Words can’t begin to express how grateful I am to have stumbled across Sam and Rachel’s first retreat at La Jolla in Sayulita. I happened to stumble across their retreat after discovering La Jolla through social media and they welcomed me in with open arms after I reached out looking to see if there was availability just a few weeks prior.. Rachel and Sam are amazing individuals who held space for so much expansion, growth, healing, and joy in those few days. If you are thinking about a retreat, do it, you won’t regret it with these two. ❤️

Rachel and Sam were excellent retreat hosts! From accommodations and transportation to yoga and excursions, they thought of everything! Highly recommend one of their future trips.

What an absolutely magical retreat Sam and Rachel put together for us. They took care of every single detail for the guests; from airport transport, to packing lists, to tipping the hotel staff. They put so much thought and work into this retreat and the guests benefitted from their passion for building community and sparking joy through moving meditation. The yoga practices were fun, challenging, varied, and made me feel like magic. I especially appreciated the BANGIN' playlists. The playlists always elevate the practice and this retreat was no different. They really put a lot of thought into them and it showed. Breath-work was also a really memorable experience: emotional, raw, primal; and I felt so safe and cared for by the retreat leaders while in it. The resort we stayed at, La Jolla Sayulita, was beautiful. The staff took care of EVERYTHING for us. The pre-planned meals left me satiated & energized, never feeling bloated or sleepy. Every day was something new, organic, fresh, and delicious. The steak tacos were some of the best tacos I've ever had, anywhere in Mexico. La Jolla has a full cocktail and coffee bar and the restaurant has a wonderful view of the pool & water. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that the best part of the whole retreat was the people I met there. They're all forever friends now and I couldn't be more grateful. If you're looking for wellness, community, joy and memories - come on this retreat.
