" (very accessible to all...but may take you deep within yourself...it's good!) and great company! I have gone 4 times and each time has brought me a deeper knowing of myself. This last time is having a huge and lasting effect on me....I have a feeling the 5th time is going to be extra magical! :) See you there?
