Upcoming Yoga Retreats

Fire and Waves with Aleah Sommers

Location: The Butterfly Landing of Hacienda del Secreto, Mayan Riviera, Mexico

Dates: May 9-12, 2019

Aleah says, “Yoga is a process of purification and awakening to the nature of reality, what is really here, in whatever particular circumstances we find ourselves in the world. Through a systematic approach, we burn up our unhelpful physical, mental and emotional patterns to allow a steady, calm, internal flame of discerning awareness to rise. Along the way, we become increasingly sensitive to the intricate wavelike forms of breath, movement, and mind.

Come to Mexico for a yoga retreat in a spectacular, calm setting, perfectly conducive to our practices as we explore the possibilities and purpose of yoga through these wave patterns and the inner fire. Our setting, The Butterfly Landing at Hacienda del Secretois truly a well-kept secret, tucked away on a hidden beach, far from chaos.”

  • Yoga practices in a gorgeous open-air palapa
  • Meditation and approachable chanting
  • Gentle, empowering pranayama
  • Majestic private suites in a resplendent beachfront villa
  • Fresh, nourishing, lovingly cooked meals
  • Hammocks, infinity pool, and other delightful, artful amenities

  • Endless waves
  • Unstructured time for swimming, snorkeling, long walks along the beach, exploring the local culture, and simply being… in an unbelievable paradise
