About this trip

Gift yourself this week of Self-Care in Mexico at Mar De Jade Retreat Center and go back home feeling rejuvenated, reconnected and inspired.  Let Amber and Colleen lead you through a week of invigorating morning yoga classes and evening workshops focusing on Ayurveda, the science of living in rhythm with yourself and the seasons. The workshops include learning about and practicing self Abhyanga (oil massage), living harmoniously with the seasons through diet and lifestyle, and guided restorative yoga with Marma point therapy. Midday you will have the opportunity to relax pool/ocean side or receive a four handed oil massage from Colleen and Amber. While you relax in paradise, enjoy a one-on-one personalized Ayurvedic consultation with Colleen, certified Ayurvedic Practitioner, and dive deep into how the wisdom of the ancient medical science can benefit YOU! This retreat center is unique because the ocean is literally steps from your room, the yoga space and the dining area. Farm to table meals lovingly prepared from their own garden will be served 3 times a day.  If you choose, you can partake in the many activities provided such as whale watching, hikes through the jungle, boat rides, exploring remote beaches, snorkeling, and detoxing in the Temazcal Sweat Lodge. 


As it shows below, the 4-handed Abhyanga appointments have all been booked. However, we may be able to accommodate 1 or 2 additional Abhyanga treatments. Please message us to request this.

A portion of proceeds from guests’ stays at Mar de Jade support its non-profit programs, operated by MDJ Community Projects, which currently include: El Jardín, a Montessori – Waldorf inspired K – 6 school in Chacala; La Aldea, a trade school for youth who have dropped out of secondary school because of economic hardship; and El Rancho, an Organic Farm that supplies many of the products for Mar de Jade’s delicious meals.

Community Focused

In 1989, Mar de Jade established MDJ Community Projects, a non-profit organization which has supported initiatives from health and wellness programs, youth education, to sustainability and micro-industry projects. All projects are powered by the revenue we make from Mar de Jade, individual donations, and small grants. Over the last three decades, these projects have had an incredibly meaningful impact on the lives of at-risk youth and struggling families in our local communities.

Itinerary

A sample day
in paradise

Watch the sunrise, enjoy a morning yoga class,  eat a delicious organic breakfast, lay on the beach, have a massage, maybe sit by the pool under an umbrella and have an ayurvedic consultation,  followed by a freshly prepared lunch, more relaxing time/hot tubs/stroll on the beach barefoot or take an excursion.  Next, you can feast on the mouth watering dinner and watch the sunset before heading over to attend an evening ayurvedic workshop.  THIS IS BLISS. 


If you are up for more activities, there will be plenty to choose from: Whale watching, hikes through the jungle to remote beaches, sweat lodge ceremony, horseback riding, day trip to Sayulita, or visit the Organic Farm. You can do as much or as little as you choose. 


Amber & Colleen are offering Abhyanga sessions to the attendees on this retreat. Abhyanga is a 4 handed oil massage treatment, and is extremely beneficial to the nervous system as it calms the active mind and nourishes the body.

There are only 5 sessions available, so please reserve one at the time of booking if you are interested.

Amazing trip! Thank you so much for choosing a retreat center that was community-focused, women-run, sustainable, attached to an organic farm and awesome. Amber and Colleen were top notch teachers and fostered a restorative environment. Loved the daily yoga, loved the insight into ayurveda. Came home feeling full and refreshed! Mar de Jade staff was so incredible, warm and genuine - really felt like being at someone's home rather than a hotel/resort.
Mar de Jade was the perfect setting and it was the perfect week. Thank you, Amber and Colleen, for making it such an incredible experience.
PERFECT!!!!!! Absolutely Perfect!
AMAZING can't wait for next year
