Past Trips


Retreat to Paradise with Nicole Cronin and her guest Marlene Handler was healing, transformative, and a divine human experience. Nicole's teachings are deeply and strongly felt, and aligned with the higher consciousness. The yoga retreat in its entirely was fluid with a gracious flow and spaciousness. Present Moment Yoga Retreat in Troncones Mexico was the perfect spot where nature and all its elements collide and are ignited. Nicole has contributed so much in the short time I have known her to my growth as a practicing yogi. The yogis that attended Nicole's retreat are extraordinary human beings and a testament to the yoga teacher she is! Marlene Handler, Pelvic Floor Specialist, is delightful and fun! Marlene's work is important and needed. She is an unabashed pioneer bringing awareness to this scared region of our bodies by giving women and men their power and joy; thereby, giving them a sense of safety, and security. Marlene's work is foundational for a healthy and happy life, and truly powerful beyond measure. Thank you both lovely women for your contribution to my healthy and happy life.

Retreats have come a bit later in my life so I may be making up for lost time (not really, I have been on a few!). I’m simply sharing that whether you are young, middle age or senior, this spot really is paradise and Nicole’s yoga is offered with equanimity and kindness. All the classes are original with her supportive guidance and excellent playlists. The food, employees and surroundings of this resort are stellar and everything is carefully prepared for the guest’s optimal enjoyment and experiences. I seem to meet beautiful and talented yoga teachers in my life and I am honored to add Nicole to a handful of dedicated yogi teachers that give me so much joy and share their wisdom so generously. The added surprise of Marlene's expertise and enthusiasm for Pelvic Floor Heath made it the perfect teaching combination.

I knew this retreat was a “yes” for me from the feeling in my gut when I considered it: light, spacious, joyful. And that was a good prediction of how it felt to be on this retreat. Nicole has a talent for bringing together amazing women who show up for themselves and each other. Being in a place of such beauty, tranquility, and ceremony made this connection even more meaningful. And, the yoga!!! I’m flying home feeling peaceful and strong and very, very grateful.

Hands down, best investment I have made in myself in the past 5 years! I’ve had the pleasure to practice with Nicole at The Pad studios for almost a decade. After dreaming of joining one of her retreats, I finally committed to the Retreat to Paradise in Troncones, MX. The experience helped me slow down from the many hats I wear at home (mostly mama of two). I was able to nourish my body and soul with movement, healthy food, and nature. All while making new friendships. Nicole is simply amazing. I appreciate the wisdom she offers as she opens each class and she has a gift of reading the room and offering a practice that you’ll feel connected with each time. 100% recommend. You will thank yourself later!
