About this trip

Follow your heart! Connect yourself! Explore paradise!

 

Mudra retreats are delighted to offer you daily yoga classes, in the serene and magic site of Tulum archaeological area. Our retreats are the perfect balance of fun, relaxation and adventure, from yoga, to full relaxation under a palm tree, from adventurous experiences like snorkeling, diving and discovering the beauty of the area to meditation classes; whatever you wish to do, we are going to create a tailor-made experience…. just for you!

Finally, our cherry on the cake is the opportunity to enjoy the practice in different locations; classes will be taught in outdoor yoga decks in the jungle and in other unique locations: the magical Mayan cenotes. These are places sacred to the Maya and where the yoga practice will allow our yogis to connect with mother nature whilst their experience will be enhanced by the surrounding natural elements and by the sounds of ancestral instruments. The outcome of the practice is a feeling of being invigorated and connected with the place and the local people in a more intimate way.

We will go above and beyond to provide you with a healthy, fun, adventurous experience where you can connect with yourself and leave the retreat with a more energized spirit.

In our retreat we will also look after your wellbeing by providing healthy and delicious food made with local fresh produce.

Healing, spirituality and inclusivity are our core values and we strive to create THE experience that allows any person to feel safe and express themselves for who they are.

Destination


Ancient Mayan ruins, crystal-clear cenotes and relaxing beaches draw people from around the world to Tulum a small town on Mexico’s Caribbean coast that offers the perfect combination of  relaxation, tranquility and seclusion, whilst you can still  fill your day with the many interesting and exciting activities available  in the area.  Tulum is located 80 miles (130 kilometers) south of Cancun and 40 miles (65 kilometers) south of Playa del Carmen.

Included excursion

 Tour of Valladolid


This tour will include the transfer to a Mexican Hacienda. This site has a beautiful cenote, a sinkhole filled with turquoise water where our yoga class will take place, a mesmerizing setting where you will be surrounded by the unique beauty of these caverns filled with stalactites and stalagmites. After the class you will have lunch and to follow, the visit of the colonial city of Valladolid. The city was funded in the 16th century by the Spanish and it is a hidden gem located in the Yucatan jungle, off the beaten tourist path and it offers a unique opportunity to discover authentic Mayan culture and history.

About your instructors

DANIELA OSPINA

  

Born in Bogota Colombia, she starts studying Classic Ballet at the age of 6; she continues as professional ballerina till the age of 21, whilst getting closer and closer to contemporary dance. 

Graduated in literature studies at the Pontificia Javeriana University, she  moves to Mexico where she studies at the Mazatlan Professional Dance School with a specialization in contemporary dance.

Arriving in  Mexico City, she starts to expand her interests into different type of moves, aiming to find the connection between the body in its current form with the spirit. Exploring also martial arts and Capoeira, she finally approaches Yoga, finding the right place  where the body is seen in a more holistic and inclusive form and where each human being strives to develop a way to become a better self.

She continue her yoga studies with Karunamayi Dasi in 2010 and with Leonardo Estrada Mendez in 2011.

In 2016, she becomes an Ashtanga, Vinyasa and  Hatha yoga teacher within the Mexican Foundation of Universal Yoga in Mexico City.

AUDRA PATTERSON


Audra discovered yoga in 1999 in a small studio in Madison Wisconsin USA and immediately fell in love with yoga. She would go to class and learn the sequence and practice at home the other days of the week. In 2002, she moved to Mexico City to study dance and get a master’s degree in Ecological Restoration in the National Autonomous University of Mexico.  After 10 years of consistent practice of yoga and dance, she decided to get study a Yoga Teacher Training in ashtanga vinyasa yoga, and found her life’s passion. She quickly went on to study a 300 hour certification and taught as many classes as she possibly could. In 2014, Audra moved to Tulum, took another 200 hour certification with Yoga Alliance and assisted multiple teacher trainings in that studio. She went on to teach multiple teacher trainings and retreats as well as classes and workshops for all levels of experience and ability. She has now taught over 7000 hours of classes and is finishing a 300 hour course on biomechanics and yoga with Jules Mitchell. She primarily teaches creative vinyasa, restorative, slow flow, and focuses on body awareness, presence, expansion, and creativity, and can adapt to any level of practice or ability.

The beauty of 'bringing yoga to life' is that it helps us remember that an experience IS usually what we make of it...AND yet, my more current practice of also embodying my human experience has me realizing that it sure does helps when the experience far EXCEEDS any and all expectations! This defines my experience with Mudra Retreats in Tulum. I was surely ripe for a retreat...AND Mudra, without question, delivered. EVERYTHING - from the breath-deepening venues onsite for our twice-daily yoga practice, to the delicious, nutritious and soul-satisfying meals (with our feet in the sand!), the ease and flow of the carefully crafted schedule, the overnight accommodations (simply LOVED all elements of the natural dwellings at the POCNA resort!), to the supervised 'field trips' away from the resort with the privatized experience of diving deeper into the local culture and exploring nature, without the touristy hoopla -- it was all SUCH a Dream. The 'customer experience' was just so beautifully considered and designed, and I am forever grateful for the space and the tender love & care shared by the talented Mudra team. I would recommend this trip with Mudra Retreats to anyone looking for an opportunity to connect deeply with themselves and the beautiful Carribbean beach. 5 stars.

Even though I've spent my career creating wellness retreats, I'd never been on one hosted by anyone other than me! That all changed when I joined Mudra's Tulum retreat in November of 2023 (and I had the time of my life)! What a joy to have everything taken care of, considered, and planned. The Mudra team took excellent care of me and our group - it was very clear that they were devoted to creating the most incredible experience for us. From the Cenote adventures and our wonderful yoga teacher, to the incredible space we stayed and dined in... This retreat was definitely a 5-star experience and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Do not hesitate if you're considering a trip with Mudra! You will be nourished, delighted, and restored in every way possible.

This was the MOST amazing adventure I have ever been on! From start to finish Mudra Retreats took care of everything we needed. Lucia, Elena and Roberto were the kindest and most attentive leaders! Could not beat the outings, the yoga sessions, the area of Tulum, the beaches, the group of friends we made and the Pocna resort. Would definitely recommend this yoga retreat (or anything from Mudra Retreats) in the future to anyone. As a beginner in yoga, traveling with an advanced yoga enthusiast, I was slightly apprehensive if I would be able to partake in the sessions. Our instructor Audra gave so much grace to each of us in order for everyone to have fun and really get in touch with what we needed. The perfect way to get back in touch with self! It was pure magic!

It's been a few weeks since our retreat and I'm still reaping the benefits. Our time in Tulum was peaceful, healing, relaxing, and life changing. Pocna Hotel was a perfect stay; I loved the calm, serene, sleep hotel vibes. The food at the hotel is amazing. The beach front rooms were a dream. I loved my feet in the sand at every meal. Audra, our yoga teacher, was a true inspiration. Each class with her taught me something different and expanded my curiosity with movement, with mindfulness. This retreat had a perfect balance of yoga, activity and plenty of time to be with yourself or do your own thing. I didn't feel rushed or had too many things packed in one day yet each day felt full, in a good way. Elena and Lucia are the most warm and wonderful women and hosts. They think through every detail and really care about making everyone's experience meaningful. Thank you, Mudra! P.S. I wrote about my experience, with some photos: https://stephaniecooley.substack.com/p/are-you-an-illuminator-or-a-diminisher

The fitness and wellness retreat in La Playa (Baja Mexico) was spectacular! It was the first time in my adult life that someone (other than me) planned a perfectly curated vacation…from the arrival airport transfers, all of the meals and activities, as well as the departure transfers. The word “retreat” resonated with me throughout the trip. I loved the diversity of the activities! Our host trainer planned a variety of activities each day: Yoga, Pilates, bootcamp traning contests and Cardio Kickboxing. We also spent time in the local nature - an evening hike to a remote beach (as a group), and had individual activities at our disposal. I paddle boarded one morning for several hours, taking advantage of the low tides and calm waters. Lucia and Roberto (Mudra Retreats) were extremely attentive to each person’s specific needs and requirements. Food allergies were respected and made known in advance to the service staff. This was a super-important issue for me, due to a food allergy to coconut, which is now more widely used in cuisine. Overall- I can’t say enough positive things about my retreat with the Mudra team (Lucia & Roberto) and their selection of fitness professionals, location and accommodations. I look forward to my next Mudra Retreat!

Mudra Retreats have created a beautiful one of a kind experience with this retreat:) Lucia, Elena and Roberto were the kindest and most attentive organizers taking care of all the finest details! Could not beat the outings, the yoga sessions, the area of Tulum, the beaches, the group of friends we made, the "specialized" food for the GF allergy prone woman, and the Pocna resort. Would definitely recommend this yoga retreat (or anything from Mudra Retreats) in the future to anyone. This adventure was pure magic and exactly what I needed to reset this year in life! I will definitely be going on another adventure with Mudra Retreats in the future and would recommend them to anyone and everyone!
