RESTORATIVE RETREATSISLA MUJERES, MEXICO
8 Day Luxury Oceanfront Yoga & Meditation Retreat
January 26 – February 2, 2019

Join us for eight relaxed and restorative days in a Caribbean Oceanfront Villa in Isla Mujeres, Mexico.  My name is Jennifer Graham (aka Jenny Penny) and I have been living and working on Isla Mujeres for the last 10 years.  If you have been looking for a retreat that will allow you to relax and take some time to slow down, breathe and center yourself in a tropical Caribbean setting, then please keep reading and see if this retreat calls to you.  Please note all are welcome, no experience is required.

This retreat will be led by myself and I have invited two other very special people.  The first is Maximo Fava; an amazing and versatile yoga and meditation instructor that I met on my own retreat in Puerto Escondido, Mexico.  Max will be leading us through our daily meditation and yoga classes.  Next up we have our incredible nutritionist and Culinary Nutritionist Lucia Di Cesare, an island local who will welcome us each morning with breakfast with an open discussion about our meal and the nutritional benefits along with lunch as well as our Welcome and Goodbye dinners.

Throughout the week there is also the opportunity to partake in two 1 hour Intensive Nutritional Workshops with Lucia, an Ecstatic dance session led by me, a Salsa Class by our local Cuban instructor, a very special Cooking Class with Island native Angelina as well as a Sound & Crystal Healing and Cacao Closing Ceremony led by Max.  Of course we can also help you arrange any additional services or activities that you would like to take part in on the island.

We have not included dinners in this retreat as the island is booming with a variety of amazing local and international cuisine ranging in price all over the island.  We will of course be happy to recommend you our favorites based on what you are looking for that night and we will also be offering coupons for a variety of restaurants for retreat guests only.  Of course group dinners can also be arranged at the house or at any restaurant OR if you feel like a quiet night to yourself delivery of most restaurants can also be arranged.  A variety of healthy snacks will also be available at the house.

When the time comes for you to head back home, you will be feeling a new sense of peace and compassion within yourself.  Even if you only come to sit by the infinity pool in front of the turquoise blues of the Caribbean Sea you cannot help but breathe in that salty sea air and feel at peace.  It will be up to you take what you have learned this week to your home and apply it in your everyday life.

DAY 1.  Today is a relaxed day as we meet and greet our new friends arriving throughout the day and get everyone settled in.  There will be snacks available throughout the day and a late afternoon restorative yoga class held by Max, for those who want to participate.  Keep in mind all activities are optional but we do encourage you to as much as possible to get the most out of your week.  After yoga, you will have a chance to get changed and washed up before we all meet for a group welcome dinner hosted by Lucia to give you some information about the upcoming week and a chance to ask any questions you may have.

DAY 2.  We will start our day by walking the path (10mins) to one of the island’s most stunning and ceremonial spots, South Point (Punta Sur).  The most eastern point in Mexico where Max will lead us through a sunrise meditation and welcome ceremony.  Upon return to the villa Lucia will have our delicious and nutritious breakfast waiting for us.  Every morning there will an opportunity to have an open discussion with Lucia about our meal and any nutritional questions you may have.

Each afternoon will include some time for you to explore the island and simply lay back and relax.  We are always happy to offer you suggestions of things to do and see.  Lunch will be held daily around 12pm.

Late afternoons Max will lead us through a yoga class which can vary in level of difficulty and style.

DAY 3 – 7.  Now that everyone has settled in we will start our daily routine which will begin with morning meditation and yoga led by Max.  Breakfast along with daily nutritional talks with Lucia, some free time to enjoy the island or relax, lunch, some more free time and an afternoon yoga class.
